Katrina Sanford - Healing Revolution

Katrina Sanford, Healing Revolution

Date grant awarded: 4/25/2017

Earth Pearl Collective is launching their flagship health initiative, “Healing Revolution,” a health pop-up series to connect marginalized communities with their local creative and alternative healing practitioners. This is the brainchild of Clinical Psychologist Dr. Katrina Sanford and Sadiqua Iman, artist, Ayurvedic Wellness Counselor and Massage Therapist.

“Healing Revolution” is their response to the lack of trauma informed, preventative, and affordable healthcare in underrepresented communities around Seattle, WA. Each pop-up will include movement classes, interactive workshops, live performances, panels, demonstrations, and free services like massage, acupuncture, and health screenings from local providers that offer free and sliding scale services in their practices. Combining health and wellness with arts and culture is Earth Pearl’s holistic approach to community building through community healing.
