Bennett Books Blog is dedicated to nurturing, nourishing, and further developing a living legacy of work-on-oneself introduced into Western culture by GI Gurdjieff at the opening of the twentieth century.

Throughout the first half of the last century Gurdjieff intently lived this mystery with all who were drawn to him, able to bear his presence, receive his guidance, and willing to commit themselves to work in his laboratories.
John Godolphin Bennett and Elizabeth Mayall (Bennett) were two of many who answered the call. And, they were my teachers. And this blog, in their name and dedicated to their memory, invites all who knew them to bring to it what they experienced through and with them.
