What is missing?
At certain moments in our lives, we may feel that something is missing—not a material possession but some elusive inner meaning and purpose. Often we assume without question certain beliefs about ourselves. But growth stagnates if we live without inquiry, and our experience of life reaches a plateau. If we take stock, intuition may direct us to a way that provides assistance, knowledge, and method that will substantively alter our way of approaching a moment, a day, our lives.
Gurdjieff taught that each of us has the possibility to experience higher levels of knowing, understanding, being, and consciousness that we ordinarily do not experience. He provided a map: a way of individual inquiry through which the meaning and purpose of our lives can be revealed. He proposed that by inner work we can discover the possibility of a continually deepening awareness and sensitivity.
In this talk, we will explore our capacities for knowledge, understanding, and being, how inner work can lead to the integration of these human capabilities and an entirely new way of living.
