Original Fourth Way Papers and Group Study Guides
Fourth Way Studies might be something different than what you've seen before. We pay close attention to Mr. Gurdjieff's promise:
You can be conscious.
How Fourth Way Studies is Different
You've probably visited other Fourth Way sites. More than likely you're acquainted with some Fourth Way literature and ideas.
Fourth Way school work should assist students in that aim. The teacher, the school, and the students must constantly remember this promise and work for it "whole hog plus the postage."
We offer original works on Fourth Way topics. All papers and guides offered here were originally written as study aids for students in this school. The entire set of papers addresses many Fourth Way topics, but the first series concentrates on ideas about centers. We're unusual for this reason.
Remember that you come here having already understood the necessity of struggling with yourself—only with yourself. Therefore, thank everyone who gives you the opportunity.
“In life never do as others do.”
