Essential Practices of Inner Work for a Time of Transition: An Introduction to Gurdjieff, Bennett and The Fourth Way

“The more difficult the conditions of life the more productive the inner work, always provided you remember the inner work.” -GI Gurdjieff

  • How do I work for presence when so much is unstable and changing in the world?
  • How do I connect with a group of likeminded practitioners to support one another’s work?
  • Can work on myself be a form of service to my family, community, and humanity as a whole?

There are abundant resources for exploring the theory of the Fourth Way of GI Gurdjieff and JG Bennett, with very few opportunities to work with the teaching in a practical way. This series of meetings will focus on inner work and exercises, with an emphasis on methods and techniques. We will make use of the context of a group to share in the energy and insights gleaned from the practice.

When: Two introductory lectures:
September 8th: Introduction on a Path of Transformation. Being whole and thriving in trying times. An opening into the Fourth Way.
September 15th: Learning Presence. An initiation into the Collected State.

Followed by weekly meetings, ongoing though December 15.
