The Grail is a life-changing, transformational journey for men based around a rite of initiation for each man. It is an initiation into the feminine mystery and thus uniquely guided by three women who serve as midwives through this extraordinary and powerful rite of passage.
The three-day weekend is challenging, and requires courage and the willingness to meet the unknown. It also requires that each man feel his longing to meet his own unique essence, his most authentic and essential nature. It is a reclamation of part of a man’s soul and allows tremendous healing and transformation.
This space allows each man to be held in the most loving and sacred space as he explores any limitations, fears and wounds he wants to move beyond. Infinite opening is then possible.
Each man is welcomed to a powerful breakthrough and the possibility to welcome his wild and instinctual self, his full potential as a man.
Each man’s own rite of initiation, as well as being witness to the journeys of others, allows him to find right relationship to himself, his body, his loved ones, his community and the earth – symbolised in the image of the green man that is used for The Grail. This archetypal figure stands in many cultures for rebirth into male power in harmony with nature and the feminine.
Many speak of a homecoming, a self-remembrance, a deeper grounding in their own masculine being, and a life-changing experience through this weekend journey. There can be a new and deeply satisfying experience of ongoing brotherhood. The Grail offers a vast and limitless, healing and safe space that can hold anything, and offers the most amazing and unique transformation.

“When I came across the quote, ‘Would the boy you once were be inspired by the man you’ve become’ I wanted to say, ‘Yes’ because I didn’t want anyone to know how dead I was inside. Well now, I can tell you that I have never felt more alive, more whole, more balanced in my entire life.”
“It was very intense for me. The men completely had my back though and I decided for myself that I was going for it. The funny thing is I went into it wanting to be a better husband and father, but came out of it with so much more than that.”
“I was scared of being seen. Of having anyone know how scared I was. Now I laugh at the thought. I can’t believe it took me this long to get out of my own way.”
