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

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.

Don’t Let this Go: A Call to Change through Action

WISE ADVICE A common piece of advice for discipling children (or training a new puppy) is something like: “Don’t reward bad behavior with your attention. Ignore it. When the offending party sees that they are not getting a rise out...

Confessions of a Deep Thinker

Ever since I can remember, I’ve loved to think. As a child, when all the other kids went outside to play in sandboxes or on swing sets, I wanted to stay inside—I don’t mean inside the house, necessarily, but inside...

Healing, One Piece at a Time

A Calming Ritual   As a child, I often sat at a cardboard table across from my mom and put together jigsaw puzzles. She scanned the pieces with her eyes, picked one up and clicked it right into place. I...

Abortion Bans are not a Movement Against Abortion, they are a Movement Against Women.

If you’ve lost count, we are now up to 8 states that have passed anti-abortion bills: Alabama, Georgia, Missouri, Ohio, Utah, Kentucky, Mississippi, Arkansas. Just. Like. That. Make no mistake: this is NOT just a movement against abortion—that’s just the...

Did Your Soul Say Yes to Living This Human Life?

Photo Credit: Camryn Rae (inworld)   It is human nature to ponder what happens to our souls when we die. Whether we believe in a single and eternal afterlife, that we go through multiple reincarnations until we “get it right,”...
