Gurdjieff As Healer

There are quite a few anecdotes from those who spent time with Gurdjieff of him healing particular individuals of various ailments. Gurdjieff had to be careful with such activities, as he was not a qualified doctor in either France or the US.

When in France, he could treat non-French nationals without there being repercussions. Similarly, when in the US he could treat non-US nationals, without fear of violating the law. There are a number of anecdotes of Gurdjieff doing so, which we reproduce here.

Additionally, Gurdjieff was an expert hypnotist. And he was hired for his ability in that line of work, using it to generate income from time to time.

It is also worth noting that Gurdjieff provides considerable health information and advice in The Tales.
