The Gurdjieff Movements and meetings at which the ideas and methods of the Gurdjieff teaching are explored are two central forms of the Work. Please join us for these new offerings:
Exploring the Teachings of Gurdjieff
G. I. Gurdjieff brought a remarkably diverse teaching to help people who wish to approach the question of awakening. Is there a sense and aim to human existence? How could we find out? Is it true that we live most of our lives in a kind of hypnotic sleep, separated from a deeper reality that is calling to us? To approach these questions Gurdjieff proposed an elegant system of ideas, and concrete methods based on self-observation, working with others both in meetings and practical activities, working alone in very quiet conditions, carrying out movements exercises and sacred dances, and music. The aim was to touch and develop all the parts of a human being, in the context of the great spiritual traditions of the past, and the amazing scientific developments of the modern era. ‘Take the understanding of the East, and the knowledge of the West -- and then seek.’
Exploring the Teachings of Gurdjieff is an invitation to those interested in learning about the ideas of G.I. Gurdjieff, and in bringing your questions about spiritual search to an open forum. This meeting is an opportunity for an exchange about search, meaning, and the practical work of bringing a spiritual practice into your daily life.
