iPagan is released, and Teen Spirit Guide to Modern Shamanism is re-released!
Yay! Not only have I received the release date for my new book, Teen Spirit Guide to Modern Shamanism – A Beginner’s Map Charting an Ancient Path, I also have its beautiful cover! 30 May 2014, it will be available from Soul Rocks Book!
Teen Spirit Guide to Modern Shamanism is a light-hearted and informative handbook introducing an ancient spiritual practice to today’s young adults and beginning seekers. Modern shaman and author, S. Kelley Harrell gives insight into growing from an intuitive youth into a mature facilitator of healing for others, covering the history and roles of the shaman, and their relevance in our shifting times. Complete with instructions on ecstatic journeying, this guide also presents how to incorporate shamanic insights into daily life, and how to talk with others about the modern shamanic path.
“Kelley Harrell provides you with a wealth of tools to assist you in cultivating your own shamanic path. This is an important book to help readers create a life filled with depth and meaning. Great guide!” ~ Sandra Ingerman MA, Soul Retrieval and Shamanic Journeying: A Beginner Guide.
“Teen Spirit Guide to Modern Shamanism” is fuel for both the head and the heart, offering young spiritual seekers grounded advice and experiential practices for exploring the path of modern shamanism. ~ Hillary S. Webb, PhD, Exploring Shamanism, Traveling Between the Worlds: Conversations with Contemporary Shamans, and Yanantin and Masintin in the Andean World: Complementary Dualism in Modern Peru
“Harrell’s book presents her discoveries of how to approach our ancient potentials and provides guidance for those who find the shamanic path opening for them. While the neophyte shaman often walks a solitary path into the world of the spirits, the protection of the wisdom of our elders has always been essential guidance. Knowledge and experience from the wounded healers of the past can help those who walk the path today. Kelley’s book provides guidance and wisdom to help structure the modern encounter with these ancient spiritual healing principles.” ~ Dr. Michael Winkelman, M.P.H., Ph.D., Shamanism A Biopsychosocial Paradigm of Consciousness and Healing
S. Kelley Harrell is a modern shaman and author in North Carolina. A lifelong intuitive, she has been on a shamanic path since 1988, and since 2000 has served her local community and an international client base through Soul Intent Arts. soulintentarts.com.

Of Gift of the Dreamtime:
In this fantastical memoir, Kelley Harrell chronicles a modern shamanic journey from pain to healing, and accepting a calling to work as a soul healer of others.
Groundbreaking at the time of its first publication in 2004, no other modern shamanic work shared an experience of soul healing told from within the shamanic narrative, bringing relatable and credible insight to contemporary soul healing.
Through that rare glimpse into her experiences traversing the spirit world, Harrell’s story becomes the reader’s adventure.
Not always easy to read, there are unflinching passages examining hurtful childhood memories, confrontations with overzealous spirit guides, and challenging personal obstacles she must overcome in order to heal.
The book combines Harrell’s personal journey with instructions for creating similar soul journeys to help the injured child in all of us look at the hurt, understand it in a spiritual context, and forgive both ourselves and others.
