New Orleans Healing Center
The New Orleans Healing Center grew out of a salon think tank, whose members met to explore creative solutions to New Orleans’ vast recovery challenges following Hurricane Katrina.
We recognize that healing must occur holistically and synergistically on the energetic, physical, environmental, economic, intellectual, emotional, social, cultural, and spiritual levels at once. It must be available to everyone, no matter what race or income.
The challenges we face are precisely our strengths and elucidate the absolute necessity that we fulfill our mission. Our significant challenges include establishing the first, nontraditional, holistic healing center in the Gulfsouth, a pioneering location, serving all races and income ranges, subsidizing the poor, and requiring the contributions of a developing team with disparate viewpoints and skill sets.
The Healing Center Governing Board will be composed of racially diverse businessmen, healers, artists and academics, all with well-considered opinions and perceptions who share our commitment. It is the diversity of worldviews and talents among the members of the Governing Board that will assure our extraordinary mission and vision will be accomplished. Additionally, we are aware that we will need to make significant outreach efforts into the community.
