DOWN FROM ABOVE, UP FROM BELOW: Working with Lord Pentland and the Gurdjieff Ideas

Epigraph, 2021. Roger Lipsey says, "This is a book that has been greatly needed since Lord Pentland's passing in 1984. Among the many hundreds of pupils whom he served and led as our teacher of the Gurdjieff way, who would write it, who could write it? Madeline Gold has proved able, and more than able. Working as Lord Pentland's secretary for some years, and always his pupil and friend, she was formidably receptive to the wisdom he offered daily through word and incident, all the while remaining strongly her own person - questioning, responding, suffering, maturing. As if there were a cuneiform tablet somewhere in her, it was all marked down and now finds its voice - her clear, uncluttered, astute voice - in these pages. Missing from transcripts of meetings even with great teachers is the immediate perception of their presence, far and away the most important thing at the time. What really was it like to be around such a person? Madeline Gold somehow finds the way. This is what it was like to be around him. A radiant teacher; a radiant book. " Paperback in new condition.
