George Ivanovitch Gurdjieff (January 13, 1866 – October 29, 1949), was a Greek-Armenian mystic, a teacher of sacred dances, and a spiritual teacher. At different times in his life he formed and liquidated various schools around the world to utilize his teachings. He claimed that the teachings he brought to the West from his own experiences and early travels expressed the truth found in other ancient religions and wisdom teachings relating to self-awareness in one’s daily life and humanity’s place in the universe. He is most notable for introducing what some refer to as “The Work,” meaning work on oneself according to Gurdjieff’s principles and instructions, or as he first referred to it, the “Fourth Way”.
