Debra Debow considers herself as "A Soul Detective". Debra has been called a Shaman Woman. She helps audience members reflect on their lives and to rediscover their strengths.

Debra has embraced challenge, multiple barriers and re-invented her life several times. In adulthood, she suffered brain damage and multiple psychiatric disorders. In mid-life, she surrendered a home due to fire, left jobs because of illness, suffered through addictions, psyche wards, a miscarriage, the deaths of a beloved husband and a beautiful baby. Many doors were closed to her.

This did not stop her from going on to become an award-winning teacher, an accomplished artist, a publisher, a writer, a healer, a workshop keynote leader for change and an internationally acclaimed ceremonialist. Adversity and multiple traumatic events did not stop her from going on to earn three degrees and to become an independent scholar. She has spoken at peace conferences around the world. Debra is a Member of the Sufi Order, a Canadian Arts Ambassador (CAA) appointed by the House of Commons of Canada, a Representative for Global Network for Peace, a Pipe Carrier and a former Keeper of the Fung Loy Gok Shrine, a temple to Taoism.

Debra's story is one of power, passion and courage with a clear positive message about the profound and resilient nature of the human spirit. Her presentations help audience members change their limiting core beliefs and to make positive decisions based on commitment to values, creativity, humour and cross-cultural truths for the growth of their souls.

Her powerful and loving presence puts audiences at ease and opens their minds to infinite possibilities. Her passionate and humorous, bordering on hilarious, keynote presentations and her workshops entertain, inspire, offer concrete solutions on how to make the "right responses" in life and to animate the human spirit. From laughter to introspective silence, Debra takes audiences on a power-filled journey of self and soul focusing on life-affirming action, universal teachings for wellness, the power of thought and a search for meaning in the face of adversity and our fast-paced society. With riveting stories and thought-provoking audience participation, Debra invites audiences to summon powerful tools for embracing life on life's terms.

Debra has a Masters Degree in Education, a Bachelors Degree in Education, a Bachelors Degree in Arts and she also holds several diplomas. She is an exhibiting artist, a jewelry designer, is a published poet and frequent contributor to learned magazines and journals. Her acclaimed periodical Goddesszing is circulates in nine countries. She has participated in Archeological digs and she an expert in ancient women's history, having devoted over 25 years in the study.
