the grail and the sword,restoring the forgotten archetype.

for those who may be interested,
something of interest i found with regards to the grail myth,
the grail archetype itself ,seems to be the object, people are attracted to, this article explains the forgotten archetypes that surround the myth,that are just as important ,
namely the sword excalibur,
this all has reference to the individuation process,as it is from a jungian and campbellian perspective,

i hope you find it helpful.

Steve,
The link you provided leads to a 'Page that can not be found'. Perhaps a mistake in the URL.

The Grail King is one of my favorites. My own take on the grail is it represents the soul. Everyone is looking for something physical in the grail when all along it is spiritual.

Hi Steve

I have 'just discovered' the Grail myth - well rediscovered, and looking at it with new eyes ,,, what a myth !
I picked up one of Robert Johnsons little books - The Fischer King + The Handless Maiden' - and from there 'The Return of King Arthur' by Diana Durham. and that lead me to 'The Grail Legend' by Jung + von Franz - but that is just too heafty for just now ,,,
So I would appreciate a copy of the link you mentioned

thanks

Interesting too, to compare to new versions and theories about the 'chalice' in the grail being a symbol rather than a real object, such as in the 'Da Vinci Code' where the 'chalice' is the womb of Mary Magdalene, leading to the controversial views and discussions about whether Jesus had a family or not.
