Healing Center

Faubourg Marigny & Bywater

The bright-orange Healing Center is a sort of warehouse of all things organic, spiritual, New Age and consciousness-raising. Inside, you'll find yoga studios, performance spaces, a sustainable food co-op, and a central entrance hall that houses large voodoo shrines that are utilized by local adherents of the religion.
