"The Yoga of Attention"
Based on the experience of his own encounter with Gurdjieff's main disciples and with elements of the great Greek philosopher's teachings that have remained unpublished to this day, the author of the book Mr. Dimitri Peretzi gives a vivid description of the effort to develop consciousness. His descriptions revolve around the notion of attention, i.e., the ability of the mind to manage consciousness and focus it on specific worldviews. "The Yoga of Attention" deals with the general theoretical background of this spiritual practice, and at the same time with the presentation of the inner discipline necessary to proceed on the path of development. According to Gurdjieff, the management of attention is the main tool available to man on the path of his spiritual quest. The notion of spiritual awakening is directly associated with the awakening of his ability to direct his attention wilfully, free from mechanical processes that draw and bind attention to the random circumstances of life. This is the perspective from which this book views Gurdjieff's Work.
