The Untamed Life
We are conditioned to tame our desires, to sacrifice our needs, to still the inner voice of longing and wisdom,
all for the sake of fitting in, conforming, not bothering anyone.
This taming leaves us unfulfilled, unhappy, and unsettled—voice-less, power-less, passion-less.
I know; I spent too many years silencing my voice, abdicating my power, quelling my passion.
Now, I am committed to living up to the meaning of my birth name: Messenger Warrior Creator.
Through speaking, shamanic coaching, and writing,
I guide other tamed souls to throw off the shackles of quietly fitting in
and lead an un-tamed life of meaning and passion.
As a professional speaker, Kelly conducts workshops, conference breakout sessions, and keynote addresses. You’ll also find her doing webinars, online interviews, and teleclasses. Her main topics are about fear (“Get the Fear Out of Here” — facing it, challenging it and releasing it) and power (“Unleash the Animal Within” — what power really is, how to harness it, how to express it).
Kelly uses shamanic coaching and consulting to guide individuals and organizations in releasing fear and tapping into their soulpower. For individuals, this means identifying and expressing your unique gifts, lessons, and purpose. For organizations, this means connecting with the soul of your business and coaching your people to work as a high-performing team.
Once a visual artist (painter, sculptor, and filmmaker), Kelly now channels her creativity through her voice—specifically through writing and speaking. Her books, articles, videos and digital programs focus on becoming more human and more fully your Self by connecting with nature, desire, animal archetypes, and your own innate wisdom.

What Clients Say
“Kelly helped me discover my own spirit animal and delve into what that meant for me, both personally and in relation to my business. It was an enlightening experience that I’d recommend to anyone who is open to getting clearer about their business in a slightly unconventional way!”Terri Zwierzynski, Solo-E.com
“I really enjoyed discovering and learning from my spirit animal. I had never broached into this realm of thought before and it was very exciting to do so with Kelly. She explained it well and offered lots of support. I wondered if I really would do it, the support and tools Kelly offered helped a lot.”Becky Sanchez, Enjoy Life
“One of the best things I ever did for myself as a business owner was to go to Kelly Eckert for coaching. Kelly helped me to see that my energy and enthusiasm are not liabilities, but assets. And if some prospects have problems dealing with that, then I probably can’t help them anyway.”Mary Ecsedy, Circuit Riders LLC
“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 connecting with a soul that wants only the highest and best for me. Being able to interact with like-minded women was an extra bonus.”Beth Caldwell, Beth Caldwell Publicity and Pittsburgh Professional Women
“I got so much out of Kelly’s Branding with Spirit Animals! Taking Branding with Spirit Animals had me identify what was missing and create the additional necessary pieces needed. And, the proof is in pudding. Almost immediately following the class, my pipeline began to fill. Thank you Kelly!!”Suzanne Ferguson, SuzanneFerguson.com
