 G.I. Gurdjieff


"It is only by grounding our awareness in the living sensation of our bodies that the "I Am," our real presence, can awaken."


"Self-observation brings man to the realization of the necessity of self-change. And in observing himself a man notices that self-observation itself brings about certain changes in his inner processes. He begins to understand that self-observation is an instrument of self-change, a means of awakening."


 G.I. Gurdjieff


Georges Ivanovich Gurdjieff (January 13, 1872 – October 29, 1949), was a Greek-Armenian mystic and spiritual teacher. After attracting pupils and disciples of whom a number were already persons of some distinction, he established a school for spiritual development called The Institute for the Harmonious Development of Man. Gurdjieff also gained public recognition as a teacher of sacred dance. He claimed that the teachings he brought to the West from his own experiences and early travels expressed the truth found in other ancient religions and wisdom teachings relating to self-awareness in one's daily life and humanity's place in the universe. It might be summed up by the title of his third series of writings: 'Life is Real Only Then, When 'I Am'.
