We don't find out in A Woman's Work if Ethel participated in this sacrilege, but since she was from England, she probably didn't care all that much. Finally Ethel left Europe and made her way to India, where she met with Krishnamurti, Anandamayi Ma et al. In one of his talks, Krishnaji spoke of breaking up "consciousness into the past, present and future" to create "choiceless awareness. Ethel responded to this by "going to Paris for a winter of painting in a studio.

She met and worked with J. Krishnamurti, Anandamayi Ma, Sri Aurobindo and The Mother, among others. The great sage Ramana Maharshi was the one she chose as her lifelong guru. She first met him while living in a rural village near Benares where for seven years she managed a farm and became a trusted member of the community through her mediation skills, leadership ability and tremendous energy. She left the village for Ramana Maharshi’s ashram, and was with him until his death in 1950. A spiritual biography of Ethel Merston was released in 2009, A Woman’s Work with Gurdjieff, Ramana Maharshi, Krishnamurti, Anandamayi Ma & Pak Subuh, by Mary Ellen Korman with a Foreword by William Patrick Patterson.

The spiritual life story of Ethel Merston based on her diaries and recollections is an important historical work, as well as a keen insight into many of the seminal teachers of her times. Merston was one of Gurdjieff's first English pupils and lived at the Prieure from 1922 until 1927. Her seriousness and organizational abilities led Gurdjieff to put her in charge in his absences. Fritz Peters gives a wonderful account of what she had to put up with (he gives her the name Miss Madison) in his Boyhood with Gurdjieff. In India, she lived at Ramana Maharshi's ashram for many years. She gives a first-person account of his death and also the meeting between The Mother, Sri Aurobindo and Anandamayi Ma (with whom she often traveled). She also attended many of Krishnamurti's talks and seminars in the 1930s, was a friend of Sunyata, Alain Danielou, Krishna Prem and Swami Omananda. In the 1950s she was initiated into Subud by Pak Subuh at J. G. Bennett's Coombe Springs study house. At Mendham, she met again her friends from her Gurdjieff days - Mme de Salzmann, Mme Ouspensky, Olga de Hartmann and Peggy Flinsch - and was introduced to Lord John Pentland.

Ethel was one of the few people from the late 19th-early 20th century who met and studied with most of the notorious "Gurus" of the time. She provides valuable insights into their true character and evaluates their knowledge/experience of/with enlightenment. She learned, what I too discovered, sharing these truths with the You.
If You are One on the path seeking enlightenment or if you want to learn more about a favorite teacher of that time, this is THE book to read!
I am a man. Don't let the title scare you away. This isn't about housework or employment.
I have given away my copy already but at some point it will join my library for reference and possibly to share again.
It is an interesting book but I was expecting an autobiography, and the author has a rather dry style and superimposes her psychological viewpoint onto Ethel's life and motivations, instead of just sharing her spirituality and search for truth without judgement.
Ethel Merston was a woman far ahead of her time. Born to a well-off British family in late Victorian England, she became a world traveler and a spiritual seeker who never stopped pushing herself to explore both her external and internal environments. While she was dauntless in the face of challenges to a single woman traveling to exotic and sometimes dangerous places, her internal journey seemed to be more hesitant and filled with doubt. Yet she was fortunate to meet a remarkable list of the spiritual leaders of her day. She lived with G.I. Gurdjieff at the Prieure outside of Paris for five years, and her description of daily life at the Institute for the Harmonious Development of Man adds rich detail to the stories already known about that period of Gurdjieff's teaching from his other students. Then, when her wanderlust took her to India, Ethel seemed to meet every Indian spiritual leader of that time, from Krishnamurti to Anandamayi Ma to Sunyata to Pak Subuh. But her relationship with Ramana Maharshi and her many years at his ashram clearly touched her most deeply. Mary Ellen Korman does a wonderful job of bringing Ethel's journals alive and giving us a sense of the daily life Ethel experienced, whether at the Prieure or in a rural Indian village or ashram. I also liked the way Korman wove the teachings Ethel received from Gurdjieff into her spiritual journey through India, making connections I never would have seen. Ethel was an indefatigable woman whose good will and vitality remained with her throughout her long life, and I found myself admiring both her zest for life and her willingness to scrutinize her own internal struggles. I highly recommend this book to anyone interested in women's history and spiritual biography.
Ethel Merston, whose lifelong search for the truth of herself led her
to the greatest sages of her time---Gurdjieff, Ramana Maharshi,
Anandamayi Ma, and Sunyata--has her story richly told by Mary Ellen
Korman in this extensively researched book. Rejected by her mother
at infancy, she never allowed that important part of her, the feeling
center, to become fully realized, and it colored her relationships as
she traveled throughout India in her quest. Ms. Korman's account of
Ethel's spiritual search is thorough and beautifully written.
Invaluable account of an extraordinary and courageous woman, Ethel Merston, in her spiritual quest, is faithfully recounted by Mary Ellen Korman. Specifically, the unflinching determination of Ethel Merston to deeply seek for the truth in herself is exceptionally recorded in this book by Mary Ellen Korman, for any woman to take note and pay tribute by listening to their own inner feelings and pursue the desires of their own heart, despite all the pitfalls that life can bring along the way.

Now that women have embraced many roles in society, it is imperative for women to recognize their many facets, including the one to honor their own spiritual growth that they can no longer deny. As the author leaves it up to the reader to draw their conclusions, Ms Korman in her book is inviting/engaging every woman to actively participate in their own personal growth, to validate their own experiences by valuing it more deeply as an essential expression of self love and self worth. This would also have the impact to transform the life of others around them. Ultimately, by honoring their feelings they would allow themselves to blossom in many other aspects of their life.
