2018. After Gurdjieff's death, the Welches were among a small group of his followers in New York who carried on the teaching and established the Gurdjieff Foundation of New York. Dr. Welch was the president of the Foundation from 1984 until his death in 1997. The Welches worked with groups in New York, Toronto, and Halifax, including the "Friday group," which met at their brownstone in New York. It is from meetings of the Friday group that transcripts were selected for this book.
The teaching of G. I. Gurdjieff places great emphasis on work in groups. In that setting, there can be both an oral transmission of the teaching as well as an opportunity to share experiences and observations in conditions characterized by efforts of conscious attention and sincerity. The result can be a more clear understanding of one's own inner reality. One begins to feel the truth of how one actually is during day-to-day existence, but at the same time, can experience a taste of one's greater possibilities. New cloth bound in dust jacket.
