About this title


Heyneman's panoramic vision of a cosmic spiritual ecology is achieved through an unusual balance between practical observation, vigorous knowledge of literature and science and inspired personal insight. She leads her reader past explanation, through knowledge, to exceptional opportunities for understanding of our role in the cosmos. All of this hinges on her ability to relate her practice and understanding of Gurdjieff's teaching to international legacies of literature and science. (J. Walter Driscoll, Gurdjieff: A Reading Guide)

From the Publisher:

Essayist Martha Heyneman attempts nothing less than wrestling into coherent definition what she sees as a newly emergent cosmology--an all-encompassing understanding, a "framework of order for the psyche"--which integrates the life of the intellect with the life of the senses and the spiritual dimension with the natural realm.
