Within every human, a dormant potential force exists awakened, waiting for release. The higher our self-awareness, the further up the spine our force will travel; changing our spiritual energy and ultimately who we are. This is called kundalini rising. It can be intentionally triggered when a person is on a spiritual journey desiring these experiences so that they might reach higher consciousness. However, for many people, the kundalini rising is triggered unexpectedly. The experience can make the inner journey toward self-awareness physically unbearable leaving the spiritually unguided potentially more confused than they were before their inner force began to rise. I AM (2012) is an experimental short that explores the kundalini rising through dance.
