About Annie


Welcome to Your Spirited Life!

I’m its creator, Annie Mascelli.

My passion is to create unconditionally nonjudgmental places for you to grow, heal, learn, transform, and find your joy. I want you to discover who you truly are and embrace that unique person you discover, with all the beautiful messy humanness that comes with that. And I want you to have a fun and fulfilling work life that lights you up every day. I want your business to be successful, sustainable for you, and a transformative and happy place to work.

You deserve to live a Spirited Life! One of meaning, passion, joy, and conscious intention.

That doesn’t mean there won’t be challenges. And that’s where I come in. I’ve been through them myself and I’ve learned some things — about boundaries, facing challenges, finding joy, overcoming fears, getting well, starting and running a business, coping with loss, navigating transitions, learning from mistakes, taking chances, finding success, and finding my balance and inner peace.

And I’ve received miraculous gifts from every life experience, which I use to teach, inspire, and coach people like you every day.

As the founder and director of a school for the holistic healing arts, a life and business coach, and spiritual director, a natural foods cook, massage therapist, yoga and Tai Chi instructor, I’ve worked with 1000s of students and clients, empowering them to expand, heal, grow, and succeed.

I would be honored to support you on your journey, too.

Raised in the suburbs of upstate NY, I lived in NYC for many years before finding my soul landscape, beside a quiet creek in Central Pennsylvania. When I’m not writing, teaching, or working with clients, I like to make art, play music, hike in the woods, do yoga, garden, and go dancing.

My promise to you: I don’t know everything, but I’ll share with you everything I know — about how your life can really work for you, what will make your work succeed, and how to find a deep contentment, joy, and connectedness that never wavers.

I look forward to the adventure, together.

What Others Say

“I have never met anyone with a gift for listening like Annie’s.  Not just the patience it takes to listen, but the compassion it takes to HEAR what the person is saying (and not saying).  Annie listens with her heart and mind and really gives the speaker space to get it all out.”

“Annie comes at life with a passion that is so big and authentic that others can’t help but become inspired by it. She has a pioneering spirit. Her creativity makes her see things from a unique perspective and she is able to mold things into something brand new, so others can benefit!”

“Annie authentically shares her life experiences, allowing me as a student to relate the work on a deeper level. She has an incredible ability to deliver sometimes dense, deep materials and yet relate it to me as the student in a way which I can digest and understand.”
