Gurdjieff, A Beginner's Guide: How Changing the Way We React to Misplacing our Keys can Transform our Lives | [Gil Friedman]

Gurdjieff, A Beginner's Guide: How Changing the Way We React to Misplacing our Keys can Transform our Lives

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.

Publisher's Summary

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 version 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 the work"

    It doesn't go to any great length into the real items but I'm very glad I bought and listen to this book.
    It brings back to focus the importance of personal development and Gudjieff teachings.

    "An inspiring introduction"

    I chose this book having come across references to Gurdijeff in a number of books I have read and curiosity got the better of me. Friedman's introduction to the work is well written and easy to digest considering the density of the subject and was just the right balance to prompt me to take the study of "the work" further.

    For anyone who is interested in the spiritual aspect of self development but has not found what they are seeking in terms of guidance in mainstream religious settings, this is an interesting route on to the path. This book is just enough to absorb key aspects of the work by way of introduction.

    I really enjoyed it and will be returning to it again and again.
