About our service:

In the book “My Grandmother’s Hands: Racialized Trauma and the Pathway to Mending Our Hearts and Bodies,” therapist and writer Resmaa Menakem examines the damage caused by racism in America from the perspective of trauma and body-centered psychology. He explores the impact of racism on bodies of people of all races. He offers tools to help heal the trauma of racism through body-centered practices. This service will explore Menakem’s teachings and how we can apply them in our everyday lives.
