Summary

"The event which compels me into this book was my meeting with the celebrated mystic, teacher, and philosopher, George Ivanovitch Gurdjieff, whom I encountered as if by chance and came to love as if by design."  

Kathryn Hulme's life was radically changed and enriched by the influence of Gurdjieff. Undiscovered Country is a tribute to him and his teachings, a vivid personal memoir of her experience as his student, and of the burning spiritual intensity that dominated her life as a result of his influence.  

"This is a 'must' for all interested in Gurdjieff and his school, and strongly recommended for all who are concerned in the Pilgrimage of the Soul. It gives the best intimate picture I know of what it meant to be a 'follower of Gurdjieff's ideas'." (J. G. Bennett)

"A picture of the relation between a teacher and his pupil...the way he opens her to a wider world through a relation which touches the whole of one’s being." (Jeanne de Salzmann)

Undiscovered Gurdjieff

Perhaps one of the most touching narratives along with Firtz Peters' on Gurdjieff and his work in practical and human terms. Hulme achieves what many of Gurdjieff pupils haven't: to show the human behind the Master. Not only a beautiful tale but a profound and strong reflection on Gurdjieff's teaching. Recommended even for non followers of the Work. Amazing book.

Beautiful insight

Beautifully narrated, a new perspective of the master thought the live of one of his pupils in an emotional way and a view to the times of the war form inside.
