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 and the Elder Futhark runes, 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, and the founder of Soul Intent Arts in North Carolina. I’m an ordained interfaith minister, and I teach others to ethically build a thriving spiritual path 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.

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.

We don't heal

In isolation, but in community
