Many profound and life changing moments of my life have occurred at meditation retreats centered around The Fourth Way. These methods spun out of the idea that we can work “in the world” as opposed to retreating from the world.
It is called the Fourth Way because it is not just the way of the Fakir, transformation through the body, nor the Monk who uses prayer and contemplation of the Heart, nor the Yogi who practices the Stilling of the Mind.
The Fourth Way combines all three methods through various means to be done in everyday life.
“It has no specific forms or institutions and comes and goes controlled by some particular laws of its own.” G. I. Gurdjieff
