Erika Retiz, also known as Tefa Vento, is a Mexican actress, communication expert, and holistic therapist. She began her spiritual practice at the age of 15 by attending daily Kundalini Yoga classes alongside her theatre education. At the age of 18, Erika decided to study at the Mexican College of Massage and Holistic Nursing in Mexico City while continuing her career as a theatre actress. It was during this time that she started exploring other therapeutic disciplines such as Ayurveda, aromatherapy, massage, reiki, and meditation.
Her training in acting allowed her to incorporate movement and body expression into her therapeutic practices. She also received training in anatomy and first aid, becoming certified in Mexico and Canada. During her acting career, Erika experienced two accidents that led her to undergo surgeries on her ankle and knee at different times, leaving her unable to walk for extended periods of time. It was during these processes that Erika delved into her own physical, emotional, and spiritual rehabilitation, and her complete mobility is a living testament to her medicine and constant training.
She started her career as an online communication expert and graduated in 2019, as well as ventured into directing and producing theatre. She also pursued courses in coaching and NLP. During her journey, Erika became a part of many women's circles, sweat lodges, and ceremonies, where she fell in love with the medicine imparted from the wisdom of her Mexican cultural roots. Now, as a facilitator and promoter of ancestral medicine, she has found opportunities to help people from diverse cultures and ages through the use of cacao and medicinal chanting.
Currently residing in Vancouver, Canada, Erika has had the opportunity to facilitate healing for people of various cultural backgrounds and ages. She is always grateful for the chance to expand her knowledge in her practice and takes great pride in her Mexican heritage as she shares the healing techniques of her culture. Erika is a true example of resilience and dedication to her craft, and she continues to inspire others with her passion for holistic healing and cultural wisdom.
She believes in the power of integrating mind, body, and spirit in the pursuit of overall wellness, and she is committed to helping others on their healing journey. Her mission is to create a positive impact in the world through her holistic therapies and teachings, leaving a legacy of healing and empowerment wherever she goes.
