2018 Spring Newsletter – Wisdom of the Grail
Sent Tuesday, May 1, 2018

There is one subject that really lights me up without fail. Any mention of Grail legend and you have my full attention. What is the Grail? The Grail is a symbol that means different things to different people, and some people swear it is a physical object. The image pictured here is the Vesica Pisces that is on the cover of the Chalice Well in Glastonbury. Early Christians thought of the symbol as the meeting of Heaven and Earth. The place where the two circles met was known as the Fish, a symbol for Christ. Others see the symbol as the meeting of the masculine and feminine, the dance of the Green Lady and the Green Man. There is also a 2,000 year old rumor that Joseph of Arimathea came to Glastonbury England bringing with him the Grail Cup that had been used during the Last Supper, and also contained the blood of Christ from the Crucifixion.
