Art, Music, and Writing

Paul Reynard, Nicholas Hlobeczy, William Segal, Laurence Rosenthal, and Christopher Fremantle are artists influenced by Gurdjieff’s teaching. “Photographer Ansel Adams once said, ‘How high your awareness level is determines how much meaning you get from your world.’ A cornerstone of Gurdjieff’s teaching is the need to become more deeply aware, of our inner and outer surroundings—a quest that resonates for many artists.”
