Featuring: My Grandmother’s Hands: Racialized Trauma and the Pathway to Mending our Hearts and Bodies by Resmaa Menakem, MSW, LICSW, SEP


The Everything Space and The Vermont Kindness Project present 8 week study groups to address racialized trauma.  Join together to engage deeply with Resmaa Menakem’s potent book My Grandmother’s Hands.  Experienced facilitators will guide important conversations and somatic practices. To dismantle racism we must collectively address the racial trauma held in our individual and collective bodies.  Learn how all bodies are impacted by the collective trauma of racism, though each body is impacted differently and disproportionately. My Grandmother’s Hands offers steps to embody vitally important change.  This facilitated book group will offer a container to do this necessary work.
