Particularly striking is this candid interview with Frank Sinclair, speaking about The Gurdjieff Foundation in the most recent issue of Parabola., winter 2007. He calls Gurdjieff a man of real being. A man of Presence. Moreover, that theGurdjieff work is a return to Tradition. Gurdjieff was entering to the source of perennial wisdom, "the powerful ancient stream of true knowledge of being." That through his teaching people can change, that they can grow in being, that there can be openings to "the Higher." He adds that "we are called to turn to the source. The the very silence at the core of our being....And the open the the unknown transforming force."
