Workshop Quick Take:

We can’t begin to help heal racialized trauma if we don’t acknowledge that it exists. In this immersive experience, New York Times bestselling author and Meadows Senior Fellow Resmaa Menakem guides participants through somatic abolitionism — an embodied anti-racist practice and process of culture building that he developed.

All About the Workshop

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? In this immersive experience, Resmaa Menakem guides you through somatic abolitionism, the 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 your own and collective bodies.

This emergent somatic abolitionism practice is a form of maturation into a more integrated human experience and a way of being in the world. It uniquely provides you with the foundational skills to cultivate somatic abolitionism personally and communally. Curated to support diversity and inclusivity among white and BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, People of Color) participants, this workshop will include both full group sessions and concurrent sessions in which BIPOC and white participants will separate to explore the work. If you are a white-passing body of culture, you can decide what feels right for your journey.
