The mission of the TEDS foundation is to educate and empower children and their families to become whole by leading a holistic life based on service. 

Mission Statement: 

Brenda Schultz-McCarthy was a top ten tennis professional in the world when she injured her back, which ultimately ended her career. The doctors at the French Open told her that it was all in her head. The head of neurology and orthopedics along with the Dutch Olympic Team felt it was more than psychosomatic, so she ended up having surgery on her back. The back injury still existed even after the surgery, lots of therapy and adjustments in her tennis game. Her husband Sean who also had a career ending back injury while playing college football made it his mission to figure out the limits on every level that was causing Brenda’s pain and discomfort. 

This mission led him to explore all the aspects of stress, both known and unknown. The mental, physical, emotional, spiritual, energetic, dietary and environmental stress was creating limits in her life. These findings and approaches were brought into the tennis camps and programs that Brenda ran so her students could perform optimally. Over time it became more evident that swinging a racquet was not the problem of the students. It was the game of life that was causing their struggles. The families, coaches, teams, clubs and communities had their own dysfunctions influencing the players. These challenges  leaked into the player’s life and game. So dealing with the player evolved into dealing with the player’s whole environment.

Sean, Brenda, recipients of the programs and their advisors knew that the world would benefit from being exposed to this approach to life. They shut down their tennis camps and started a non-profit to offer holistic healing camps to athletes, children, people of service and their families.

Throughout the year the foundation offers holistic healing camps, health & wellness retreats, seminars and virtual coaching.
