In part two of our conversation with Richard Hodges of the Gurdjieff Foundation, we talk about Gurdjieff’s teachings on the development of the soul and the many “I’s” that a person identifies with. We delve into some of the origins of Gurdjieff’s thought, and we explore the Gurdjieffian view of the body, the essence, and the personality.
