THE ALL & EVERYTHING HUMANITIES CONFERENCE: WHAT IT IS AND IS NOT
—————————————————————————————–

The All & Everything Conference was originally conceived in 1996
as a meeting of the ‘Companions of the Book’. The conference has
developed into a world forum for the presentation and discussion
of recent writings, themes and music associated with the Work.

The Conference provides an open, congenial and serious atmosphere
for the sharing of research and investigation of G. I. Gurdjieff’s legacy.
The Conference seeks to keep the study of the teachings of Gurdjieff
relevant to global, scientific, spiritual and sociological developments.

The gathering is open to all serious students of All & Everything and is not under the auspices or sponsorship of any Gurdjieff Group or umbrella organization. The Conference is not intended to be a ‘Group Work Event’ and thus does not include Work on Movements or Exercises that are related to personal or group Work.

The Conference includes the presentation of academic papers, individual view papers, seminars on chapters and themes in All & Everything, and cultural events.
