Rawlinson (1997: 185) has aptly characterised Bennett as 'a man of considerable intellect, fascinated by systems and formulre, but given to sudden lurches'. Nevertheless, at the same time as he ransacked the esoteric systems of the day, Bennett acted as guru to other seekers. For example, he led his own study groups in and around London in the 1930s, based on his own interpretations of Gurdjieffian and Ouspenskian ideas. These endea­ vours culminated in the establishment of households for work and study: at Coombe Springs in South London in 1946, and in the Cotswolds in the early 1970s.
