2009. First edition. Ilan Amit tells us of his youth in Israel in the 1950's and attempting to realize his ideals. Then of his meeting Dr. Erich Neumann and Moshe Feldenkrais, who gave him In Search of the Miraculous, his entry into Gurdjieff groups, meeting Dr. Conge, Mme de Salzmann and others.
Ilan Amit writes: " It has often been said that inner growth can come about only in the wake of voluntary suffering. I became blind in middle age. In my experience it is not the suffering in itself that fosters transformation, but the collapse of our carefully constructed shields that comes with it, opening us up for the infinite. My suffering would remain. What of it? Something in me is present to the immensity we are in, with all its absurdity and wonder.." Paperback in new condition. Item #13061
