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 (1884-1953), who was closely involved with Gurdjieff's work and was responsible for the authoritative Psychological Commentaries on the Teaching of G. I. Gurdjieff and P. D. Ouspensky (5 vols., 1952-56).
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 Gurdjieff's work and are prepared to study Nicoll's Psychological Commentaries.
