Why Are We Here?

For some of us the events of the last several years have created real questions about the meaning and purpose of our existence, the functioning of our society and the possibility for living a more meaningful life. And for some of us the answers provided by traditional ways and forms seem lacking. In the early 20th century, during a similar period of war and uncertainty, a man named Gurdjieff brought a teaching of self-understanding based, not on faith, but on actual experience. HIs teaching is for the purpose of discovering who one is in all one’s aspects, the mind, the heart and the body, for all three are needed in order to for one to have a deeper understanding of what it means to be a complete human being. His teaching has grown to reach thousands of thoughtful individuals around the world, all motivated by the same question, who am I and what am I here for?
