*Silent Moon Coaching Services* Holding a Space of Light While You Navigate Through the Night.


April is right around the corner and brings with it “arboretum discovery sessions”.  Discovery sessions are the first place to start if you are designing an alliance with a Life Coach.  Typically these sessions run around two hours and come with a packet of what I call “fleshing out your character” pages.  We begin with goal setting and other tools that you can learn by setting up your complimentary 15 minute sample session.  I design my life coaching around nature, animals and the arts because they are what brings me to life. My goal is to help you transform through these means.  Your discovery session will take place in a natural space either selected by you or jointly at an agreed upon time.  Give yourself the gift of personal coaching.  YOU ARE WORTH IT!!!

Call for your complimentary session today: (612)280-6033



What a great month March has been with many people responding to the “walk and talk” sessions.  You seem to be getting a lot out of goal manifesting in nature.  There has been much research done on walking in nature in the field of neuroscience and studies are finding that perception (the act of looking far ahead in a peaceful surrounding in this case) changes brain chemistry.  Actually co-creating with your environment in any way changes brain chemistry and lifts the vibration that you send into the world.  This is why I stand by my philosophy of manifesting in nature.  You can view personal stories on the daily writing prompt tab on this blog.  I just want to thank all who have called to try out a “walk and talk” session and for being open to something new.  The first step to achieving your goals is the hardest and I appreciate that you are open to coaching and to discovering what is possible.

I have one “walk and talk” session left on 3/24.  Do you enjoy nature?  Do you have some goals you would like help moving into?  Do you feel stuck and are unsure where to start?  Give me a call ASAP to get the ball rolling in motion.  You deserve to live the life or your dreams and there is no better time to start than right now.

Create your life built from passion not regret!





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.


There are three spots available the week of 3/20 through 3/27 for your first walk and talk session.  Do you like nature?  Do you want to start moving towards a goal but are unsure of where to start or how to get there?  Having a personal coach can help you start moving forward in the direction of your dreams Today.  The first step is the hardest when navigating in unknown territory.  Sometimes it is frightening to dream of the possibility of living your life exactly how you wish you were.  Coaches can help not only motivate you but also hold the space while you look for firm ground to stand on before you take flight.  You don’t have to commit until after your first session.  What a great gift you can give yourself, to get moving forward to living at your best life that you see in your mind and know in your heart that you wish you could just do it.  I say this from experience because I also struggle with my own hurdles both personally and professionally.  Take the high road and start living exactly how you design.  It’s never too late.

Create a beautiful day.




I am running  a “break away from the winter blues” walk and talk session through the month of March. Who is feeling spring fever yet?  Don’t you deserve to live up to your fullest potential?  I know you deserve that.  When we show up big, we are vibrating at our highest and that is when life feels wonderful.  Give the gift of creating your life passion not regret.  The 30 minute session is completely free and then 25% off through the month of March.  I do ask for a three month commitment after you decide if coaching is for you.  Are you stuck in completing your goals?  Do you know that your life could be more but you don’t know where to begin?  If so you may do well with a Life Coach.  Feel free to contact me for your first free 30 minute walk and talk session.




I am currently running ‘discovery session’ specials through the end of February.  If you are looking for change in your life but are unsure where to start, the discovery session is a great place to begin looking at your options and dust the snow off of your windows to get a clearer vision.  I will coach you through the session with self designed tools that allow you to get curious, start planning, and peek into what drives your vision and mission in life.  Please call to set up your discovery session today.




Silent Moon Coaching Service’s mission is to help people to take an inward journey for their own answers to creating a life in which they feel authentically happy, 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 awaited 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 afro Cuban 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.
Below is a picture of Marco. He helped create the idea behind Silent Moon Co-Active Life Coaching. He is now retired but I pay homage to Marco for carrying Silent Moon through fields of uncertainty into the light.

Welcome To Silent Moon Coaching Services

Thank you for taking the first step in shifting your life in a positive direction!  You deserve to realize your goals and dreams; it all begins with you. Silent Moon Coaching Services provides Co-Active Creativity Life Coaching to single mothers, artists, musicians, children, writers, nature lovers and people who are seeking to live a fit life.  Some mediums that Heather uses in her coaching are painting, song creation, jam sessions, journal writing, vision boards, memoir writing, morning pages, walk and talk nature sessions, horses, and creative movement.

What is Life Coaching?

Some things Life Coaching is not is therapy, counseling, advice, consulting or psychotherapy.  Rather, it is more like a sport coach but for personal transitions, personal development, getting over hurdles, developing plans of action, and shifting you from where you are right now to a life of more satisfaction, focusing on your strengths to help build your life and get it moving in a forward direction from your action plan. You design your unique coaching sessions to tailor what you want to achieve whether it be personal, career, starting a business, world travel with your family, or managing your time.  Coach Heather will shine a light while you navigate in the night.  As a coach, it is my duty to hold space for you while you design what you want to get out of coaching.

Happy Autumn!

Just two days into fall and it already feels like it is.  This is a great time to announce “Bring Back the Light” special through the month of November. This is the time of year that our brains and bodies go into hibernation mode so I would love to offer a 10 % discount to new coach-ee’s who would like to keep a forward momentum through the fall.  Winter is not a time for hibernation, it’s a time for cultivation of spirit.  Let your dreams manifest over the next few months by honing in on your one and five year plans.  Set aside time to navigate your goals to get ready for spring launch.

Don’t hesitate to call for your free complimentary session.  It takes only a half hour and you can gain valuable skills to tackle a problem that you need help getting moving.  You are valuable and deserve to be vibrating at your highest so pick up the phone and call for your session.





Happy August!  How is your summer going?  I have a few shenanigans on the horizon. Starting in September, I will be teaching a “Writing For Healing” class through community education.  If you are interested, please email me and I will send you the information on how to sign up.  The cost is $40.00 per person and includes three sessions of writing prompts and assignments that follow each class. We will be using memoir and journal techniques to flesh out possible subjects you may be interested in developing.

Look for my painting “Broken Dream” to be displayed at the “Clean” show which has moved from a venue to online this year.  This exhibit is hosted by Your Arts Desire http://www.yourartsdesiremtka.com/  and features artists who tell their story of recovery and sobriety through works of art.  I will post details as I am informed of them.

I will be at the fall Art Crawl this year on October 14th through the 16th.  Stay tuned for details on this show.  I am going to try to also offer sample coaching sessions at this event so stay tuned.  ( http://www.saintpaulartcrawl.org/ )

The art bus is coming along nicely.  We managed to pull the seats out and started painting her.  Her name is “Kismet” because I still believe in magic.

Thank you for tuning in for an update.  It’s been a busy summer as I have had a lot of opportunities to display my artwork and the July twofer sessions went very well also for the sample coaching sessions.  I will be giving away another coaching session for the last two weeks of August so stay tuned for that as well.

Thank you and I appreciate you!


Coach Heather

I hope you are enjoying your summer.  I just wanted to check in and say hello to everyone.  I am full for June but I am looking to add one spot for a new coachee in July so if you know that you are worth living your life built from passion not regret, you have goals that you want to achieve and need a little help getting there, if you want some balance in your hectic schedule, or if you have a burning desire for change and are unsure where to start, you may benefit from having a personal coach.

I will help you define your short and long term goals.

I will help you get clear on your values and hold sacred space for you while you reflect on living your values.

We will have weekly check in’s.

We will co-design your plan of action.

I will not tell you what to do.  As a coach, I am trained to ask you important questions that will get the gears of your engine turning.  We don’t focus on the past but we create a present and future worth living for.

You will learn tools that create movement in your life; tools that you can use at any time once they become habitual.

I am a creative artist and have the ability to hone in on your individual learning style and will cater my coaching to fit your unique life and person.

Are you ready for change?  Then what is stopping you from placing that free coaching call?  I know you are worth living your life for you, not someone else.  You are worth feelings of contentment and happiness.  You can live the life that you have always dreamed of by making thoughtful decisions and actions.  Make it count! Make the call!

Thank you!

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.

Hello! It’s been awhile.

I have been on hiatus from writing for a long time and just coming back so please bear with me as I get back into daily writing prompt.  For today, focus on the moment.  Look for a new prompt tomorrow and I hope you are having a hopeful 2017.

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

Reaching Goals

What are your goals for this summer?  Are you looking to lose weight?  How much? By when? Do you have a trainer or someone to work out with?  Here are a few tips; keep your workouts exciting, do them often (three times a week cardio is what is recommended but I will say five to 6 times a day is more beneficial), and integrate weight training into your cardio.

Are you looking to produce more art?  Do you have a schedule mapped out? What times of the day are more productive for you?  What inspires you for new material?  What values are you trying to create in your art?  Political messages? Emotional?  How do you get to the visions you have in your head from where you are right now, today?

Are you a parent trying to get your child to cooperate but don’t know where to turn because you are short on time and support?  Do you wish you had more time with your children but are working too much and would like to change it?  I could assist in whatever goals you have with your children that will allow you to show up and be present with them and can give you daily tools to use to keep you focused on your parenting goals.

Do you have a burning desire to write that book you have wanted to write?  Do the ideas get caught in the wheels in your head and you get confused where to start and end up frustrated?  I could assist you with getting through the beginning stages of putting your ideas together and design a plan of action.

The mediums I use are of artistic origin and occasionally equine origin.  We can coach on the phone, in person, or with horses.  I am offering two sessions for the month of July for $10.00 because I believe in coaching, that it helps people shift, and that everyone should have equal access to personal coaching.  Whatever you strive for, I would love to help you realize your goals.

Mid July Spot Open

I still have  a weekly hour session available at the twofer one price for the remainder of July.  If you know a youngster that could use some motivation with help through the arts, or a single mom who could use some self nurturing through creative movement, or a musician that has reached writers block, or a care-giver that is looking to re-create himself/herself and transition to a new career, they may benefit from having a personal Life Coach.  Life Coaching is an amazing gift to give someone you love.  Life Coaching is not therapy, it is similar to a sports or singing coach only I hold space for you while you design goals that you would like to reach in the areas of personal development, action plan, living according to your values, and orchestrating a balanced life. This is my passion, I love to help people reach their full potential through the arts.  I am an artist.  I live and breathe art and I go through blocks just like many others do.  I have tools that can help create shift and get you moving towards your passion and fulfillment.
