George Ivanivics Gurdieff was an influential teacher of the early to mid-20th century who taught that the vast majority of humanity lives their entire lives in a state of hypnotic "waking sleep," but that it was possible to transcend to a higher state of consciousness and achieve full human potential.


My older son’s most respected philosopher and I am sure he read and learned everything possible about Gurdijeff.


This is the piece sitting in this category by years. I started it rapidly, it looked like it will be completed in no time. Than cancer stroke and everything went to the back burner for a very long period.


It is now off the shelf. At first it needs “damage control” of the year of neglect, than I can carve it. Hope to finish it by Christmas.
