February 1, 2023 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm EST

Firekeeper’s Daughter brings to light the impact of a traumatic experience, not only on one generation but on subsequent generations after the event. Join Deana Paqua, professor at Western Connecticut State University and teacher and practitioner of Cross-Cultural Energy Medicine, for a discussion and experiential workshop on legacy trauma, how it can affect us — cross culturally — in our everyday lives, and how we can begin to understand and heal its impact on us and our descendants.

Registration is highly recommended for this in-person event at the library. 

Deana Paqua is a teacher and practitioner of cross-cultural energy medicine and contemporary shamanism, a licensed massage therapist and reiki master teacher in practice for more than 22 years. She is also an adjunct professor at Western Connecticut State in Danbury, Connecticut, and serves on the advisory board of the Institute of Holistic Health Studies. Deana has had the humbling honor of studying and working with Indigenous elders and healers from multiple tribes and traditions across the globe, in particular from North and South America, and Tibet.
