Would you like to know how to draw on the joy and strength of your soul while dealing effectively with egotists, people with negative attitudes and a world on edge?

The answers are here in this exciting new book…

Award-winning actor and playwright John Maxwell Taylor builds on the success of his previous book, The Power of I Am, in this eloquent call to awaken from our collective trance and to claim the transformative power and happiness that is our birthright.

  • The Enlightenment Quest and the Art of Happiness shows us how to master ourselves so that we can harness the energy of higher power to surmount the chaos of the modern world.
  • It provides strategies for “sociological aikido” that allow us to deal effectively with rude behavior, energy vampires, narcissists and the waking sleep of mass consciousness.
  • Through a potent array of practical tools, stories and life lessons, Taylor helps us reorder the events in our lives, the way people respond to us, the impact we have on the world and how to attune ourselves the laws of manifestation using principles the author learned as a resident at the Findhorn Community.

Informed by Taylor’s incredibly varied background – from European pop star, to student of Paramhansa Yogananda, Gurdjieff, and Mantak Chia, to resident at the pioneering Findhorn Community, to playing Carl Jung on  stage for many years – this book demonstrates how, by understanding the powers active in creation, we can become instruments through which higher power continually flows to advance our evolution toward consciousness. In doing so, we not only transform ourselves, we become powerful agents for changing the world.

CRAZY WISDOM: The Life and Legend of Gurdjieff
Music Review by Dr. Maryel Mckinley

When I saw John Maxwell Taylor perform his critically acclaimed one-man-play “Forever Jung,” based on the life of Carl Jung, I knew I had run across a genius; yet this did not prepare me for the absolutely brilliant musical Taylor composed and wrote called CRAZY WISDOM.
Based on the life and esoteric teachings of Gurdjieff – and one of his beloved followers Ouspenski – Taylor has amazingly portrayed the essence of Gurdjieff’s mystical teaching in the form of an outstanding Broadway-type musical.

This 2-CD package, with an Enneagram on the cover, is complete with synopsis and lyrics for each piece. Taylor takes the listener back in time to St. Petersburg 1915 when eastern philosopher Ouspenski met the legendary Gurdjieff who had (and still has) many followers that he was teaching to become conscious and awake through what he called “the work.”

This current work of Taylor’s accurately captures “the work” in a clever eye-opening way that will thrill those familiar with the teachings of Gurdjieff as well as an innovative way to introduce “the work” to fresh seekers of this mystical philosophy. I applaud Taylor for accomplishing the seemingly impossible with this CD. Finally you may be asking, “What is the basis of the teachings of Gurdjieff?” Buy the CD and wake up to the revolutionary experience yourself!
