by Guillon, Ricardo
Publisher: Traditional Studies Press
Book ID: 9780919608153, 0919608159
Record of a Search, Working with Michel Conge in France by Ricardo Guillon — a translation of Guillon’s Notas de una Busqueda, published in Santiago in 1993
From the book: Some members of the group who had just returned from holidays were lamenting that they had left for the summer with charged batteries, but that little by little, everything was ebbing away. They said they were losing attention and were giving up their exercises.
“This is why a group is necessary,” Dr. Conge responded. “We learn from others how to recharge, until we are finally able to do this by ourselves.”
“As with all organic life on earth,” he continued, “we are subject to having our energy constantly drained. All organic life is governed by planetary laws, such that, without our knowing it, we are food for other organisms. Fortunately, a possibility exists for us to escape being an object that can be eaten or manipulated. That is our task.”
About Michel Conge: Michel Conge was born in Pau, southwest France, in 1912. Early in his life he decided to devote himself to “seeking the real behind appearances”. His quest first led him to medicine. While working as a medical biologist at the Pasteur Institute in Paris he met the writer René Daumal, who introduced him to Jeanne de Salzmann. She soon invited him to work directly with G.I. Gurdjieff. Beginning in 1949, and with the active encouragement of Gurdjieff and Mme de Salzmann, Conge gathered around himself and his wife, Gilles, a nucleus of men and women whose search he accompanied and led until his death in 1984.
The book includes a talk by Conge given in Santiago in August 1966.

Interest in The Sworn Book of Honorius has grown in recent years, yet no modern translations have been attemptedunt...

Jailbreaking the Goddess is a revolutionary revisioning of the feminine divine. Where the maiden, mother, crone archetypal system is tied to female biology and physic...
