Memories of Gurdjieff - by A.L. Staveley

In MEMORIES OF GURDJIEFF A. L. Staveley gives us a vivid portrayal of the Master and at the same time conveys to the reader a genuine sense of the way Gurdjieff taught. In these vignettes the voice of the Master is heard again and his teaching transmitted. A. L. Staveley was a pupil of Jane Heap in London from 1939-1959. Jane Heap, who had herself been a pupil of A. R. Orage in New York, was later sent by Gurdjieff to teach his ideas in London. Her groups were not large but she worked intensively with them and always in preparation for the day when she could take them to the Master himself. These meetings, which took place between the end of the Second World War and the death of Gurdjieff in 1949, are the episodes and substance of this book. Hardbound and Handbound

Jane Heap/Notes - by Jane Heap OUT OF PRINT Indefinitely

After Jane Heap's death, Michael Briggs sent to A.L. Staveley, who had also been a member of Jane's group in London, several boxes of Jane Heap's notes. From these Mrs. Staveley selected the notes she felt would be most useful for her pupils, and Jane Heap/Notes was published in 1984. The book was handset and printed on an offset press. Only 100 copies were printed at that time, because it was thought that these notes would only be of interest to people in Jane Heap's lineage. This assumption has proven to be quite unwarranted.

The Notes of Jane Heap - by Jane Heap

After Jane Heap's death, Michael Briggs sent to A.L. Staveley, who had also been a member of Janei's group in London, several boxes of Jane Heap's notes. From these Mrs. Staveley selected the notes she felt would be most useful for her pupils, and Jane Heap/Notes was published in 1984. The book was handset and printed on an offset press. Only 100 copies were printed at that time, because it was thought that these notes would only be of interest to people in Jane Heap's lineage. This assumption has proven to be quite unwarranted. A few years later, Mrs. Staveley discovered that the London group had also printed a limited edition titled The Notes of Jane Heap, and soon thereafter it was agreed that this book would also be published by Two Rivers Press. Both of these volumes have been appreciated by members of other Gurdjieff groups for the depth and intensity of Jane's formulations, and her absolutely unique quality of insight. Hardbound

A.R. Orage's Commentaries On All and Everything - Edited by C.S. Nott - Product Image

A.R. Orage's Commentaries On All and Everything - Edited by C.S. Nott

Very few have, or could have, the temerity to attempt making a commentary on ALL AND EVERYTHING: Beelzebub's Tales to His Grandson by George Ivanovitch Gurdjieff. Of the handful who have done so or might do so in the future, Orage was surely the best qualified. This commentary was first printed in C.S. Knott's Teachings of Gurdjieff, published in 1961 by Routledge and Kegan Paul. Orage had a wide reputation in his day as an exceptionally fine editor and was appointed by Gurdjieff to work over the first rough drafts of his Book. There are early typescripts of ALL AND EVERYTHING with many deletions and inserts in Orage's tiny and beautiful writing, and there is no doubt that his devoted work contributed a great deal to the final version which we can hold in our hands today. There is no doubt, however, that was not only Orage's skill as an editor but also his deep respect for and intuition regarding the content of Gurdjieff's writings that helped to bring out its unique quality as a scripture. ~ From the introduction by A.L. Staveley Hardbound and Handbound

The Diary of Madame Egout-Pour Sweet - by Rina Hands - Product Image

The Diary of Madame Egout-Pour Sweet - by Rina Hands

The word 'egout' is the French word for sewer or drain and refers to the honorary title conferred upon Rina Hands by Mr. Gurdjieff during her stay with him in Paris. This was during the last few months of his life from August, 1948 to October, 1949. It was one of several such titles which Mr. Gurdjieff used during those extraordinary meals. With these titles and the help of a liberal supply of alcohol, he was able to get beyond the facade of those present, expose what was behind the mask, or illustrate some particular aspect of his ideas. Rina wrote this diary primarily for herself, for she was certain even then of the importance of those days. It is only now, over fifty years later, that we have the privilege of looking in on a short chapter of one person's life. ~ From the forward by Norman Richards Hardbound and Handbound

THEMES I - by A.L. Staveley and others - Product Image

THEMES I - by A.L. Staveley and others

These themes, presented on work days at Two Rivers Farm, are meant to be worked on, not just read and discussed. Designed for those who are more interested in learning how to 'do' the Gurdjieff work than in talking about ideas, philosophy or theory, these themes are not meant to answer questions but to bring some of the material in us which we take for granted, into question. To stir things up in our sluggish minds, to come out of the strait jacket of associative thinking. These are elementary exercises in self-study, a springboard for a practical approach to the ideas. It is possible group leaders, or groups without a leader, studying Mr. Gurdjieff's method might find one or another of these themes useful in their own peculiar and special circumstances and that would be good. But mainly the hope is that these themes should serve as an example of one approach to a practical way of working. ~ A.L. Staveley from the preface of Themes I ~ Hardbound and Handbound

Where Is Bernardino? - by A.L. Staveley

Where is Bernardino? is the story of children in a pre-school. It is a book of great drama, the drama of the total engagement in the here and now that characterizes the life of the child. All of it preserved by a teacher who guides without interfering, observes without intruding, and values because she sees with such clarity the ingredients that go into the making of each little life, and how those ingredients must be understood and cherished and channeled if each of the children is to grow in a way that is right for him or her.
