Keri in Doorway

Ready to take a
Deeper Dive?

Think it’s time to start breaking down some thought paradigms?

Inspired by fresh ideas, mindful reflections, and a touch of soulful magic?

You’re in the right place! Whether I’m writing about the soul, the culture at large, midlife (which I am smack dab inside), parenting, or our political landscape, the underlying themes are always about:

Groundedness
embodiment
self-love/power
personal authority
truth-seeking/speaking
breaking down hierarchies

I’m glad you’re here.

I love to hear your thoughts and comments, so please don’t be shy!

You can also find my work scattered about the web. The Urban Howl, Elephant Journal, The Edge Magazine, The Good Men Project, Grown and Flown, Rebelle Society and others.
