Cassie's Biography:

Hello! My name is Cassie Shipley and I am a Sound Bath Facilitator. I am from Indianapolis, Indiana but grew up in North Vernon, Indiana. I am a wife, mother and business owner and I love all things related to animals and nature. My heart and soul are rooted in all things from our Mother Earth.

A little bit of history about me... I have suffered with postpartum/clinical depression and anxiety since 2010 after the birth of my first child. Over the past 13 years I have been on a healing journey. I find healing through sound, yoga and meditation and seek to share this gift with others. I have found that sound and the energy it brings can help you rest, restore and heal.

I look forward to sharing some of this goodness with you.
