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:

embodiment

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.

Opening to Creativity

If there's one thing I've learned through the "skin" of a writer, it's how to give into and trust the creative process and its ebbs and flows. Creativity is not something that can be controlled or directed. It can't be...
