Worthiness Academy nurtures personal growth and teaches how to improve self-worth in order to aid addiction recovery and tackle deep-rooted feelings of inadequacy. Self-worth is everything. Knowing your worth is what will empower you to make good choices and become the architect of your own life.


The founder of Worthiness Academy, Debra Laughlin, is a teacher, a healer, and a self-worthiness crusader, with over 30 years shamanic experience. She travels the world, teaching people how to tackle unhealthy patterns, behaviors, and addictions by healing themselves from within.

“Every choice we make has a ripple effect. With knowledge and wisdom, we have the ability to make the right choice and leave addiction in the rearview mirror,” says Debra.


“I started a personal journey 30 years ago. I needed to transform my life. Just totally abandon the living fast, living dangerously, living indulgently. Indulgence was my way I would describe my entire life.


“I found out about ceremony. I found out about ways that people took personal responsibility for their healing and their life. I knew I needed to start taking responsibility which is the exact opposite of indulgence. I began the work on myself.” Debra Laughlin

Debra’s life’s goal is to teach other people struggling with their own battles how to do the same. She believes nature is our most powerful teacher and healer.


The Cherokee legend ‘Two Wolves’ sums up her feelings about how ultimately, it’s you who chooses the life you live.

An old Cherokee is teaching his grandson about life. “A fight is going on inside me,” he said to the boy.


“It’s a terrible fight between two wolves. One is dark he is anger, envy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, and ego. The other is light he is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion, and faith. The same fight is going on inside you and inside every other person, too.”


The grandson thought about it for a minute and then asked his grandfather, “Which wolf will win?” The old Cherokee simply replied, “The one you feed.”

Which wolf will you feed?
