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 animism, 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``

Pledge Support

One of the things I've found in doing soul work with others is value in extended work. Few people benefit from a single session, and most find that after a session they want sustained interaction and opportunity to go into more depth. Through Patreon I've created a way to accomplish that. You can choose the level of sessions, ongoing mentoring or support, healing and reading sessions, as well as access to The Weekly Rune and other runic musings. The services I offer through Patreon are the same as those on my site. The difference is the cost spread over time, with a set interval of sessions. You know when your sessions will be ahead of time, and you don't have to wait to get on my schedule. If you'd like to explore this approach to sustained support, please consider Patreon.
