Drawing upon the classical philosophy of the Greeks and Romans we see life as a lifelong journey of learning, a voyage of discovery that lasts as any and every living being draws breath.

The Benediction which is read at every meeting sets out:
May the zest for learning and the renewing power of seeking may the healing joy of laughter and the redeeming power of serving may devotion to passionate causes and the transforming actions of lovebe with us and enlighten our ways throughout the Ulyssean journey

One of the core philosophies over the almost 40 years of existence is that seniors (second stagers) can teach one another and sharing and caring become part of who a Ulyssyean is.
