Exchanges Within

coverExchanges Within: Questions from Everyday Life Selected from Gurdjieff Group Meetings with John Pentland in California 1955-1984, by John Pentland, from Jeremy P. Tarcher Inc., ISBN 1585423653. These selections from nearly 30 years of meetings with John Pentland, a principal student of G.I. Gurdjieff, concentrate on one main question. How do we find within ourselves what we have lost - our reality, wholeness and significance as the human kind of being? These exchanges provide a glimpse into the dynamics of a living teaching and some genuine efforts toward the discovery and practice of meaningful living in the face of forces that drain human life of the sacred.
