Helen was an important figure in her own right both as a concert pianist, composer, and, in effect, co-leader of the Adie group. Seymour B. Ginsburg Gurdjieff Unveiled

Joseph Azize has successfully straddled that perilous territory between academic objectivity and active participation, deftly managing to reconcile these often hostile viewpoints. Dr Helen Farley University of Queensland
