Summary

The robust memoirs of an unusual twentieth-century seeker and student of G. I. Gurdjieff.

This is a rambling narration of the life of Martin Benson and in particular his unique relation with the mystical philosopher G. I. Gurdjieff. The time period includes the years at Fountainebleau, where Gurdjieff had established a school of sacred students. Benson’s intimate relation to the master illuminates the living content of his teaching as well as providing cameo sketches of important personalities who were his students.

Carl Lehmann-Haupt, artist, designer, and memoirist himself, has been a student of G. I. Gurdjieff for almost fifty years. His life-long ambition has been to write a history of metaphysics.
