Shining a Light
Extending Giving Tuesday a day to shine a light on Cassandra Powell, founder of Light of Loving Kindness (LOLK). LOLK is the direct result of Cassandra’s journey of liberation!
After a childhood promise to herself that she’d not only push to access her own freedom but help other teens do the same, Cassandra went from homeless on the streets of Chicago to a yoga and meditation teacher, trauma specialist, college professor, and social justice leadership facilitator.
LOLK empowers the next generation of conscious leaders by providing “access to internal streams of self-awareness, cultivating the self-esteem and confidence needed to pursue their life’s purpose.”
The LOLK team provides hope, health, healing, and wholeness to teens, their families, and communities facing overwhelming odds. Their focus is helping create conscious leaders through youth programming like Self-Love Bootcamps, teen internships, and LGBTQ+ empowerment. They also offer bilingual (Spanish/English) programming to ensure inclusion in the neighborhoods they serve.
