A Confluence of Grace and Effort
A Fourth Way and Mevlevi Immersion
Sunday, September 8, 2019 through Saturday the 14th (afternoon to afternoon)
@ The Claymont Society, Charles Town, WV 25414
In the late 1970’s a beautiful cooperation developed between Suleyman Dede of the Mevlevis and Pierre Elliot of the Gurdjieff/Bennett school at Claymont. Pierre became a student of Dede’s and Dede sent his son Jelaleddin Efendi to study with Pierre as well as to teach at the school. A number of us who benefited from the combination hope to share essential practices from both but how each has helped us understand the other.
Rumi said that if we all take our candles into the dark room with the elephant at the same time, then we can see the whole elephant instead of just a part. We hope to provide at least two candles. Come and bring yours!
