The Desire Map: Level 1 (Richmond Hill)


The Desire Map Workshop

Level 1: Core Desired Feelings
Based on the best seller by Danielle LaPorte


The Desire Map is a holistic approach to planning and living your life based on how you want to feel.


So, tell me how do you want to feel?

That’s the question we will explore in this Level 1 one-day intensive, because the answer is at the heart of every single decision you make. Knowing how you to want to feel is one of the most important forms of clarity you can have. And clarity like that brings purpose.


The Desire Map Level 1 is a one-day workshop for women who want to:

  • Make decisions with more clarity and a lot less guilt.
  • Feel joyful, fulfilled, and purposeful.
  • Live each day from a place of ease, clarity, and joy.


Is that you? Are you ready?

Join a circle of women just like you who are searching for confidence, purpose, and joy. During our day together, you’ll have an opportunity to re-connect and re-discover your voice and truth through journaling and group discussions. This is a one-day workshop with compassionate straight-talk. We’ll hold space for one another and I’ll share Usui Reiki energy with the group to help us stay grounded and centered.


Everything starts with a grateful heart

So we start with gratitude and joy, the kind of deep joy and gratitude that is contagious. Then we divide our life into 5 areas to get specific:

  • Lifestyle + Livelihood
  • Creativity + Learning
  • Body + Wellness
  • Relationships + Society
  • Essence + Spirituality


Together we get clear on what’s working and what’s not, what’s missing and what to let go of. Then we share our desires and dreams for each of the life areas, and that’s when our Core Desired Feelings start to emerge.


At the end of this one-day intensive, you’ll walk away with your Core Desired Feelings and how to use them to guide decisions in your career, your body, your creativity, your relationships, and your spirit. This is a revolution in goal-planning from the heart.


Bottom line:

You’ll get clear on what you want most out of life and have a plan to make it happen.

Productivity that feels good: Taming the to-do list

Blog post: Productivity that feels good @ MCL ConsultingRight off the top: I am a planner. But I’m also a recovering perfectionist. My planning, to do list, and goal-setting can easily turn into perfectionist tendencies if I’m not super aware and vigilant.


I love a good to do list. I love to cross stuff off that list. It’s so satisfying, right?

My 3 lessons learned about perfectionism

from a recovering perfectionist


Perfectionism has come up several times these past few weeks. (Or is it months? If I’m going to publish this, it should be accurate so which is it? I could sit here for a few minutes and try to remember more accurately, but if I stop writing another idea could pop in my head. Or I could fall down a rabbit hole of Instagram posts while trying to track my conversations on perfectionism and this piece would take months to write, or maybe not get written at all. Forget it. It’s not that important, so what was I saying again? Oh yeah, perfectionism.)

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?)



Close the year

There are only a few days left in this year – most people I know are cheering.

Are you ready to put the year behind you? Looking forward to starting the near year? I suggest that you use the time between Christmas and January 1 to close the year.

I love September. It’s a great new beginning.


September is the new January

Kids are off to school to start a new grade with a new teacher and in a new classroom. They have new pencils and new notebooks. They are going to make new friends and learn new things.

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.

Fear is a teacher

100dayswithoutfear found me this morning thanks to the not-so random Facebook newsfeed. Some Internet algorithm decided that I needed to hear about this (and an adorable dance off between the groom and his mother at his wedding reception). Thank you, Internet. You are so right.

Michelle, a New Yorker, is sharing her journey as she explores 100 of her fears. She is facing them one at a time, documenting and blogging about them. Each blog post has a video of her facing the fear, some details and an emoji rating about her stress during the experience. Some of the fears she has tackled are: a day without her cellphone, getting her ears pierced, and sky diving (gulp).

A few things really peaked my interest: the emoji ratings, the fears she was facing, and the Internet response.
