Many people were frustrated by the ending ...not me though, and it's because of the ambiguity that the movie grew on me. My view on the end: Exiting a cult is a life-long journey, we see her journey just beginning.
It's a classic when the cult leader tells her "You're a teacher and a leader." Chilling. How many times did Berg use that one?
Fact is: I think it's good to be disquieted, challenged by unsettling things, like the movie, or by posts on this board.
I wonder what the context was when Hassan said to watch out for triggers. Triggers can be beneficial too. There can be things about a person's past that still need to be addressed, a trigger can help a person's consciousness to grow, it's painful but growth usually doesn't come without any pain.
My loved ones have been successful so far in their brand new lives adapting to jobs, school and all that that entails. But this, the material side of things is probably easier than the real journey, which they are gradually embarking on, the journey being a growing consciousness of the nature of the entity that they have been members of their whole lives.
