"All of the larger-than-life questions about our presence here on earth and what gifts we have to offer are spiritual questions. To seek answers to these questions is to seek a sacred path."
- Lauren Artress, Episcopal priest and director of Veriditas: Voice of the Labyrinth Movement at Grace Cathedral, San Francisco
