Hello Beautiful! I’m so glad you’re here.

Do you yearn to feel less like a victim of your fate? Do you want to laugh again? And get your life back?

I’m Cassandra Marcella Metzger, and I help women who live with chronic illness redesign their lives so they feel whole, seen and happy.

I’m a fellow chronically ill storm braver, riptide rider, and wellness seeker. And I know living well while ill is not an oxymoron.
I’ll help you find the resources you need to ease your suffering. 

Let me show you. We’ve got this.


Get ROUTINES FOR RENEWAL- 12 easy practices to restart your day.


This is your oasis

The place where your illness is known to be real & its effects vast. The place to have the choice-less agony of all that you’ve lost be seen. The place to rest and regroup. The place to be distracted and not think about your grief. The place to figure out the path to thriving, despite it all. The place where you begin to rebuild your life by creating wellsprings you can return to again and again for renewal. Because it takes some stones to live with an illness every day.

Where Can I Start?

Did you wake up feeling like crap? Well, I created a free guide specially designed for those days when you feel like you’ve been run over by an 18 wheeler. They are all do-able, but you can pick and chose what works for you right now. And you can change that up as you need and your body dictates because I know every day is different. Got brain fog and can’t even remember what you can do? Our guide comes with a handy cheatsheet to pin to your mirror to remind you. And as bonus you’ll also get a full list of go-to resources for relief. All for free.  


What if I Need More?

Let’s chat. For a limited time, I’m offering free 30 minute strategy wellness sessions. Recovering a semblance of a life is not a linear progression. It’s more like a spiral staircase - hopefully one that is ascending! When I first got sick, I was scrambling and trying everything. You throw spaghetti at the wall to see what sticks. And to discover what works. Don’t waste any more time. In a free 30 minute introductory session, you’ll get tips and tricks you can actually do.


How Can I Connect?

 I know being sick can be lonely. When I first got sick in 2000, the internet was in its infancy. (I was just grateful that CSpan was broadcasting fascinating legal arguments about the contested election!) Technology is a marvelous tool for connection and creating community. That’s why I hope you’ll join us in the Wellspring Stones Sanctuary Facebook group. I post inspiring articles, moving stories and curated resources right there for you to discover and enjoy. Don’t suffer alone. Come hang out with us, virtually.



Walk to the well.
Turn as the earth and the moon turn,
circling what they love.
Whatever circles comes from the center. 

— Rumi (as translated by Coleman Barks)
