WEDNESDAY evening, March 24
through SUNDAY noon, March 28, 2010
The 15th International Humanities Conference – All & Everything 2010 convened on March 24, 2010 in Loutraki, Greece. The conference was attended by forty four delegates travelling from Greece, Russia, Crimea, Norway, Canada, the Netherlands, Israel the United Kingdom and the United States.
From the Conference’s inception, it’s members have worked toward making this “gathering of the Companions of the Book” to become more and more just that – a gathering of people from all over the world who come together for the purpose of “fathoming the gist” of Gurdjieff’s writings, of sharing our insights and experiences, our questions, and our efforts to understand and grow into becoming remarkable men and women.
Six papers were presented. Abstracts of the papers are located on the Abstracts 2010 page. Four Seminars were also conducted in which were discussed various issues and questions relating the the books and ideas of Gurdjieff. Seminars included: Chapter 31 of Beelzebub’s Tales – The Sixth And Last Sojourn Of Beelzebub On The Planet Earth; Chapter 6 of Meetings with Remarkable Men – Abram Yelov; a special Seminar on the appearance of Men N1, N2, N3, N4… and N7 In Beelzebub’s Tales; and a special Seminar on the understanding of Beelzebub’s Tales using ordinary consciousness and subconsciousness.
A musical performance of Gurdjieff/deHartmann music by the RODA musical company was presented.
The Conference Banquet speaker was George Kazos, who spoke on the subject of “Democracy, Idiocy and the Esoteric Schools”.
