Author integrates ideas and concepts of two influences.

David M. Brahinsky (2011)  Reich and Gurdjieff: Sexuality and the Evolution of Consciousness, New York: Xlibris.

The main subject of this book is the relationship between sexual health and spiritual evolution. Specifically, the book focuses on Wilhelm Reich’s discoveries regarding sexual health and George I. Gurdjieff’s concept of spiritual evolution. The thesis is that spiritual evolution, in Gurdjieff’s sense, is not possible apart from sexual health as Reich determined it. Throughout the book, Brahinsky presents an in-depth discussion on Gurdjieff’s conception of the evolution of consciousness, sex, Reich’s discovery of the prime source biological life energy, the fundamental laws of world creation and world maintenance, the evolution and involution of consciousness, the food of impressions and the crystallization of the higher-being bodies, and finally, sexuality and evolution. Students of Reich and Gurdjieff will acquire the knowledge they need through this edifying book.
