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.

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.

Great introduction.

I have been familiarized with Gurdjieff after many years of listen and reading Osho’s work.

This book was a great introduction and has compelled me to further investigate the fourth way.

I look forward to more learning practices and experiences of Gurdjieffs’.

a great 1000 foot view of The Work.

I've been studying The Work for a year and still struggled with the concepts and vocabulary. this is a quick overview, very easy to understand. this is a great place to start before diving into the commentaries or any other Work books.

Misunderstood

The author has been gotten his teaching wrong in many parts, in my humble opinion.

It does its job well

It is supposed to a beginner's guide to a complex philosophy and way to change one's level being. I think it does its job well.
