IMG_0625.resizedIMG_0640.resizedNew Acropolis South Korea has opened a Book Club! The first meeting was about the book The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry.

As we all know, The Little Prince is a symbolic book that holds within it many meanings. Throughout the journeys of the little prince and his meetings with others, we are exposed to simple wisdom, that can open our mind to different life perspectives.

In the Book Club many philosophical questions were raised about how we can stay “forever young” and how we can develop a renewed vision of life and live our life with more happiness and satisfaction?
