The Quaking of America: An Embodied Guide to Navigating Our Nation's Upheaval and Racial Reckoning

Ingram-Consortium

9781949481747

In The Quaking of America, therapist and trauma specialist Resmaa Menakem takes readers through somatic processes addressing the growing threat of white-supremacist political violence.

Through the coordinated repetition of lies, anti-democratic elements in American society are working to incite mass radicalization, widespread chaos, and a collective trauma response in tens of millions of American bodies. Currently, most of us are utterly unprepared for this potential mayhem. This book can help prepare us—and possibly prevent further destruction. This preparation focuses not on strategy or politics, but on practices that can help us

  • Build presence and discernment in our bodies
  • Settle our bodies during the heat of conflict
  • Maintain our safety, sanity, and stability in dangerous situations
  • Heal our personal and collective racialized trauma
  • Practice embodied social action
  • Turn toward instead of on one another

The Quaking of America is a unique and perfectly timed guide to help us navigate our widespread upheaval and build an antiracist culture.
