Description

Louise Goepfert March was G. I. Gurdjieff's student, secretary, and the translator of the German edition of his magnus opus, Beelzebub's Tales to His Grandson. Her association with him lasted from 1929 until his death in 1949. She devoted the rest of her life to the transmission of his teaching.

In the months preceding her death in 1987, Louise March worked with Annabeth McCorkle to produce this first-hand account of her years with George Ivanovich Gurdjieff. Here in stunning glimpses, Gurdjieff's ideas are discovered at work in the formation of a life dedicated to the search for Truth.

The narrative renders boldly and in rich detail Louise Goepfert’s first meeting with Gurdjieff in New York City. The account of her subsequent years at the Prieure in France -- during which she received Gurdjieff's "all-embracing education" -- is liberally salted with anecdotes describing this great teacher’s unorthodox methods. Unique in the Gurdjieff literature is a chapter devoted to the translation of Beelzebub’s Tales to His Grandson.

This expanded edition includes new material reflective of her life and work. Of note are the inclusion of excerpts of her letters to Alfons Paquet written between 1929 and 1931 and her essay, An Introduction to The Tibetan Book of the Dead, containing some suggestions as to the right method of reading Gurdjieff's Beelzebub's Tales to His Grandson.

Schulke, Daniel A. (ed)
Three Hands Press

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...

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...

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.
