Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

Called an insider's view of a secret sect, this memoir chronicles the spiritual journey of the author ( Visions of America , LJ 7/73) and his wife, Nonny, after they join a school that followed the teachings of Gurdjieff. These teachings demand a balancing of body, mind, and heart with conscious labor and intentional suffering. To achieve these goals, Kherdian and Nonny move to a community of dedicated Gurdjieff followers. Finding it too structured and hierarchical, they leave and join another. Eventually they abandon Gurdjieff's teachings altogether and find satisfaction in the secular world. Their leavetaking is neither joyful nor bitter, and there are no startling revelations about this obscure sect. Nevertheless, Kherdian's talented writing retains the reader's interest. For larger collections.

Review

"Kherdians story should be required reading for serious students of Gurdjieff." (Charles Tart, author of Waking Up and Altered States of Consciousness)

"Lively, personal and intense . . . a thoughtful book . . . honest and penetrating." (Gnosis)

"A brave attempt to express the inexpressible." (The New York Times)

"One of the very best accounts I've read of actually being a member of a Gurdjieff group." (Colin Wilson, author of The Outsider and From Atlantis to the Sphinx)

"Simple, direct, uncompromising, bluntly even brutally honest. Anyone who has ever been in the Work will be fascinated by this book . . . a genuinely original book." (John Anthony West, author of Serpent in the Sky)
