G. I. Gurdjieff spent his whole life searching for knowledge throughout Asia, the Middle East, and North Africa, relentlessly pursuing an answer to his question: "What is the sense and purpose of life, and in particular human life, on the Earth?" The resulting methods and teachings are drawn from a variety of traditions, and emphasize the possibility of spiritual transformation using the activities of daily life.
Much of the content will be concerned with the development of self-awareness, and the maintenance of that awareness throughout the day. This allows the observing and understanding of the three functions of body, feeling and thought, and then the acquiring techniques and knowledge in order to learn how to bring these three elements of human existence into a more coherent balance.
