Gurdjieff and taught to his students as part of the work of self-observation and self-study.
Gurdjieff taught that the movements were not merely calisthenics, exercises in concentration, and displays of bodily coordination and aesthetic sensibility: on the contrary, in the movements was embedded real, concrete knowledge, passed from generation to generation of initiates - each posture and gesture representing some cosmic truth that the informed observer could read like a book. Gurdjieff created about 250 Movements or dances, some of them coming from seeing them preformed in Sufi, Tibetan, Buddhist, or esoteric traditions, in Central Asia, Tibet, Egypt, Middle East; some of them created by Gurdjieff himself on a music composed by Gurdjieff and Thomas de Hartmann. A brief glimpse of the dances appears at the very end of the motion picture about Gurdjieff, Meetings with Remarkable Men, produced and directed in 1978 by Peter Brook.
Who: Latif has been practicing the Movements since 2010 with various Gurdjieff teachers in India, France, Spain, Germany, Canada and Corfu. His teaching style can be described as gentle and very suitable for beginners. In his professional life, he works as an English teacher at various schools and Universities. By teaching the Movements, he wants to share his love for the sacred movements with others. Sebastiaan has been practicing the Movements since 2014 in France, Spain, Germany and The Netherlands. He has a deep fascination for dance as a means for spiritual development and for him the best results are achieved by the Movements. In his professional life, he works as a business analyst for a trading company in Amsterdam.
