I just saw a very interesting trailer on YouTube.com. It is a video of Mr. Gurdjieff’s search and discovery of the origin of esoteric knowledge as he said before the birth of Christ. Incredibly, it is to be found in prehistoric Egypt. The video comes from Gurdjieff Legacy. There is more information at Gurdjieff in Egypt and the DVD is available in the Gurdjieff Legacy Bookstore.
There is a talk on The Life & Teachings of Carlos Castaneda this coming Wednesday February 20th, in Sacramento at East West Books. Starts at 7:00 PM. Also, in San Rafael the following evening Thursday, February 21st, at the Open Secret Bookstore starting at 7:30 PM. Both look to be great talks on the influence of Castaneda, past and present, don Juan’s identity, the meaning of Castaneda’s “jump into the abyss,” the life of the Nagual and his witches, and the primary source of Castaneda’s ideas—Gurdjieff’s Fourth Way. They both include guided meditation and Conscious Body/Breath Impressions. It is sponsored by Gurdjieff Legacy.
