Original Fourth Way Papers and Group Study Guides

“Either do nothing—just go to school—or do something nobody else does.”

You've probably visited other Fourth Way sites. More than likely you're acquainted with some of the literature of the Fourth Way. So what's left for a website? Fourth Way socials? Beelzebub's Tales at a discount?

We pay close attention to Mr. Gurdjieff's promise:

You can be conscious.

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 a number of 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.

G. I. Gurdjieff

Gurdjieff's legomonisms have never been more important than they are today.
