Gurdjieff - Sacred dances



Type of spiritual experience


Gurdjieff used three sorts of sacred dance: 

  • One was whirling and swirling like the Sufi dance
  • Another used a form of quaking and shaking 
  • And a third used extremely repetitive movements in which you chanted. 

This observation is from the film Meetings With Remarkable Men
