Sunny Side Up video trailer captures inner journey of a young woman at esoteric school in the 1970s.

Sunny Side Up is BJ Appelgren’s intimate story of her search for wisdom and the power of self-transformation in Sherborne, England with a remarkable philosopher-scientist.
CHARLES TOWN, W.Va. - Sept. 16, 2013 - PRLog -- This book describes the personal details of a tumultuous year at a one-of-a-kind school in England led by philosopher-scientist John Bennett. The school attracted an eclectic assortment of spiritual seekers from many parts of the world. The aim was to pass on what was called the Fourth Way to enlightenment as transmitted by visionary teacher George Gurdjieff. Sunny Side Up offers a vivid picture of the rich and often perplexing lessons that this school provided for its students.

At this school, Bennett wanted to teach his students practical ways to realize their true selves. But first, they would have to see how they behaved in real life. Were they constantly fearful or angry? Could they even carry out simple tasks by themselves? How did they interact with others? What traits prevented them from realizing their own ideals? These self-observations then provided the fuel for the possibility of change. Mr. Bennett would show them essential practices from many ancient traditions to help them achieve their goals.

Sunny Side Up vividly recreates a portrait of what Blake called “organized innocence,” of one who is about to make a leap into a search fraught with the questions that will return with answers in their own good time.”

         James Farrelly, Educator

 “Interweaving the personal, the intimate, and the impartial, BJ recounts her relationship with “the way of practice” in the work of human transformation according to the principles of living and being, which Bennett introduced to her and hundreds of others at Sherborne’s “accelerator basic course.”
