Meetings with Remarkable Men, G. I. Gurdjieffa€™s autobiographical account of his youth and early travels, has become something of a legend since it was first published in 1963. A compulsive a€œreada€ in the tradition of adventure narratives, but suffused with Gurdjieffa€™s unique perspective on life, it is organized around portraits of remarkable men and women who aided Gurdjieffa€™s search for hidden knowledge or accompanied him on his journeys in remote parts of the Near East and Central Asia. This is a book of lives, not doctrines, although readers will long value Gurdjieffa€™s accounts of conversations with sages. Meetings conveys a haunting sense of what it means to live fullya€”with conscience, with purpose, and with heart. Among the remarkable individuals whom the reader will come to know are Gurdjieffa€™s father (a traditional bard), a Russian prince dedicated to the search for Truth, a Christian missionary who entered a World Brotherhood deep in Asia, and a woman who escaped white slavery to become a trusted member of Gurdjieffa€™s group of fellow seekers. Gurdjieffa€™s account of their attitudes in the face of external challenges and in the search to understand the mysteries of life is the real substance of this classic work.a#39;a€œWe repair, remodel, upholster and refinish any piece of furniture whatever, either in our workshop or at your own house. a#39; a€œWe repair ... a€œWe write by hand, print, and decorate visiting cards, greeting and anniversary cards, and invitations.
