Sacred Grove — Where People and Pets Heal and Connect!
“People usually reach out to me for help with behavioral issues, emotional issues, and end-of-life transitions. Since I’m also a medical intuitive and energy healer, I use all these skills to help folks’ beloved animals,” says local Animal Communicator Maribeth Decker of Sacred Grove.
Maribeth wasn’t born an animal communicator. She discovered her calling after she became a Reiki Master. That’s when her own dogs started communicating with her — some who’d passed and some still on the planet. This was her wake-up “bark” to shift to animals and their people!
Maribeth works with people locally and around the world. She recently worked with Hanne’s dog Brandy in Norway. Brandy withdrew emotionally from Hanne and stopped eating and drinking after a veterinarian visit. This continued for weeks. “Within 24 hours of Maribeth’s session, Brandy became her own self again, increasingly eating and drinking properly. Her cocker spaniel spirit was back, with the continuously wagging tail,” said Hanne.
Having worked with animals moving towards transition, Maribeth wrote her bestseller, Peace in Passing: Comfort for Loving Humans During Animal Transitions. In this book, you can find mindsets, modalities and real-life stories to help you navigate the last leg of you beloved animal’s life.

If you had a chance to enhance a child’s future with a time commitment of less than 2 hours a week, how would you respond? You have that opportunity right now to join over 200 Alexandrians as a reading tutor volunteer with the Alexandria Tutoring Consortium (ATC).
ATC tutors work with one child in kindergarten, first, or second grade in Alexandria public schools who need extra help with reading. Tutors meet with their Book Buddy 1-2 times each week for 30 minutes October-May at school, during school hours. Many struggling readers only receive one-on-one instruction through this program, and it makes all the difference. Last year, ATC served 195 children, of whom 82% ended the year reading on grade level and 96% made substantial reading gains. But the need is great, and we are still seeing learning lags from the pandemic.
This year, ATC plans to significantly increase the size of the program to reach over 250 students and to serve every elementary school in Alexandria. This is very exciting news, but we will only succeed if we can recruit more tutors. ATC trains you, matches you with a child, and provides ongoing lesson materials and support.
