The Calendar and the Grail

a talk by John Graham Ph.D.

Date: March 28, 2013; Time: 8.00 pm; Venue: Stillorgan Park Hotel

Now that end dates associated with the Mayan calendar have passed, it is possible to reflect with some clarity on the subject. This talk provides an overview of where we stand and what is asked of us. It establishes the calendar’s role in relation to the quest structure of human existence, reviews major strands of Grail symbolism and retells the story of the Grail Quest for our time, revealing it as a special instance of the general structure previously described. It also shows how the Grail myth secretes an amazingly apt diagnosis of our current situation, of the wound that underpins this and a healing that can renew all Earth. The talk is timed to evoke resonances of Regeneration and Resurrection linked with Easter in pre/Christian mythos respectively. No prior knowledge is assumed.

The Calendar and the Grail

a Sacred Play in story, magic, music, dream and dance

Mayo, Ireland, Easter Friday-Sunday

Kilkenny, Ireland, 17th-19th May 2013

‘Birthing the Divine Child’ retrieves our sense of innocence, spontaneity and Divine Origin. ‘Birthing a New Earth’ integrates this awareness with Shift energies of the Mayan calendar, building a Grail vessel to facilitate their embodiment and awakening memory of the Divine Feminine with respect to Cosmos, Earth and Self. This final Play in our post-Shift trilogy incorporates a contemporary enactment of the Grail Quest, uniting Divine Masculine and Feminine aspects in right relationship such that integral powers of Divine Child creativity can be released towards fulfilment of humanity’s critical stewardship role.
