More than 100 years ago, G.I. Gurdjieff initiated an audacious plan to begin the transition from an old world order to a new epoch based on universal cooperation, and active human participation in the universal reciprocal maintenance. While remaining largely invisible to the mainstream, Gurdjieff exerted a far-reaching and enduring influence on modern thought, and left behind him a revolutionary teaching, taking as his starting point that men and women live in a world of illusion which renders us incapable of truly intentional action.
The difference between what we do and what we are capable of doing would suffice to solve most of the world’s problems.
John Bennett continued this work, and experimented with the training of groups of men and women who were willing to accept the challenge posed by this dilemma – that we see the need for change in ourselves and in our interactions with the world and each other, but do not possess the ability to bring about such changes.
John Bennett drew attention to the importance of humanity’s part in ALL LIFE, AND THE INTELLIGENCE BEYOND HUMANITY THAT IS EMBODIED IN THE NATURAL WORLD.
