Introduction to the Ideas and
Practice of the Gurdjieff Teaching
Presented by experienced members of the Society,
followed by questions
Upcoming talk: Wednesday May 11, 7:30 pm Honesty in Spiritual Search
The Gurdjieff Work is based
on the notion that development and growth are real possibilities
provided that serious inner work is sustained over time. To
persevere, an attitude of honesty is necessary, and this also needs to
be developed. Self-deception is an obstacle that appears in many
forms and must be seen with a truthful inner eye. The teaching provides
ideas, tools, and fellowship to help orient the seeker.
A panel of four will provide thoughts and first-hand experiences that
testify to the difficulties and the hope in this adventure.

his power of doing, and 'doing' cannot be the result of things which 'happen'.
