I am SO grateful that you have taken the time to explore Soul Space. If you’d like to get to know the face behind the website, here I am.
I’m Cassidy Holland, a Reiki Practitioner from Toronto, Canada, and the creator of Soul Space. I have journeyed across the globe to learn about alternative healing and the mysterious energetic workings of the universe.
During my travels I have been lucky enough to spend time with many incredible people from all walks of life: healers, monks, mystics, and shamans alike. While absorbing their teachings, I have grown passionate about bringing them to light and making them accessible to everyone. I have dedicated myself to helping others to free themselves from suffering through personal and spiritual development.
My journey and mission was born out of my darkest moments. My dark night of the soul nearly broke me, which ended up being a blessing in disguise.
For many years I struggled with body image issues and battled bulimia. Later down the line I was self-medicating with drugs and alcohol. I was playing alchemist in the worst way, balancing my “uppers” and my “downers” throughout the day. My life consisted of stimulants to get me up and pharmaceuticals to wind me down.
I could sustain my chaotic lifestyle for a while, but eventually, all flames burn out. At my worst I had dropped out of college, quit my job, and barely left my bed for months.
Breaking down withered the walls I had built and created space for light to shine through. My isolation and disconnection gifted me with the opportunity to experience whole-hearted connection to a world beyond my suffering. My breakdown became my breakthrough. As JK Rowling put so finely, “rock bottom became the solid foundation on which I rebuilt my life”.
Now, my passion is to help others create a life of meaning, purpose and fulfillment. I made Soul Space with the intention of creating an environment where people can feel safe connecting with one another, and explore the topics that can feel difficult to approach.
I warmly welcome you to this Space, and hope that you join us on this journey of soulful expansion and development.
