Upcoming Events at Turning Point Healing Arts and Education Center

Turning Point Healing Arts and Education Center in Ridgefield will host two special events that begin in September and October.

At “The More You Let Go The Higher You Rise”, facilitators JoAnn Inserra Duncan, MS, RMT of Turning Point Reiki, and Deana Paqua, MA, LMT of Embody the Sacred, will take attendees on a full-day sacred healing retreat to surrender, let go, release and begin again, on September 30, from 10am to 5pm. 

The program is a full day to heal, transform and connect with like-minded people, partake in wonderful exercises and discussions, participate in a healing circle, do automatic writing, receive an attunement and more. Learn skills to let go and release the things in your life that no longer serve you. Register early to hold your space by contacting Duncan at 203-438-3050 or [email protected].

In October, Paqua will host the first of 13 monthly sessions of “Holistic Shamanic Practitioner Program: For Energy Healers, Reiki and Health Care Practitioners”, in which attendees can grow and improve confidence, spiritual gifts and energetic abilities so they can do their soul’s work and be of greater service to clients, the earth and the collective. 

Learn new tools, techniques, rituals and practices from Contemporary Shamanism, Andean Mysticism and ancestral healing and energetic practices. Learn to work with powerful tools to assist your practice, including stones and crystals, rattles and drums, and building an amazing powerful portable altar known as a Mesa, to bring together your eclectic spiritual practices and ancestral traditions.

The program starts October 28, from 10am to 5pm, then every third Saturday of the month, for a total of 13 months. Both in person and online/Zoom options are available. For more information and to apply, visit
