An inspirational Portraits in Faith video featuring Gurdjieff will be presented on Sunday, July 28th at 10:15 a.m. at the Berlin Township Community Center in Beach Lake, PA. George Ivanovich Gurdjieff was a mystic, philosopher, and spiritual teacher of Armenian and Greek descent, born in Alexandrapol, Armenia. Gurdjieff taught that most humans do not possess a unified consciousness and thus live their lives in a state of hypnotic "waking sleep", but that it is possible to awaken to a higher state of consciousness and achieve full human potential. Gurdjieff described a method attempting to do so, calling the discipline "The Work" connoting "work on oneself") or "the Method". According to his principles and instructions, Gurdjieff's method for awakening one's consciousness unites the methods of the fakir, monk and yogi and thus he referred to it as the "Fourth Way".
