Myths and Legends for Children & Parents: Odysseus & the Cyclopes

January 17 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

Free
Dear friends
We would like to invite you to the Myths story hour on Skype this Sunday to pick up the thread of a pilgrimage, which represents a journey to self-perfection.
We start as we set sail with Odysseus after the battle of Troy when he leaves to return to his homeland, Ithaka; he has been away for many years but his return takes him through 12 adventures and trials.
____________
The story shows that not only “propitious winds” (representing harmony & good fortune) are needed but also the old virtues of intelligence, courage, modesty and wit, which will bring success to the journies we make.
We will also re-read part of Sinbad’s 3rd Voyage that we did in December, as the stories share many identical events, like a one-eyed, man-eating giant who is blinded with a spike by the hero, but who still tries to sink the hero’s escaping ship by throwing tremedous rocks at him.
____________
We will call as usual at 10:55 am, much looking forward to going on another adventure with you!
Here is the illustrated text Odysseus & the Cyclopes and the 3rd Voyage.

_______________________________________________

The practical wisdom of these stories makes them enjoyable for parents and children of all ages from 7 and up.

We hope you and your children will enjoy them, if you are new please contact us by email first.

The first and third Sunday mornings each month.

Email info@theosophy-ult.org a day or so before the meeting.

The previous event on 3rd January 2021 was “Janus, ‘Roman Myths’ and the New Year.”
