ALL and Everything Conference Mission
The ALL and Everything International Humanities Conference is an international forum for the presentation and discussion of studies associated with the exploration of G. I. Gurdjieff’s work and legacy and in particular his writings.
The conference aims to provide an impartial, serious, and congenial atmosphere for those who wish to explore these teachings with the hope that, by sharing questions and insights, a wider horizon of understanding and practical incorporation may appear.
The conference is open to all students of Gurdjieff’s work and legacy. While providing a framework for structured meetings, discussions and readings, the conference also aims to facilitate interactions to encourage relationships and exchanges among individuals and Work groups.
The A&E International Humanities Conference was proposed by Mrs. A.L. Staveley for the purpose to “try and fathom the gist” of Mr. Gurdjieff’’s writings as “companions of the book.” It was agreed upon by the Planning Committee that the standard text for the Conference would be and continues to be the 1950 edition of Beelzebub’s Tales to His Grandson for all submissions.

Contrary to the established custom, I shall not only permit this first book of mine as well as the books of the first series, to be reprinted in any country, but, if necessary, I am willing to subsidize it, on the condition of course that absolute accuracy is preserved.
