This is what I produced for my senior thesis at CIIS, for a degree in Interdisciplinary Studies. It is an attempt explore spirituality and emotional healing in the context of protest and civil disobedience. Moreover, I wanted to examine the relationship of citizen to state with greater depth than what is commonly talked about. Are protests moments of breakthrough or breakdown in that relationship? How has taking part in an act of civil disobedience affected participants emotionally and spiritually? What came out of this effort was deeply meaningful for me personally, and I hope that viewers notice the commonality of the subjects responses. They have never actually met one another, but they use words like, "community" and "healing" with remarkable frequency, and an intention that seems to reflect a value system that truly connects them. I was so blessed to have their participation and they have my utmost gratitude...not just for appearing, but for everything they have done to be who they are.
