Gurdjieff myself commented indirectly on this claim in his book Beelzebub’s Tales when he said that “During a war each person that is several what aware is measured a spy because of his sincerity and alertness.”

In the midst of activist confusion in Russia he absent Petrograd in 1917 to arrival to his family home in Alexandropol.

The residence is near the tekke of the Mevlevi arrange of Sufis, where Gaurdjieff, Ouspensky, and Thomas de Hartmann experienced the sema ceremony of the Whirling Dervishes. In Istanbul Gurdjieff also met John G. Bennett.
