Dedicated to changing our world – one person at a time

Turning Point Healing Retreat Center is an educational facility located in rural southern Virginia. Its mission is to provide a wide range of holistic workshops, classes, and modalities for the physical, mental, and emotional empowerment of all participants. Our programs are for families and individuals impacted by trauma or addictions, those experiencing pain and facing physical challenges, and those who seek a new path for personal growth. The bucolic  (peaceful and rural) environment provides a quiet, safe, and nurturing setting that offers a pathway for change, growth, and personal transformation.
