Gurdjieff concentrated on his still unstaged ballet, The Struggle of the Magicians.
Both the city of Kars and the surrounding territory were home to an extremely diverse population: Kars Oblast was home to Armenians, Russians, Caucasus Greeks, Georgians, Turks, Kurds and smaller numbers of Christian communities from eastern and central Europe such as Caucasus Germans, Estonians and Russian sectarian communities like the Molokans and Doukhobors.
His appearance was striking enough even in Turkey, where one saw many unusual types.
His head was shaven, immense black moustache, eyes which at one moment seemed very pale and at another almost black.
Gurdjieff makes particular mention of the Yazidi community.
Growing up in a multi-ethnic society, Gurdjieff became fluent in Armenian, Pontic Greek, Russian and Turkish, speaking the last in a mixture of elegant Osmanli and some dialect.
Four months later, Gurdjieff's eldest sister and her family reached him in Essentuki as refugees, informing him that Turks had shot his father in Alexandropol on 15 May.
As Essentuki became more and more threatened by civil war, Gurdjieff fabricated a newspaper story announcing his forthcoming "scientific expedition" to "Mount Induc".
During the Bolshevik Revolution, he set up temporary study communities in Essentuki in the Caucasus, then in Tuapse, Maikop, Sochi and Poti, all on the Black Sea coast of southern Russia, where he worked intensively with many of his Russian pupils. In March 1918, Ouspensky separated from Gurdjieff, settling in England and teaching the Fourth Way in his own right.
The two men were to have a very ambivalent relationship for decades to come.
Posing as a scientist, Gurdjieff left Essentuki with fourteen companions (excluding Gurdjieff's family and Ouspensky).
They travelled by train to Maikop, where hostilities delayed them for three weeks.
In the same year, he married the Polish Julia Ostrowska in Saint Petersburg.
