Fifth Obligatory





When Gurdjieff died in 1949, the direct spiritual impact of his presence and being ended.

But he left an enduring legacy of priceless value to the contemporary world in the form of his music, movements and sacred dances, and written teachings.

These gifts, created through ‘conscious labours and intentional suffering,’ are food for human spiritual development of the highest order and a bequest for generations to come.
