“The event which compels me into this book was my meeting with the celebrated mystic, teacher and philosopher, George Ivanovitch Gurdjieff, whom I encountered as if by chance and came to love as if by design.”
Kathryn Hulme's life was radically changed and enriched by the influence of Gurdjieff. Undiscovered Country is a tribute to him and his teachings, a vivid personal memoir of her experience as his student, and of the burning spiritual intensity that dominated her life as a result of his influence.
«Undiscovered Country is in the tradition of Kathryn Hulme's best work; painstaking, poetic, and always sincere. In recording her soul's search for 'something more,' she contributes an arresting document for those who believe this to be their function on earth.”
“This is a 'must' for all interested in Gurdjieff and his school, and strongly recommended for all who are concerned in the Pilgrimage of the Soul. It gives the best intimate picture I know of what it meant to be a 'follower of Gurdjieff's ideas.' «

“A picture of the relation between a teacher and his pupil . . . the way he opens her to a wider world through a relation which touches the whole of one's being.”
