In light of such a conflicting portrait of Gurdjieff there is a real need to examine his life, teachings and influence on the contemporary world based on an objective, balanced approach free from preconceptions or ideological bias.
The intent of this website is to bring together multiple perspectives from a wide range of sources to examine and evaluate the Gurdjieff phenomena, with the hope of stimulating debate and discussion rather than providing any final definitive statement or conclusion
There has been an abundance of conjecture, conflicting theories and misinformation about this crucial phase of his life.
We know little about which countries and regions he visited, the spiritual teachings and traditions he studied, and the source or sources of the vast system of ideas he brought to the West and transmitted to others for almost 40 years.
