Dushka Howarth's Estate - Archives - and Last Will and Testament

In keeping with Dushka's openness during her lifetime we make available the details of her last will and testament, the legal certifications associated with her estate, and the present actions (bottom) of GHS pursuant to Dushka's stated wishes.

Following is Dushka's own statement of her final wishes regarding access to her archive materials, including materials that Dushka received from her father, George I. Gurdjieff, and/or inherited from her mother, Jessmin Howarth. Jessmin Howarth was a renowned authority regarding the Gurdjieff Movements during her long life. Until Dushka's death on March 28, 2010, she served the international Movements Community by personally giving access to their combined Movements resources.
