In principle all well-known
Traditions are based on ‘belief’. Gurdjieff’s teaching,
however, is not a matter of belief, but of practising and experiencing
what is taught with a discerning spirit, in order to understand, to become
conscious and responsible for oneself.
Solanges Claustres writes about her direct contact with Gurdjieff during the years from 1941 until his death in 1949. This is a valuable personal account of her inner experiences and impressions drawn from taking part in group meetings and Movements, as well as working closely with Gurdjieff at his Paris flat.
Today she has more
than 60 years experience of being involved in this teaching. She led Movements
classes from the very beginning, and took part in numerous Movements films.
She has led her own work groups on Gurdjieff’s teaching in France,
and has also directed Movements classes, and taken part in the guidance
of work groups in England, Holland and the U.S.A.
