Beyond the Forest

The Grail Quest is an archetypal story of the journey of humanity and of each person. Parsifal's search for wholeness - passed down by generations of storytellers- is re-told vividly here by Kelvin Hall. There is a Parsifal in every one of us as we move from the innocence and naivete of forgetting, through courage and surrender, to love and redemption. Impaired by fear, bewilderment, loss and misunderstanding, we learn to trust the instinct of the heart as well as accepting the wisdom and support of others on the way. This ancient story, told by Wolfram von Eschenbach in the Middle Ages, asks us why we restrain ourselves from asking the compassionate question. It shows how the result is our suffering and alienation, and that by engaging with the suffering of others, we acknowledge our own. This brings forth the possibility for transformation and renewal.
