George Ivanovitch Gurdjieff, who brought an ancient
esoteric teaching to the West, was one of the most important spiritual teachers
of the 20th century. The impact of his ideas, teaching methods and powerful
personality continue to challenge and fascinate seekers of wisdom more than
half a century after his death. His teaching, known as ‘the Work’
- which has come to be called the ‘Fourth Way’ - has greatly influenced
spiritual seekers throughout the world.
Assessments of Gurdjieff by students, followers, journalists, critics, scholars and fellow spiritual teachers are bewilderingly diverse, ranging from ‘charlatan’ and ‘black magician’ to ‘extraordinary spiritual master’ and even ‘A Messenger from Above.’
In light of such a conflicting portrait of Gurdjieff there is a real need to examine his life, teachings and influence on the contemporary world based on an objective, balanced approach free from preconceptions or ideological bias.
The intent of this website is to bring together multiple perspectives from a wide range of sources to examine and evaluate the Gurdjieff phenomena, with the hope of stimulating debate and discussion rather than providing any final definitive statement or conclusion.
