Homer’s “The Odyssey,” during his journey home, Odysseus arrives
shipwrecked on Calypso’s island. She is a goddess who falls in love
with him and offers him comfort, safety, and even immortality; but
her gifts are no longer meaningful to the hero. Odysseus feels
trapped and longs to go home.
In this illustrated
presentation you will experience vividly the power of this
fascinating story, but above all you will be probed to explore the
meaning of Calypso’s island in the journey of your own life.
