Commune dweller blames her father, and the New York Times - Chester Telegraph

But my dream had always been to find a pottery commune. Nor had I heard of George Ivanovich Gurdjieff (1866-1949), upon whose philosophy the guild was based. According to this Russian-born mystic, humans are born and live out their lives asleep."
