Sail the Wine Dark Sea: Session 10 (Conclusion)


Session Ten: Nine stops. Nine lessons. On to the “third half of life.” Can we enter the symbolic/spiritual life, bringing the earth, ourselves and heaven together – as they must be? Odysseus is given a specific task to entertain symbolism, to embrace the spiritual life. We need to determine for ourselves how and if we will enter the symbolic life, embrace our sense of spirituality. What is my legacy? What task? What is mine to do? The purpose of the quest.

Set sail on the wine dark sea with Odysseus as he travels from Troy to Home in Ithaca. A distance of 565 nautical miles, a two-week sea cruise. It takes ten years! Sail the sea, meet the monsters, applaud the help-mates. Partake of bread, cheese and wine – even if metaphorically. On our way home we will travel the Enneagram in counter-clockwise order. Every encounter along the way has lessons, questions, warnings and encouragement for us. Odysseus arrives home – not to spoil the ending – a changed man. A different sort of hero. We will arrive home changed as well. His journey is ours.

Using Michael Goldberg’s brilliant book, Travels with Odysseus, we will leave Troy, victorious in that infamous war. Spoils of war filling 12 ships to sail home to Ithaca. The journey mirrors our necessary travels to home, loosening our egos and discovering our gentle strengths, our values, our virtuous selves.
