Based on Russian Mystic George Ivanovich Gurdjieff’s book Meetings with Remarkable Men was first published in English in 1963, the book is basically a recounting of his early life and influences as a child and later adventures in Central Asia in search of secret esoteric schools and enlightenment.

Meetings with Remarkable Men is a 1979 British film directed by Peter Brook. Shot on location in Afghanistan (except for dance sequences, which were filmed in England) starring Terence Stamp, and Dragan Maksimovic as the adult G. I. Gurdjieff.

The film was entered into the 29th Berlin International Film Festival.

The plot involves Gurdjieff and his companion’s search for truth in a series of dialogues and vignettes, much as in the book. Unlike the book, these result in a definite climax Gurdjieff’s initiation into the mysterious Sarmoung Brotherhood.

The film is noteworthy for making public some glimpses of the Gurdjieff movements.

How to perform Yoga Nidra : Art of Yogi Sleep

Yoga nidra or yogi sleep has been used for thousands of years by yogis. In the Upanishads, there are three states of consciousness: waking, dreaming and deep sleep. Yoga nidra allows an individual to leave the waking state, move past the dreaming state and into deep sleep while remaining awake or conscious during the whole process. In yoga nidra, there are no dreams to explore. Instead, it is a process of emptying. It purifies the deeper aspect of the human mind by exploring deep impressions or samskaras. This is essential as samskaras drive our karma.
