The Desire Map Workshop Level 1: DISCOVERY

A two-day course

dedicated to


what you want most out of your life.

We have the procedures of achievement upside down. 

Every year we come up with our to-do lists, resolutions, bucket lists, and strategic plans — all the stuff we want to have, get, accomplish, and experience outside of ourselves. 

And here’s the heart of it all: All of those aspirations are being driven by an innate desire to feel a certain way.

So 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 make our resolutions? 

This is a brand new, holistic way of life planning.

Based on the best-selling book The Desire Map, we get straight to the heart of the matter: How you want to feel? At the end of this workshop, you will walk away with your Core Desired Feelings and use those to guide your life decisions in your career, your body, your creativity, your relationships, and your spirit.

This is a revolution in goal-planning from the heart.

Get clear on what you most want out of life and plan to make it happen. 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. (Feeling good is the whole point.)

We will create sacred space, inner and outer – an altar, backed by a great music playlist and tied together with shared intentions.

We’re going to burn limiting beliefs (figuratively, and maybe literally.)

We will offer up our own wisdom, relate, and learn from each other — like women (and some very cool dudes) always do.

You will make some soul-anchored declarations and attach them to some every day PLANS. Poetic to the practical.

As we go soul deep with Desire Mapping, we'll also renew our nervous systems with gentle yoga and the sounds of the Tibetan singing bowls, and see our visions come to life in large-scale collages.  

We will nourish our bodies with gorgeous, gluten-free, Ayurvedic meals and snacks crafted for us on-site by private chef and Ayurvedic wellness counselor, Carrie Dickson of  Our Stable Table(New to Ayurveda?  Click here to learn more)
