Editorial Reviews

Review

'Sophia Wellbeloved's Gurdjieff: The Key Concepts is an essential guide for students of Gurdjieff. It will also be of serious interest to students and scholars of all the Western transformational traditions. This book breaks new ground and further serious analysis of Gurdjieff's contribution to the Western cultural trajectory cannot be far in the future.' - Lynn Quirolo, Stopinder: A Gurdjieff Journal For Our TIme

'This book would be an essential addition to any library maintaining an intrest in esoteric traditions or contemporary alternative spirituality.' - Kevin Tingay, Journal of Theosophical History

Top Customer Reviews

Format: Paperback
This work is a remarkable condensation, written with great clarity and comprehension, of the words and terms that appear in the writings by and about G.I. Gurdjieff. The entries devoted to Astrology, Enneagram, and Zodiac are particularly insightful and valuable. But those that explain meanings behind everyday words like Fear, Music, Time, etc., are worth reading and considering--not to mention such obscure and work-specific neologisms as Hasnamuss, Legomonism, and Solioonensius. In all, there are 300 explanatory entries arranged alphabetically. Paul Beekman Taylor contributes a fine Foreword, and Sophia Wellbeloved has added a 12-page bibliography, a 4-page index, and biographical entries on 30 or so of Gurdjieff's pupils, both major and minor. "Gurdjieff: The Key Concepts" is a key book.

Format: Paperback
This is a great companion to Gurdjieff's works, good for those just starting or well acquainted with his writings. Ms. Wellbeloved demystifies several subjects, not just to make it easier for us, but to prompt more questions from us.

Thank goodness for some one like Sophia Wellbeloved and her efforts to bring about a cross reference for the difficult task of understanding the Armenian Mystic's message.
