The Way to be Free.
New York, NY: Samuel Weiser Inc., 1980. First edition. Softcover. Octavo. 202pp. "Compiled from conversations that took place between Bennett and his students, and includes several sections from previously unpublished notes that were to be used in a definitive work on a complete system of Gurdjieff study. It includes an essay on the "Octave of Salvation," written in the 1940s, which shows Bennett's remarkable familiarity with the spiritual traditions of Buddhism, Hinduism and Christianity and which is a significant treatise in its own right. Bennett was a master of structural thinking but always remained closely in touch with the concrete detail of experience." Covers lightly rubbed, spine a bit darkened with some chafing at ends, otherwise a tight, unmarked VG+ copy. Item #57304
