Allow me to introduce you to the two figures above. First is my soul, named Serene Voyager, or Sëri (rhymes with Keri) for short. With her is a wolf named Endless Curiosity, whose main job as matchmaker was to bring my soul and I together for the affair of our lifetime.
These are two of the colorful characters of my upcoming memoir, Skin by Skin: A Soulful Affair. Of course, the third character in my book is me—though I admit I am far more reluctant, hesitant, and stubborn than they are. I’m lucky to have them.
Read the preface of Skin by Skin: A Soulful Affair, entitled Before the Beginning.
Everything I write—whether about politics, family, yoga, or spirituality—begins with an initial nudge (poke, pat, shove) from my soul, after which Endless Curiosity takes the idea and noodles with it for a while. In a world divided, my soul, my Endless Curiosity, and I seek unity, compassion, and connection. I hope you will join us.

Only patriarchy would make the case that something that is imperfect and incomplete should be rejected. Only patriarchy would suggest that feeling overwhelmed, frightened and receiving less-than-perfect results make the case for pulling back from the world.Full story

"My Session with Keri was absolutely transformative! She helped me journey to the root cause of my fear anxiety and removed the obstacle. This treatment was complete love-based for lack of a better description. I left her office feeling completely different and I am actually weeks later still integrating the experience and seeing the benefits in ..."
"My massage session with Keri was more than I expected. With a mixture of her nurturing touch and essential oils I was quickly transformed into a wonderfully relaxed and calm state. However, like many, I have painful obstacles in my life to get through and what started as a relaxing massage ended in a supportive healing session. Keri’s guidance a..."

- Sharon, Eagan
" I took Yoga from Keri and it was wonderful! She sets a wonderful space. Peaceful, gentle, loving, safe, compassionate and caring. I was taught how to do a pose so as not to harm myself and how to get the best benefit. When we were done with an hour I thought I had been on a day retreat. In my opinion, she is an excellent teacher, very knowledg..."

"The Positive Activism Program was so well received by the community. [Keri] has married two subjects (spirituality and activism) that most of us think would not be fitting partners and made them cooperative components that can change the world. Beautiful work. ~Jan and Pete Girard, Conscious Living Expo Workshop Coordinators at Lake Harriet S..."
