Gurdjieff:  A Preparatory Workshop
Moving Towards Presence
What is movement?
How do we put ourselves in movement?
From where do our movements come?
G.I. Gurdjieff said that he used movement for the mind. By developing attention in movement, there is the possibility of “awakening” to something deeper in oneself. This introductory workshop will offer exercises and an opportunity to work with members of the Gurdjieff Foundation of Western North Carolina.
