VANCOUVER SELF CARE RETREAT CENTER
VISIT MY HEALING VORTEX:
HELLO LOVE! My name is Tessa Ridley. I have had the incredible opportunity to work with thousands of people in the last 6 years, and have had over 4500 hours of hands on physical experience, assessing & treating the human body for various ailments by WHOLE-istic means.
It has been revealed to me over time that there is an apparent epidemic, not only in this city of Vancouver, but on a global scale:
WE HAVE NOT BEEN TAUGHT TO TAKE CARE OF OURSELVES- BODY/MIND/SPIRIT AS ONE WHOLE UNIT THAT COMPRISES A HUMAN BEING.
MEANING: SELF CARE IS A FOREIGN TERM TO US ALL.
Men, Women & Children are seemingly living as "visitors" in an alien body, and have little to no understanding of their physical body's self healing capabilities, ultimately causing a severe disconnect to LIFE AS IT IS. We walk around in a body that is always DOING SOMETHING TO US, when in reality, we must LEARN to become the conscious driving force of the PHYSICAL VESSEL. YES! We can learn this.
Chronic body pain, malnutrition & dehydration, digestive problems, poor sleep, panic & anxiety, fatigue, mood swings, lack of motivation ... + RESULTANT LOW SELF ESTEEM & "SOUL LOSS" ( a term recently used by Dr. Lissa Rankin) is plaguing billions of humans world wide.
My intent of this crowd funding endeavor is to secure a site in the lower mainland of Vancouver where a COMMUNITY BASED SELF-CARE RETREAT CENTER can be built.
1. Because Vancouver is notoriously known as being difficult to meet new people, resulting in isolation & preventing humans & families from thriving under a village support mentality.
2. Because we all need space to come together, UNITED, knowing we do not have to suffer alone in our bodies & mind.
3. Because ALL HUMANS deserve to know their body can naturally heal itself from almost any ailment when:
•the Physical Body is acknowledged & supported
•the Emotional Body is clear of other people's influence
•the Mental Body is encouraged to thrive in creativity
•the Spiritual Body is honored
All on a daily basis.
And this can all occur with COMMUNITY BASED LOVE, SUPPORT & MUTUAL INTEREST FOR OUR COLLECTIVE EVOLUTION.
This Center will be called: Nomad at The Den.
We will provide INDIVIDUAL RADICAL SELF CARE PROGRAMS to help our community thrive in SELF MOTIVATED, SELF LOVING ACTIVITIES, which will in turn support multi generations to come.
This will include providing:
AFFORDABLE HOLISTIC THERAPIES for Families-INCLUDING:
ACCESS TO INFORMATION ABOUT:
•Human Nutrition & Hydration
•Conscious Daily Movement for Tissue Health & Body Integration
•Conscious, Healthy Sexual Practices
•Expression of Personal Boundaries
•Depression & Anxiety Healing & Management
WE WILL ALSO BE PROVIDING WOMEN'S CIRCLES TO DISCUSS HEALTH & SPIRTUAL CONCERNS AMONGST A SUPPORTIVE COMMUNITY SUCH AS:

•Breast Health Information & Introduction to Breast Massage
PROVIDING MEN'S CIRCLES TO DISCUSS HEALTH & SPIRTUAL CONCERNS AMONGST A SUPPORTIVE COMMUNITY SUCH AS:

IMAGINE A WORLD WHERE EVERY CITY HAD THEIR OWN NOMAD AFFILIATE, WHERE WE CAN CONNECT AS A COMMUNITY ONCE MORE. SHARING KNOWLEDGE. SUPPORTING FAMILIES. CARING FOR THE ELDERLY. ALL WITH RESPECT FOR THE TRANSIENT NATURE OF OUR EVOLUTIONARY PROCESS.
WE MAY BECOME CO-CREATORS OF A NEW WORLD. AS THE NEW HUMANS. HOMO-NOVUS. HOMO-UNIVERSALIS.
I am eternally grateful for my education & the incredibly inspiring people I work with every day that have encouraged my dream up to this point. My education about my body transformed my life. I suffered from a 20 year battle with bulimia, binge alcoholism, hyper-promiscutity, self harm & a lack of personal boundaries. All because I had not been taught to honor my body, ever. I learned how to hate it, starve it, compare it to others, ignore it, but never to LOVE IT.
Human Biology is MIRACULOUS. We have the inherent ability to heal our whole lives.
I believe it is my calling to teach my community & THIS WORLD that: SELF CARE IS SACRED & BOUNDARIES ARE BEAUTIFUL.
I open my heart now to THE WORLD AT LARGE, to help me actualize a vision that I am convinced will revolutionize how the human views themselves in this life forever.
Thank you. I love you.
