Based on the teachings of G.I. Gurdjieff, P.D. Ouspensky, Maurice Nicoll, and Emanuel Swedenborg, Peter Rhodes presents a practical guide to spiritual progress. Stressing personal responsibility for overcoming negative traits, each chapter explains how we can realize our true spiritual potential by cultivating awareness of our baser reactions and by applying the tools of Gurdjieff’s spiritual method, “The Work,” to our everyday existence.
Rhodes joins “The Work” with the spiritual philosophy of Emanuel Swedenborg to enhance our understanding of how the world of spirit intersects our lives on the earthly level. At the conclusion of each chapter, tools for measuring the reader’s progress are provided in the form of weekly tasks and meditations. This book can be used in group workshops or by the individual.
Rhodes has done us all a real service by putting together this workbook on spiritual progress as something that must grow out of daily practice and concrete intention.
