January 29, 2019 -  Thoughts on Death Midwifery, Training and Activism

The death midwifery and caregiving I’ve been doing over the last few decades, and more actively this last couple of years, is proving to be some of the most fulfilling work I have ever done in my life. This spring I will be taking the End-of-Life Doula Professional Certificate training through the University of Vermont. These intensive, comprehensive trainings are selling out fast.

June 2, 2017 -  Hi, I’m Willow Kelly

I am a musician, storyteller, and queer eco-political activist witch, wildly in love with this good green earth. I facilitate experiential, transformational magic and music across the U.S., Canada, Germany and Australia, inviting participants into a direct experience of their own magic and powers of transformation.
