Kelly Carlin is a thinker, writer, talker and doodler. She’s funny, serious, silly and deep. Sometimes she wishes she were Carol Burnett, other days it’s Patti Smith, but mostly it’s Oprah Winfrey. It’s complicated. Her fascinations range from discovering how to live a true and deep life, to freedom of expression, to the evolution of consciousness and the American psyche. She’s a practitioner of Zen Buddhism, has a Masters in Jungian/Archetypal psychology (no, she is not a therapist), and comes from a family steeped in comedy, big ideas and warm hearts. Now that she’s found her voice in the world, she’s figuring out how to use it for good while having a shitload of fun.
