Gurdjieff International Review
Author of The Nuns Story, The Wild Place, and Undiscovered Country (a description of her years with Gurdjieff). A woman of boundless energy, she was also an astute and perceptive observer of life around her.
In this essay we accompany the author who is led on an inner-world journey by Mr. Gurdjieff. “Man has three worlds . . . you must make intentional contact between outer-world struggle and inner-world struggle; only then can you make data for the Third World of Man, sometimes called World of the Soul.”
“Gurdjieff said, ‘Must have attention. What is attention? Attention is working together of association of thought with association of feeling. Memory working together with sensing makes attention.’”
Kathryn Hulme, author of The Nun’s Story, met Gurdjieff in Paris in the 1930s. There, she participated in the meetings of “The Women of the Rope,” an experience she described in her book, Undiscovered Country. After Gurdjieff’s death, Kathryn converted to Catholicism.
