Who We Are And Who We Serve

We serve people from all walks of life. We offer our services to whomever will, whenever they choose, regardless of any of the ways that we perceive ourselves to be different including race, ethnicity, color, abilities, class, status, sexual orientation, gender, position, title, and the list goes on. There are no exclusions to those seeking Hope, Health, Healing & Wholeness of mind, body, and spirit.
A Few Things We're Great At Inspiring!
CASE STUDIES: The Secret of Success
Community Is the Key To Our Success
Our Pop-up clinics and many events would not be possible without the support from community volunteers. Students from local university honors society participated as volunteers in our January 2019 Pop-up clinic. Their support was essential in coordinating visitors and services to make sure all those who wanted to receive services were able to access them with ease. Not only did they earn community service hours applicable to their honor society requirements, they also gained invaluable experience supporting community members in exploration and experiencing a variety of healing modalities for increased well-being.
Reboot, Recharge and Find Inspiration
A student struggling with low self-esteem, lack of focus and concentration, and lack of energy attended one of our Pop-up clinics in June of 2019. They participated in a group yoga session, a nutrition workshop, enjoyed healthful food and beverages and connected with the supportive and energizing company of community and our trained and certified practitioners. They walked away from the Pop-up clinic feeling hopeful having experienced easy to do at home, non-invasive, non-pharmaceutical ways to lower stress, boost their self-esteem, and increase concentration.
The latest Light of Loving Kindness workshop held at Wahe Guru Yoga in Chicago was amazing! I normally just stop in for a few hours at these events but I ended up staying the for the whole day because it was that good! The event was so welcoming, and I was able to experience services from practitioners that I normally wouldn't have known about. The cost of the event was so affordable for the value that was provided. Some of my favorite things from the event would have to be the hot stone massage, the light therapy and the Kundalini class by Aneela! Your event has inspired me to gift the services of these healers to my friends and family. May your light of loving kindness continue to spread throughout the Chicagoland area and abroad! Peace n Flow

This organization/ Cassandra and the other Healers are so compassionate and Health Full. I had an opportunity to participate in Night at the Museum and the experience was "off the chain". I recommend this organization, going there, being present there and receiving a wonderful healing. I am grateful to have connected with the Light of Loving Kindness!💚💚🙏

I so LOVED the LOLK event! It's so amazing what Cassandra has done bringing together different healing modalities and speakers all at one event for one low cost. I enjoyed ALL of the services from the reflexology to the light therapy to the yoga to the hot stone massage (oh my God, it was soooo good I didn't want it to end) 😍. Ending the day with the sound shower was just spectacular... the sweet icing on the cake. 🙌 So relaxing.

I really appreciated the variety of Offerings at Chance the Rapper's event at the Museum of Science and Industry. This was a major step up from 2019 with LOLK becoming a vendor made a big difference on many people's experiences. It is wonderful to experience the blending of alternative holistic services/experiences with traditional performing arts at my favorite museum in the city! Thank you Cassandra/LOLK.🌺❤🌺

Thank you, Light of Loving Kindness (LOLK) for allowing me to participate in such a profound event that truly did what it set out to do, Support the Community! Grand Respect to Chance The Rapper for reaching deep into his "Green Chi Reserves" and making such sizable Grant donations to LOLK and a few other organizations who's objectives are in sync with the ideology of community preservation. Thank you, Cassandra Powell for trusting in me to do what eye do!
