Walking the Spirited Path

Self-paced Studies

Intro to Soul Tending

This class presents an ethical, grounded examination of soul care, so that you can make informed choices around soul healing and your further education within it. “Introduction to Soul Tending” is a self-paced study combining the history of soul healing with philosophical, psychological, and cultural perspectives, the politics of the broken path, perspectives on traditional shamanism, and where to go next to learn more. 

Ritual, Ceremony, and Cosmology

A six-week experiential course in distinguishing between ritual and ceremony, learning the significance of cosmology in animistic worldview, how to create rituals and ceremonies, and how to create sacred space for the purpose of ecstatic trance and sacred activism. This course includes the essential to effective ecstatic trance. 


Working with Nature Spirits

A lightly experiential 8-week class offering insight into working with Nature Spirits for direct relationship, community healing, and activism, the difference between traditional totemism and how modern animists work with Nature Allies, and the different types of Nature Allies.



Intro to Animism

A seven-week experiential course exploring concepts of animism, why animism fell out of favor, what replaced it, and why returning to it is sacred activism. Through this course, access the Earth-soul strata to establish sacred contact with Nature, to learn components of social activism through animism, and how to apply what transpires in the Middle layer in everyday life. 

I teach embodied soul tending through Nature to create lasting change.

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 soul tending, I teach you to find your unique spiritual path 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 by living your calling.

This is walking The Spirited path.

My classes teach you to walk the Spirited Path with skill, wisdom, and integrity. By learning spiritual responsibility, energy hygiene, Nature connection, runelore, Ancestor tending, and deathwalking, you come into direct relationship with All Things, and show up for your community.

We don't heal

In isolation, but in community
