Kassia is the founder of Spirit’s Edge: A Seeker’s Salon, a spiritual community of sharing, connection and spiritual wisdom for seekers and practitioners of all spiritual paths, with a robust online and in-person community. Spirit's Edge offers Public Rituals and Salon discussions and teachings to celebrate the Turning of the Wheel of the Year to feed the Spirit that dwells within each of us. This ongoing, continuous offering of eight public sabbat rituals a year began in 2012 and was only briefly interrupted by the global pandemic in 2020! The first public ritual led by Kassia was Mabon 2012, and the first quasi-public ritual was at Beltane 2012.
The Spirit’s Edge Shamonial Tradition and Temple, also founded by HPS Kassia, brings together both shamanism and ceremonial magick in the context of Witchcraft. It merges teachings, breaks boundaries, bringing these concepts into a cohesive whole. It is a tradition not easily pigeonholed into one thing or the other. It also is a tradition that honors all traditions and that honors and welcomes all seekers. The Temple and Tradition was formally announced and initiated in 2014.
Kassia offers Witchcraft, Shamanism & Magick Online One Year Apprenticeships (levels I-V) in the Spirit’s Edge Mystery School, which she founded in 2013. As of May 2021, Kassia is also offering various classes in Witchcraft, Shamanism and Magick at St. Louis Community College, starting with the Fall Semester 2021. (Though her signature Apprenticeships in Witchcraft, Shamanism & Magick continue to only be available through her Mystery School.)
Kassia answered her spiritual calling to teach in 2012 and has never looked back! She also has continued to offer Witchcraft and shamanic classes, individual teaching and meditation sessions, shamanic healings, Reiki healings, crystal healings, and readings via phone (or zoom) appointments since that time. On occasion Kassia offers in-person classes in her magickal space The Witch’s Croft. She also writes a blog, Thoughts on the Edge by Kassia S. Morgan at Spirit’s Edge, which you may follow HERE. You may follow her on Twitter HERE. She also taught metaphysical classes for many years at The Center for Mind, Body and Spirit.
She is a clairvoyant, clairaudient, psychic empath with a passion for shamanic healing. Kassia aligns with the divine that runs through all things, bringing the spiritual into manifestation in daily life, through a working partnership with allies in the plant, animal and mineral kingdoms. She is certified in Gemstone Crystal Energy Work, a healing modality to align the mind, body and spirit by working with crystals to balance the energy centers of the body. She received her Reiki I from Mickie Mueller in September 2013, her Reiki II from Johnna White in November 2015, and her Reiki Master Practitioner and Reiki Master Teacher training/certificates from Johnna White in November 2016.
Kassia has been a practicing Witch for over 24 years (as of 2023). She worked as a solitary, later joining a teaching coven for several years (Coven of the Greenwood with then-co-High Priestesses Mickie Mueller and Ellen Dugan, which later dissolved), while also having another circle since Samhain 2007. She then hived off to form her own coven, RavenOak, on Jan. 1, 2010 with her circle. Kassia also founded Spirit's Edge at the same time! After 13 years of an active coven, Kassia dissolved the RavenOak Coven in 2020 to continue to focus her energies on the Spirit's Edge Shamonial Temple and her Mystery School, along with her ongoing intensive apprenticeships with the don Miguel Ruiz family.
Kassia graduated from the Temple of Witchcraft’s Mystery School in 2012 and served as a mentor and online moderator for its school. After graduating from the Mystery School in 2012, Kassia began her ongoing studies with don Miguel Ruiz and his family completing their seven week intensive Course in Mastery: The 7 Toltec Gateways for Reclaiming Your Spiritual Power and Mastering Your Life in the spring of 2013 and has continued her studies and apprenticeship with don Miguel Ruiz and his family ever since that time.

Kassia received the Nine Rites of the Munay-Ki in Feb. 2019 from Paula Curtis. For more information on the Munay-Ki, visit www.Munay-Ki.org. As Dr. Alberto Villoldo outlines, "the rites of the Munay-Ki are based on initiatory practices of the [Peruvian] shamans of the Andes and the Amazon. ... The Rites of the Munay-Ki transform and upgrade your luminous energy field. They are energetic transmissions that heal the wounds of the past-the karmic & genetic programs and beliefs you inherited." It is a series of Rites that is about stewardship and being of service.
In. Oct. 2013, Kassia completed the Michael Harner Foundation for Shamanic Studies Two-Week Shamanic Healing Intensive training earning their White Certificate.

Kassia created and managed the first Spirit’s Edge booth for the 2014 Pagan Picnic with the Spirit's Edge community and manages our Picnic booth each year. She is an annual presenter at the Pagan Picnic. Spirit’s Edge had the honor of performing the Opening and Closing Rituals at the 2013 St. Louis Pagan Picnic, its official debut. She also manages our Annual Online Auction on our Spirit's Edge: A Seeker's Salon community's private Facebook group page.
Kassia previously presented a Temple of Witchcraft workshop at the annual St. Louis Pagan Picnic and envisioned, launched and managed the inaugural Temple of Witchcraft booth at St. Louis Pagan Picnic for three years while in its mystery school (last running its booth in June 2013, six months after her graduation from its mystery school in December 2012).
She previously completed extensive studies under a local shamanic practitioner; Ellen Dugan (Natural Witchcraft 1 thru 4 and the Advanced Witchcraft series); Mickie Mueller (the “year and a day” Celtic Tree Calendar); Rhonda Leifheit; Deborah Bourbon (including two crystal series/certification, tarot series, Tree of Life series, quarterly energies courses and many more); and metaphysical/meditative life coach Jean Walters. Kassia was an initiated member of Coven of the Greenwood, a teaching coven under Ellen Dugan and Mickie Mueller as co-HPSs, before founding her own coven with her circle.
Kassia has been a student of all things spiritual throughout her life, always seeking to answer the question of “why” and discover the mysteries of the universe – a curiosity that has continued since childhood. She has been on the path of the Shaman, Witch and Mage in different ways throughout her life. When Kassia was a little girl, an older neighborhood girl "initiated" her as a Witch in a formal ceremony. An endearing story, yet it set the mark of her spiritual calling in this lifetime.
In addition to the heart of her current studies, Kassia began her path with a lifelong study of Christian religions, followed by years of comparative religious study. In addition to her extensive studies listed above, she also has attended miscellaneous classes and/or
seminars by Ted Andrews, don Miguel Ruiz, don Jose Ruiz, Dorothy Morrison, Judika Illes, and many more.
She has a Masonic heritage and is Past Honored Queen in the International Order of Jobs Daughters, Past DeMolay Sweetheart and two-time Past DeMolay Associate Sweetheart.
Kassia lives in St. Louis with her cats, and enjoys her spiritual path, gardening, yoga, riding hunt seat (that means jumping horses!), shooting, hanging out with friends and family, and visiting the family “Century Farm,” when she is not busy with her 30-year career in government affairs/public policy. She has had her own public policy consulting and coaching business since 2012. Outside of her volunteer work for the Temple, Kassia also volunteers on many civic boards and commissions.
She earned her Masters in Business Administration from the University of Missouri-St. Louis and graduated Magna cum Laude with her B.A. in Communications, Legal Institutions, Economics and Government from The American University in Washington, D.C.
