Affirming Difficulty

The Gurdjieff teaching necessarily places the individual in front of an array of obstacles or difficulties.

New capabilities are needed, for example, the ability to observe oneself honestly, the ability to become quiet inside, and the ability to struggle with the powerful forces of habit and conditioning.  In order to persist with such challenges, one must find a new kind of affirmation in the face of difficulty.

A panel of four will present various points of view on the sorts of difficulties that a student encounters and the ways in which one's attitude toward difficulties evolves over time.

We welcome your questions.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
