Silent Moon Mission and Vision


Silent Moon Coaching Service’s mission is to help people take an inward journey to find their own answers that will create a life in which they feel authentically at choice, empowered, fulfilled and in charge.


Silent Moon’s vision is to use natural places, the arts, writing and animals to help people connect with their truth, their voice, their talents and communities through Co-Active Life Coaching.


Creativity is the forest of our humanity. Art and music help us connect with our roots and horses accompany us on our journey, carrying our burdens and providing companionship. Throughout history, horses have lifted us through myth, guided our sub-conscious mind in dream time, assisted in the construction of cities, provided transportation, and chaperoned in peace and war. They have patiently waited on the sidelines of dancing campfires throughout history while humans played drums, sang, and painted life with ancient story brushes hoping to imprint future generations with acquired knowledge and skill. They lead us into creation with the cadence of hoof beats that sound like drumming, summoning wisdom and connection to the divine. Silent Moon’s creativity based Co-Active Life Coaching service’s are for people that want change and are ready to step into making their dreams manifest. Human’s are natural beings part of the environment, not separate from it. Silent Moon seeks to use nature based mediums to assist you on your journey to create a life that brings you joy, fulfillment and positive challenges that will empower and inspire you.
My philosophy was born out of growing up around horses, getting lost in art, and traveling with Renaissance Festivals around the United States in the 1990’s.  Just barely out of high school, I was lucky to be hired by an artist who I traveled with and made a decent living at.  During these travels, it was the community that changed my life completely through campfire conversations, drum jams, developing trust with each other through rock climbing, river rafting, relying on each other when our vehicles broke down and learning the language of natural rhythms of water, air and earth.  From the desert in Arizona to the waters in Florida, the community grew me and gave me the gifts that made me into a coach who brings the arts into traveling free spirited world-schoolers and their children.   Please see my bio for other major life transitions that lead me to where I am now but as far as philosophy goes, living in nature and traveling are my passion from which I coach from.

Travel Therapy

Traveling set in my soul at a young age.  There is a certain magic that comes with transporting to new surroundings and landscapes. Maybe it’s a type of escapism, but one thing I know is it brings people together who experience it with each other.  Even if my daughter and I go somewhere locally, the act of going into a new surrounding clears our slates and brings us back together in connection.

In June, we set off for a great California adventure.  We stuck to our budget, replacing the huge costs of Disney and Universal Studios with the wax museum and learning how to handle waves in Huntington Beach.  We manged to see all of the possible landscapes that California has to offer driving from Ontario up to San Francisco through the dry valley and taking the 1 back down from Cisco to Big Sur, then cutting across back over to L.A. and down to San Diego.  We made it through fatigue, seeing the realities of the city, being accosted in Venice Beach by a group of men, teaching daughter how to deal with people from all walks of life, how to stay safe in general in different situations and then how to stay safe specifically as a female.  We learned how to determine what areas of town are safe, how to pick up on shifts with people, how to avoid certain situations and how to express loving kindness through all the chaos and confusion.  Being that I come from a background of advocacy for people experiencing homelessness and mental health, it was a rare gift to be in a state that is so replete with homelessness so that I could teach her the ins and outs of what it means and how to navigate through it. We talked about how to deal with life in a sober way, tools that help us get through our struggles, what happens that causes someone to loose housing, what possibly causes are behind chronic homelessness, racism in our system and how to advocate for what is right and the hugest part we learned was loving others no matter what their circumstances are.  After the hard life lessons we had a lot of fun at the Boardwalk on Santa Cruz, watching sea lions, visiting with friends, how to book and stay at Air b n b’s, how to ride waves and many other experiences.  I just want to touch on the therapeutic aspects of traveling there though.  The beauty of traveling is connection.  Not only the connection that happens with the people we are traveling with but connection to the earth and the inhabitants of our planet.  When we experience the life of a subject versus reading about it, we embody a piece of that subject.  For instance, we can read about homelessness all day long but to be in the middle of it, to being sharing space with a whole street of people living in tents, you now are a part of it.  It changes you, you can feel for someone when you are in the same space as them.  If there is any interaction at all, that becomes a real situation.  When we hung out with the wild sea lions at the dock in Santa Cruz, we watched their behavior,  We saw them basking in the sun and saw the mother of a pup worry about the pup and leaped across four other grown sea lions to get to pup.  We learned about their capacity for caring for one another, that they like to sleep during the day in the sun, heard their alarm systems and saw how each other responded to each cry.  Had I read about this on the internet, I probably wouldn’t be talking about it right now but seeing and being with them in their space, i now know a few things about sea lions that I will always remember because I experienced watching them with my daughter, we had a discussion about them, laughed at their funny calls, and shared our time in that moment.  Traveling took us out of our heads, provided us with real time, novel moments, provided topics we could ponder together and revealed our hearts to each other.  We both got lost in the moment, shedding doubt, fear, clinging to the past, etc.  Traveling is like meditation that way, you let go of ego to experience what is.  You keep coming back to the present moment of what is happening to you now.  I suggest traveling when ever you get a chance.  Just go and experience life.

Spring is like a perhaps hand

E. E. Cummings, 18941962


Spring is like a perhaps hand 
(which comes carefully 
out of Nowhere)arranging 
a window,into which people look(while 
people stare
arranging and changing placing 
carefully there a strange 
thing and a known thing here)and

changing everything carefully

spring is like a perhaps 
Hand in a window 
(carefully to 
and fro moving New and 
Old things,while 
people stare carefully 
moving a perhaps 
fraction of flower here placing 
an inch of air there)and

without breaking anything.

Noticing Process.

My current situation: I’m learning that painting is my go to for solving the super deep dilemmas at the soul level, the doodles fill in the quiet moment spaces, digital fractal art is for helping my eyes refocus and get clear on new ways of seeing things, creating music goes to my intellectual core and community connection space, writing reaches the most vulnerable and sweet places within me and creative movement like Zumba, helps me connect to flow and higher flow that connects us all to the divine. It’s so beautiful being able to see the depths of all that is within each medium or process. This is the essence of my healing journey and the premise from where I teach and walk from.

Be Kind To Yourself!

Nothing can be gained by regret.  Learn and move quickly from your misstep and try again harder today.  If unseen forces outside of you are pulling at your psyche, do what you can to move through it as fast as you can and turn your day around to make it the best you can for today.

Don’t Forget!

You are worthy of love, of respect, and of your desires manifesting!  You matter!!  You are beautiful, courageous, and a survivor!  You are alive today.  You made it.  How will you celebrate this very important day?

With Honor and Integrity,

H. Leigh
