Julie Menhati Singleton | The Breath is Life Spa Healing & Wellness Center
Julie Menhati Singleton brings vitality to community. As a doula, massage therapist, healing touch apprentice practitioner, and owner of the Breath is Life Spa Healing & Wellness Center, Menhati is a resource for wellbeing at every stage of life.
She is an emotional companion to women and children through the birthing process and beyond, she eases arthritis for seniors through hand reflexology, and she guides people on how to awaken their own inner healer. These are just a few of the many ways she moves through her healing and wellness practice.
Earlier this summer, Menhati teamed up with Foundation for Louisiana (FFL) to facilitate two healing workshops: Awaken Your Inner Healer and Living Rainbow Aura Workshop. Funded by Truth, Racial Healing & Transformation (TRHT), the workshops exposed participants to integrative health and wellness tools and knowledge for transforming trauma within themselves and communities.
Menhati is a true pillar of wellbeing and a champion of vitality in the community, and we are proud to participate in a choir of praise for her gifts and services over the years.
On this year’s summer solstice, we celebrated alongside a colorfully clad Mama Menhati—as she is known in community— at the Ashé Cultural Arts Center grand reopening and first revealing of the new O-Jam-Men community nursing lounge, named to honor Mama Menhati and her fellow community elders and advocates, Mama Olayeela and Mama Jamilah.
They are the perfect namesakes for the nursing lounge, where the ongoing intention of wellness for all will live on in a nurturing community and gathering space.
