This profound discussion is rich with meaning–so rich, that you can feel it in all sorts of ways as you listen. We are much more than our usual, everyday selves, and it’s the experience of this reviewer that there are energies in this deep and searching discussion that feed the parts of us that want to see beyond the cares of ordinary experience, and go higher.
Although they don’t speak about the Gurdjieff Work in detail, both Fran Shaw and Whitley are engaged in it, and the power of their inner work is communicated here with often startling clarity.
They discuss a book that Fran has written, “I Am Stories” that concerns experiences at a very special retreat in Switzerland. The master of the retreat, called in the book, “LeClair,” is no longer alive, but what Fran has done in memorializing the power of his work is a real blessing. Each of the stories approaches the journey toward real awakening in a different way, and Whitley explores them with Fran with his usual detailed attention to the contents of the book and what the author is trying to say. Expect moving, expect funny, expect joyous, and above all, expect enlightening.
This is truly a work of high attention and great love, and I am so grateful that they did it.
