Description

"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.

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...

Charing, Howard G
Inner Traditions / Bear & Company

After surviving a serious elevator crash in London, Howard G. Charing found he had developed healing touch as well as the ability to hear voices and experience visions--just as a healer in Italy had predicted only a week before the accident. He began using his abilities to heal but felt he needed more guidance and training. He first connected with a national spiritual healing organization, only to be told he was doing everything wrong. Then, through a friend, he discovered shamanism.

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...
