What Others are Saying

“Kelly makes it easy to understand how we can get to know ourselves better and act with confidence and purpose in our personal and professional lives….

“I’ve used her guided meditations for help during sticking points in life, when I’m just not sure which way I want to go or how I want to move forward. Once identifying my Spirit Animal(s), her well-crafted descriptions of the Spirit Animals [in her book] provide clear information on their gifts and how to understand them.”

“Kelly Eckert’s book is a concise, clear guide to getting to know and understand your spirit animals. She has really brought together the information on understanding how animals work in your life, and getting to know them intimately. The mystical nature of animal totems and spirits is such an important element of spiritual practice, and Kelly has truly addressed this with skill, research, and experience.”
“The effect that just the first class had on me was profound and magical. I was deeply affected by the knowledge of having a spiritual connection with a soul that wants only the highest and best for me. Being able to interact with like-minded women was an extra bonus.”
