Trauma-informed spiritual support for living and dying.
Helping you explore your soul’s deepest inner callings at all phases of life.
You are on a unique spiritual journey that will shift as you cycle through each phase of your life.
Your path doesn't insist you follow a linear formula. It doesn't require you to meet certain expectations or operate within rigid structures. And it doesn't necessitate the appropriation of anyone else's culture, traditions, or beliefs.
Perhaps you . . .
Grew up in a home with religious expectations that felt out of alignment but yearned to feel connected to spiritual practice that feels like home.
Have felt shamed for expressing your spiritual beliefs and want a supportive environment to explore them.
Are struggling to make sense of a loss or death through your spiritual lens.
Or would like spiritual support in facing your mortality.
Regardless of where you’re at in your journey, if you’ve sensed any of these feelings rising within you, I’m here to welcome you and affirm you are not alone. Consider this space a judgment-free home for your spiritual exploration and expansion, wherever you’re at in your journey.
All the tools, resources, and services I offer are designed to help you embrace all phases of your spiraling path. I am not the seer with the answers rather a supportive guide to help you navigate the terrain of your soul’s inherent wisdom.
My hope is for you to develop your own regular spiritual practice, one that:
- Grounds you and connects you to the natural world
- Cultivates your unique intuitive gifts—and helps you build the confidence to use them!
- Empowers you to clear and balance your subtle energy body
- Inspires you to explore your deepest spiritual questions
- Honors all phases of your nuanced and varied human experience
YOU are your greatest teacher. My intention is to help you realize this truth and support you along the way, through life and death.

Welcome, I’m Cassie (she/her), a mother, intuitive energy healer, death worker, author, and creative soul.
I am passionate about normalizing spirituality and making it accessible. I believe in cultivating meaning through all phases of life, even death, and aim to support you wherever you are on your spiritual journey—beginning, end, or somewhere in between.
I opened up to my spiritual gifts at a young age through meditation and working with my energy. Though I grew up in a Christian household, I had a supportive, open-minded grandmother who made me feel safe to explore my spirituality. My spiritual experiences and learning as a young person created a strong foundation for exploring these themes more deeply as an adult. That foundation also helped me become a more compassionate guide to those who feel stuck, unsure, or even anxious about the next step in their spiritual journeys.
In addition to spirituality, I have a passion for teaching and creativity, which is woven throughout my work today. As a teacher, I recognize that we all learn and tap into our intuition differently: sometimes, we need more than just words or visuals to help us explore complex spiritual topics. I value offering experiential teachings through guided journeys, energy healing sessions, intuitive mentorship, and ritual guidance. I believe that ritual work is a deeply creative and healing process that can help us navigate some of our biggest transitions in life, including death.
I am committed to radical honesty and advocacy for the earth and all its inhabitants. I live and work in so-called Indianapolis, IN on Myaamia land. The Miami Tribe of Indiana was illegally stripped of their federal recognition in 1899 and rely heaviy on donations. Learn more about the Miama Tribe of Indiana or donate to them here. I honor the Myaamia people, past and present, who have and continue to tend this land long before it was colonized. I am committed to listening to, uplifting, and protecting BIPOC and LGBTQIA2S+ communities.
Cassie is a pagan animist who follows earth-based practices rooted in her ancestral land of Northern Europe and the local land where she resides tended by the myaamiaki in so-called Carmel, IN.
I’m deeply committed to my personal practice, unhooking from white supremacy, unsettling, and deepening my relationship with the mystery of life and death. I’m grateful and honored to have been able to learn from the following people and organizations:

These experiences have helped me develop my unique trauma-informed and spiritual approach to my work. Read on to learn more about my journey.
My spiritual path and journey as a business owner have shifted over the years, but in many ways, my goals and ideals have remained the same:
I educate and create to normalize spirituality.
I operate with radical honesty and integrity.
I seek to bring meaning to all phases of life.
I want everyone to feel supported on their spiritual journeys because I didn’t always feel that way. Growing up, I was often judged for my beliefs.
I had experiences as a young person that made my spiritual beliefs undeniable. Upon learning about the aura and energy body as a young person, I remember being amazed at how easily I could feel my energy body. I frequently experienced intuitive nudges and hits throughout my teenage and adult years and had an unquenchable curiosity about all things spiritual and magical.
As a young adult, I channeled much of my creative energy into art, which led me to teach art in public education for five years. Overtime, I found it to be harmful and unjust for students and teachers alike. I began selling jewelry on the side of my job, and after I completed my yoga teacher training, I decided to quit my full time job as an art educator and invest my energy in teaching yoga and creating jewelry. That’s when my first business, Zenned Out, was born.
Zenned Out grew and changed significantly over the coming seven years. During that time, I experienced a few major turning points: In 2015, I lost my grandmother and father within a month. This not only opened my eyes to the need for better death care in our society, but also opened something within me on a psychic level. To feel more connected to my British-born grandmother, I spent more time exploring the spiritual richness of my heritage. Journeying, connecting with my spirit guides, and working with altars became more prominent aspects of my spiritual practice.
As I sunk deeper into the spiritual practices of my heritage, rooted earth-based practices, I began having more intense psychic experiences. I began sensing when those I loved were nearing their transition from the physical world to the spirit world. I also experienced psychic visitations from those in the death process requesting help to cross over.
These experiences, though initially jaring, led me to a deeper calling, a calling to accept my spiritual gifts as an energy healer and to begin working with people at the end of life.
Once again, I knew it was time to trust the path that was being presented to me. I began working with a trusted healer that I’d seen for energy work years earlier, my now mentor, Robin Afinowich. Under her guidance and support, I began honing my abilities as an energy healer.
Like it was for many others, 2020 was a catalyst year for me that opened my eyes even more to how I'd been colluding with white supremacy, white feminism, and colonialism at the detriment of myself and others. After much unlearning and reflective work around the harm of cultural appropriation and my participation in it, I knew it was time for Zenned Out to retire. The name had no connection to my heritage and was extractive and harmful to Zen Buddhism. I began the long, painful, and ultimately healing process of detaching myself from a business rooted in cultural appropriation. I was forced to get clear about how to share my gifts with those I serve in integrity.
In this next phase of my journey, I look forward to continuing to uphold many of the cornerstones of my previous business, which includes the ethical sourcing of all my products. I will also continue to be open to shifts and transformations that, while difficult, are necessary to ensure I move through the world with integrity.
When we can face our deaths more fully, be it the death of a business, a phase, a loved one, or our own mortality, we're able to live our lives more fully. May you honor and acknowledge all phases—the beginnings and the endings as sacred. There’s beauty and wisdom in both.
