A spiritual and thought journey by Dr. Ilan Amit, mathematician and writer. At the same time, he engaged in the “inner work” of the Gurdjieff method as an apprentice and later as a teacher, and later turned to an independent path. Among his students: poet Agi Mishol and Dr. Avner Glicklich. He studied Tai-Chi after blinding himself at the age of 47 and persisting for more than 20 years until his death. The trauma of blindness afforded Ilan unique perspectives in his search; Ilan sought meaning. For him, the key to meaningful human existence was “presence.” Later he shed frames and opinions and developed a unique and courageous way. He disliked esotericism and sought a way to combine his spiritual world with that of young Israel.
