Healing from trauma and the anxiety of the racial divide in America depends upon six opportunities: “Healing on your own; healing with another trusted, caring person; healing in community; healing with the help of a body-focused healing professional; and healing with the help of a trauma therapist.” Most of us can practice the first three by reading MY GRANDMOTHER’S HANDS: Racialized Trauma and the Pathway to Mending Hearts and Bodies.”

“Our everyday lives present us with endless opportunities to heal – through things we say and do, the harmful things we are able to NOT say and do, and the ways in which we treat ourselves and others. We all have the capacity to heal – to create room for others to heal. Our relationships, communities and circumstances all call us into this healing.”
