This talk explores the spiritual quest of those who are impacted by systemic oppression and the ways the quest focuses on personhood and the need to access true liberation and wellness. There has always been the call for human dignity by those who are dehumanized, which leads to a deep yearning to discover one’s own human beingness. This discovery often takes place through actions such as meditation, stillness, or deep contemplation. In essence, the spiritual quest is less about one’s religion and more about which path will lead to a sense of thriving despite the eruptions caused by prolonged mistreatment and the fire spewed upon certain groups of people in this world. Our lived experiences shape our spiritual quests.
