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. Her bestselling memoir, “Gift of the Dreamtime: Awakening to the Divinity of Trauma” chronicles her pivotal step into the role of shaman. She holds a Masters in Religious Studies, is a Reiki Master and ordained interfaith minister. She honors the paths of Seiðr and Druidry, and works closely with the Nature Spirits of her native region. 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.


"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``
