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.

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
