Coyote Moon was opened in June of 1989 by Michelle Walker (that’s me) with a bank loan and all of my savings. I had a dream of connecting my working life with my passion for the development of human potential. I wouldn’t have put it like that at the time (I was 26). I just knew I had a longing to be spiritually connected with my work, and wanted to be part of the healing of our human wounds, personally and collectively. My friends encouraged me to sell clothing because it was obvious to them that it was a love of mine.
A new business model emerged from the years of exploring healing, personal development, and spirituality. The foundation of this business is circular, rather than hierarchical, with the well-being of every staff person and customer at its center.
