Further Explorations 

 

 

 

 

Gurdjieff brought a vast system of psychological and cosmological ideas to the West specifically suited for the spiritual needs and possibilities of the contemporary world. The psychological ideas in particular were expressed in a very exact language which resonates with the reality of everyday life and can be verified by personal experience. These powerful teachings on human transformation are congruent with the wisdom embodied in the esoteric heart of many spiritual traditions such as Taoism, Zen, Tibetan Buddhism, Advaita Vedanta and Sufism.
Further Explorations is intended to illuminate many of Gurdjieff's essential teachings by enlarging the perspective to include the voices of other authentic spiritual teachers and teachings.
