SHAUMBRA MAGAZINE: How and when did you find Crimson Circle?
KERRI: In 2002 I was building a restaurant and had some spare time while waiting for my franchise to come through. I came across Crimson Circle through a web search on St. Germain. I had a day job in a law firm where all I did was read channels. I read channel after channel after channel, and then found out the Shouds were right here (in Colorado)! So, I finished my last channel on a Friday and drove up to Coal Creek Canyon the next day to be there in person.
SM: What do you do for Crimson Circle?
KERRI: Well, you know, keeping it real! (giggles) Being a hostess is obviously my bag, because not only did I do this, but I started a successful restaurant many years ago. I enjoy it and I’m good at making people feel welcome. A lot of people tell me – I see them years later and they go – “You were the first one I ever met at a Shoud and you were so nice to me.” I love that. You know, when someone first shows up to these events, it’s nerve-wracking, so they always have a friendly face in me, someone to come say hi to. Plus making coffee is incredibly cool and people are amazed by it.
SM: So you host the Masters Club at the monthly gatherings?
KERRI: Yes, and special events too. I used to be a karaoke DJ queen but that title went away due to some technical issues. I hope to get it back one day. I used to host the best karaoke dance parties on the planet! Well, that’s my memories anyway. I don’t know if others remember the same thing.
SM: What do you like most about the job?
KERRI: My favorite part about it just creating a space where people want to hang out and socialize. I feel that’s important.
SM: So, your tasks include setting everything up, putting out the food, making coffee and putting everything away at the end?
KERRI: It’s being a hostess, truly, because putting out all the food and cleaning it up is good, but I think people like having a hostess who’s welcoming. But my real job is standing at the ready for Adamus’ coffee order. I call him Boss, and I wait with bated breath, hoping he’ll want coffee.
SM: Is there any part of the job that’s challenging or difficult?
KERRI: Hell no, I could do this stuff in my sleep! There’s nothing challenging or difficult. It feels very natural to me. My mother took me to the Catholic Church, and at a very young age I was in their kitchen cutting up cake and serving coffee to the little old ladies. This is something that obviously I love to do, so it really is not a challenge at all. Hoping we don’t run out of stuff is the only challenge.
SM: What do you feel passionate about?
KERRI: Really, my passion has left me. I understand that our passion now is supposed to be this new way of living on the planet, but I don’t feel like I have a lot of passion going on. I’m not really interested in anything at all lately.
SM: Actually, a lot of people will understand that.
KERRI: Honestly, I haven’t wanted to start a new business because I was so ingrained with hard work. I had my first job at age 12 and grew up thinking that hard work led to rewards. And it did – until now. And I was always good at just willing things to happen. I powered my way through everything, and things happened because I used my will and my strong personality. And now all those magic tricks – there’s nothing there. They just don’t cut it after you’ve heard everything we’ve heard here.
So, I’m really just sitting back right now and trying to enjoy this phase, not really knowing what’s going to come next. If I could have anything I wanted, I would have an elegant place to entertain people, with my own stage where I would do comedy. That would be my new passion, but it’s not yet materialized.
SM: Anything you’d like Shaumbra to know about you?
KERRI: I lost a lot on this road to enlightenment. My family shrank from 8 to 4, so there was a lot of shocks and bumps along the way. I feel like I have a deep understanding for people that come across this stuff and then their life falls apart, because it does sometimes. It’s not always the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow, because as you start to get woke, you start to see what humanity is going through, and it’s hard to be the observer and not want to save people or save things or stand up and fight the good fight.
I now worship at the Reformation of the Drama Mamas Church because I loved the drama and I loved a good fight. I’ve backed away from that in so many ways over these past years, seeing that it’s just a waste of energy to fight or battle or have drama. I see it’s so wise to have Adamus give us the advice he does because it’s helped me look at myself and make different choices about letting the Master be the one I am instead of letting all these pouty bratty aspects run me. That’s been huge. It’s been a way to beautifully transform my life in so many ways. I love the Crimson Circle and Geoff & Linda. What they’ve done has changed my life and I would never, ever take any of this back. I’ve had a front row seat to the coolest thing in the universe!
