Are you ready for self-transformation? Many spiritual teachers promise transformation, but Georges Ivanovitch Gurdjieff delivers. Gurdjieff (1872-1949) was born in Alexandropol on the border of Russia and Turkey. Gurdjieff's teachings contain many concepts that, taken together, are referred to as the Work. The idea behind the Work is that our first birth is our physical body, which is all we need to get through life. But we are capable of developing into something higher; just as an acorn can stay an acorn and die or develop into an oak tree, we can develop into something higher. Gurdjieff offers a radically original vision of man and his potential for self-development. Gurdjieff, A Beginner's Guide: How Changing the Way We React to Misplacing Our Keys Can Transform Our Lives is a beginning guide to the teachings of Gurdjieff. Practical and eminently easy to listen to, it leads the listener through some of the main concepts necessary for self-transformation.
A Good Introduction To Gurdjieff's Ideas
A good, clear introduction to some of the ideas of 'The Work'. The narrator does a good job holding one's interest and the material within is explained clearly (something that can't often be said when it comes to this type of thing). Gives the listener much to think about and apply to their life, if they so choose.
