We are always interested to make contact with people in organisations of any tradition, Gurdjieff, Ouspensky, or otherwise. Please contact us. If we are all striving to develop ourselves spiritually, then we should have something constructive to discuss.

The Work is not a building, a place, a book, a system, dogma or tradition. The Work is something that lives in the hearts of men and women---
if they can find it.
Maurice Nicoll, MD

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

G. I. Gurdjieff brought the Work to the West at the beginning of the 20th century.
The Work knowledge was placed into a form suitable for the Western mind by P. D. Ouspensky .


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------


The Work is a spiritual discipline.
It carries a core of great ideas and practices which are at the heart of all religions and all ways. This way of inner development, to be pursued by ordinary people in everyday life, has been passed down by word-of-mouth from ancient times to our own through many generations of teachers and students. It requires great self-discipline. It is built on several principles, three of the chief being
Know Yourself, Nothing Too Much, and
VERIFY EVERYTHING FOR YOURSELF.
A School teaching the Work always appears in public for a limited, specific purpose.
A school appears at transition phases in human civilisation. It always produces something for the benefit of the general public, in addition to the self-knowledge achieved by members participating directly in the school. In other words, schools never exist in isolation solely for education or to serve their own ends (no matter how cleverly these ends are disguised),
because the Work is done by ordinary people in everyday life.
