You, Me, Us, and Racialized Trauma
Somatic Abolitionism is a living, embodied anti-racist practice, a form of culture building, and a way of being in the world. In an immersive audio workshop, Resmaa Menakem presents ten sessions of insights and body-based practices to help listeners liberate themselves—and all of us—from racialized trauma and the strictures of white-body supremacy.
Somatic Abolitionism—Healing Racialized Trauma Begins with Your Body
A Sounds True Audio Original: Intimate, life-changing programs with the leading voices in spirituality, personal growth, and healing.
In our culture, the white body has become the default standard by which all bodies are measured, both philosophically and structurally. As a result, racialized trauma becomes embodied and gets transmitted to later generations as an unquestioned way of being. Yet there is a solution—and it starts in your body.
In You, Me, Us, and Racialized Trauma, expert teacher Resmaa Menakem provides an immersive training in Somatic Abolitionism, sharing insights and practices to help you heal the wounds of racial injustice from the inside out.
Through ten audio sessions, including a Q&A recorded with a live audience, Menakem teaches you some of the transformative concepts and practices of Somatic Abolitionism. Here you’ll discover:
- How to use body-based practices to work with different trauma responses
- The path to building an anti-racist culture through your body
- The 5 Anchors and how to work with your soul nerve and soul muscle
- Key concepts, pitfalls, and strategies for engaging in the lifelong work of healing intergenerational trauma with compassion and curiosity
There are no quick fixes to issues as complex and dynamic as racialized trauma—yet with practice and commitment, each of us has the power to help thwart the virus of white-body supremacy that exists in our society. Backed by scientific research, case histories, and his own insights and experiences, Menakem shares a broad perspective that enlightens and empowers you on your unique journey to healing, justice, and freedom.
