Description

Note: Text of book is in French.

In principle all well-known Traditions are based on ‘belief’. Gurdjieff’s teaching, however, is not a matter of belief, but of practising and experiencing what is taught with a discerning spirit, in order to understand, to become conscious and responsible for oneself.

-- This teaching involves ‘work’ on the three main parts or ‘centres’ of the human being: thought, emotion and body, enabling a deepening development of the whole.

-- This teaching has always existed. It surfaces in one form or another, according to the demands and needs of time, place and changing civilisations, whenever humanity is out of balance and loses its reason and lucidity.

-- This teaching is neither religion nor philosophy: it can help us to further our understanding of our own Tradition. The essential is that it is practised in our current daily life, just as it is, without changing it. Becoming conscious is the aim of this teaching, transmitted orally and practically, from teacher to pupil within a group.

Solanges Claustres writes about her direct contact with Gurdjieff during the years from 1941 until his death in 1949. This is a valuable personal account of her inner experiences and impressions drawn from taking part in group meetings and Movements, as well as working closely with Gurdjieff at his Paris flat.

Today she has more than 60 years experience of being involved in this teaching. She led Movements classes from the very beginning, and took part in numerous Movements films. She has led her own work groups on Gurdjieff’s teaching in France, and has also directed Movements classes, and taken part in the guidance of work groups in England, Holland and the U.S.A.

In November 1949, architect Frank Lloyd Wright announced the death of "the greatest man in the world," yet few knew who he was talking about. Enigmatic, misunderstood, declared a charlatan, and recently dubbed "the Rasputin who inspired Mary Poppins," Gurdjieff's life has become a legend. But who really was George Ivanovich Gurdjieff?

Employing the latest research and discoveries, including previously unpublished reminiscences of the real man, Tobias Churton investigates the truth beneath th...

Hamilton-Giles, Peter
Three Hands Press

As the governor of the Dead and the burial ground, the Baron Samedi is one of the most distinctive and potent loa of Haitian Vodou. An imposing figure in black raiment, he is most often pictured as a corpse. His other magical domains, less discussed in esoteric literature, include disruption, obscenity and -- importantly for the practicing sorcerer -- not only the arts of Magic but the very fabric of which it is made.

Emergent from the spiritual crossroads of traditional Vodou and English w...

"As long as we lie to ourselves, the Trickster will be with us. He'll show up just when we least want him, to embarrass us on a first date, to prove us fools in front of the learned company we're trying to impress, to make us miss a power breakfast with that all-important business contact."
