Animism is where you stand.

Soul tending is how you stand.

It isn’t another place, culture, or time.
You’re already on the path. Embody it.
Learn to be in direct relationship with it
to create lasting life change.

 

Elder well, die well, ancestor well…

We all share the calling to be fit, embodied elders, who upon the good death become wise, capable Ancestors. To fulfill that calling, we must respond at a soul level. Through actionable animism and soul tending, I teach you to live your calling in support of your quiet dead, healed ancestors, fellow humans, and peaceful coexistence with your land spirits, so that you can leave the planet better than you found it.

Elder Well

So that your descendants grow from your wisdom.

Die Well

So that you leave the planet better than you found it.

Ancestor Well

So that your descendants never elder alone.

Kelley Harrell, M. Div.

I’m an author, lifelong deathwalker and animist, and the founder of Soul Intent Arts on traditional Sissipahaw land in North Carolina. I’m an ordained interfaith minister, and for almost 25 years I’ve taught others to ethically build thriving spiritual paths as fit, embodied elders, who upon death become wise, capable Ancestors. My work is Nature-based, and focuses soul tending through the Elder Futhark runes, animism, ancestral healing, and deathwork. I also help folx who are disabled, chronically ill, or neurodivergent find meaningful spiritual practices rooted in their cosmologies. I’m author of Runic Book of Days, and I host the podcast, What in the Wyrd. I also write The Weekly Rune as a celebration of the Elder Futhark in season.  Full bio.
