The Gurdjieff Group Meeting
A ‘Group’ is the Beginning of Everything “A ‘group’ is the beginning of everything. One man can do nothing, can attain nothing... A group of people can do what one man can never do. “You do not realize your own situation. You are in prison. All you can wish for, if you are a sensible man, is to escape. But how escape? It is necessary to tunnel under a wall. One man can do nothing. But let us suppose there are ten or twenty men—if they work in turn and if one covers another they can complete the tunnel and escape. “Furthermore, no one can escape from prison without the help of those who have escaped before. Only they can say in what way escape is possible or can send tools, files, or whatever may be necessary. But one prisoner alone cannot find these people or get into touch with them. An organization is necessary. Nothing can be achieved without an organization.” ~ George Gurdjieff Our Meetings Will Include: — Group Bonding Exercises; — Mindfulness Training; — A Talk on the Teachings; — External Considering/Conscious Communication Skills Training; — Psychological Work; — Inner Exercises & Homework; — Group Hypnosis/Relaxation Training. The Exchange of Observations “In the work of self-study one man begins to accumulate material resulting from self-observation. Twenty people will have twenty times as much material. And every one of them will be able to use the whole of this material because the exchange of observations is one of the purposes of the group's existence.” ~ George Gurdjieff To learn more about our "aim" visit: http://torontogurdjieff.com/our-mission.html

What we're about

AN ANCIENT EARTH-BASED SPIRITUALITY THAT CAN HELP BRING OUR SPECIES BACK IN ALIGNMENT WITH THIS EVOLVING PLANET

According to these ancient mystical teachings, the solution to the problems facing this planet that have been caused by humanity will not be solved by recycling, reducing our dependence on oil, and other popular solutions — but by a fundamental change in our Being.

And this can only really happen on an individual level and one person at a time. Unfortunately, this is one of the the hardest things an individual can do. It is much easier to recycle than it is to "work on oneself" and make the immense effort to become more conscious.

EXPLORING THE PRACTICAL APPLICATION OF THE GURDJIEFF TEACHINGS SO WE CAN BE OF A HIGHER SERVICE TO THIS HOLY PLANET

Allan Clews has spent 37-years as a student of the ancient teachings that some call the Great Knowledge. Teachings that were introduced into the west by the Great Initiate, George Gurdjieff, in 1913 and nurtured by this extraordinary man until his death in Paris in 1949.

Allan posts extensively about these teachings on Facebook and other social media. He has recorded Inner Exercises and various "talks" on these teachings for his Youtube channel (The Toronto Hypnotherapist) — and is now ready to share his understanding with those who "wish" to "grow" their "being" and awaken.

He is looking for people to join the group and attend regular meetings — though this is not a pre-requisite for coming to these meetings. Because this will be a real, mystical working group and not simply a discussion group.

So come once, come twice, come often — or never again — it is entirely up to you.

However, Allan will make one promise, if you join and do the inner work — you will grow and change.

Watch Allan's Self-Remembering Series where he demystifies this profound practice (most Gurdjieff groups will wait a few years to even introduce this to their members);

Allan has being working with these teachings since 1981 and created the following diagram from the ancient science that was taught by George Gurdjieff.

Allan is now one of the foremost experts on this process. And all of George Gurdjieff's teachings from Personality and Essence, Identification, Negative Emotions etc... can be located, or derived from this ancient diagram: The Alchemy of Human Transformation
