About Willow Kelly

Musician, minister, seeker of wild places, death midwife, shadow-stalker, lover of the Greenbloods and the Wyrd, I am a music-making, mischief-conspiring priestess of transformation and have been teaching magic internationally since the mid-90’s. I am a skeptic and a mystic, seeking a glimmer of understanding into this ocean of ineffable wonder that I inadequately call Spirit. I experience and priestess transformation through the exploration and integration of shadows, sprinkling my work generously with the ecstatic vibrations of music, energy, play, movement, theatre, devotion, and sound, thriving on collaborative community building, art and ecstatic magic.  I teach and facilitate a variety of classes, intensives, restoratives, rituals, rites of passage, and workshops that hold the common threads of authenticity, collaboration, responsibility and transformation. My extensive training in the Reclaiming Tradition of Witchcraft, the Dances of Universal Peace, the Whirling Dervishes of the Mevlevi Order of America, Middle Eastern drumming techniques for trance and energy-raising, and other mystical traditions informs my practices and teaching styles.

My familiar animals are bats.  I rescue and adore them. I also encourage people to learn more about them, because bats need our help. Learn more about bats and bat rescue on my secret page! (If you need a hint, feel free to message me – and have fun!)
