A group adhering to the teachings of G. I. Gurdjieff and P.
D. Ouspensky. Based in Britain, the organization was founded
by Beryl Pogson, who had been pupil and secretary to the Jungian
psychologist Maurice Nicoll (18841953), who was closely
involved with Gurdjieffs work and was responsible for the authoritative
Psychological Commentaries on the Teaching of G. I.
Gurdjieff and P. D. Ouspensky (5 vols., 195256).
The group formed a center in the village of Upper Dicker,
Sussex, England, at a large house named The Dicker, with
facilities for group activities and arts and crafts. The center is
associated with other study groups elsewhere in Britain. Like
all the Gurdjieff centers, it was intended only for those who take
a serious interest in Gurdjieffs work and are prepared to study
Nicolls Psychological Commentaries. Current address not obtained
