Intersectional Deathwalking

Systemic oppression is a significant factor in how we become stuck in life and death.

Just as we internalize its impact in life as terror, its influence in how we tend our dead instills powerlessness. 
Systemic oppression becomes unconscious, unseen shadow wreaking havoc in death as much as life, leaving the systems that are in play around the circumstances of our unquiet dead needing reconciliation as much as the dead, themselves.
In life or death soul tech exists to help us make such reconciliation, regardless of circumstance. It is a basic right to die well.
The Dark Time is the season that our thoughts are most tuned to our dead, to what needs to be deathwalked in our lives.
We can begin it now.

S. Kelley Harrell, M. Div.

I’m an animist, author, deathwalker and death doula held by Tuscarora, Woccon, and Sissipihaw land. For the last 25+ years, through Soul Intent Arts I’ve helped 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’m author of several books on soul work and runes, and when moved 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.

We don't heal
