 ​For Odysseus it was Ithaca...

     For Dorothy it was Kansas...

         For ET somewhere out there... 

And for you? Where is Home?

What does Home mean to you?

How do you know when you arrive?

And- when you arrive is there a next task? Another trip which must be made?

As we travel with Odysseus on his way to Home, we will encounter challenges and questions from the Enneagram Perspectives. Questions to assist us to remove layers of semi-protective coating built up over time, enabling us to travel through life freer and with more integrity and authenticity.  So many lessons to learn – and so magnificently explored in Enneagram expert Michael Goldberg’s insightful adventure text: Travels with Odysseus 

Grab an oar  -   Leave sunscreen at home

Tuesday July 9th: A bit of back story is helpful... 

The Greeks and the Trojans have been at war for ten years. The year is 1184 BCE, Odysseus' men (720 ) load up 12 ships for the voyage home to Ithaca – 565 nautical miles – a two week cruise. Stopping for supplies they meet the Lotus Eaters (Type 9)– and the trip home almost does not get started. Sailing away they rest for the night in view of a beautiful island. Next they encounter the first of many “surprises” --  a Cyclops (Type 8).  They manage to get off the island but also manage to anger the Cyclops’ Dad. Sailing on they “run into” Aeolia (Type 7), an island that floats with no fixed location. Party in celebration, they board their ships and sail away. They learn a lesson about wind and trust and gluttony from this adventure. ​ Experience these adventures and many others in this workshop series. ​Each session, Kathryn will relate part of the tale and pose questions to invite us to look at how we are like these characters.  We get to play all the parts!

Recommended books: Not necessary, but interesting...

The Odyssey, Homer: translated by Emily Watson. Modern, lyrical, a lovely, readable translation. Note:  It is not necessary to read this or any translation as the story will be told with emphasis on how it fits with the Enneagram.  

Travels with Odysseus: Uncommon wisdom from Homer’s Odyssey Michael Goldberg is also an Enneagram scholar, hence his achievement in bringing these two wisdom sources together.  Available on Amazon: 6 copies left.  

Oh, Brother Where Art Thou?  A decent summation and accurate as far as it goes - and lots of fun. - and watching George Clooney is always a worthwhile treat.
