Gurdjieff for a Time Between Worlds
The radical 20th-century Armenian spiritual philosopher G. I. Gurdjieff is still largely unknown within leading-edge developmental, transformational, and regenerative communities. His profound teachings, unusual writing style, and sheer force of character are famously unique in the annals of human wisdom. Was this man a proto-metamodern prophet? Did he use transrational, mythopoetic, and sincerely ironic communication to help incept and prepare a planetary-scale shamanic resurgence of existential understanding for the post-pluralist Epoch of the Metacrisis? Yes and no. Obviously. In this collection of diverse and humorous micro-essays, the spiritual teacher, philosopher, and cultural activist Layman Pascal takes us on a wild intellectual rollercoaster ride with one of history’s most enduringly relevant and cryptic sages.
Gurdjieff for a Time Between Worlds is a unique literary and philosophical object that simultaneously addresses three types of readers. Participants in today’s new thought and new culture networks will find herein a deep, entertaining, and unique introduction to Gurdjieff’s life, mission, teachings, and writing styles. Students and fans of Layman Pascal will discover a rich autobiographical document with crystallized versions of many of his particular suggestions for inner developmental practice. And people already steeped in the lore or the living tradition of Gurdjieff will encounter a fresh and very personal take on many of the quintessential modules of his wisdom-teaching.
