The Bradford Gurdjieff Society was originally founded by John G. Bennett in Bradford, UK in 1949 and was led from that time, for over 45 years, by Rina Hands.
The teaching is of ancient origin and was brought to the west in a form suitable for contemporary culture by George Ivanovitch Gurdjieff.
Group members continue this tradition and meet regularly to follow Gurdjieff's teaching known as "the Work" in Group premises in Yorkshire
The programme includes working together on activities (cooking, gardening and various crafts), movements and study.
Members are from all over the North of England (Yorkshire, Lancashire, Cheshire, Durham, Northumberland, Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire) from Newcastle south to Nottingham, and from Manchester, Bradford and Leeds east to York.
