Kelly Arora has been a spiritual director/companion for over 20 years. Identifying as spiritually fluid, Kelly is deeply informed by decades of engagement within Christian, Buddhist and Hindu traditions. For the past 10 years, she has focused on Core Shamanic practices. She offers shamanic Reiki healing and guidance sessions to connect people with their spirit allies, access the wisdom of the Akashic Records, facilitate deeper spiritual healing, and experience mind-body-spirit integration. With a doctoral degree in Religious and Theological Studies, Kelly teaches spiritual care at the Iliff School of Theology in Denver and in the Interprofessional Graduate Certificate and Master of Science programs in Palliative Care at the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus. She frequently presents, leads workshops, and writes about provider self-awareness, chronic illness and spirituality, and interspiritual dialogue skills. In 2020, she published Spirituality and Meaning Making in Chronic Illness, a book for care providers and people living with chronic health conditions.


Kelly Dignan is a spiritual companion who empowers people who want to grow spiritually, experience oneness with all that is, and act to create more love and justice in the world. She approaches her work as a co-journeyer who will help you move when you feel stuck and be supportive when things feel scratchy or messy. She is a mystic with a deep connection to the natural world. This, combined with intuition and her own shamanic practice, are foundational to her work. Kelly's ancestors are from Northern Europe. She has spent over 25 years learning about them and their spiritualities including the shamanic practices they had. Kelly holds a Master of Divinity from Iliff School of Theology and is an adjunct instructor there now. She is an ordained Unitarian Universalist (UU) minister. UUism allows her to be spiritually fluid; she is fluent in multiple religious and secular spiritual orienting systems, forcing none of them. She served three Colorado congregations before focusing on spiritual companionship, and before that, she had a 22-year career in business. Kelly is a Board Certified Coach.
