I’m Kelley Harrell, and I believe we can do better.

I believe we all share the calling to be fit, embodied elders, who upon death become wise, capable Ancestors. To fulfill that calling, we must respond at a soul level.

I’m an author, lifelong intuitive, and deathwalker, living in Fuquay-Varina, North Carolina. Through Soul Intent Arts, I’ve worked with a local and international client base since 2000. I hold a Masters in Religious Studies, and am an ordained interfaith minister. My work is Nature-based, and focuses Soul Tendi

The Handbook of Religions in Ancient Europe by Lisbeth Bredholt Christensen

Excellent resource on pagan Europe, without the modern projections of what paganism was. It's not the easiest read, though well worth the investment. Chapters are broken down by culture/region, and each is written by a specialist on that region. This ...more

This book offers excellent insight into the cultural dynamics of Buryat shamanism post-capitalism. It's not an easy read and is somewhat repetitive in its message, yet it's worth sticking through the full text. The resounding message in this text cas ...more

“Often it isn’t the initiating trauma that creates seemingly insurmountable pain, but the lack of support after.”
S. Kelley Harrell, Gift of the Dreamtime - Reader's Companion

“We don't heal in isolation, but in community.”
S. Kelley Harrell, Gift of the Dreamtime - Reader's Companion

“Miraculously recover or die. That's the extent of our cultural bandwidth for chronic illness.”
S. Kelley Harrell

“Sacred space” is another way of saying “with intention.”
S. Kelley Harrell, Teen Spirit Guide to Modern Shamanism

“Being a medium who can communicate with souls isn't the same as one who can interact with them. It's the difference between listening in on a conversation and changing the subject.”
S. Kelley Harrell, Teen Spirit Guide to Modern Shamanism

“Learning shamanism isn’t just about acquiring techniques in how to do it, but also how to incorporate and deal with the
changes it brings to everyday life.”
S. Kelley Harrell, Teen Spirit Guide to Modern Shamanism

“Despite its prominence now, you don’t stumble onto the path of shamanism. That odd trail blazes itself to you.”
S. Kelley Harrell, Teen Spirit Guide to Modern Shamanism

“A good editor doesn't rewrite words, she rewires synapses.”
