HI, I’M KELLY.
EVOLUTIONARY ACTIVIST, MODERN MYSTIC, AND ENERGY HEALER
MY JOURNEY is one of love and (r)evolution. I’ve walked down many paths — as a community organizer for resettled refugees and immigrants, as a nonprofit advocate for college access and poverty alleviation, a sustainability director in the corporate world, and more recently a spiritual seeker in the inner world. Throughout the last 10 years, my life’s work enabled me to witness the experience of our human family in 20+ countries and explore the deepest questions about what it means to be fully alive.
MY PURPOSE AND PASSION is to support our ever-evolving Souls in remembering who we actually are and re-membering with one another. For me, re-membering isn’t just about spirituality – it’s about systems thinking and social justice. My work is built on the knowingness that we’re here to create true freedom for ourselves and actualize it for others. This isn’t fluffy at all — it’s the realest, most radical, most revolutionary possibility there is. And this is what I’ve been up to for as long as I can remember. —>
I BELIEVE THAT
we are all capable of healing, that we all have space for more Love in our hearts, and that we can literally love one another to liberation. I believe that deep prayer and radical action is how we get there. I believe that what we have survived can help us thrive, and that our pain shows us who we actually are and what we actually want. I believe in holistic healing: sometimes we need tough-love and straight-shooting, and sometimes we need some bath-tubbing and wild meadow-frolicking. It’s all part of it. I believe that when we allow ourselves to heal, we realize that we really do we have all the wisdom we need to bring Heaven to Earth — to break free from the chains of the -isms and schisms that have been manufactured to make us feel separate and unsafe. At our very core, I believe we all know what peace and belongingness should feel like. This isn’t a dream — it’s the invitation. And it truly is addressed to you.
MY APPROACH IS
None of this is real unless I am. I embody my own healing journey and offer what I know in hopes that it activates the wisdom that’s available within you.
I like to find the line between the daily grind and the Divine. I aim to make spiritual and energetic frameworks more practical, approachable, and useful so busy people can actually apply them. I also create free content, provide scholarships, and develop affordable offerings so that everyone can actualize the healing they so deserve.
Personal and collective healing are dependent on one another, and I believe that talking about both accelerates our empathy and our evolution. None of us are free until we all are.
My true gift is my synthesizing ability. I’m a full-on bookworm — I love to sit for hours with big texts and big ideas and boil them down to their essence. My work is like Spark Notes for your Spirit.
As a lifelong existentialist, I learned the hard way that intellect only gets us so far. Now, I like to get into where the real results happen: the body and the Spirit. I’m willing to go pretty “far out” — and I get excited if you are too.
MANY OF MY TEACHINGS
and offerings have been guided by feminist, LGBTQIA, post-colonial, POC, and activist thinkers, writers, and teachers. My undergraduate studies in Peace and Conflict and my graduate studies in Sustainability are the bedrock for my spiritual philosophies. I’ve got a Rise Up + Rally Down approach to spirituality. By all means, climb the mountain. Ask the questions. Find the guru (spoiler alert: it’s you). Receive the revelations. And then come down that mountain with a rally call — for peace, for justice for liberation. This is what it means to do the spiritual work. This is what it is to bring Heaven to Earth.
I WANT YOU TO KNOW THAT
I’M IN THIS JUST AS MUCH AS YOU ARE.
My deep exploration, rejection, and reconciliation of my Christian roots led me to the threshold of the mysticism behind all spirituality. It’s from within this mystery that I pray, heal, reflect, and teach. It is through this mystery that I find connection and reverence for all religions and interpretations of the Divine — the many ways in which our human family have tried to know the unknowable.
I like to talk about the hard stuff — I roll up my sleeves, I’m real, I ask good questions, I make mistakes, and I strive to stay accountable. And, thanks to my healing journey, I now know to make time for the easy stuff — I practice serious self care, I rest a lot, I integrate, and I reflect. I’m a 4 on the Enneagram, which means I often live in the dark places so that I can better see the light.
I look for the meaning.
I search for the more.
I’ll make you laugh.
And I’ll probably cry before you do.
The thing is, I love you. I love the Divinity in you, because it still enchants me every time that there really is Divinity in it all. That there’s still Divinity in me. That we truly do belong to one another.
are derived from my own life experience of healing my mental and physical health issues in ways I never thought were possible. As a certified Vinyasa Yoga Instructor and Usui Reiki Master, I’ve learned how to teach and integrate prayer, mindfulness, meditation, breathwork, yoga, energy healing, crystal therapy, aromatherapy, plant medicine, and intentional living practices with hundreds of beautiful people around the world. Their results have taught me the two things: nature is our greatest healer and it is truly in our nature to heal.
I am a white, European-descended, pansexual, cis-gendered, middle-class woman born on occupied Turtle Island or what we now call the United States of America. I grew up on the land of the Nanticoke Lenni-Lenape People now called New Jersey. My ancestors are from Ireland and Germany. I currently live in Central America, land of the Maya, with my Salvadoran partner. I strive to make my work historically and structurally rooted, because the Truth of our past and present realities is what will set us free.
