Equilibrium, The Community Wellness Center, broadens the scope of resilience, recovery and healing provided by Paradise Stronger.
The Equilibrium community wellness center will be located in the back half of the building in the new location of Paradise Stronger.
Prior to the devastating CampFire that decimated the town of Paradise in November 2018, this building served as a retail space. One of the few buildings that survived, the front half has been converted into a gym space where community members attend fitness classes, work with personal trainers, and focus on physical/mental/emotional health.
The back half of the building, which appears as a very large common room, has been converted by Jess Mercer into a community wellness space named “Equilibrium”. This space will serve the need for overall community emotional, mental, and physical wellbeing for years to come.
Equilibrium will serve as a safe gathering space for the entire Ridge community. Helping people find their own head space and emotional space so they can feel like they have some kind of reprieve; they can have a break from life.
a gathering space, with equity and equality in mind
