Piero Ferrucci gives a lecture on ”The Odyssey: finding the way home” on 11 April 2019 between 18.00-20.00

The Odyssey is one of the greatest adventure stories ever told. Homer, the blind poet, collected tales that were circulating in his times: stories of perseverance, of intelligence in the face of frightening difficulties, and of courage triumphant. He turned them into a masterpiece. The Odyssey has its source in the depths of the human soul, and tells the story of you and me.

We are proud and happy to welcome Piero Ferrucci to Stiftelsen PsykosyntesAkademin to mark the second quarter of our jubilee year celebrating 30 years as a trust and school of Psychosynthesis.

Piero Ferrucci, author, philosopher, psychotherapist and psychosynthesis teacher continues to captivate audiences and readers all over the world.

He has written many unforgettable books. One of the latest, “Your Inner Will”, takes us on a journey through qualities like freedom, autonomy, mastery, courage, grit, resilience and a state of grace with the final chapter telling the story of the Odyssey. The book provides concrete, meaningful lessons in developing internal willpower during times of a personal crisis.

Welcome to join us for this special lecture! Light refreshments and snacks will be served from 17.30 and the lecture will commence at 18.00.
