    Can your book be used in schools? I am reading your book and I am all for group work over a period of time. I have carrying my ancestors grief and pain related to apartheid in my body for 20 plus years.

    Thank you, Resmaa Menakem, for the gift of your work. I'm in a women's circle where we are diving into your book and doing the exercises as a group. Getting to experience you explaining your work is providing an even deeper level of understanding for me and I'm starting to get it. By practicing the settling of our bodies out of protective-mode, we can get to a place from which we can listen, learn and transform. Yes please.
