Soul Intent Arts brings ancient healing and modern shamanism, where you stand. For those who haven’t been raised in a shamanic tradition–which is most people in the west–shamanism is a broken path. The New Age has left us convinced the only way to return to their ancient lineages of shamanism is through the exploitation of other cultures.

No.  It’s wrong to approach it that way, and only perpetuates ancestral wounds and systemic injustice.

Shamanism is where you stand, and I teach you how to ethically build your own thriving spiritual path, while honoring that of others. Located in North Carolina, my work is Nature-based and animistic. I teach others to find their unique spiritual paths in support of their ancestral and spiritual truths, connect to the spirits of the land they live on, and emphasize social justice through sacred activism.

I offer private sessions, mentorship, a two-year modern shamanism intensive, The Spirited Path, as well as ongoing support to help you become a fit Ancestor. Through rooting into relationship with your Ancestors and Nature Allies, we create your personal experience of animism, and if called, initiate into your experience of shamanism.




In-Person and Live Online Sessions are available.

Kelley Harrell, M. Div.

A lifelong intuitive and deathwalker, I’ve worked with a local and international client base since 2000. I hold a Masters in Religious Studies, and I am an ordained interfaith minister. My work is Nature-based, and is focused through animism, Seiðr, Druidry, ancestral healing, and deathwork. I work closely with the Elder Futhark runes and divine Nature Spirits of eastern North Carolina.  Assisted by loblollies, cypress, Bermuda grass, and sidewalks, my spiritual practice is Soul Intent Arts.  I advocate social justice through sacred activism, and am vigorously involved with the worlds in and around me.
