Early in 1949, Mr. Gurdjieff made his last trip from Paris to the United States. At the Hotel Wellington in New York, Willem Nyland, a long-time student, showed Gurdjieff the beginning of an index to the manuscript version of Gurdjieff's book, All and Everything: Beelzebub's Tales to his Grandson. Gurdjieff suggested that the Index be published along with the book.

The undertaking of such a detailed project was far too large for joint publication with the first volume of All and Everything, which occurred in 1950 shortly after Gurdjieff's death. Mr. Nyland gathered members of his group to work on the Index on a weekly basis, using the project as a way to focus on understanding Beelzebub's Tales. The work continued through the 1950s and into the 1960s.

Mr. Nyland was intimately involved in the creation of the Index and it reflects his commitment to the primacy of Gurdjieff's formulation of the ideas of Work on oneself as well as Mr. Nyland's profound understanding of how those ideas are brought to life within All and Everything. Throughout his teaching life Mr. Nyland emphasized the value of the continuous study of Gurdjieff's book. He believed that in the evaluation of one's own Work on oneself, there could be no better tool and so this Index was conceived.

In the early 1990s, a group under the leadership of the late Terry Winter Owens, who had herself taken part in the initial Index project while she was a member of Mr. Nyland's group, re-typed the Index into a digital form. After this took place, the goal of publishing the Index for wider dissemination gained increasing support. Later work commenced with proofreading, copyediting, deleting unnecessarily repeated entries, and many inclusions of new contributions as entries.

The Index now stands as a useful tool to be shared.

Then, through a friend, he discovered shamanism.

The Voynich Manuscript The Voynich Manuscript
Clemens, Raymond
Yale University Press

Many call the fifteenth-century codex, commonly known as the Voynich Manuscript, the world s most mysterious book. Written in an unknown script by an unknown author, the manuscript has no clearer purpose now than when it was rediscovered in 1912 by rare books dealer Wilfrid Voynich. The manuscript appears and disappears throughout history, from the library of the Holy Roman Emperor Rudolf II to a secret sale of books in 1903 by the Society of Jesus in Rome. The book s language has eluded deciphe...

Schulke, Daniel A. (ed)
Three Hands Press

Limited to 800 copies

The Arcanum of the 'fallen angel' Lucifer evokes such concepts as heresy, rebellion, pride, liberation from the bonds of demiurgic oppression, and impetus for human evolution. Meaning 'light bearer', Lucifer has, from his earliest origins, been hailed by religious and artistic countercultures as a patron saint of enlightenment -- the essential quality embodying overthrow of ignorance and the inspired process of revelation. Allied to ancient Gnostic cosmological concepti...
