Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
'Sophia Wellbeloved's Gurdjieff: The Key Concepts is an essential guide for students of Gurdjieff. It will also be of serious interest to students and scholars of all the Western transformational traditions. This book breaks new ground and further serious analysis of Gurdjieff's contribution to the Western cultural trajectory cannot be far in the future.' - Lynn Quirolo, Stopinder: A Gurdjieff Journal For Our TIme

'This book would be an essential addition to any library maintaining an intrest in esoteric traditions or contemporary alternative spirituality.' - Kevin Tingay, Journal of Theosophical History
