Sail the Wine Dark Sea: Session 9 (Ones)


Session Nine: Poseidon shows up again and Odysseus with help from Zeus escapes with his life – barely. Once again floating in the salty sea – rescued by the high-minded Phaecians who personify honesty and integrity. No shortcuts here. Practice our best selves, our virtues – that is what ones have been telling us all along. This is the last stop of rejuvenation and story-telling before Odysseus returns to Ithaca – to encounter great trouble.

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.
