"Georgi Ivanovitch Gurdjieff--The Man, The Teaching, His Mission is the author's ninth and final book on The Fourth Way. Ten years in the making, it is the deepest study yet of this potent seminal spiritual figure of the last century, and the teaching of The Fourth Way. Material from the library archives of Gurdjieff's direct students, much of it not available until recently, and all relevant books written about Gurdjieff have been integrated and assembled in chronological form. The aim is to give an objective, panoramic view of his life, the inner substance of the ancient teaching of spiritual self-development, and his unrelenting mission to introduce and establish The Fourth Way in the West...For those searching for a comprehensive factual presentation of Gurdjieff and the teaching this is the book. It takes its well-deserved place as the deepest exploration and resource yet." --Mary Ellen Korman, A Woman's Work with Gurdjieff, Ramana Maharshi, Krishnamurti, Anandamayi M & Pak Subuh; on book jacket.

The talks in this volume are not verbatim transcriptions. In the early years of Gurdjieff's exposition of the fourth way teaching, he rarely allowed notes to be taken during his talks. The majority of his early talks were written down after the fact by pupils who were present, either individually or collectively, and should be taken as recollections of what people believed Gurdjieff to have said. The provenance of the talks are library archives, private collections, and individuals from all around the world. They have been arranged chronologically and are presented in this edition for the first time in their entirety.

My Dear Father Gurdjieff

Author : Nikolai De Stjernvall

Nikolai de Stjernvall was always close to his "dear father," G.I. Gurdjieff, but especially so during the few months between 1937 and 1938 when he served as his father's attendant and collected such rich experiences. As the only person who lived with Gurdjieff to ever write about him, Nikolai's account is invaluable for providing an intimate and human perspective of his subject unavailable elsewhere. Supplementing his memoirs are two texts by Elizaveta de Stjernvall, his mother, including her account of her trek with Gurdjieff 's entourage across the Caucasus evading the Russian Revolution, and Adele Kafian's account of caring for Katherine Mansfield at Gurdjieff 's Institute during her final days. Nikolai's frankness, Elizaveta's devotion, and Adele's compassion are all faithfully maintained in the translation of Paul Beekman Taylor, Nikolai's boyhood friend who also lived at the Prieure in his youth.
