Once again I was renewed and rejuvenated after my stay. It was simply awesome from the spa treatments to ALL the staff who are just so gracious and sincere. They make you feel so welcome in every aspect. I met many more wonderful friends and we plan to keep in touch. On my last day I said to a few people "it's always sad on check out day" to which one of the other guests added, "but there's always another check in day in the future." How appropriate. This has become my new favourite quote and really epitomizes the Grail because everyone always comes back....again and again. Thanks to this magical place that is The Grail. ~ Connie Cole Sept 2022

I’ve been coming to Grail Springs over 10 years and throughout its evolution there has always been one constant, the overwhelming sense of peace and goodwill that happens during my experiences when I’m there. I take these experiences like our walks in the woods, the time out on the lake, the yoga, the labyrinth, the meditation and of course the people with me as treasured memories. When I’m home I use the mantra of gratitude, humility, grace and reverence as part of my daily meditation practice. Thank you for being a beautiful source of renewal. ~ Tracy G, July 2019
Grail Springs has exceeded my expectations. I'm touched beyond words. My cup is overflowing with divine gratitude to you all for the most most incredible, awe-inspiring experience of my life.

You have surrounded me with nature's stunning beauty and I am forever grateful. ~ Lisa K, July 2019
A pebble dropped into a pond creates a ripple far beyond. There really is no way of knowing the mystery of how gifts keep growing. When we open up our hand, and one who's down is helped to stand, in turn that one will touch another. Hope can grow and hearts will lift, such is the power of a gift. Your kind thoughts and support are sincerely appreciated. ~ Members of Maynooth & Area Food Bank, May 2019
This space is created in love and I have had the greatest gifts during the time spent here over the years. I came here to heal, focus on me, and with new tools find some answers about who I am. Many answers came, enough to move me forward. The grace and generosity you have all shown is appreciated more than words can express. I felt as though I was a most most welcomed guest in your home. Thank you. ~ Lisa, May 2019
I leave resplendent in grace. Thanks to you and all! ~ Patricia, April 2019

Grail Springs is a beautiful and wonderous orchestra of healing energy.

I am a mom, a wife, a driven software professional, a committed friend, and attentive daughter - but I needed this.

The Grail is a magical place and has such meaning and power. I have lost count of how many times I have stayed and each ones helps me progress on my path. With warmest thanks to Madeleine and your team for sharing this piece of paradise! ~ Sharon H, December 2018
I would like to thank you all for our wonderful stay. When we arrived last Sunday, my daughter was in a critical state. She was in pain and extremely discouraged, thinking no one could help her. Right away, she felt a little better, sensing a climate of security and acceptance, and feeling that no one was there to judge her. Thanks to your amazing team of therapists, she did receive excellent treatments that seem to keep growing on her. More so, she regained hope, an essential component of her recovery! Again, gratefulness and kind thoughts to everyone. Your work does make a difference! ~ DT, August 2018
Grail Springs is a long time love of mine, I discovered it a few years ago when I attended the Grail Lady Faire. After a few years’ hiatus, Madeleine brought back the event this summer. To say that it was transformational in nature is an understatement. From the incredible speakers to the divine therapies, it was truly an incredible time. Grail Springs is the only place in Canada that nourishes the mind, body and soul and offers support that inspires. I feel truly blessed to have this very special place and the l3apwonderful people who work here in my life. I simply love Grail, and all that it does for the world! ~ SM, July 2018
Madeleine, the owner, her staff and what they do are beyond what I expected. The kindness, expertise, healing sessions, workshops, food, just being on the land is extraordinary. I left feeling so clear, inspired, balanced and extremely relaxed like I haven't been in a VERY long time; when I left, I had the energy of a child. I CANNOT wait to return. I highly recommend visiting Grail Springs; the programs are set up to help you re-center, refresh, and renew your mind and body...to feel at Peace. Thank you to Madeleine and your AMAZING staff for a life changing experience. I am SO GRATEFUL to have had this experience of this special place...I'll be back. ~ Warmly, Paula S, July 2018

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

Grail Springs is like the home for our souls!
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.
Debbie K, Ottawa, Ontario March 2015

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.
Thank you for sharing your gifts of care, smiles and light with me this week. With gratitude and reverence, a beautiful space to restore and reconnect with yourself. Wonderful hospitality. Caring 'Soul Food"!
I attended the Fresh Start Retreat Favorite moments: hot tub, talks, and the food. Love the ambiance, calmness. Staff is kind, calm, extremely considerate and enjoys creating a loving environment.
I hoped for the full experience, and was given the full experience. Madeleine's creation is concrete and palpable. Grail itself is a wonderful nesting space; quality, comfort and imagination infuse the building.
I can never thank you enough for giving me the gift of Grail Springs. I just spent the most glorious week there. You have a truly phenomenal staff at the Grail. I'm eternally grateful.
I feel as if I am leaving my parents home, the security, love and understanding. 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. May this very special place continue to blossom and go from strength to strength. With great affection.
A must on your list for an amazing retreat. I highly recommend it. And feel the spirit of the land!
The Grail Springs Wellness Retreat is beyond words. It is like a bath for your soul.
I am grateful for the gift of Grail Springs - for the energy it holds and the energy it attracts. I look forward to my next visit! All the best.
I was feeling pretty broken both physically and emotionally when I arrived for the first night. By the last night I felt like a brand new person and full of anticipation for my new life. Thank you.
This place is my heaven on earth. Absolutely beautiful :) Thanks to all who make me well while I'm there so that I can go back and live in the world.
Spent a week at Grail that will never be forgotten. My life is forever changed and blessed. Namaste
Madeleine Marentette has created an integrated system that fosters body, mind AND spirit, a formula for true wellness and transformation on a personal and planetary scale, greatly needed at this time in humanitys history. I highly recommend her book as it embraces and bridges ancient wisdom of the healing arts with those of the new modern day sciences of mind consciousness. A beautiful gift to the world!

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.
"We would like to thank you for the wonderful weekend! It was more than anything I was expecting. Enlightening, delightful, strengthening and beneficial are the words that come to mind. The staff, instructors, spa experts were professional, friendly, and accommodating. We will be back! Our experience with meditation with Dan was enlightening to the core. Helpful and inspiring to implement into the new chapter of my life that started with my visit. Again, Thank you!"
"Wow. I had very high expectations...everything surpassed my hopes. All of your team is amazing The highlight was the amazing food. I only wish those at home could taste it. Waiting for the cookbook! I love the energy and space. You have done a wonderful job in creating paradise. Thank you for having me and treating me like I belong here. Be back soon. BEST FOOD EVER!!"

Thank you so very much for the fabulous time. Everyone of you was so gracious, friendly and helpful. It was such a pleasure sharing time and space with all of you. I wish all of you much peace, joy, laughter and abundance in all you do. With great appreciation and gratitude.
I just want to thank you for having the vision and for creating Grail Springs. I am grateful for my visits there, for the conference calls, for the website which I look to for reference. All of these things you have done contribute to my spirit and to the metamorphosis of my soul. For that I thank you and am very grateful. Blessings to you.
Thank you to all the staff at Grail Springs. I felt so taken care of, pampered and loved during my 21 days here. This is a wonderful establishment and I cannot wait to return!
Madeleine, I would like to thank you for sharing your experiences and knowledge... You are truly a gifted teacher, I feel blessed to have been able to participate. You answered many questions that I have been trying to find answers to and showed us many tools to contemplate, to guide us to our inner self. Thank you so much. I will definitely be back to Grail Springs Bless you.
To all the staff at Grail Springs... My mother and I had the extreme pleasure of staying at your remarkable retreat centre from November 4th-6th. From the moment we made reservations, to the moment we checked out, the hospitality and service was beyond outstanding. Everyone is to be applauded for such excellence and care. You all made it such a warm and ever so welcoming experience, one truly felt very much at home. My thanks again to all.

Each person involved with the program has made a big contribution to my 'Grail' experience - yes, everyone. The behind the scenes staff who I haven't met have all been important. Many thanks to all of 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.
This experience has reached into my soul. It has changed me in ways I could not have imagined it is the whole experience from the talks, the yoga, the walks, the meditation. The entire staff seemed to come together to make my stay truly complete and successful. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. I will sing your praises to everyone I meet. Peace & Blessings.
As I write this, my eyes fill with tears in thankfulness, and as for my cup, it runneth over. Thank you for you, to have and to hold the vision of what is possible. Blessings and love.
To the whole staff ~ You all rock my socks off!! I can't stress this enough. Bless you all and your whole lives. Madeleine, you are inspiring. Thank you for reminding me that this Knight can succeed in finding the Grail.
To the wonderful staff at Grail Springs... thank you for healing me in more ways than one! I will cherish everyone moment I spent here.
Thank you for creating such a wonderful sactuary! I have loved being here and can feel the magic that is present!
I had the pleasure of participating in the Sacred Butterfly Retreat. I greatly appreciate all the thought, energy and meticulous planning that goes into making every aspect so incredibly powerful. It's truly been a magical experience that I will hold close to my heart to learn and build upon always. Thank you for creating and sharing a piece of Heaven on Earth.
Beautiful blessing and love to you for all the wonderful gifts you have brought to us all. Throughout the years it is wonderful to have the chance to come to Grail and as I am growing, I see it is blossoming too. Every time I am here the place radiates more and more each time... Till then, all the best with your endeavors. With love.
I have read many of the ideas shared at Grail Springs, but can and will now put them into practice daily. These 10 days have been eye and heart opening for both myself and my husband. Our lives are forever better. Thank you Madeleine, Judith and your entire staff.
Dear Madeleine, I just wanted to send you a heartfelt 'Thank you' for all you have created and brought into this world through the power of your being... I also wanted to extend my thank you to all of your staff. God bless.
I keep running out of superlatives. I can only put hand over heart, look heavenward and give thanks!
I celebrated my 60th birthday here, a wonderful, uplifting way to start my new life!
Spent 10 days in the eco-tabin and had the most incredibly calming and healing experience. I was surrounded by nature and at night I listened to the sounds of the night, watched the fireflies and the occasional deer run by. This truly was a spiritual healing retreat.
Spending Christmas at the Grail is a magical gift in itself. For me, the peace, joy, companionship and beauty filled my heart.
Grail Springs helped me find a way to change my unhealthy habits and old thinking patterns in a peaceful, loving way. Thank you!
The fantastic programs are exentuated by the friendly, caring staff and fantastic facilities!
Grail Springs provided just what I needed to help give more balance to my life. Met some amazing people. The staff was awesome. Thanks Madeleine.
Great food and loved the chat sessions. Fantastic, sweet staff.
Having been experiencing major depression for the last 2 years... My experiences at Grail Springs have allowed me to see the ladder that has been there the entire time!! I now have a starting point to get better I cannot wait to return 'home' once more.
Grail Springs offers an exceptional program and location for an outstanding, life changing experience much needed by many. It is truly providing necessary change.
What you have created at Grail Springs is so special and meaningful to so many people because of what it does for the soul by nurturing and healing.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart. You have INSPIRED me deeply and you have TRANSFORMED my life. It's easy to miss you all when you have impacted my life so. I am so grateful to all of you for myself and for my daughter Elena, we carry you in our hearts. BLESS all of you.
Thank you for sharing this beautiful place with me. I have come here to find myself and I know I have a great journey still ahead of me.
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.
Dear Madeleine: Thank you so much for all the hard work and effort you placed in arranging a successful lecture. All of us working together worldwide, helps to advance the truth and diminish the deception that surrounds modern life and health. Your unwavering commitment is acknowledged and Hippocrates is all that stronger for it. With respect and love.

From the moment I arrived, I knew that this was going to be a very special week Every aspect of this wellness spa is perfect The quality of the food, treatments and accommodations is out of this world. For me it was the culmination of a very long journey, which now has a more defined purpose and path. Thank you.
I came to Grail Springs for rest and relaxation, but what I received in addition was a transformative spiritual experience I leave this wonderful place feeling much more centred in my strength of being - and utterly grateful.
My trip to Grail Springs has been the best thing I have ever done for myself.
