My Grandmother’s Hands: A year-long self-study in the Rooted Global Village
More and more people are waking up to the realization that racism, the pervasive philosophy of white body supremacy (and the myth of race), is a deep and unresolved plague in our world; it wounds, devalues and dehumanizes our siblings of color, and keeps our hearts bound. If you’re here then you, like me, refuse to let this moment pass - where our hearts and minds are converging around the reality of this - without being transformed by it. But where to start? This offering inside of the Rooted Global Village is self-paced and individual, offering monthly content & supplementary learning materials, and also partially communal - we help people organize into triads and have a dedicated connection space around each month's explorations.
Inside of Rooted we also offer a reduced rate opportunity to take part in a Foundations in Somatic Abolitionism intensive with Resmaa Menakem. You can learn more about this inside the Rooted village (click Membership above to learn more).
Supported Study with Resmaa Menakem through Education for Racial Equity (ERE).
This is a unique opportunity to work with renowned trauma therapist and author of “My Grandmother's Hands: Racialized Trauma and the Pathway to Mending Our Hearts and Bodies” and "The Quaking of America: An Embodied Guide to Navigating our Nation's Upheaval and Racial Reckoning" to learn the fundamentals of somatic abolitionism.
