William Patrick Patterson is the founder and editor-in-chief of The Gurdjieff Journal.

The Gurdjieff Journal, established in 1992, is the first and now only journal, international-domestic, devoted exclusively to G. I. Gurdjieff’s teaching of The Fourth Way. Published triannually and free of advertising, the intention of The Gurdjieff Journal is to observe and report upon the contemporary world “mercilessly, without any compromise whatsoever.” Through original research, timely feature articles, essays, interviews and book and film reviews, the principles, perspectives and practices of the teaching are explored and applied to everyday living.
