Discovering Gurdjieff (New)
by Phillpotts, Dorothy
Book ID: 9781434388711, 1434388719
Usually available in 3-5 days
"This book is very valuable. Today, there are too many books on the Work that are either deliberately impersonal and as a result are just a re-explaining of basic ideas which are already there in Ouspensky. Or else, the purely subjective 'what I felt, what I experienced'. Dorothy strikes a good balance, because the subjective experience in this context is the ground through which precious memories of the Work in its early and soon-to-be forgotten period can be shared." Peter Brook (Author, Film and Theatre Director, and a student of Gurdjieff himself)
Dorothy Phillpotts, born in 1915 and a travel writer for most of her life, has published books and articles on topics as diverse as Living in France and the Art of Letter Writing. Her latest book Discovering Gurdjieff reflects her lifelong interest in Philosophy, Psychology and Religion. Her husband, George, worked for JG Bennett and regularly attended lectures by P.D. Ouspensky before World War II, and it was through him that she became a follower of the Gurdjieff Work, working with Gurdjieff himself, and later becoming a teacher of the Work. She spent much of the last 25 years of her life setting down her memories and ensuring their accuracy: this book is her life's work.

Another key element of its ritual, the elaborate Seal of God, has been found in texts and amulets throughout Europe.
Interest in The Sworn Book of Honorius has grown in recent years, yet no modern translations have been attemptedunt...
