    An initiatory book.. From a real teacher of the 'Work'

    The author, Colin R. Brown, explores a number of themes that have appealed to him in his own search in the Gurdjieff tradition. A direct student of George Cornelius , ( a student of Gurdjieff in the 1940s)- as well as John Lester and A. L. Staveley he reflects a fresh and brave approach to the 'work' ideas that have seemed so repetitious and 'cultish' recently. He describes and discusses 'The six-point exercise' - a hitherto unpublished exercise and even discloses some radical tips for telepathic communication. I found it a friendly, wise read - and as its title suggests, very practical, compared with some of the other material being published today in this method which can tend to be turgid, obscure and elitist. Reading this little work changed my thinking and my world dramatically. Michael
