craneQuest is a dynamic process in which everyone involved has opportunities to practice being present to themselves and each other and to find support in discovering what it can mean to live from a place of spiritual integrity. Being able to see this modeled through the words, actions, and presence of facilitators, the spiritual program director, minister, and mentors throughout the Quest experience is a powerful way to support and honor participants on their journeys.

If crickets didn’t sing

So loud, telling how warm

It is, you’d hear quieter things—

Flies landing, flick

Of the frog’s tongue,

The heron stepping.
