The Powerful Impact of Love Bomb:  ​​

Director’s Statement

Love Bomb is a very personal story.  The idea to reveal what is experienced during a chiropractic service trip like I have been a part of, and the process inspired by 9/11 that led me to discover these trips, has been gestating since the first one I participated in 7 years ago.

 

I have also personally received such fulfillment and richness by experiencing what happens when we let ourselves go totally to the moment of service in the magnitude that we do, seeing hundreds of people in a matter of hours, and thousands by week’s end.  In our trips we surrender to love, service, dirt, sweat and a sea of people laying down in front of us in total trust- to the point of both physical and emotional exhaustion.  I want people who would possibly never have an opportunity to do what we do to be able to feel as if they are there serving.

 

I wonder, how deeply could this inspire them to find out their own capacity and way to love, serve, and heal?

It is quite an unusual spectacle to see thousands of people trust us so quickly with such a vulnerable experience.  While serving I have had the opportunity to witness incredible healing results in short amounts of time.  I wondered, what would happen if we were to document this on film and honestly ask the people we are serving what kind of an impact they feel from what we are doing.

 

I have also become in awe of how beautiful the scenery is where we are serving in Peru.  The love of the people, the connections that happen, the gorgeous colors, these are all such beautiful subtleties that I had seen come off impactful in still photographs and felt could be captured magically on film.  This setting and the intimacy of our small groups inspired me to tell this story as a personal one.  I also feel that the unique setup of a medical clinic hosting our chiropractic group lends a special feeling of unexpected loving collaboration to the film, and the characters of Sandy and Guido del Prado who run the clinic are unique and inspiring as this is their “retirement project.”
The reason I am compelled to make this film now, is because it is a story that invokes hope where it has been lost or stifled.  Hope in the innate capacity to heal, to trust, and to connect.  Hope in human beings, in humanity, and in our loving connection.

So many of us are experiencing feelings of lack of power in the face of global and individual challenges and atrocities, and we need stories that ignite in us the reminder of our total connection to one another, to the life force of love within, and to the inherent capacity for growth, transformation, and impact that we all share.

Love Bomb is this story.  It shows what each of us is capable of, and it asks us to move forward, to gain courage, and to step up to share our unique loving gifts with the world.  I first used the term “Love Bomb” to express what happens when we as chiropractors go into a community and adjust thousands of people at one time, igniting massive opening and change, and deeply impacting consciousness.  Now I see it as the name for the adjustment itself, for a kind word spoken, for a group effort for the common good, and as the loving tendencies of human beings already being expressed throughout the world.  Its time we focus on them, ignite them, and intentionally deliver them!
SMALL ADDS UP TO BIG
Often the “smallest” Love Bombs are the most important ones.  For this reason as a part of the story I will share how my team collaborates with an elementary school teacher and principle near where I live in order to empower the students to know that small acts of kindness add up, and that even without money or “titles” they make a difference in the world.  We go to the school and work with them to help them create “little messages of love” in the form of stickers that they draw.  We bring these to the kids that we work with in Peru, and then bring home stickers in exchange.  ​​​​
​​​​
Small things add up to big things.
​​​​By focusing on the theme of the Love Bomb, teaching people about it and demonstrating it in action with the film I aim to see the question of “what are we capable of” answered in a healthier, happier, and more peacefully empowered humanity.​​​​​

 

Thank you for being a part of it!  With Gratitude, Dr. Rhea

​​​​YOU DON’T HAVE TO BE A DOCTOR TO GIVE SOMEONE A LOVE BOMB- A LOVE BOMB IS ANYTHING FROM A HUG, TO A TOUCH TO A SMILE TO A SWEET NOTE OR EVEN A PRAYER.  IF THERE IS ANYTHING YOU GAIN FROM READING THIS I REALLY HOPE ITS THAT YOU KNOW ITS POSSIBLE TO CHANGE THE WORLD THROUGH ONE LOVE BOMB AT A TIME!
