    Description

    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 vision 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.

    Any additional comments?

    If you know nothing about Gurdjieff this might be of interest but only as a general outline. The profound content of Gurdjieff's teaching is not captured in this book and is, in some cases, completely misunderstood in my opinion. That said I did pick up a few good reminders and insights which may have been worth the hours of listening.

    The work

    I find this book to be an extremely great introduction to Gurdjieff’s concept of the work. This was very eye opening and I’m so grateful I listened to this. I will absolutely be listening to it again. The concepts and ideas stated in this book almost make too much sense, and it’s frightening to my ego to hear them. I would highly recommend this book to anybody on the path of self discovery & development, spirituality, self transformation, and truth. I can only imagine what life could be like if all these principles were valued and APPLIED by the student. I now consider myself to be a student of Gurdjieff, and I’m excited to begin practicing these principles myself. Nobody is going to do the work for you, and this is a good book to present somebody with the tools to begin this work.

    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.

    Very approachable and helpful

    Not only is this a good introduction to the work of Gurdjieff, but as someone who as studied it for years, I got new insight from the simple and direct way that certain concepts were presented. Concepts that I now feel I understand better.

    Repetitive, boring, useless content

    I really had a hard time following the boring and repetitive story. It keeps going on forever. For me the value equals zero and is a loss of time.
