~Creating Sanctuary~


I work to help each client set up her or his home as a personal success sanctuary.

I use a variety of Space and Personal Clearing modalities as well as my skills with Holistic Professional Organizing and the use of the basic principles of Feng Shui. I hold certifications in Space and Personal Clearing, and Holistic Organizing.

Why do a personal clearing? 

Have you ever had that ‘Ick!’ factor after an interaction with someone? That feeling is often an alert that you have received a negative projection, a poison dart into your auric field. We ALL receive them, and over time they build up leaving us unclear, cloudy and unsure of why we have the ‘Ick!’ feeling as a kind of background noise.

A Personal Clearing will remove these Disturbing Effects of Others from your field, as well many other layers of information built up during a lifetime in the 3D world. After the clearing you might feel incredibly refreshed…or exhausted! We all react differently, however one thing is sure, the positive effects are amazing and immediate.

For a Space Clearing we look at the 3 types of information that need clearing from a home or land:
Geopathic-energies from the Earth that need to be shifted such as underground water or fault lines.
Technological-microwaves, high tension power wires, cell towers, things that shed electrical impulses that affect our lives, homes and land.
Metaphysical-non-tangible information that is created by human beings such as former owners, graveyards, suicide trauma and which create energy patterns and vibrations which affect our land and living spaces.

If you have a home that will not sell or rent, if you feel uncomfortable in your home for reason you can’t quite put a finger on, then give me a call! For more information go here.


As a Reiki Master and Level II Certified Cranio-Sacral Therapist, Be brings a great depth of knowledge to the treatment room. Personal Clearing work is also part of the body work offered at Four Oaks Sanctuary. Combining these modalities with the use of stones, essential oils, herbs, bells, drumming and other sounds, Be will help you to release and heal in a gentle, safe space.
Shamanic Body Work session appointments tend to book up far in advance, please book ahead!


Do you need help organizing your home? I can work with you by doing a simple consultation which will leave you with many great ideas for getting your home organized in a way that will work for you and your family and a plan with which you feel empowered to move at your own pace and to organize in a way that makes you feel like you’re in charge of your home and things, not the other way around!
Four Oaks has 2 profession holistic organizers! Be and Martina. We can come to you and help you with the hard parts, too, the actual organizing, the going through your things, the sorting what nourishes you from the things that are weighing you down.
Our goal is to help you feel like you have everything you need to declutter, get organized and to truly love and appreciate your home. It’s all about relationship with your home! Let us help you get started.

~Shifting Spirit~


This is deep empowerment work for women who wish to grow and heal into their life’s sacred work. Be Essert, a Shamanic Magdalene and Shamanic High Priestess, will facilitate the circles. I am excited to bring this powerful, life changing work to women in my community.

For more information on the process please see the ‘Work with Me’ tab above and click on ‘Priestess’ under that. Or you can, click here and here.

The next circle is forming. Join us during the weekend of October 28-30, 2016 to activate your Inner Priestess.


A deeper movement into the mysteries of of the Sacred Feminine. The SMotSS works with the archetypes of Mary Magdalene, Isis, Ereshkegal and her sister Inanna, and Juno Moneta. We use these archetypes to heal and transform our relationships with money, power, sacred activism and sexuality.

We explore interdimensionality, go deep into our hidden selves with breathwork, and tell our stories of money and sexuality.

The Shamanic Priestess of the Sacred Shield is a prerequisite to this work.


In an empowerment circle, girls learn to redefine Girl Culture by supporting and honoring one another. They also learn life skills, talk about deep, difficult topics such as how women are represented in mainstream media, what is going on inside their minds and lives, and how our bodies function. This is a place where girls and young women can be open, ask questions and be real about what is going on in their world.

I am working on a facilitator training module for this work and will be available in the Summer of 2016 to travel to you and help you bring this work into your community.

Contact Be for more information.

Later, Miss Slater
