Feeding The Spirit One Hot Meal at a Time
An uplifting and inspiring conversation with Debbie Thackrah. At 15, a time when most young people were thinking about junior proms and learner’s permits, Debbie was exploring Transcendental Meditation and the works of Carlos Castaneda.
These early spiritual seekings steadily evolved into a life-long journey that has carried her to an ashram in the Catskills of New York state…the desert canyons of Zion National Park in Utah…and half way across the world, to Himalayan Mountains of India, to study the ways of shamans and honored teachers of the Christian, Native American, and Buddhist traditions.
Debbie’s guiding principles – service to others, compassion, and healing – are the result of her decades of study, and her practical, clear-eyed view of what it means to be human.
Debbie shares her gifts of compassion and kindness through Feeding the Spirit, the non-profit organization she founded in 2011. Feeding the Spirit is a project dedicated to nourishing the bodies, minds, and souls of people in need. They do this by providing a weekly meal for all those in need. This weekly gathering offers all those who attend, not only a hot meal, but a safe place to gather to share the warmth and fellowship of each other. Feeding the Spirit also assists those who are homeless by providing them with temporary shelter at local hotels in our community and providing rent assistance to those individuals at risk of becoming homeless.
Debbie also touches many people through her healing center, Touch of Grace Healing. A cranio-sacral therapist, master-level Reiki practitioner, clairvoyant/intuitive, she gives individual and group healing sessions, leads workshops and discussion groups, meditation groups, and soul sessions.
