For $5 a month you can support The Weekly Rune.
What's The Weekly Rune? It's a runecast I've written as part of my blog, Intentional Insights, since June of 2012, featuring the half-month rune, which is set by the traditionally accepted runic calendar, and governs for a tad over two weeks. It also includes the intuitive stave, which I draw to bring the focus of the half-month rune into sharper focus for the present week, and a rune indicating the planet's current needs.
Who am I? I'm Kelley, lifelong intuitive and writer. I write shamanic memoir, spiritual nonfiction, and new adult magical realism. My books Gift of the Dreamtime and Teen Spirit Guide to Modern Shamanism are bestsellers---thank you! My new book, Runic Book of Days, is due out in 2018, from Inner Traditions. Apart from writing, I enjoy creating runic art and ritual items, and working with others as a facilitator of spiritual wellbeing and finding meaning in life.
I've maintained my blog "Intentional Insights" since 2004 (thank you, again!), including series such as The Weekly Rune, and Betwixt, and reader Q&A on modern animism and shamanism. Ongoing, I publish other free content to venues like PaganSquare, Candid Slice, Thrive, and Feminism and Religion. A year into its creation, The Weekly Rune was picked up by Huffington Post, and has become a staple among Rune enthusiasts. It is also syndicated by Crystal Wind and John Hunt Books.
I started working with the Runes when I was 19. They have stayed with me as a spiritual and meditative practice, and I also use them to do divinatory readings for others. Influences in my work are the Germanic Runes, Irish Shamanism, animism, Seidr, and Druidry.
Yes, I am a modern shaman, forged in the divine Nature Spirits of eastern North Carolina. I have worked with a local and international client-base through Soul Intent Arts, since 2000. In 2013, I created an intentional community bringing support and mentoring to budding intuitives experiencing spiritual crisis called Tribe of the Modern Mystic. I also created The Spirited Path, a two-year intensive in modern shamanism.
My current projects include Decoding the Body Awake, a shamanic perspective on chronic health conditions, The Runic Book of Days, and my first novel, The Last Snow Moon.
In the spirit of Gebo's gift for a gift, supporting me through Patreon is a mutually beneficial relationship. By working with me monthly through Patreon, we will form a more sustaining relationship to support:
- furthering Runelore in a modern context
- further modern shamanism and animism in a relatable context
- posting valuable free pagan and earth-honoring content to the blogosphere
Depending on the pledge amount, rewards include:
- first and full access to The Weekly Rune (all pledges receive this reward)
- sustained Rune and/or soul work with me
- sustained mentoring
- a Birth Rune Snapshot
- Sabbat Runecasts

The services I provide through Patreon function the same as those offered through Soul Intent Arts. The difference is Patreon services provide sustained interaction with the cost spread over time. Should you want an individual service beyond Patreon, contact me.
