JOURNEYS IN ISLAMIC COUNTRIES.

Santa Fe: Bennett Books, 2000. 243 pages. Item #5517

Paperback in new condition.

A long-awaited reprint of Bennett’s near-east diaries; his search for spiritual traditions and teachers connected with the sources of Gurdjieff’s teachings. Contains personal and painful insights into the meaning of spiritual practice. Able to speak several eastern languages, Bennett had no difficulties meeting exceptional teachers from various spiritual traditions during his extensive journeys in the 1950s. “We need balance and we need to touch nature; we need above all a corrective to the mechanicalness of our external existence. Is it not in these countries that we can best hope to find what we need and, having found it, to bring back an understanding that we can share with others?”
