Georgy Ivanovich Gurdjieff
Georgy Ivanovich Gurdjieff (1877, Armenia - 1949) - the mystic. He worked in Fontainebleau, near Paris, in the United States. He was familiar with the esoteric knowledge of the Sufi Order Nakshbendi. He developed the doctrine of the four human bodies, each of which stems from the previous as a result of conscious work. This is the body: physical, astral, mental, causal (Sufi allegories in the body expressed in the images of the wagon, horse, driver`s, master`s). In the human body there are osobyetsentry, each of which correspond to a particular function (thinking, emotions, movements, instincts). Based on these representations, he proposed a system of individual development. The first thing that needs to be done to the individual, - wake up, what prevents his identification (mask). But even if he realized what was asleep, he can not do anything alone, we need a collective effort.
