Spiritual Life & Meditation Coaching, empowering Christian women to slow down, connect with God & live a more balanced life.

About Sacred Tree Ministries Podcast - Susanne Poté

At  Sacred Tree Ministries we combine holistic inner healing and biblical meditation techniques with the power of the Holy Spirit to help you slow down, stop going in the wrong direction, and apply biblical principles to living a life where you know your identity and are able to create a lasting connection with God.

Think of your mind as a fast-moving train. When we realize we are going in the wrong direction many people just simply try to turn around. This never works and often ends in a derailment in the form of unachieved goals, condemnation, and shame. Realistically the first step in any healing or change process is to get the runaway train to slow down!

Sacred Tree Coaching works because we take an honest and direct approach to identifying where you are and outline the next step in reaching your goals. We create true and honest partnerships with our clients and walk you through each stage of your inner healing and life goal achievement process!

Meditating on Beach


We’ve all been told that we need to meditate on God’s word, that we need to spend time with Him, that we need to give our worries and our cares over to Jesus. Many women struggle with exactly how to make this connection!

At Sacred Tree, we teach very practical and easy ways to relax, shift your focus, and spend time in the presence of God. Allowing you to space to shift your focus from living in fear, condemnation, or anxiety to achieving your goals in family, work, and ministry.
