Description

Many people are unaware of Gurdjieff’s influence on contemporary philosophy and personal development.  From the Ennegram to the Law of Attraction, much of his teaching has spilled into pop culture without his name attached.  Moshe Feldenkrais often referred to G.I. Gurdjieff’s system of self-study and movement. Using film, movement and attention exercises and excerpts of Gurdjieff’s writing, we will explore the parallels between Gurdjieff’s teaching and the Feldenkrais Method.  This experiential workshop includes Feldenkrais movement lessons that either reference Gurdjieff’s ideas or contain principles that correspond to both men’s teachings.
