Claymont Society for Continuous Education
Working with the Gurdjieff Movements and the Enneagram
March 6-8, 2020
The Enneagram symbol stands at the heart of the Gurdjieff Teaching and yet in his writings Gurdjieff said very little about it. Much of what others have written on the subject since his death, while often engaging, suffers from seeing this remarkable symbol as a way of knowing rather than an activation of typically disengaged aspects of our being. We have been left to ourselves to discover its potency and its application through contemplation of the symbol itself and the internalization of its intelligence through the other activities he left us, such as the Movements and the structure of various kinds of group work. From the classroom to the kitchen to the Movements Hall we will use study, inner exercises, and active participation to help us understand how we can engage this symbol to help us live intelligently in more than one world.
Activities for the weekend will include guided sittings and explorations, movements, practical work, and inner sharing. You are cordially invited to join us in our work and exploration.
The weekend will begin with dinner at 6:30 pm on Friday March 6 and end after lunch on Sunday March 8. All activities will be at the Great Barn.
Suggested donation for the weekend is $120 if you are staying overnight at Claymont and $75 if you are not staying overnight. However, do not let the cost prevent you from coming, financial assistance is available.
