The Desire Map

Based on the best seller by Danielle LaPorte


We have the procedures of achievement upside down. Typically we come up with our to-do lists, our bucket lists, and our strategic plans — all the stuff we want to have, get, accomplish, and experience outside of ourselves. All of those aspirations are being driven by an innate desire to feel a certain way.

The Desire Map is a more heart-centered approach to making decisions. Research is coming to the mainstream that it is the heart that creates thoughts, not the other way around. So making decisions from the heart or intuition are truly holistic choices.

The Desire Map is a fresh soul-based approach to crafting goals.

What if we get clear on how we actually want to feel within ourselves, and then we design our to-do lists, set our goals, and write out our bucket lists?

  • How do you want to feel when you look at your schedule for the week?
  • When you get dressed in the morning?
  • When you walk through the door of your studio or your office?
  • When you pick up the phone?
  • When you cash the check, accept the award, finish your masterpiece, make the sale, or fall in love?

The Desire Map workshop begins with getting clear on what you already have in your life, what you are grateful for, and where you are dissatisfied. You’ll get clear on the root of your desire and create a map of how you desire to feel in five areas of your life. From that place of clarity, you’ll be guided to discover and declare your core desired feelings, all while being supported in a sacred, loving environment of other soul-seekers. Every activity and exercise supports you in discovering your core desired feelings.

How do you want to feel?

Feeling good along the way to your goals doesn’t mean you don’t work your ass off to get what you want. It means you joyously work your ass off. When you’re connected to the greater purpose of an intention — honoring the call of your heart, not just proving yourself — and there’s pleasure in the process, you can pull off some amazing feats. You are amazing.

Repeat that to yourself. Soul-centered living.

Take three long breaths after you close your eyes...

Soul-centered living.

That's what The Desire Map focuses on.

Do you:

Desire feeling good more than you want to check accomplishments off your list?

Desire feeling good more than you want to please other people?

Desire feeling good more than you want to look good?

What people are saying about The Desire Map:

“I desire mapped on my own before, but the group experience was radically different. It became a space for us to share, cry, laugh, and most importantly, to expand. And because I was so in it, I’m now bursting with ideas about how my own workshops will look, feel, smell, taste and sound. I’m honored to have been part of such a life-altering experience.”

Attending the Desire Map Workshop changed everything. I was so filled up when I left… So much gratitude. I can’t say enough about the experience. It was heaven.”

— Shawn Marie Turi
Desire Map Workshop Participant


“I’ve been through (and led) many leadership and growth workshops and I can honestly say The Desire Map workshop has been one of the most powerful I’ve experienced. The exercises, the journal time, the clear and encouraging facilitation and the support of the other participants all contributed to a stellar event.”

— Pamela Sampel
Desire Map Workshop Participant


“I do a lot and am successful at what I do. But the workshop helped me recognize that I’ve been stuck in survival mode – the joy in what I was doing wasn’t there. Getting in touch with the feelings that drive what I do takes me beyond survival and into thriving, which makes life so much sweeter.”
