SEMINAR 4:  Gurdjieffian Hackney-Carriages and Sociocosmic Octaves

Gurdjieff's Hackney Carriage for Man and ManHo's Hackney Carriage for Organization

This is a 6-hour course dedicated to the discussion and critical thinking regarding the esoteric ideas of Gurdjieff on the very basic structure in the construction of a holistic human machine (do) and that of an organizational stopinder in a sociocosmic octave (fa, so, la and ti).

The four-bodied structure of both the man and his organization draws an analogous parallelism and the links between each bodies will be discussed in the seminar.

Top managers, middle managers, supervisors and individuals serious in self-improvement or the improvement of their business organizations are encouraged to participate.

The seminar/workshop is developed as part of the serial training programs for Odyssey Training.
