DESCRIPTION

In the Odyssey, Homer diagnoses the central problem of ancient Greek society to be that the warrior archetype leaves the male psyche chronically out of balance.  He presents a model of balance wherein sol is contained within luna, known by the ancestors who venerated the great goddess. This seminar will present the journey of Odysseus and particularly the encounters with feminine figures as illustrative of how the Self restores balance when the crisis of imbalance prevails. It will be suggested that the text provides psychological and spiritual wisdom that can help to address the contemporary crisis of masculinity.
