G. Gurdjieff’s Institute for the Harmonious Development of Man. The Institute for the Harmonious Development of Man by the G. I. Gurdjieff system is practically the continuation of the Society that went under the name of the “Seekers after Truth.” This Society was founded in 1895 by a group of various specialists, including doctors, archaeologists, priests, painters, etc., whose aim was to study supernatural phenomena. During the existence of the Society, its members undertook many difficult journeys, mostly in Persia, Afghanistan, Turkestan, Tibet, India etc. They also undertook a good deal of work of various descriptions in connection with their object, which involved much labor and organisation. Throughout the period many of the Society’s members lost their lives, and only a small number returned to Russia in 1913, under the leadership of Mr. Gurdjieff. This short book describes the background for the later society established at Fountainebleu in France and outlines the core teachings.
