A Hero’s Quest
To The Self
October 5 – 7th, 2012
Organizer: Gary Z
The Grail – A Hero’s Quest to the Self asks nothing less than the courage to meet your true self, however he chooses to reveal himself. It is not ‘therapy’ or fixing what’s ‘wrong’, but rather a powerful exploration into the truth of each man’s experience of himself and his full capacity. In the company of men, each on his own unique and courageous journey to authentic Being, we dare life to reveal more than we have ever allowed for ourselves before and to drink deeply from our own Grail of life-source. It is to embrace oneself as God-man and be humbled in that revelation.
It is a Rite of Initiation into the Self
In his Rite each man is invited to dive in and surrender to the ultimate mystery. It is an outrageous leap of faith into NO-thing, the arms of the greatest force of love and the most ruthless revealer of truth. In asking his soul what it most wants of him, no strategy, no plan, no idea is of any use. It is a free-fall of let-go.
An opening to life, NOW!
It asks that he be willing to encounter the unknowable territory of the Divine Feminine, the World of infinite phenomena. All that is terrifying, inspiring, untameable, powerful, tender, creative, destructive, desirable, potent and fertile. It is She who drives men crazy with her unpredictability, yet She who also inspires the pursuit of their noblest goals. She has been called Goddess in many traditions and in many forms. As Gaia, The Great Mother Earth herself, guardian of birth, death and rebirth, she seems to be crying out for reaffirmation in these times of perilous imbalance on our planet. She is asking that her warriors fully embody their potential as a masculine expression of divinity.
