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:

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.

We are Made of “Starstuff”

“The atoms of our bodies are traceable to stars that manufactured them in their cores and exploded these enriched ingredients across our galaxy, billions of years ago. For this reason, we are biologically connected to every other living thing in...

The Sorting Stage of Transformation: “Heroes” Need Not Apply

True transformation is not an event. Transformation is a process in which we completely unravel ourselves and then slowly, mindfully, put ourselves back together in a healthier way. The previous stage was about the unraveling. This next stage is about...
