Notes on the Teachings of Gurdjieff: Kathryn Hulme


Kathryn Hulme (1900 – 1981) was an American novelist. She is perhaps best know as the writer of The Nun’s Story – which was made into a very successful and well known film starring Audrey Hepburn.




However, she was also a student of Gurdjieff: spent a long time working with him in Paris and was a member of the all-female sub-group The Rope.



I came across some of her Notes on Gurdjieff’s teachings. Perhaps nothing startlingly new here, but a clear and honest account of some of his main tenets.





I offer them here for wider dissimilation and discussion.
