A joint IPS and AHEPA initiative
Featuring Peter Andrews and Peter O'Conner
Due to unforeseen circumstances we have had to reschedule Journey to Nostos.
The new date is Sunday 28 July. We apologise for any inconvenience.
Dr. Peter O’Connor (pictured left) is a renowned author and psychotherapist who has based much of his practice and writing on Greek and Irish mythology. Pete Andrews (Anagnostatos), member of the Ithacan Philanthropic Society Board, is an Ithacan Australian who has had deep personal and ancestral connection to Homer’s The Odyssey all his life.
Join Peter and Pete in a stimulating conversation which traverses the mythical landscape of The Odyssey.
Together they reimagine Homer’s epic, The Odyssey, as a metaphor for the violence in contemporary society, in particular that of male violence.
Hear how a 3000 year old story continues to resonate down the centuries as Peter and Pete explore the important theme of identity and deliver a powerful message about the importance of developing mature, reflective, conscious men, and indeed women.
Where: Ithacan Philanthropic Society Clubrooms
When: Sunday 28 July, 2.00 pm
