Dance your way into eloquence as you court the river

"Leah lives in story, it resonates in her being – as a teller, as a writer/thinker, as an activist/world changer, as a contemporary artist rooted in the ancient. She knows the alchemy of myth and the miracle of life, and the tangible magic of language performed." -Joe Lambert


"Scott put my feet on a path of wild connection to place that was deeper than any I had ever before experienced, and has given me a sense of belonging in the community of plants and animals around me. And the journey has only just begun!”  -SL of Forest Knolls, CA 



"I loved every minute of it! Scott is a great teacher ~ knowledgeable, skillful, wise, humble..." -MK of Santa Barbara, CA

"I now have a renewed sense of confidence in my ability as a tracker. With Scott’s mentoring I was able to move through 'tracking walls' that previously would have discouraged me. Feeling grateful and satisfied." -MB of Sebastopol, CA 


"Kind yet firm, loving yet fierce, Leah expertly marries the magic with the mundane as she fluidly guides the unfolding of every soul's unique story. Her ears listen for the deeper currents flowing beneath the words and actions, her words call each participant more fully to life, her eyes sparkle with the radiance of aligned purpose, and her heart sings the siren song of remembrance and returning.


Leah's work is an imperative service to the great turning of our world and culture, and her devotion to the mystery invites all that work with her to step into their unique embodied expression of medicine and purpose... If you are ready for true transformation of the tales you tell and the germination of the seeds of growth within your soul, step into Leah's circle and surrender to the greater story that is longing to live through you.  -Hannah Jermstad

"The breeze at dawn has secrets to tell you.

 Don't go back to sleep.

You must ask for what you really want.

   Don't go back to sleep.

People are going back and forth across the doorsill

   where the two worlds touch.

The door is round and open.

   Don't go back to sleep."         ~Rumi
