What does Zenned Out mean to you?
That moment when your mind is fluttering with flashing images of your wildest dreams, when you seemingly lose yourself deep in the connection of all that is, when you are completely absorbed by your soul’s inspired quest for purpose, when your inner goddess has been awakened to the divine magic which guides her way: THAT is being Zenned Out. It is that very sensation on which we built our soul-centered brand.
Born from the heart of a true creative visionary and Femme-Preneur, Cassie Uhl established Zenned Out as means to inspire women to foster a lifestyle in which purpose and passion are fully aligned. It is for this reason that Zenned Out is a women-run empire, where each piece is handcrafted by a woman who holds the same hopes and dreams deep within her heart that you do–to create from deep within, to connect with other goddesses from every corner of Mother Earth, and to be a source of inspired energy to others through her passions. Made to be more than a way to adorn yourself. It is meant to help pave a gilded pathway to open discussion about topics of spirituality, and create a space in which you can fully express your beliefs, hopes and inspirations.
At Zenned Out, all of our jewelry products are handmade in Arizona. We value keeping our craft local, small, and purposeful, so we will continue to make our products right here in the United States. We believe that by valuing craftsmanship and keeping money inside the U.S., change can happen. We are the alternative to mass production, we believe in the lighter side of gift giving, and making a difference in people’s lives. At Zenned Out, we want to give you the purchasing power that makes you feel good–not guilty.
What does Zenned Out support?
Zenned Out believes that equality for all is a deeply spiritual need and actively supports a variety of charitable causes. Right now our focus is to support the Black Lives Matter Movement. Here are some ways that we are taking responsibility as a spiritual business to help BIPOC and efforts to end racial inequalities. These will be updated as we learn more and the movement develops.
We currently make monthly donations to The Bail Project and a variety of Black activists and educators leading this movement. In addition to our monthly contributions, we're now extending a sliding scale for all purchases* made by BIPOC. If you are Black, indigenous, or a person of color and are interested in learning more about receiving a discount on our products, please email us here. *Discounts cannot be applied to the new "Understanding" book series as all pricing is handled by the publisher, not Zenned Out.
We would also like to do a better job of uplifting the voices of Black, Indigenous, and people of color on our blog. If you are a healer, psychic, card reader, or spiritual leader that would like to be compensated for sharing your voice on the Zenned Out blog, please email here with a topic(s) suggestion and to learn more.
If you are a small business owner looking make more of an impact in the racial inequalities faced by BIPOC, we encourage you to check out the work of Hello Seven here and to sign the anti-racist pledge.
Let your passion lead you to a lifestyle in which you live every day Zenned Out. Don’t hold back, divine darling! Be inspired, embolden others, grow, learn, laugh—and most importantly, let your heart and mind dream freely and wildly of all that you truly desire. Then, make it yours.
Cassie Uhl, Founder & Owner
My love of creativity, stargazing with my father, a deep adoration for yoga, and my grandmother’s open-minded spirit have all inspired my art and seep into the soul of Zenned Out.
Before launching Zenned Out, I taught art in public schools for five years. As someone with a deep desire to help young people awaken their inner artist, I found myself disheartened by the devaluation of the arts our school systems. I wanted to catalyze change by creating something that inspired others to unleash their own artistic energy and live a life that is in line with their soul’s divine purpose. I have dedicated myself to leading by example, making a living with my art, and thriving as a creative being.
Further, and more personally, I launched Zenned Out with the mission to create a brand that normalized spirituality in the common marketplace and offered people a space to discuss topics of spirituality freely, without fear of judgment. I believe empowerment springs from the wells of open-minded dialogue, freedom of expression, and discovery of one’s inner divine energy. I wanted Zenned Out to galvanize others to saturate the mainstream with unheard of thoughts and inspired actions, in the hopes that it would one day be “normal.”
