Since 1984, Bennett Books Publishing has: reissued new editions of twenty-one of J.G. Bennett’s out-of-print titles; has published one previously unpublished manuscript, Making a Soul; and one book by Allen Roth, an in depth memoir of his year at J.G. and Elizabeth Bennett’s Sherborne Academy for Continuous Education, Sherborne, Gloustershire, England: Sherborne: An Experiment in Transformation.
In 1987 David Hirsch, of Hirsch Vineyards, concerned that Mr. Bennett’s works would disappear, offered James Tomarelli, of Bennett Books, non-interest loans to publish four of Mr. Bennett’s out of print works.
Since 1989 the publishing costs for Bennett Books’ titles have been financed by: 1) money raised by James Tomarelli, the publisher, from his Gurdjieff Dance Workshops, and 2) by a kind donation from a former Movements Intensive participant who remains anonymous.
