Description

It would be fitting to say of Henri Tracol, a pupil of G. I. Gurdjieff, that all through his life he called many sides of himself into action toward the "harmonious development" advocated by Gurdjieff. For this reason the talks and interviews he gave over the years are of the greatest help to other seekers of truth, or, as he would say, "aspiring seekers of truth."

Whether writing about Gurdjieff or about ancient world traditions, Tracol skillfully draws on a vast knowledge of them as well as of his own and many other cultures. He brings "archetypes" and heroes close enough for us to begin to see more clearly what they might represent for us. He tells us that help is at hand from sacred sources and understandings, and that we can penetrate closer to the source of the common essence of traditional wisdom.

This newly revised and expanded edition includes two of Tracol's earlier works -- The Taste for Things That Are True and Further Talks and Essays -- in their entirety, as well as previously unpublished material from his many visits to the United States in the 1970s and 1980s and all of his remarkable contributions to Parabola during the same period.
