Gurdjieff Sufi Dances & Ideas – The Three Centers

The Gurdjieff dances are a path of transformation through movement.
Gurdjieff’s “4th Way” offers a practical way to fulfil our potential, to connect to our inner Being.
It’s a complete system, with dances, philosophy, cosmology, and various meditations.
In this workshop, we will study the human being’s four centers – Body, Mind, and Heart. We will practice the dances, study texts, and experience the meditations. We will work together as a group to study what it is to be human.
The dances serve as our experimental ‘playground’. Each dance has its own music and choreography, so each dance invites us to experience a different quality, a different side of ourselves. Each dance offers us a different way of Being.
Everything that happens in the workshop will be our meditation – the movements, the music, the readings, the discussions, the work of the group. Everything is “food” for our observation, for our learning.

Anyone can join. No special background is necessary.
