“It is not important how long one lives, but whether one develops something which can give meaning to life.
What do you wish in life? Why are you on earth?” — Jeanne de Salzmann
The Gurdjieff Work, simply known as the Work, is a spiritual tradition that points to the heart of all great teachings.
Beyond the satisfactions and dissatisfactions of life, there is a universal yearning to awaken one's true nature. It may appear as a sense of something missing in my life, a question about why I'm here, or a brief feeling of connection to something larger than me.
Through special practices of attention, the Work provides a method for men and women to prepare a place for higher influences to appear in their lives. It's a path based on direct experience rather than belief, capable of leading the serious student toward a more intelligent, compassionate, and vibrant existence rooted in consciousness.
