Remember Yourselves, Always and Everywhere
Informal discussion of life, philosophy, search for meaning in the midst of life. A secular contemplative tradition in which you don't have to believe anything -- in fact maybe better if you don't. Conversations often range over other contemplative and philosophical traditions. We're not selling anything, nor are we likely to be interested in your sales pitch. All are welcome, no charge, although the price of admission is a sincere question, and a sense-of-humor is always appreciated. We have a FaceBook page, with some introductory material posted, FaceBook/GurdjieffSantaCruz

What we're about

We are a small group that meets regularly to try to apply the ideas and practice of GI Gurdjieff. Mr Gurdjieff brought to the Western World an eclectic mix of spiritual practices, primarily from Central Asia, formulated in a manner that makes them more accessible to people embedded in a modern scientific culture. The focus, as it is in all spiritual traditions, is to awaken to who I am, here in this moment, in this place, in this moment. While rooted in ancient traditions, The Work (as it is sometimes called) requires no belief in supernatural entities or religious beliefs of any kind, but only a willingness to observe, to search, a real longing, for myself here now.
