Lunch & Plan: Introduction to The Desire Map (Online)

Join me online for a new kind of lunch and learn. Lunch & Plan is an online introduction to The Desire Map: a guide to creating goals with soul. You’ll learn about The Desire Map process and how it can help you create your best year yet.

How do you want to feel when you wake up in the morning? When you get in the car? When you open the door at work? When you drop your kids off at school or take your dog for a walk? How do you want to feel when you walk into a room? Meet someone new? Have a creative breakthrough?


How do you want to feel?

This question posed by Danielle LaPorte in the best seller The Desire Map takes you to the heart of Desire Mapping and turns traditional goal setting inside out. Instead of talking about external goals, we talk about how we want to feel in the various parts of your life. Because when you get clear on how you want to feel, the pursuit of goals itself will become more satisfying.

Lunch & Plan: Introduction to The Desire Map (online) is an introduction the Desire Mapping process. I promise you will leave the call with one of your core desired feelings and a plan on how to use it every day as a planning tool. I’ll also share lots of worksheets to help you through the process.

The Desire Map: Level 2 (Ajax)


The Desire Map Workshop

Level 2: Intentions & Goals
Based on the best seller by Danielle LaPorte


You’re putting your Core Desired Feelings at the center of your life.

Yes, yes, you are.

You know how you want to feel. And you’ve got a really good idea of what you can do, have, and experience — and think and believe — to help yourself feel that way. Every day. Some people go their entire lives on an autopilot of do-get-do-get, but you’ve just cracked a code to wide-awake living.

Now it’s time to take aim and devote yourself to actualizing what you want the most.

The Desire Map Workshop Level 2 is the practical application of the core desired feelings that you identified in the Level 1 Workshop. This is where clarity meets action. In the next level of the Desire Map process, you will:


1. Explore perceptions of goals and goal-setting in relationship to ambition, external approval, and “success.”

Most people will identify at least one pattern of behavior related to goal-setting that has been restricting their capacity for freedom. In this workshop, we create a sacred space that will help you meaningfully reorient your relationship with goals into one that helps you do, have, and experience what you most desire to feel.


2. Identify a handful of goals or intentions that are aligned with your core desired feelings and create a plan to support them.

You may want not want to set any goals. You might want to set one hundred goals that are attached to precise measurables. All of that it totally good with me. I am here to support you in your journey.


Here’s the problem with traditional goal setting.

Intentions and goals are tools for liberation. So when we use goal chasing like a hammer, it can beat up on our self-esteem, relationships, and creativity. Setting the goal, pursuing it, and achieving the goal is supposed to feel good. If you’re going to set “goals to die by,” then, well, bless ya. But there is a better way…


Goals with soul.

When you are clear on how you most want to feel, you turn traditional goal setting inside out. Constant racing for success creates habitual and unconscious goal-setting. The Goals with Soul workshop is going to help you relearn how to move toward your dreams — with trust and well-placed devotion. The more you choose your core desired feelings over your external objectives, the more content you will become.

Go after the goals that nourish your spirit, with your core desired feelings  as the compass. Goals with Soul will energize you and, when you’re on track moving toward such goals, life will keep throwing synchronicities your way.

Feeling good is the whole point.

Book Review: My 4 biggest lessons from The Desire Map

I’ve been meaning to do a book review for The Desire Map for quite some time now. This is my kind of book review since it focuses on what I learned from the book. In my opinion, the best books have big life lessons.  And this book delivers BIG lessons.


I read The Desire Map, a book written by Danielle LaPorte, in 2015 shortly after being laid-off. I found it (it found me), right around the same time that I was trying to find myself (again. Or was I trying to re-define myself?)



Reiki precepts help develop leadership skills

In my previous post, I talked about how conducting Reiki self-treatment can help you at work. It can help you manage your stress level and become more self-aware which can help you stay at your peak. But Reiki self-treatments are just one element of learning and practicing Reiki.

Want to invest in your professional development? Consider Reiki.


So much has been written and said about Reiki as a healing tool (here’s an excellent introduction). But it can change your professional life as well. And I don’t just mean if you are a medical professional, like a nurse or first responder.
