Kelley Harrell is an animist, author, deathwalker, and death doula. For the last 25 years, through Soul Intent Arts she’s helped others ethically build thriving spiritual paths. Her work is Nature-based, and centers soul tending through the Elder Futhark runes, animism, ancestral tending, and deathwork. Through everyday animism and the Elder Futhark runes, Kelley teaches others to engage their well Ancestors and unique spiritual paths, in support of their unquiet dead, fellow humans, and spirits of place. Her approach is that 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. Kelley’s published books are Runic Book of Days, Teen Spirit Guide to Modern Shamanism, Real Wyrd, Life Betwixt, and Gift of the Dreamtime, and she hosts the podcast, What in the Wyrd. She also writes The Weekly Rune as a celebration of the Elder Futhark in season. Her book Eldering Well: Tending the Spirited Path of Animism Through Lore and Interrelationship is forthcoming from Inner Traditions in 2024.
