Quest for the Grail 2018

Date:       Saturday, 27th October and Sunday, 28th October 2018

Today’s secular culture has failed to create a spiritual vocabulary that speaks to many men. We do not have to reinvent the wheel. The Grail Quest story emerged at a time of spiritual crisis and its lessons are as relevant today. There is a unique masculine side to healing. This retreat will be a rich time to reflect on life’s timeless priorities – for each man individually and in terms of what he brings to family, work and the world at large. The schedule will include engaging films, a creative process for reflection and conversation, and inspiring ritual.
