“Only a man who fully realizes the difficulty of awakening can understand the necessity of long and hard work in order to awake.
But in order to achieve all this and to obtain results a certain number of people must work together.
Therefore a man who wants to awake must look for other people who also want to awake and work together with them”.
G.I. Gurdjieff in “In Search of the Miraculous” –PD Ouspensky
Choose precise tasks for yourself. Before you immerse yourself in life, when you are alone at home, let go of your tensions and make a program for yourself. Represent to yourself how you will act during the day, and give yourself your word to follow this program. --G.I. Gurdjieff
The Gurdjieff Foundation of Texas is a non-profit organization dedicated to a continuing study of the ideas of G.I. Gurdjieff. The Houston Group is related to the Gurdjieff Foundation in New York as well as the world-wide study of these ideas.
We employ the forms for study instituted by Gurdjieff such as practical craft work, cooking, discussion, exchange, and sacred dance. We also follow the practice of sitting (a short, guided meditation).
