Heart Without Measure:
Work With Madame de Salzmann
Heart Without Measure provides close glimpses of the extraordinary teaching of Madame Jeanne de Salzmann, G.I. Gurdjieff’s closest student, who became the spiritual leader of the Work from 1949 until her passing in 1990.
Professor Ravindra was born in India and worked closely with “Madame” during the last decade of her life. His finely composed recollections bring her voice to us with special clarity and force.
The epilogue in this edition includes a tribute to Madame de Salzmann's son, Michel.

This Fundamental Quest:
The Journey of a Pupil of G. I. Gurdjieff
“Madame Lannes,” as she was known to her students, was a French student of Gurdjieff’s, and a beloved teacher of his ideas. This book preserves her notes and remarks expressed in lectures, meetings and letters. While highly valued by mature students of the teaching, this book is also approachable by beginners.
Henriette Lannes joined a group led by Jeanne de Salzmann in Paris in 1938 and met Gurdjieff in 1940. In 1950, Madame de Salzmann convened a meeting of the four Gurdjieff factions in London—groups working with J.G. Bennett, Jane Heap, Maurice Nicoll, and the late P. D. Ouspensky—and introduced Madame Lannes as her designated representative. Madame Lannes devoted succeeding decades to leading groups in England until poor health forced her to return to France, where she died in 1980.
