Spotlight: Speaking On The Works Of G. I. Gurdjieff

POSTED August 10, 2022 IN

Gurdjieff (1825-1935) was Russian philosopher, mystic, spiritual teacher and composer. He taught that most humans do not possess a unified consciousness and thus live their lives in a state of hypnotic “waking sleep”, but that it is possible to awaken to a higher state of consciousness and achieve full human potential. Gurdjieff described a method attempting to do so, calling the discipline “The Work”. Here several wisdom teachers speak on his work and legacy. These are archived New Dimensions programs.
