New Juneteenth Event Champions Wellness for Women in New Orleans

Freedom at The Mat Presents Freedom Fête on Saturday, June 15 at Salon22

NEW ORLEANS, June 4, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — Freedom at The Mat (FATM) is excited to announce its inaugural Freedom Fête event on Saturday, June 15, 2024 in New Orleans aimed at advancing women’s wellness. Celebrating the joys of living in freedom with reduced stress, this one-day event is open to women of all ages, social classes & cultures, offering a variety of self-care & ancestrally connected sessions led by five respected New Orleans-based black women wellness practitioners Olivia F. Scott, Faith Hunter, Shanda Domango Brown, Dr. Courtney Arianne Washington and Morrisa Jenkins. Sixty women attendees will experience ancestral breathwork & meditation, healing movement, two health-related conversations, a musical performance by soulstress Cecily, and a curated marketplace of black women-owned, locally based wellness brands including Wicks NOLA, Spirit Blooms and Crescent Crystal Co.

Freedom Fête is an annual celebration & gathering of women encouraging us to free our minds, nourish our souls, move our bodies and live with more joy,” says Freedom Fête Producer & Freedom at The Mat Founder, Olivia F. Scott
