Through our group leader who lives in France, we are in direct and regular contact with the Paris Institute founded by Gurdjieff. This original source of his teaching is important to us. Occasionally we are given the opportunity to visit the center in Paris.


Paris is the citadel of the inner work, the guardian of accumulated knowledge.

After Gurdjieff’s death in 1949, the teaching was led by Madame de Salzmann and went on uninterrupted for decades thanks to her long life. They created a system of knowledge, compiled the movement exercises, and strengthened the functioning of the organization. Presently the Institute, with headquarters in New York, London, South America and California,  forms the base that was left for us by Gurdjieff’s teaching. Under this guidance work is progressing in several other countries as well.

We have a close relationship with the groups working in Transylvania, Romania, Germany and in Brazil. Yearly, we also work together in person with members of several foreign groups.
