My Grandmother’s Hands Discussion Sunday, October 11, 18, November 1, 8, 22 from 12-1 pm

My Grandmother’s Hands: Racialized Trauma and the Pathway to Mending Our Hearts and Bodies by Resmaa Menakem.  Discussion Group starting at the Meetinghouse this fall.  Here’s a link to theJune 6, 2020 interview with Krista Tippitt on “On Being” NPR.   https://onbeing.org/programs/resmaa-menakem-notice-the-rage-notice-the-silence/

The book is game changer in terms of our understanding of race issues in our country and how to heal them.  So hopeful!  In October and November, we’ll spend 5 sessions reading, discussing and doing together the breathing and other embodied practices that the author presents.  It’s a great book!  Since he was on NPR, copies of the book have sold out nationwide. We ordered 10 copies that have already arrived at the Meetinghouse.  If You’d like to purchase a copy for $18,(bulk discount rate), contact Deb Diegoli at uuspringfieldvt@gmail.org. . 

Upcoming discussion dates are Sundays, November 1, 8 and 22 from 12-1:15 pm.
