Three exercises from “The Book of Little Things” plus an extra exercise from the Gurdjieff teaching in Audio Format


Presentazione Fb7A year has passed since I wrote “The Book of Little Things”, and I can say that, since it had been released, it met with success. However, no one work is perfect, and many readers had confided in me of their difficulties in memorizing the sequence of some of the exercises. It’s a normal thing, seen that there are many people who try to work on themselves without the assistance of a guide. Indeed, not everyone has the possibility to make contact with a competent group. On the other hand, exercises related to such a line of practicing, mainly, Gurdjieff-like systems, are practically unavailable or, even if some can be found through Youtube, they are already incomplete, or if not, let’s be sincere – totally misleading. Thus, I decided to make an audio recording of three main exercises presented in the book. Of course, the audio version of the exercises is more accurate than a sketch about how to perform them. In addition to those exercises, I also made an audio of a Gurdjieff exercise which has never been released in such a format (audio), even if, as I know, it’s still taught in some older groups.

About The Audios

This series of practices is designed as a companion set of exercises to complement “The Book of Little Things”. However, they are not a mere repetition of what is written in the book, as the practices are deepened and extended. 

The “Basic Self-Remembering Practice”

This exercise belongs to Gurdjieff’s basic practices and it is intended to help the practitioner to divide his attention – mainly, to experience what happens here and now, inside and outside of himself, simultaneously.  In an ordinary state of awareness, a person is in a constant trance-like state. Using Gurdjieff’s terminology, he is absent, perpetually identified, “asleep”. Continue reading…..

About mr Sarmoung

Andrea Dandolo je pisac i istražitelj razvoja svijesti i duhovnosti uključen u razotkrivanje drevnih učenja s ciljem olakšavanja unutarnjeg razvoja ljudskih bića. Jedan od načina kojima se time bavi je i kroz blog koji je preveden na engleski, španjolski i od nedavno hrvatski. Od rane mladosti je u svijetu duhovnosti i rada na sebi sudjelujući u radu grupa koje potječu direktno od Gurdjieffa, tj koje su bile vođene od strane samog Gurdjieffa U skladu sa drevnim znanjima, naglašava razvoj svjesnosti kao primarno sredstvo za psihološku transformaciju i duhovnu osvještenost individualaca. Karakteristike sistema koji predlaže su jednostavan jezik i moderni prijevod drevnih učenja kao i njihove praktične primjene u svakodnevnome životu. Njegov blog čitaju ljudi iz svih krajeva svijeta. Samorazvoj je ne religiozni i ne dogmatski put; sastoji se primarno od naprednog dostizanja viših stanja svijesti, p prisustva i konačno od ostvarivanja svoje prave intimne prirode, koja je poznata u mnogim tradicijama pod imenima poput esencija, duša, biće. Kroz takav razvoj individualna osoba ulazi u nove dimenzije svijesti koje mu omogućuju da vidi stvarnost sakrivenu iza iluzija. To mu omogućuje kreiranje osobnosti neovisne i otporne na vanjske situacije i vanjska uvjetovanja. Posljedice takvog razvoja su oštra inteligencija, izvanredni kreativni kapaciteti, ravnoteža i smirenost u svakoj situaciji i stabilno stanje višeg stanja svijesti koje je poznato u drevnim tradicijama pod nazivom “buđenje”.
