Recent highlights:


John Wilkinson interviewed by Kristina Turner

John Wilkinson has dedicated his life to investigating many of the world's paths in his effort to uncover a way that works in this time and place. John was a pupil of J G Bennett and specialised in the Gurdjieff Movements. After Mr. Bennett's death he studied with other enlightened teachers under whose guidance he researched widely in India and the Middle East. Subsequently, he began to find his own particular Path, which he now shares with those who listen.


"What I am trying to encourage you to do is to take an interest in yourself, in your makeup, what you are and what your capabilities are. All real investigation is investigation of yourself. When I get into this independent thinking I am starting to investigate the infinite world that I am because truly there are infinite worlds within us, from the highest to the lowest."



Article by Richard Lloyd: Finding Mr. Gurdjieff

Richard Lloyd is an American guitarist, singer and songwriter, probably best-known as a former member of the rock band, Television. According to Wikipedia, he is one of rock’s true weirdos. To others, he is one of its legends.


“This article is about my search, and the undeniable fact that for me, I have found the pearl of great worth, the secret of the perpetual motion machine and how to make gold out of the mud of my own existence. I hope this resonates with some seekers who may feel as though they need a stable path and a sure way out of the existential terror of useless existence, and who wish to find a way to become truly useful to the Earth, the planets, the solar system and to the life which exists here on Earth. There is a way. It is narrow, sublime and elusive, but it can be found, by the serious and the sincere.”



Elan Sicroff interviewed by Reijo Oksanen

Elan Sicroff trained as a classical pianist at the Juilliard School and the Oberlin Conservatory. He attended the International Academy for Continuous Education in Sherborne, England, as a student and later as music director. The program was run by J. G. Bennett and Mr. Bennett introduced Elan to Mme. De Hartmann, wife of the composer. From 1975 until 1979 Elan studied with her and performed de Hartmann’s works. In 1982 he made a tour of the U.S. and since then he has given numerous recitals of this music at concert halls around the world.


“Now let’s go back to our conversation about Madame de Hartmann where she was saying, “You play the notes, you just play the notes, you don't have a connection, nothing comes through.” There are two parts. The instrument is not just the piano. There is another part of the instrument, myself, and myself has to be tuned.”
