Note from Kerri: Deborah went on to write and perform her one woman show, despite being terrified of being seen on stage as an artist and not just a lecturer. She then went on to study vibrational sound healing, and is now building her business "The Art Evangelist" which is her soul's work and deepest pleasure!
"I came to Kerri looking for guidance on which direction to take my business and creative endeavors. Her vast knowledge of Inner Upgrades and Human Design in addition to her intuitive nature intrigued me, and I was confident that she would be able to help me get past my creative blocks.
In our 1:1 and group sessions, Kerri listened attentively and met me where I was each time, not judging even the slightest bit when I had changed my mind about something or couldn't yet figure out which direction to go.
Because she knew my Human Design so well, she understood my ways of being in the world and in my business and validated them lovingly.
“Kerri’s work is magnificent and otherworldly. She was able to tap into thoughts, feelings and emotional patterns in me that I have not shared with others.
During our 4th session my patterns of ‘filling up space’, ‘taking on extra work’, and doing more than I need to came up. I realized after the session that these deep-seated patterns have affected my health, burnout at work and general relationship to work/career, especially as a Projector in Human Design.
I am still processing the shifts and the insights and am unexpectedly finding this pattern come up in other aspects of my life.
“I recently received a remote session from Kerri on the tail end of what seemed like a two-month long cold and at the commencement of production week for a large scale project. Kerri took the time with me at the start of the session to talk about my needs and what I hoped to get out of the session.
I work at a large, busy non-profit that requires a great deal of collaboration, and we identified that I was having an even more difficult time than usual with communication and decisiveness at work. She then “tuned in” to my body to begin to unearth and untangle any hidden knots that may have been hindering my success, talking with me about my experience and asking me questions along the way.
At its core, the session felt like mental and emotional therapy prioritizing information held in my body, rather than exclusively focusing on information held in my mind.
"Kerri is an incredibly gifted coach and healer. Her ability to hold space and intuitively guide you through your process is unmatched. Before working with Kerri, I was working through some limiting beliefs such as "needing to do it all on my own" and feeling lost and confused.
Through UHP, Human Design, and Kerri's embodied listening, I was able to accept myself exactly as I am, gain so much clarity and understanding, and truly give myself permission to be the person I already am.
Kerri has this presence that I trusted immediately which is so key while doing this vulnerable, personal work. Anytime old wounds would come up throughout our sessions such as guilt or shame, she guided me into a softening to accept my light as well as my shadow. Thank you, Kerri!" - Leya
Kerri’s insights and healing work have truly empowered me and my relationship to my current work role and to how I show up in my life is shifting.
Through working with Kerri I’ve experienced release from emotional pain, particularly deep-seated emotional and thought patterns. This has been a truly life-shifting experience. I have already recommended Kerri to multiple friends. Her work is truly a gift to humanity.” - Mita
"Working with Kerri supported me in better understanding myself and how I can interact with the world from a place of authenticity and power. The world of Human Design is fascinating and Kerri did a wonderful job of breaking down all of the elements specific to my design. I immediately started to experience results as I brought the awareness of my design into my life. It relieved a lot of pressure, making me step into my wholeness as a human being with power and grace. Doing this work with Kerri is forever integrated into my life." - David
Kerri’s highly gifted and intuitive and our relationship spans about 7 years. I highly recommend her to other leaders and CEO’s who are seeking clear energetic support and insight.” - Tanya
I left each session feeling clear and excited about the steps I wanted to take, and I left the program feeling more confident in myself and the gifts I have to share with the world.
I'm so very grateful to have had the opportunity to be guided by Kerri and I highly recommend that any creative woman seeking clarity in her life and/or career path invest in her mentorship. - Christie
I realized, during this session, that my body was holding onto old beliefs that were buried so deep that I’d forgotten they were there. I hadn’t even told Kerri about my everlasting cold, but wasn’t surprised when she described the connection between my immune system and the exact difficulties I’d been experiencing emotionally. Kerri uncovered these beliefs and turned them into lessons that I could acknowledge and release, rewiring my mind and body to take on new, more productive beliefs.
The lessons that Kerri made me aware of in this session were so accurate that I laughed, and perfectly timely— it was clear that these were the things that I was ready to tackle at this time in my life. I went into the production feeling energized and clear headed. It has been two weeks since the session, and I’ve noticed that projects involving team work and making big decisions have been smooth and effortless.
Kerri is such a joy to receive healing work from. She radiates joy, sincerity, honesty, and compassion, and creates an atmosphere of safety and comfort, even from across the country. I’m so grateful to Kerri for her work, and am looking forward to more.” - Celina
“Kerri’s power lies in her exquisite grace and serenity. What’s most impressive to me is her non-dualistic approach: she offers methods that allow for both flow and structure - i.e. gentle allowing/surrendering and at the same time, structuring and planning.
Her tools unite body/mind, feminine/masculine with creative practices that encourage wholeness, authenticity, inspiration and joy. The result of her techniques might best be described as “flowing structures” or “playful discipline” which produce optimal conditions that allow for creativity to flourish.
I truly cherish the work I’ve been doing with Kerri and it is a privilege to be working with her. She brings great depth, intuition and compassion to each session. I consider Kerri my creative midwife helping me birth the artist that has always been inside me but feels too afraid to come out.” - Deborah
“Understanding the role of my authority and energy type in Human Design has helped me manage my energy, trust my choices, and follow my body’s wisdom - its intuitions as well as its needs - to both work more efficiently and welcome serendipity. As a real estate agent I’m fortunate to have a great deal of freedom in the way I run my business; human design has been a big part of making the most meaningful use of that freedom (and you should see me running my colleague’s charts to improve our collaborations!). HD (and Kerri) keep on helping me imagine and sustain a business that brings me real joy.” - Michaela
“Three summers ago Kerri Van Kirk did a Human Design reading for me that profoundly shifted the trajectory of my business for the better. By looking at some of the more nuanced material and communicating it to me in a way that felt intuitive, not just learned, she was able to help me illuminate the kind of leadership that was most natural to me and aligned with my design so I could lean into it.
This has impacted the way I communicate and present myself in the world as well as affirming an inner philosophy I’ve always had around radical generosity and the way that that works to bring me and those around me exactly what I need.
"Working with Kerri has fundamentally changed my job, my business and how I work and create in the world. In that way, she has fundamentally changed my life for the better. She has been able to unlock for me insights and a deeper understanding of my strengths as a leader, businesswoman and creator and then practice & apply them.
In our time working together, she helped me identify and create a business structure and lifestyle around my personal and professional vision, even as it changed. I can now say I’m living from my zone of genius; Kerri’s support was an instrumental part of that.
Kerri uses multiple techniques and skills, including Inner Upgrades and Human Design, which allows her to adapt to the ever-changing needs of me and my business while never losing sight of the end goal: growth, empowerment, professional impact, satisfaction with life and creative and spiritual self-actualization.
She’s fluent in meeting me where I am, seeing where I want to go, helping me find the right answers, whether it’s emotional, practical or creative.
She’s a fantastic coach and healer and I’d recommend her in a heartbeat for anyone ready to work at a deeper level."
- Shannon DeJong. Writer/Performer and CEO, House of Who, Inc.
“I really feel freer, free to be who I am. Stepping into my power. Being more confident with who I am and what I want. I am learning to separate everyone’s else’s feelings from my own. Thank you.” — Rene, Entrepreneur (Mindset Wellness CBD)
Kerri has inspired me from the moment I was recommended to her; her story is touching, inspiring, and relatable as a woman with a background in the arts. She has a way with words, a way with energy, and a strong vulnerability that invites you in to access the same. Working with Kerri is a treat and a gift that I'm grateful my life has been blessed with.” - Erika
“I’ve been in personal development as a customer and service provider for over 10 years. I still wouldn’t know how to describe Kerri's work other than... it’s MAGIC. I don’t know why or how, but it works.
It works best for the things you sense, but can’t find words for. Or when you know you want things to be different, but are unclear about why you’re still stuck. Or if you feel conflict (between yourself and yourself, or yourself and others), and want more ease and flow.
More than just the Inner Upgrades, I deeply appreciate the attuned and aligned guidance Kerri created for me. The channeler is just as important as the channel. Kerri and energy work are a potent mix. I’ve brought Kerri in to work with some of my own clients. That’s how much I trust her and this incredible service she offers. I recommend Kerri without reservation to anyone looking for more ease, clarity, and freedom.” - Christina
"Thank goodness for Kerri Van Kirk! For months, I had been agonizing over a project, struggling to complete it and feeling quite stuck in the process. From the moment I first met with Kerri, I knew that I was in the right hands. Not only is she gentle, warm and engaging, but she is also extremely organized, professional, laser-focused, intuitive and wise. With Kerri, I was able to relax and allow the magic to unfold. In just a few sessions, she helped me to weave the loose threads of the project into a beautiful, complete tapestry. I am forever grateful for Kerri's help." - Leslie
“Working with Kerri was amazing. I felt totally safe and relaxed. As she began to communicate with my body she found old wounds that needed clearing, limiting beliefs that needed to be released as well as joy to align with. After the session I felt a surge of creative ideas. I felt lifted and clearer. The combination of Inner Upgrades and coaching with Kerri as your guide is an invaluable healing tool that is well worth your time. - Linda
