In Search of Being
A Way Toward Consciousness
by G. I. Gurdjieff

One hundred years ago in Russia, G.I. Gurdjieff began introducing a spiritual teaching of man’s conscious evolution—a way of gnosis or “knowledge of Being” passed on from remote antiquity. Gurdjieff’s early talks in Europe were published in the form of chronological fragments preserved by his close followers P. D. Ouspensky and Jeanne de Salzmann. 


In Search of Being is a new and comprehensive restatement of Gurdjieff’s early teaching in his own words, speaking directly to all who aspire to a higher level of consciousness.

“Gurdjieff brought us a knowledge of consciousness, a science that shows what we are and our potential capacity, what needs to be developed. He came to bring a teaching, show a way toward consciousness."

--Jeanne de Salzmann
