Meetings with Remarkable Men




An exhilarating, life-affirming travelogue and a provocative, rallying invocation to the search for spiritual truth

'Gurdjieff asks us why we are here, what we wish for, what forces we obey. He asks us, above all, if we understand what we are . . .'

Part adventure narrative, part travelogue, part spiritual guide, Meetings with Remarkable Men is suffused with Gurdjieff's unique perspective on life. With vivacity and charm, he organizes his account around portraits of the remarkable men and women who accompanied him through remote parts of the Near East and Central Asia, and who aided his search for hidden knowledge. Among them are Gurdjieff's own father (a traditional bard), a Russian prince dedicated to the search for Truth, a Christian missionary who entered a World Brotherhood deep in Asia, and a woman who escaped slavery to become a trusted member of Gurdjieff's group of fellow seekers.
