I'm Kelley Harrell

and I believe we can do better

 I believe…

we all share the calling to be fit, embodied elders, who upon death become wise, capable Ancestors. To fulfill that calling, we must respond at a soul level. Through actionable animism, I teach others to find their unique spiritual paths in support of their quiet dead, healed ancestors, fellow humans, and peaceful coexistence with the spirits of the land they live on.

I’m an author, lifelong deathwalker and animist, living in Fuquay-Varina, North Carolina.  Through Soul Intent Arts, I’ve worked with a local and international client base since 2000. I hold a Masters in Religious Studies, and am an ordained interfaith minister. My work is Nature-based, and focuses soul tending through actionable animism, ancestral healing, and deathwork. I work closely with the Elder Futhark runes, my Ancestors, and divine Nature Spirits of eastern North Carolina.  Assisted by loblollies, Bermuda grass, sidewalks, and my Ancestors, my work emphasizes embodied wellbeing and sacred activism through Nature. I remain vigorously involved with the worlds in and around me.

We don't heal

In isolation, but in community
