Let's Talk About Your Life
Does your life feel the way you want it to feel?
When I read The Desire Map for the first time, my life was not feeling like I wanted it to. There was nothing from the outside worth complaining about...a wonderful job, working with tremendous human beings, earning a great living, enjoying a healthy life with those that I loved and enjoyed spending time with, but SOMETHING WASN'T RIGHT.
I am no stranger to burn out. I have spent the last 12 years creating a life where burn out is no longer an option. At 38 years old, I was your typical Type A personality-BURN & CHURN. Move that mountain? No problem. Leap that building while creating a sales campaign to capture a brand new market? No biggie. Travel 60-70% percent of the time at the same time? Sure! Whatever I had to do to get 'there' I did and I torched my insides in the process.
Getting off track is essential to our journey -Danielle LaPorte
The journey of coming back from that was a technicolor, 3-D adventure full of peaks and valleys. For the last many years I had a pretty good rhythm going. Things were smoothing out nicely, but there was still that little niggling soul calling. I had this overwhelming sense that I was missing out on something...that I wasn't using my divinely inspired gifts, and I wasn't being used for my soul's purpose. I was feeling "bleh", like "now what", "is this all there is", and "when am I going to make a positive, grass roots difference in the lives of others?". I knew from the gobs of transformational work I had done in the past that contribution was the largest game on the planet and I wasn't finding my own unique way on this path.
Enter; The Desire Map
I was trolling through my inbox one morning, looking for a bit of inspiration, when I noticed that Marie Forleo was interviewing Danielle LaPorte on MarieTV. Didn't have a clue who she was. In all of 10 minutes, I was hooked...riveted to my computer screen. What Danielle was saying was so compelling because it was ON POINT. I felt it in my bones. The rest is history and that moment was over a year ago. The Desire Map was the catalyst for change that I needed.
The book isn't just intellectual theory, it actually walks you through the process of practically (+soulfully) creating a life that you actually want to live, connected to people, experiences and anything that you actually want to be connected to.
It seems so obvious right? Life should feel good!
But the thing is, so many of us aren't living that way. We're fixated on what others think we should do. We're pushing ourselves to meet someone else's vision of The Great Mom, The successful Business Woman, The Patient Wife, or The Forgiving Friend.
In all that striving to meet other peoples expectations, we've lost ourselves. I've lost myself and found myself more times than I care to count. The Desire Map snapped me out of it, that "asleep at the wheel" mode of operation. I have used The Desire Map to stop the last bits of workaholism, rigidity, restlessness, purposelessness, busyness, and critical-crap-type leftovers from my day-to-day life. Instead, I'm focused on what works for me because I'm clear on how I want to feel. To boil it all down. I'm enjoying the journey instead of just 'getting there'. My life is on track moving towards a future that feels right for me.
Because of the profound impact Desire Mapping has had on my life, I want you to have the opportunity to reclaim your life or the parts and pieces of it that don't feel quite right. Desire Mapping works, plain and simple. I've seen it work in my own life and in the lives of many others.
We've got the procedures of achievement upside down. We go after stuff we want to have and accomplish outside of ourselves, and we hope and pray that we'll feel great when we get there. It's backwards. And it's burning us out. -Danielle LaPorte
The Desire Map Workshop-Level 1
Is a program for clarifying what you truly want in every area of your life, and using that powerful awareness to guide your choices from now on. You will leave this retreat knowing your “core desired feelings” – a guidance system for your decision-making. A GPS for your soul.
We’ll look at our perceptions around “feelings”. We’ll examine how we drive and strive, and see where in our lives we experience freedom — and where we want more of it.
You will be guided through 5 life areas, to explore your most desired feelings in:
- Lifestyle + Livelihood
- Creativity + Learning
- Body + Wellness
- Relationship's + Society
- Essence + Spirituality
We will create sacred space, inner and outer. We’re going to burn limiting beliefs. We will offer up our own wisdom, relate, and learn from each other. You will make some soul-anchored declarations and attach them to some every day PLANS. Poetic to the practical.
DATE: Saturday & Sunday, April 9th & 10th, 2016
TIME: 10 a.m. - 6 p.m.
PLACE: Dallas, Texas. Details and address forwarded when you sign up.
What the Workshop includes:
- A delicious lunch, snacks and beverages both days
- Desire Map Workbook
- Soulful gifts to keep you connected to your experience
- An opportunity for new friendships
Fee: $375 if registered 14 days prior to event, $398 anytime after. UST be signed up before the start of the workshop!
Desire More? Ya, You do.
The workshop is limited to 15 spaces. Don't wait.
Note : Plan for aha’s and alleluias. After declaring their core desired feelings, people have been known to make changes. You may quit stuff, launch something, stand up, shine brighter, ask for more. You may feel the way you’ve always wanted to.
I'd like you to help uncover those feelings so you can start building a life that helps you generate them.
Can't make it to my next workshop? There will be more to come! Add your name to stay in the know on all things Desire...
