The Fourth Way
A Hazardous Path
A New Book By Anthony Blake
This short book is a personal story of experiences of the Fourth Way, first of all under the guidance of John Bennett, a leading exponent of Gurdjieff’s ideas and methods, and then, after his death, in various explorations. It sketches many of the people involved and emphasises the hazardous, uncertain nature of the way. With many illustrations, it reflects on methods and practices but also depicts the significance of encounters between people. In a highly condensed form it surveys the fourth way as an evolving path of search embracing the necessary diversity needed for understanding in art, science and spirituality.
