Gurdjieff Sufi Dances

The Gurdjieff dances are a path of transformation through movement.

The workshop offers a practical way for Inner Work and self observation. As you practice the Gurdjieff dances, you experience ourselves as we really are. Directly, immediately, without judgement, simply seeing: this is me, this is who I am, right now. And by seeing yourself, with no illusions, you gradually step towards what you wish to be.

Each dance is a unique meditation, each dance has its own music and choreography. Some dances are fast and full of fire, others are soft and flowing, others are prayerful and quiet. Each dance invites you to experience a different quality, a different side in yourself. You could say that each dance is a different way of Being.
During the workshop we will practice the movements, and learn about the foundation of Gurdjieff’s 4th way. We will work by ourselves as well as with the group.
Anyone can join. No special background is necessary.
