“My Grandmother’s Hands”

with Rev. Dr. Shannon Craigo-Snell

A Virtual 3-Part Study for Women

Thursdays, April 7, 14 and 21, 2022

12:00 pm to 1:30 pm EST

Cost: Free


This three-part series will engage the book, My Grandmother’s Hands: Racialized Trauma and the Pathway to Mending Our Hearts and Bodies, by Resmaa Menakem. This insightful and accessible text offers new ways to think about ourselves, race in the U.S., and how we can build a better society.  Our first meeting will center on understanding trauma. The second session will address how trauma can illuminate the realities of racism in the U.S. Our final meeting will explore how embodied practices can help heal trauma and prevent it’s ripple effects. Each session will include brief lecture, lots of discussion, and centering practices.

Plan to learn over lunch! You can partake in your lunchtime nourishment while we expand our knowledge, understandings, and have an important conversation with Rev. Dr. Craigo-Snell and other women seekers.

Grant funding from Sisters of Charity of Nazareth and PCUSA Racial Equity & Women’s Intercultural Ministries allows us to offer this study free. If you would like to make a donation to help us continue racial justice programs in the future, please click here to make a donation to Spirit of Sophia.
