Meetings with Remarkable Men




An exhilarating, life-affirming travelogue and a provocative, rallying invocation to the search for spiritual truth

The Armenian-Greek spiritual teacher, G.I. Gurdjieff's autobiographical account of his youth and early travels has become something of a legend since it was first published in 1963. A compulsive read in the tradition of adventure narratives, but suffused with Gurdjieff's unique perspective on life, it is organized around portraits of remarkable men and women who aided Gurdjieff's search for hidden knowledge or accompanied him on his journeys in remote parts of the Near East and Central Asia.

A classic work, suffused with a haunting sense of what it means to live fully - with conscience, with purpose and with heart.
