The 2019 Wisdom School at Claymont is a special 5-day intensive immersion and exploration of the convergence between the teachings of Gurdjieff and Teilhard led by Cynthia Bourgeault with daily movements by Deborah Rose Longo, held October 28 – November 2, 2019 at Claymont Society for Continuous Education, 667 Huyett Rd., Charles Town, WV 25414.
Those of you who have been working with Cynthia know how much the Fourth Way Gurdjieff wisdom tradition and the Teilhardian wisdom stream have influenced her thinking. She is writing a new book on the points of commonality and tension between these two wisdom streams. She will be exploring some of her work during this time: Teilhard and Gurdjieff in conversation.
