First I will give my experience. I spent over 12 years with the Foundation in San Francisco. At some point, I felt I needed to give attention to other things, especially after a death in the family. I left. Nobody coerced me to stay or tried to pressure me other than a few folks saying they would miss me. I spent a few years away, moved to a new state and eventually made contact with a much smaller group in my new state. Gurdjieff groups simply do not have the means to coerce people like a big organization has. Most… Read more »

Well perhaps its our own psychology which hurts us in the end and not anyone else ? I say perhaps because I’m not sure . I was in FOF and later the Institute and a lot of my experiences were completley horrific and if not that then very unpleasant psychic experiences . However , maybe , these were due to my own projections projecting back on myself . And this being the case others would experience similar and from this point of view it reveals just how difficult the 4th way is, and the only person that it worked for… Read more »

there is no such thing a a ‘cult’ of gurdjieff……that’s ridiculous…it’s like saying there is a cult of jesus or muhammed. Gurdjieff was just a man, an extraordinary one who possessed a ‘secret’ knowledge and was a teacher. If you understand anything of his teachings you should be able to work out whether and group purporting to use or follow his methods are genuine or not

I find this an interesting conversation, because I grew up partially a part of the work. I will not say where this is for anonymity, but where I was, there was nothing remotely like what poland7378 implies in the groups. Not forcing one into the work is one of core ideas of the work itself in my experience. Even for me, being raised while my parents were involved in the work, I was put under no pressure whatsoever. Basically what I am getting at is that in my experience, the work is an optional, peaceful practice.

Write expose’s, film their absurdity, secretly record them and expose them. They are like any other cult. You don’t need them, but they need you to survive. Cripple or hurt their income stream and best of all destroy them at every turn. If you can catch them “hurting you” you can get media attention which they hate. They hide behind seeming to be “cultural” and interested in good works. Read about them, have a friend who is in their grasp and she is ruined. All I can say is they are twisted.

Lots of people try to leave cults like these and are punished for it. Most people go crazy long before they leave. It’s difficult to leave. The Gurdjieff groups alive today are all criminals. You need to speak to a family member that you can trust and explain the damage you have suffered. Try the Rick Ross website. Unfortunately they are a very strong underground organization that can find you where .ever you are if they really want you. They are like the Mafia or FBI. You should never have gotten involved with them. The lies and propaganda that they… Read more »
