Christopher Fremantle - An Introduction by Lillian Firestone

“Of the many pupils who gathered around G. I. Gurdjieff, Christopher Fremantle was among those who continued to work for a lifetime. Tall, patrician, and soft spoken, he personified the gentleman and was able by his efforts and perhaps also by his nature to embody the ideas he transmitted.”

On Attention

“By conscious attention the impressions are assimilated. Gurdjieff looked on conscious attention as a catalyst. Automatic attention provides man with security; but conscious attention is the key to evolution.”
