Soul Intent Arts brings ancient healing into modern lives. A native to North Carolina, since 2000 I have served my local community and an international client base. 


Through soul healing, mentoring, community-building, Reiki, spiritual counsel, and communion with Nature Allies, I foster personal growth.


My commitment to wellness includes facilitating emotional, mental, physical and spiritual balance. I help you manifest yourself as you truly want to be.

Kelley Harrell, M. Div.

Kelley is a bestselling author and modern shaman living in North Carolina. A lifelong intuitive, she has worked with a local and international client base as a shaman since 2000. She holds a Masters in Religious Studies, is a Reiki Master, and an ordained interfaith minister. She honors the paths of Seiðr and Druidry, and works closely with the Elder Futhark Runes and divine Nature Spirits of eastern North Carolina. Her shamanic practice is Soul Intent Arts, and she is vigorously involved with the worlds in and around her.

In 2013, Kelley had the honor of being named a Wisdom Keeper by Shaman Portal. A major focus of her work is helping those in spiritual emergence incorporate animistic life through private sessions and mentorship, and to create community for those between worlds in The Tribe of the Modern Mystic. She also leads a Two-Year Intensive in Modern Shamanism, fostering others to create unique paths of shamanism, and ground the personal teaching of everyday life with sustainable passion and wisdom.


"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``

For the week of 1 March 2015
