A hero is confronted with his destiny, while gods and mythical monsters block his way.
He will only return home when he is ready.
The same, like us...
Uncertainty inhibits us when it comes to walking in unknown areas. But we are never alone. Visible and invisible allies appear, often in unexpected ways. One of them was offered to us by Homer in the Odyssey.
Could you imagine that the journey of your life corresponds to the journey of Odysseus? And we, like him. we wander from experience to the next experience. We meet one-eyed giants, we fight to resist the challenges of the Sirens, we are crushed by difficult choices between Scylla and Charybdis, sometimes we sink as if to reach Hades and other times we rise relying on human and divine help. In Odysseus' epic journey there is a secret code that describes the stages we go through as we travel in life, making choices and rough decisions, losing our way, find it again and continue asking to return to the place of our heart. In our Ithaca.
