    Your Turning Point 

    Are you noticing how many people are feeling anxious and are looking for positive change more than ever these days—both personally and on a large scale? Maybe you are one of them. 

    Many of us are tired of the status quo and know in our hearts and souls that there is a much better life available for us. We just don't know how to manifest it despite all of the personal and spiritual growth things we've tried over the years. 

    And, we don't have to just survive, we can THRIVE—be happy, healthy, prosperous, inspired, joyful, grateful, connected, and grounded. Yes, it takes some work, but we can truly "be the change you want to see in the world". 

    Once we start making positive changes, the people around us start to notice a shift. And, that can lead to others becoming inspired and shifting in a positive direction too. Next thing you know, we are at a "tipping point" and things improve for everyone.

    “If you want to bring a fundamental change in people's belief and behavior...you need to create a community around them, where those new beliefs can be practiced and expressed and nurtured...
    That is the paradox of the epidemic: that in order to create one contagious movement, you often have to create many small movements first.” 

    ― Malcolm Gladwell, The Tipping Point: How Little Things Can Make a Big Difference

    That's what we do at Your Turning Point Retreats & Coaching—we help individuals and small groups transform their lives from surviving to thriving with the intention that it spreads with everyone that each client comes into contact with. 

    Your Turning Point is founded and operated by Amy Todisco, a nationally-recognized green living expert, educator, and changemaker. With over 35 years of personal & spiritual growth research, Amy has channeled her personal and professional learning to create a living change lab, housed at her organic farm in Vermont.

    Amy's own journey led her to learn some of her core lessons from the earth itself --and that's the spirit and style in which Your Turning Point operates. Using enduring lessons from the earth and nature, and applying them to human change and triumph.

    Amy's work has positively impacted the lives of empty nesters, those in career and relationship transitions, people seeking a turning point, and even veterans dealing with PTSD and the realities of readjusting to civilian life.

    She's a catalyst for positive change wherever she focuses her attention. Often it's working with individuals and small groups to inspire health and well-being and help make their dreams happen faster and more easily. The bigger the better. She's also very active in her community. She's the Board Chair of a couple of groups (started one of them). And, she's even helped turned a business and a community group on the brink of extinction around to being highly successful.

    Amy was an early visionary pioneer in the field of Green Living. She has amassed a wealth of knowledge in this arena that is incomparable. While many people can talk about the current condition of things, she can see and talk to a future where we all live healthier and more holistically. Her positive, practical and insightful way of gently guiding us in that direction is full of heart and passion. She is a great asset to every project she works on and is enormously generous and collaborative.

    In her own words...

    I was a former NYC private school girl who always wanted to live on a Vermont organic farm. I made that dream come true over 8 years ago.

    Despite my city upbringing, I was living a green life long before it became trendy. Organic food was a staple in our house. I even worked at a couple of health food stores where I became well versed with vitamins, supplements, juice fasting, and more.

    For the past 20+ years, I've advised, inspired, and encouraged clients to adopt a Green Living plan for their lives—eat organic whole foods; replace toxic cleaning, body care, and household products with safer, truly natural ones; become energy and water efficient; and how to introduce children to this way of life too. 

    In addition to my passion for green living, I've also been on a spiritual and personal growth path beginning with the very popular 1970's personal growth program called est, where I realized my life purpose of making a difference in other people's lives. I became a certified life coach and massage/energy healer. I've been gardening organically for most of my adult life and have lived on an organic farm in Vermont for the past almost 7 years.

    I've taken all of my experiences over the years and distilled them into organic farm based, healing and wellness retreats for people seeking a profound shift in their lives. Sharing all of this is my passion!
