The Journey Back to Where You Are: Homer’s Odyssey as Spiritual Quest

The Journey Back to Where You Are attempts to reclaim the place of Homer’s Odyssey as an allegory for the spiritual quest–a journey from strife and division back to love and unity. Drawing on the works of ancient scholarship, but written in accessible language, it describes the journey we must all make to return from our own internal warlike Troy back to our own “native land.” The volume contains the complete translation of the Odyssey by Samuel Butler, revised by faculty of the Center for Hellenic Studies at Harvard University, and used by permission.
