Kami Miller pt 3: The Evolution of Religion: A Journey of Self-Discovery and Connection

I continue with my discussion with writer Kami Miller about the evolution of her relationship with religion and spirituality. Kami shared how exposure to diverse beliefs, her interest in paganism and stoicism, and the wisdom of age have shaped her personal understanding of the world.

“It’s so much more about communication and interconnectedness than it is about making things happen through spells and ritual and manifesting.”

As a multi-talented philosopher driven by connections between nature, spirituality, and growth, Kami brought unique insights to our conversation. She reflected on how falling in love and joining a community shifted her childhood dreams of isolation. Kami also discussed her parents’ influence in finding balance between creativity and responsibility.

Together, we explored how Kami’s perspectives on paganism and stoicism have matured over time. She offered thoughtful reflections on the power of communication, interconnectedness, and accepting nature’s indifference. Kami’s self-discovery exemplifies how embracing new ideas can be transformative.

This episode offers valuable perspectives for anyone interested in expanding their spiritual horizons. Whether a seasoned seeker or simply curious, Kami’s journey will captivate and inspire.

I’m grateful to Kami for joining me on this journey through the evolution of her personal relationship with religion and spirituality. Tune in for an enlightening dialogue that will widen your horizons and offer a fresh take on the interplay between nature, philosophy, and I’m grateful to Kami for having such an open conversation about the realities of her career.

Thanks again, and I love that you are here to listen to Good Life Stories.

About Kami Miller

Kami, who writes memoirs as Tammy Owen and fantasy novels and stories as E. M. Prazeman and KZ Miller, lives in the beautiful Pacific Northwest, you know, where it rains a lot. What a lot of people don’t know is that her area has very dry summers, so she ends up dragging hundreds of feet of hose around the garden. This requires hose guides, all of which are impromptu ‘temporary’ things like the broken ends of rakes. 

Dragging hose also requires muscle. Luckily she’s built up quite a bit moving alfalfa bales, running heavy equipment like sicklebar mowers and oversized rototillers, digging out invasive blackberry vines, and wrestling with goats, among other picturesque activities. 

Her extremely patient, generous husband, international man of mystery Rory Miller, is always there to lend a hand with nary an eye roll. She would still be buried in blackberries, or eaten by cougars, or some other horrible fate if it weren’t for him. 

Kami enjoys belly dancing, painting, climbing, travel, and putting her feet up and reading a good book. She hopes to do all that again someday, when the farm is all in order.
