Gift of the Dreamtime: Awakening to the Divinity of Trauma by S. Kelley Harrell
"In this book, that hunger and fear that nibbled and clawed at you and me for years is explained in poetic, experiential detail. Harrell guides us into our own souls, turning the “whys” into wise."
—Bridgett Walther, author of Conquer the Cosmos
"Harrell draws you into the dreamtime as an expert novelist draws you into a great novel and shares with you her experiences and knowledge of the world beyond the veil from the time she was very young."
With a foreward by shaman Christina Pratt, in the revised second edition of this fantastical memoir, Kelley Harrell chronicles a modern shamanic journey from pain, to healing and accepting a calling to work as a soul healer of others. Groundbreaking at the time of its first publication in 2004, still no other modern shamanic work shares an experience of soul healing told from within the shamanic narrative, bringing relatable and credible insight to contemporary soul healing. Through that rare glimpse into her experiences traversing the spirit world, Harrell’s story becomes the reader’s adventure. Not always easy to read, there are unflinching passages examining hurtful childhood memories, confrontations with overzealous spirit guides, and challenging personal obstacles she must overcome in order to heal.
Kelley Harrell is an author and neoshaman in North Carolina. Her shamanic practice is Soul Intent Arts. She writes for The Huffington Post, and since 2004 has written the syndicated column, "Intentional Insights: Q&A from Within," addressing reader inquiries on animism, shamanism, and the everyday paranormal.
A lifelong intuitive, since 1998, Kelley has addressed the spiritual needs of her local and international community. Through her shamanic practice she has established The Tribe of the Modern Mystic, to support and mentor intuitives experiencing trauma as they grow into powerful abilities, and to provide shamanic community support for personal spiritual development. Her practice comprises teaching classes, in-person and distance Mystery School, mentoring, healing, and ceremonial artistry in the community. Her website is www.kelleyharrell.com.
