Real Wyrd - A Modern Shaman's Roots in the Middle World by S. Kelley Harrell

[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”2/3″][vc_column_text]Yes, you know–that one.

Without contest, the original post from 2007 on my experience at Hotel Phillips and deathwalking those spirits is the most-visited post on Intentional Insights. I don’t know why, exactly. It’s not the most frightening one, and I can’t identify anything particularly outstanding about it, other than it’s a great account of deathwalking, and we have a general cultural fascination with the paranormal. Nonetheless, it’s the most visited post.

If you’re not familiar with deathwalking, it’s a shamanic approach to releasing unquiet dead. I teach classes in it, and it’s a big focus of my shamanic work. Learn more about deathwalking:

In 2003 I traveled with a few work associates to Kansas City, MO, where we settled into Hotel Phillips. The place is gorgeous, and if you have a chance to visit it, do. It’s stunning, really. And as I left it, pretty quiet… now. The original post, Hotel Phillips and Murderous Insomnia, is creepy enough all its own. In the next installment of this series, I’ll tell you how it got even creepier, 11 years later.
