The nonprofit Orixa Healing Arts Wellness and Spiritual Center of Memphis, Tennessee, is hosting the Womyn’s Wellness Retreat on June 3 and 4 in Douglasville, Georgia. The retreat centers around practicing “radical self-care and healing in community,” says Orixa’s founder, Orisha Bowers.

The retreat will be held at the Ambience Event Space at 2127 Fairburn Road, Suite D, Douglasville, on June 3 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., and at Hunter Memorial Park at 8830 Gurley Road, Douglasville on June 4 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. The event is free, but donations are encouraged. 

“Orisha Healing Arts promotes healing through mindfulness, movement and the expressive arts,” says Bowers. “Our proven techniques increase wellness indicators for persons experiencing various forms of chronic illness, traumatic experiences, stress management issues and burnout. As a form of alternative medicine, healing is encouraged through the use of the expressive arts and movement.” 

Leading the movement portions of the retreat is Bowers’ son Jeremy, a teaching and performing artist apprentice with the New Ballet and Ensemble School in Memphis and the assistant director at Orixa Healing Arts. He is also a certified instructor of Dancing Mindfulness.
