About Us

Natural Awakenings S.E. Louisiana magazine was brought to the Greater New Orleans area in October 2007 by publisher Lolita Werhan with the intent of providing a local resource for living well, healing and rebuilding sustainably after the hurricanes of 2005 brought devastation to S.E. Louisiana.
