Experience an embodied anti-racist practice with cultural trauma navigator Resmaa Menakem, author of My Grandmother's Hands.

Resmaa Menakem discusses the difference between personal trauma and intergenerational trauma.

As a person of color, an Indigenous person, or a white person, are you open to exploring and healing the effects of racism or supremacy within your own body? Are you interested in doing the challenging work of releasing racialized trauma and building an anti-racist culture?

This is a rare opportunity for an extended retreat with cultural trauma navigator Resmaa Menakem, author of My Grandmother's Hands: Racialized Trauma and the Pathway to Mending our Hearts and Bodies, the first self-discovery book to examine the embodied legacy of racism and supremacy in America from the perspective of trauma and body-centered psychology.

Resmaa guides you through somatic abolitionism—an embodied anti-racist practice and process of culture building that he developed. As you engage in group discussion, somatic awareness, and personal reflection, the process makes visible the invisible within our own and collective bodies.

Resmaa's emergent somatic abolitionism practice is a form of maturation into a more integrated human experience and a way of being in the world. This unique experience provides you with the foundational skills to cultivate somatic abolitionism personally and communally.
