The Fourth Way

The Fourth Way is a system of practical philosophy, psychology, and body-centered practices derived from various sources of ancient knowledge in Central Asia, and adapted to contemporary Western life by Gurdjieff, Ouspensky and others.

Most other ways of self-development are predominantly oriented in one of three ways: either intellectually, emotionally or physically.

The Fourth Way creates a powerful synergy by combining all three orientations into a balanced, comprehensive approach, and is thus the "Fourth Way."
