Exploring the teacher-student relationship
OF ALL RELATIONSHIPS, THAT BETWEEN TEACHER AND STUDENT is the most mysterious, most rewarding. That between Gurdjieff and Uspenskii, two of the seminal spiritual figures of-the twentieth, century, was titanic, archetypal. By closely observing their interaction, we come to understand the pattern of discoveries, resistances and rebellions—the deep inner and outer struggle that marks every teacher-student relationship, whatever the path. How and why a student of Uspenskii's caliber broke with his teacher, his slow descent, but ultimate breakthrough, offers a deep and, profound study that reveals the defining moments and trigger events intrinsic to the iirocess of transformation. The material here, much of it new and drawn from original sources, published and unpublished, along with the author's insights and original reading of documents, provides a new and revolutionary dimension to the understanding of Gurdjieff, Uspenskii and Fourth Way work.
Gurdjieff came to the West because, as he said—Unless the 'wisdom' of the East and the 'energy' of the West meet and are used harmoniously, the world will destroy itself He came to establish an ancient teaching, newly formulated for our time, one specifically calibrated to the stresses and uncertainties of the technological world. Unlike the traditional three ways which focus on the body, emotions, or mind, the Fourth Way uses the ordinary world to work. A rational and scientific approach—shorn of all `religiosity' and presented in an objective language—the Fourth Way uses the shocks, negativity and suffering of ordinary life to come to real Life.
"Struggle of the Magicians will fascinate anyone interested in the Fourth Way. I could hardly put it down. " Charles T. . Tart, Ph. D. , author, Waking Up
