"It's emotionally charged, it's DEEP work, it's intensive..."

For millennia, the shamans of the Andes have understood what Western culture ignores: true healing means awakening to a vision of our healed nature and the experience of infinity.

Within an infitie existence, every person who heals themselves heals everyone who came before and everyone who will come after. Within infinity, we can touch the past to heal the future.

"Transform your story, heal your SOUL… "

Once closely guarded, Ancestral Medicine is a set of sacred technologies that transform the way we engage with our history, view the stories of our life,  and can change the way we live and die.
At the Ancestral Medicine Retreat, we bridge these ancient wisdom teachings with cutting-edge neuroscience to teach you how to bring about the life you have dreamed of.

"You will heal the CORE issues rather than addressing the symptoms..."

Reclaim the lost and missing pieces of yourself and return to wholeness and healing. You can reframe your entire family history, reaffirm the sovereignty of your soul and finally harness the fullness of your inner power... with all the blessings of your ancestral lineage.

About Debra Meehl

I believe that nothing happens by accident.  So when I was born into a family where my mother was an only child and I was an only child. I would discover why I was, “to walk alone” as a Native American Seer told me. My DNA confirms that half of my ancestors traveled on the Mayflower and half crossed the Barring Straight from Russia.  The only reason this matters is the confirmation of the dreams and visions I have always had.  It also helps those who need to tell me that I, “don’t look like a Shaman or Native American.”

When I met and married my soul mate – Mark – In 1999 , my life was changed in the blink of an eye.  He was diagnosed a year after we were married with Bipolar Disorder and PTSD.  I went from being a Paramedic trained in Psychological Emergencies to an Ordained Minister trained in Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT).  Several years after, I would be trained as a Clinical Hypnotherapist and many years later as a Shaman.

Leading those willing to Soul retrieval, totem animals and the removal of dark energy (negative entities) was my where the God/Divine of my understanding has always called me.  For years I had no label for what I did.  How I “stood in the gap” for people and called in healing for them or how I could lead them to “find the missing pieces of their soul” that they had lost during trauma or fear.  At the time there was no manual, God/Goddess led me every step of the way. With few teachers I was dependent on tapping into Divine mind and living with “God is my source and supply”.   To say that my third eye is open and that I have Clair-cognition is an understatement, when I am dealing with my clients.

Allowing yourself to be a vessel for others healing is an honor, but not an easy path.  My unwillingness and attachment to the outcomes of situations has made it very difficult at times. There are life skills that can be taught to help with this, many are Zen-like principles that have been taught for thousands of years in the tribes that we no longer belong to.  These are the principles along with Soul level healing that change people’s lives, as they have changed mine.  There is no person or group of “elders” or tribe that can “confirm” your Shamanism no matter what others tell you.  The Spirit calls you to this way of life, and believe me when I tell you.   It is a way of life!



About Kristin Smith

I am a multi-generational intuitive, an ordained priestess, intercultural shaman, certified professional life coach, published author, and avid mythological omnivore. I have extensively studied Dianic Wicca, World Shamanism, Hoodoo, Feri, Druidry, Pillar Seiðr, traditional witchcraft, American folk magic and medicine, and Herbalism. And I am currently working toward a Doctorate of Ministry. All to better walk the path of healing with a true priestess’ heart.

I use my lifetime of studies to help other people take control and change their lives... for the better. It's not always pretty, and it's not always clean, but it IS the single most fulfilling thing I can imagine doing.

I am a lover of culture, religion, ritual, and learning. I believe in bare feet, nature, and magic; in drumming and dancing and bare skin kissed by fire and moonlight. I believe that healing is found in the ecstasy of spirit and achieved through shadow work, soul retrieval, and deep transformation. I believe that life can be shaped to by will and intention. I believe in feeling life deeply and embracing her fully and that is exactly what I help clients achieve by doing the work that needs to be done. Because I also believe in YOU.

Don’t let the sweet smile and doe eyes fool you. I have a sordid love affair with the deep and heavy transformational work that makes other healers cringe. I may love quality tea, snuggly beds, and beautiful words as much  as the next person (okay, probably more), but this work – this bright and beautiful, dark and gritty work – is my passion.

I put my heart and soul - my blood, sweat, and tears (sometimes literally) – into defining a NEW way of healing…something never before seen in the Western world’s model of medicine: a system that embraces and honours the spirit as well as the body, empowering each and every person I work with to step into the fullness of their own divine power as a priest/ess of their own life and their own deep (and deeply personal) spirituality; a new paradigm and a new program for teaching wholistic spiritual healing on a SOUL level.

Ancestral Connection As Natural As Breathing

Imagine actually talking to your ancestors as if they were alive, sitting in front of you. 

Imagine calling on them the way you call a friend, and feeling their support in your healing and everyday life. 

Imagine experiencing a deep personal connection to your ancestral tribe. 

Imagine knowing, understanding, and fully trusting your spiritual lineage. 

Imagine being able to read and understand the ancestral contracts encoded in your DNA. Imagine being able to pinpoint the exact moment in histroy when those contracts formed. Imagine being able to go there and be there in that moment to heal your ancestors - eons before your DNA is ever coded - and change the course of the future by healing the course of your history. 

Imagine healing the hurt, the hunger, the illness, the opression, and the trauma of your entire ancestral line... and healing yourself in the process.

These are the kinds of outcomes you can expect when you learn how to work with the medicine(s) of your ancestors. And thanks to this intense 3-day retreat, you can enjoy them more easily and joyfully than ever before... starting RIGHT NOW.

"As the Phoenix arises from the ashes…so have I."

I was diagnosed with Chronic Myeloid Leukemia in December 2015. And after attending the Shamanic Sisterhood Retreat, I experienced one of the most amazing events of my 64 years on this earth plane. I have succeeded and am now in REMISSION!

The Meehl Foundation Spiritual Retreat Center is a beautiful place.  Magnificent grounds, safe, secure with plenty of sleeping accommodations, rest room facilities, covered patio… even a labyrinth and medicine wheel! Every meal served by an amazing cook! Debra Meehl and her family provided such an amazing event and met all the needs of those who attended.

I departed with a new appreciation for all the wisdom shared.  My journey as a healer will now be enlightened by all the love and knowledge I gained from this retreat.  I may have entered as a stranger, but, I left with a whole new “tribe” of Shamanic Sisters and a greater appreciation for what we can achieve when we step into healing.

Thank you Universe and thank you Debra Meehl!

- Marilyn Dunlap

"The endearing people behind this foundation are saving lives. Literally."

They have helped me into light. I found my soul pieces and am totally feeling the new vibrations of warmth like a hug of divine white light.

If you are feeling called to go, just do it. ALL of the members of the Meehl Foundation Family are truly each unique and so special. And everyone there is very precious. To be in an environment with such people can only be of great value to your life. Just go in with an open heart and an open mind and go all in. It's safe and you are guided on a journey that you won't forget.
What would I recommend about the Meehl Foundation? Everything...
