Beyond the Forest: The Story of Parsifal and the Grail

Kelvin Hall


The Story of Parsifal and the Grail is commonly used in the 11th grade Waldorf Curriculum. The Grail Quest is an archetypal story of the journey of humanity and of each person. Parsifal's search for wholeness-passed down by generations of storytellers-is re-told vividly. There is a Parsifal in every one of us as we move from the innocence and naiveté of forgetting, through courage and surrender, to love and redemption. Impaired by fear, bewilderment, loss, and misunderstanding, we learn to trust the instinct of the heart as well as accept the wisdom and support of others on the way.
