About Rev. Cassandra Rae
Reverend Cassandra Rae is an unexpected minister! She was raised evangelical Baptist and spent her twenties as an angry atheist. She discovered the Centers for Spiritual Living after experiencing a medical crisis that moved her to restore more than just her body. She opened up her heart and began healing old wounds, which led her straight to the unconditional love of Spirit within. Now she is a passionate speaker, teacher, and writer of an empowered spirituality that embraces our humanity, connects with an Inner Source of wisdom and guidance, and realizes our power to co-create a world that works for everyone.
Cassandra was born in Anchorage, Alaska and raised in a predominately Mexican neighborhood in Salinas, California. She is the youngest of three daughters born to an Inupiaq father and white mother. Her bi-racial ethnic identity has shaped her sense of belonging, agency, and place within her family, community, and the world. She used to see it as a disadvantage as she never felt like she truly fit anywhere – even at home. But, as she’s deepened her understanding of spiritual principle and has walked the path of ministry, she’s learned that all of her identities are serving a Divine Purpose and that her bi-racial super power enables her to walk in different worlds with a new and different perspective. Her preferred pronouns are she/her.
