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.

In this environment, Self-Care is its own form of Activism

A few years ago, when I first considered whether to describe myself as an activist, I worried that to do so would make me a fraud. I wholeheartedly support the Black Lives Matter and Women’s Marches. I think the March...

This is Progress Too

  Following the news about the nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court and the hearings with Dr. Blasey Ford has exhausted me. I know it has exhausted many of us. It has hurt my heart and crushed...

How to be The Light as the World Grows Increasingly Dark

Donald Trump’s election and presidency has ushered in everything he promised it would. I’m not talking about lower taxes, or better health care for everyone, or an impregnable border wall. I’m talking about an increase in hate crimes; a coarsened,...
