"The greatest of all capabilities of a human being is to become born again" ~ Rumi 
 

During this theme week participants will immerse themselves in the Grail Springs 7 Keys Philosophy along with informative and focused evening sessions to help you embrace new beginnings. Guests will arrive home with revived self-confidence and many new tools to continue on and ensure a fresh start in life.

This retreat will motivate and provide a space which allows one to let go of the past with trust and gratitude and make room for the new.

Changing anything in life takes intention, will, vision, and finally, a fresh perspective. Change most times comes about by way of a crisis in life; health, career or relationship. It is key, that when you know you need to make a change in your life perspective, that a new environment is needed to provide a place where new ideas can take root, grow and become a solid foundation to bear new fruit into the future. Grail Springs mission is to provide that very environment where individuals can make a fresh start and transform their life.

"I feel as if I am leaving my parent’s home; the security, love and understanding. I'm leaving it all behind to create part of the wisdom I have experienced to live and create a small island within myself. Everyone at Grail Springs was a very important part of my journey and a heartfelt thank you for that." ~ guest participant
