Overview
All too often psychological self-study and self-evolution is either theoretical which only serves to stimulate our intellectual mind. More is needed and these exercises and themes focus on the process of experiential learning involving all of our major parts; body, emotions and mind. You are the person that needs to learn to study and experience yourself, and accept what you learn and find. This process of self-study and acceptance is transformational and transmutational. These exercises have been worked on by a group over a four-year period and have provided increased learning for each person. Now they can be used by anyone with any particular background, be it Gurdjieff or other practices, or any particular line of development or spiritual discipline. All that is necessary is an honest wish to learn about oneself. All lines of authentic experiential inner work lead to the same source.
