The Gurdjieff tradition, commonly referred to as "The Work,Ã¢ÂÂ describes peopleÃ¢ÂÂs daily lives as completely mechanical, conducted asleep. Gurdjieff's intent, as with many sacred traditions, was literally to aid in one's awakening. The tools for doing this are many but integrated. The various methods of "The Work" are intended to specifically integrate a personÃ¢ÂÂs physical, emotional, and intellectual centers into a fourth way of consciousness. Like Zen, this tradition has been an oral one emphasizing the relationship of teacher to student. But there have also been extensive writings on this tradition, and The Inner Journey collects some of the best of these in the form of essays, interviews, and fables. To expand readersÃ¢ÂÂ experience and understanding of both Gurdjieff's life and his teachings, the book is bundled with the feature film Meetings with Remarkable Men, Peter BrookÃ¢ÂÂs critically acclaimed adaptation of the early years of GurdjieffÃ¢ÂÂs search for meaning.
