A vision for healing and collective vitality with attention to basically supporting children, women, and men who have endured sexual trauma.
This interview includes footage from and was conducted immediately after filming for VIRGIN in the hills of what is now Oakland, California.

With the exception of very rare and extreme cases, there is within every human being the potential for psychospiritual regeneratiion regardless of traumas the human child endures. Some call this rewilding, some call it spiritual awakening, and others call it healing. Those who are unable to heal require protection so that they are not a threat to themselves and others.
Psychospiritual regeneration is precursor to biological regeneration. As a matter of physiological privilege, human integrity determines the integrity of the human being's ecological community. In being human, there is grave responsibility, thus, to ensure common vitality.
The personal is the planetary. Earth does not require healing so much as many humans are in need of healing and remembering ourselves. Please see Project VIRGIN - www.projectvirgin.com
With request for an ethos of respect grounded in an intuitive practice of discernment that accounts for the life of every tree and the whole forest community, please reject the continued destruction of forest to unearth what is underground.
Total loss of intact forest community continues. And, so, I get to experience the scream born of the loss I most feared for the world: "Public prosecutors in Brazil have opened an investigation after reports that illegal goldminers in a remote Amazon river have massacred “more than ten" members of an uncontacted tribe. If confirmed, this means up to a fifth of the entire tribe have been wiped out." via Survival International

The title of VIRGIN the film references virgin in the original sense:
“Virgin was a label of strength and independence used to describe the goddesses who were immune to the temptations of Dionysus, Greek god of seduction and wine. Virginity was once a term of power.” ~Palo Alto Medical Foundation
VIRGIN began as a spontaneous collaboration between artists, Clare Hedin, Suellen Primost, Megan Hollingsworth, and redwoods of what is now Oakland California. The filming of VIRGIN was made possible through the Tree Sisters network and production is with thanks to financial and/or creative contributions from the following:
