“You don’t have to apologize for your mechanicality.” –Mr. Nyland
For those with interest in the ideas of Gurdjieff, particularly as we learn to apply them in Willem Nyland’s groups, introductory and advanced dialogues are offered on Zoom and in person. Your personal reading of Gurdjieff’s writings is the only prerequisite.
I joined Mr. Nyland’s Chardavogne group in 1979. His rigorous transmission of Gurdjieff’s ideas continues to be my home base when it comes to putting them into practice.
From 1982 to 1987, I lived and worked with Mrs. March and her group at the Rochester Folk Art Guild; and through that apprenticeship worked with members of various Gurdjieff Foundations around the world. Becoming conversant with diverse ‘languages’ of the teachings expressed through different lineages… I’ve come to recognize practical differences, and appreciate similarities.
“Ultimately I find agreement with Gurdjieff’s maxim: “All roads lead to Philadelphia.”
Introductory meetings are held monthly, approximately.
Please read first and last Chapters of All and Everything, Beelzebub’s Tales to His Grandson by G.I. Gurdjieff before attending meetings. Meetings are 1 ½ hours. Please call with questions and/or to schedule an appointment before attending meetings.
The Land House Group in Northern California will be holding introductory meetings in the Berkeley-Oakland area, starting February 11, 2021. These are held virtually, and open to those interested in exploring the ideas of Gurdjieff and their application in daily life.

The Land House group was founded in 1965 by Willem Nyland, a pupil of Gurdjieff from 1924 to 1949. Acting on instructions from Gurdjieff, he began teaching and established numerous groups in America.
