In seeking real transformation, we can
discover our own true nature, through working with other people who are
also seeking. How do we come to the "sense of the meeting"? How can my
exploration of who I really am fit into a deeper understanding of my
place with others and within a larger purpose?
Our true nature
This year, we invite all to come and work
with the ideas and methods of G.I. Gurdjieff and J.G. Bennett, as
together we explore our true nature.
The seminar begins with dinner on the evening
of Saturday, June 23, and continues with morning exercise at 7:30 a.m.
on June 24. We work with Gurdjieff movements, morning exercise,
practical physical work, themes, arts, shared meals, and meditation,
finishing on the morning of July 1.
For a longer visit, consider attending the Movements Seminar, immediately preceding this event.
The summer seminar fee includes programs,
accommodations, and meals. We suggest $450 for the general public, and
$300 for students ages 19-26, with work/study opportunities available.
In choosing your fee amount, consider paying a little more than you
comfortably can afford. There is no charge for children 18 and under.

took a turn at creating and directing our work together. The result was
a tremendously varied and creative schedule that still had a coherence
and structure focused on a clear aim.
It was an experiment in finding new ways of working together.
