Introductory Preparatory Group

The Gurdjieff Work is a spiritual tradition for people who wish to discover their true nature through direct experience.  This is not a religious way, though it shares a common aim with the great teachings of the world: liberation. 

If you have tried other paths and been disappointed, or realized that spiritual advancement isn't possible without the support of others, you're not alone.  The Rochester Gurdjieff Center is a spiritual organization designed to help members sincerely see and struggle with various parts of themselves in order to develop being. 

Entree to the Rochester Gurdjieff community begins with a Preparatory group.   Preparatory group members meet weekly to explore the main ideas of the Gurdjieff tradition and share observations from their application of Gurdjieff's ideas.  No prior experience is necessary, just a serious inner wish.

  • Connect with a fundamental experience of oneself through the work of attention

  • Discover a community of local people devoted to living more consciously

  • Learn how to maintain a more compassionate and joyful state of awareness

The Preparatory group accepts interested people on an ongoing basis.

Here there are neither Russians nor English, Jews nor Christians, but only those who pursue one aim — 
to be able to be.
