Read full description of the books Life Is Real Only Then, When 'i Am':This is the third and final volume of Gurdjieff's 'All and Everything' series, in which the great man offers words of wisdom and guidance to those following his path. "Life is Real Only Then, When 'I Am'" comprises a prologue, the contents of five lectures given to his closest confidants in the late 1930s, and an unfinished essay 'The Outer and Inner World of man', sadly unfinished at Gurdjieff's death on 29th October 1949. This book was privately published and has only recently become more widely available - it is an invaluable source for anyone interested in the 'oeuvre' of one of the most remarkable men of the twentieth century.
Read information about the authorGeorges Ivanovich Gurdjieff (Armenian: Գեորգի Իվանովիչ Գյուրջիև, Georgian: გიორგი გურჯიევი, Greek: Γεώργιος Γεωργιάδης, Russian: Гео́ргий Ива́нович Гюрджи́ев, Georgiy Ivanovich Gyurdzhiev, or Gurdjiev) was an influential Greek-Armenian mystic, spiritual teacher of the early to mid-20th century, and a self-professed 'teacher of dancing'.
He taught that the vast majority of humanity lives their entire lives in a state of hypnotic "waking sleep," but that it was possible to transcend to a higher state of consciousness and achieve full human potential. Gurdjieff developed a method for doing so, calling his discipline "The Work" (connoting "work on oneself") or "the Method." According to his principles and instructions, Gurdjieff's method for awakening one's consciousness is different from that of the fakir, monk or yogi, so his discipline is also called (originally) the "Fourth Way." At one point he described his teaching as being "esoteric Christianity."
At different times in his life, Gurdjieff formed and closed various schools around the world to teach the work. He claimed that the teachings he brought to the West from his own experiences and early travels expressed the truth found in ancient religions and wisdom teachings relating to self-awareness in people's daily lives and humanity's place in the universe. The title of his third series of writings, Life Is Real Only Then, When 'I Am', expresses the essence of his teachings. His complete series of books is entitled All and Everything.
