Sunday, February 21st, 2021

location: 578 Powell Street // Good Side Photo Studio

For this first event on Sunday, February 21st, funds from the sessions booked will be going towards Kendra Coupland and her important initiatives that center Black wellness in the community. https://www.kendracoupland.com/about-kendra/

 
Not only does she use healing photography as a tool to help people with self inquiry and trauma healing, she is also a wellness coach and yoga teacher, and has founded the “Spiritual Wellness For Black Bodies” workshops and the “Dark Before The Dawn” wellness retreat for the Black community. https://www.kendracoupland.com/retreats/dark-before-the-dawn/
 

This local retreat centers around healing and wellness specifically for Black folx, and focuses on community building, rest and restoration.

One of the main goals for the next Dark Before The Dawn retreat is to secure a space that is FULLY accessible and will allow those that rely on mobility devices, to attend and even access nature, which is huge!
 
So I am hoping that the money raised from these sessions can help go towards finding and locking down that space!
