Grail Haven was established in 1995 on Mount Tamborine in Queensland, Australia.
Geraldine was guided to Grail Haven after experiencing a life changing vision at the Little St Michael’s retreat house, Chalice Well, Glastonbury in Somerset, UK. Major Wellesley Tudor Pole appeared to her in spirit form addressing her as ‘Daughter of the well’. He then telepathically conveyed to her a message. She was to go to Australia to find a well with unique properties, a sacred well, and then to ‘get the waters to the people’. To this present day the water from the springs has been hand bottled by Richard and Geraldine with loving volunteers and sent all around the world.
Grail Haven’s land is ‘One Sacred Acre’, with a house and beautiful gardens. As time went on Geraldine experienced another vision – this time of Archangel Michael instructing her to travel to the Michael ley line in England. This was to become the ‘Sacred Sites Tour’. Every year since the vision Geraldine and Richard have taken groups to the many sacred sites of Britian and Europe including the most important sites attributed to Archangel Michael.
The years passed again and in 2006 she met with Beings who instructed her to work with the plant and flower Devas of the garden. This resulted in Geraldine ‘seeing’ of Devas (Sanskrit for Shining Ones), and subsequently a set of thirty-eight flower essences were birthed.
