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

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.

Why Your Unfinished or Lost Work Matters

Have you ever worked on a piece of writing, spreadsheet, or email, only to lose it in a badly-timed computer crash? Have you ever created a piece of art that you never showed to anyone? Have you ever begun projects...

The Privilege of Saying We “Don’t Need Anybody.”

Please Don’t Need Me “I need to see you!” the text from a friend read. I almost dropped my phone, like I’d burned my hand. I get triggered when people say they need me. I twitch when someone gets too...

Our Wounds are Goldmines

Physical wounds While biking with my husband last summer, I hit a pothole on a downhill and fell, head-over-handlebars, onto the pavement. The bike landed on my back. Yes, I was wearing a helmet. And, somehow, in mid-air, I knew...

My Path Toward Embodiment and Wholeness

Instead of collecting ideas, I started collecting lost pieces of myself. I am a master collector. I love to put puzzles together by sorting through the colors, shapes, and sizes and finding just the right place for everything. The big...
