Testimonials

 
I wanted to thank you all for a truly magical experience. The staff were all so warm and caring and it is obvious they love serving at The Grail. With all the treatments, talks, movies, yoga and interactions with other guests and staff, I had a very profound  experience. You have helped me understand and believe that I am beautiful and have value and therefor must nurture myself. Thank  you for the food, the fellowship, and mostly, the love you shared. With gratitude, Jody PM March 2017
 
Dear (guide dog) Ojo, and (horse family) Pete, Choco, Natasha and little sweet Gracie.... Thank  you for sharing your space and energy with me. You have all taught me a lot about just being. And to all the wonderful Grail Team, Thank you to everyone. Your work here is so valuable to me when I am here, as well is when I am not here. You all do a beautiful job. With respect, Kim 2017
 
After a couple of years since my visit to your place, I am proud to share that I have become vegan. I finally understood it and it clicked inside of me. Documentaries like Thrive, Forks Over Knives, Food Inc, Collapse, these all brought some education and light to my life. Salud y amor. Eduardo May 2017
 
It doesn't get any better than this! I can't say enough about how wonderful my stay was.  I booked there with some reservations:  I'm not a vegetarian, I'm not particularly wealthy, and, coming from a science background, I thought some of the treatments were too "woowoo" for me. But I was surprised at every corner. The food was delicious, beautifully presented, graciously served, and very satisfying. The staff and other clients were lovely. The treatments were remarkably effective. And my spiritual life has been immeasurably enriched. Stay at least a week, if you can possibly do it. It will be worth every penny! Thank you for all you've done in making this wonderful place available to all of us who are seeking. Deanne M May 2017

I came to Grail Springs not knowing what to expect--except that I knew I really needed some time for self-reflection and personal growth. I couldn't have asked for a better overall experience. The staff were so helpful and kind and I was blessed to encounter a group of guests who each taught me something. The spiritual services that the Grail offers are truly unique and I am so grateful that I chose to visit. Christina S, Oct 2016

I wanted to send this email to say what an amazing experience my weekend stay at Grail Springs Retreat was. I was quite nervous, however I felt the calmness and serenity of Grail Springs the minute I drove through the entranceway of the retreat. In anticipation of my visit, I read in great detail the Grail Spring website and I can say that it is everything the website claims and much much more.  The accommodations are luxurious but not pretentious, the social atmosphere is inclusive but not intrusive, the days are full but not rushed, and each meal is a exquisite dining experience. Thank you Madeliene Marentette and all the staff at Grail Springs for making Grail Springs such a magical place.  It is the real deal, a 5-star health resort in beautiful Ontario where one can truly revitalize one's body, rejuvenate one's mind and rediscover one's spirit. Namaste! Judy L, June 2016

My experience at Grail was absolutely wonderful!   The staff so caring and nice, the food -absolutely amazing, even the juice detox was great. I enjoyed ever minute and made some lovely friends.  The speakers were very good and I must say, my room was divine. The grounds so peaceful and safe. October was a nice month to come with the beautiful fall colours. I loved the mantra, yoga and meditation, such a calming way to start the day. I would certainly come back.  Such a stress free time to reflect, think and just be.
Thank you!

Grail Springs is like the home for our souls!
Tere Lopez

From the moment I drove onto the property I was overwhelmed by the natural beauty that I saw before me and how peaceful it was This was by far the most transformative 2 weeks of my life... it left me feeling amazing and my pain subsided dramatically, as I suffer from Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. I then continued with the Alkaline Diet plan and enjoyed every meal, and before I knew it I no longer craved caffeine, sugar, alcohol or meat. I have now incorporated it into my everyday routine. Thank you again Madeline for sharing, and giving us all this magical gift called Grail Springs.

Shervin ~ April 2014

My five day stay during the yoga retreat was truly transformative. This tranquil setting took me from a place of tension and fatigue to a place of being centred. At home, my diet has improved, I've lost 8 lb, I'm mediating twice a day again. It was worth every penny"
Janet ~ April 2014

I came to Grail Springs in search of something, or was it to escape the reality of becoming another year older and not feeling fulfilled with my life? Was it to find answers, to heal, to make new friends, to have quiet time for reading, to try new experiences like meditation, mantra, to discover more about my true self? The truth is it was all of the above. Grail Springs is a magical place. It transforms you into a positive being. I highly recommend this wellness retreat. You'll leave here very happy and a grounded person. Five stars from me.

I had a lovely time at the Grail Wellness Center. The grounds are peaceful and beautiful, my room overlooking Chalice Lake charming. The morning mist rising over the lake was perfect for morning meditation. The vegetarian meals were exceptionally good and served in such an appetizing way. Special praise to all of the kitchen and wait staff.... In any vacation, it is important to know what it is you want from it. On this trip, for me, it was peaceful surroundings, good food, programs of interest and lovely people to interact with during my stay. I got it at Grail. Thank you.

I just stayed at Grail Springs for the second time. The second experience was even better than the first time. The food, the ambience, the lake and activities as well as the other guests were just a pleasure. However, the best thing about Grail is the staff. They are all unbelievably wonderful... They are all a pleasure to deal with and make Grail special. I will return again next year just to be near them again.

Ruth F.

From the guys perspective my expectations of accommodations, spa treatments and dining at Grail Spa were high. I think its important to note that I am not a vegetarian and I love my coffee and diet cola. While on their website, I didnt read the section that clearly stated Grail Spa was strictly vegetarian, no caffeine, no pop, no alcohol I suppressed my instincts to run and chose to be open to this new experience Best decision I ever made What isnt on the website and what no amount of currency can purchase is the magic of this place For 72hrs, this place let me focus on me you cant put a price on that.
Mark M.

There is something special about Madeleine's presence, her way of being, and her way of communicating. When Madeleine speaks to you, you feel something deep inside of you ignite. The information she conveys enters you at a very deep level, and you are forever changed for your highest good.
Coach Michele Caron

Madeleine teaches from a powerful place of experience. A gifted teacher and generous in her sharing, if you are ready for transformation, if you are ready to deepen your connection with body, mind and spirit there is nothing more powerful than one of Madeleine classes/retreats. Today, after almost a year since my retreat I am still experiencing breakthroughs in my relationship with Self.

You are surrounded by the most beautiful special setting where you relax, restore and refresh yourself while being attended to by the most caring people that become like family and friends. The food sends your tastebuds delirious. When you leave this magical place, your first thought is " how quickly can I come back?

As each day passed I felt more settled and find it hard to leave this tranquil setting... the lake, birds, loons, sunrise and set... the forest trails all so healing. I will take with me my new tools and many fond memories of this magical place...Until we meet again, sincere thanks.

I found the Grail in November '09 and it changed my life in every way. I went seeking a place to detox from my addiction to sugar... I came away with so much more. Since visiting Grail Springs I've kept sugar out of my life and I've lost 22 pounds Thanks again to everyone at the Grail!

I came in need of rest and relaxation. The centre practices a well-informed wellness philosophy that is holistic in nature. My stay was fabulous. One important factor in the full experience for me was the incredible food... some of the best meals I've ever had. I look forward to integrating their holistic philosophy into my lifestyle - beginning with the recipes!

The Grail is a place to contemplate issues that decide our life, our future, and to come to fresh insights about them. A place to disconnect from everyday worries and to reconnect with ourselves...

Thank you all very much.
