Our event dedicated to the Hidden Wisdom of Poetry at the Greek Literary Society, 23/02/2020
In the series of events we are organising this year to celebrate the 40 years of the work and selfless offer of Omilos, we held a major event at the Greek Literary Society on Sunday 23/02/2020.
An event dedicated to the Hidden Wisdom of Poetry and the way with which Omilos delves into and elevates the concepts, so that the human being is able to see the greatness in what seemed small until now, and thus take a spiritual breath of relief.
The poem “God Forsakes Anthony” by K. Kavafis gave the incentives for us to unravel the hidden wisdom and the uplifting meanings in the company of all the esteemed guests – noteworthy litterateurs, poets, painters and spiritual persons in general, friends of poetry, art and philosophy, members and friends of Omilos.
A room full… full of people, full of thoughts, ideas, full of the Word, full of the fire and the liveliness that exist when the forces unite with one goal: the emergence of the spiritual nature of the human being.
We thank the distinguished litterateurs, artists, members of the Greek Literary Society for the concise greetings with which they addressed the event and for their warm comments on the entirety of our work.
At this point, all we can do is listen with deep emotion to the words of the President of Omilos:
“ ‘Andreas, if the Master dies, what will you do, what will you all do?’ And I responded: ‘Master, we shall continue.’ ‘And so, I can say after 40 years, that Master, we remained steadfast. 40 years. It was on the 14th year of Omilos that he asked us. We expanded Omilos to London, to Turkey, our books are already being published there. I can therefore say that Master, we did it.’ ”
