Pivot Point: Becoming Involved in a Spiritual Community

Many people regard the moment of becoming involved in a spiritual community as a pivotal point in their lives.  Something new begins and, for many, life will never be the same as before.

Four members of the Gurdjieff Society will discuss what they were looking for when they decided to become involved.  What attracted them to the Gurdjieff teaching and community?

Going a step further, they will address the question what, after years of experience with the teaching and the community, attracts them now?  What holds their interest?

Our talks are held at
First Parish Church of Cambridge
3 Church Street, Cambridge, MA
Harvard Square T-stop

The evolution of man is the evolution of his consciousness. And 'consciousness' cannot evolve unconsciously.  The evolution of man is the evolution of his will, and 'will' cannot evolve involuntarily.  The evolution of man is the evolution of his power of doing, and 'doing' cannot be the result of things which 'happen'.

G. I. Gurdjieff
