The ideas that Gurdjieff brought to the Western world have an unprecedented breadth and scope. Through the ongoing attentive study of Gurdjieff’s “scale of worlds” it is possible to begin to glimpse that there is a place in the universe for everything from our immediate perceptions to a potential creative source. At the same time, the possibility is given to see our personal relationships and inner psychology in a new way. The wish to understand can thus gradually be brought to bear in both our personal life and the larger life of which we are a part.
