news > A Desire Map Weekend Workshop: Level 1


On the weekend of March 14th and 15th, Stella Burchard and Sam Bianchini are leading a Desire Map Workshop! We hope you join us.


What is The Desire Map?

Simply, it’s a book written by Danielle LaPorte. The Desire Map is a holistic approach to life planning that uses your core desired feelings as the guidance system for your goal setting. It is an incredibly effective, strong, positive way to get clear, ground, and happily strive towards a positive, loving life that you deserve to live.

“Knowing how you actually want to feel is the most potent form of clarity that you can have. Generating those feelings is the most powerfully creative thing you can do with your life.” -Danielle LaPorte


What can I expect?

A two-day, in-person course for discovering your core desired feelings . . . and lighting up your life. Over the 2 days, we’ll have some time writing, riffing with each other, moving, and space to reflect. We have really been putting our hearts and minds into creating a fantastic weekend, combining the work of The Desire Map with yoga, movement, meditation, reiki, and community.

How do you want to feel? In your heart, your body, your career? When you wake up in the morning, when you speak your peace, when you go after what you want? 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 workshop 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” and goal setting. 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 five life areas to explore your most desired feelings in:

‣ Lifestyle & Livelihood

‣ Creativity & Learning

‣ Body & Wellness

‣ Relationships & Society

‣ Essence & Spirituality

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 stretch our minds with desire mapping, we’ll stretch our bodies with yoga and if we get stuck, we’ll shake it out with dance!

Come join us!



YEA, YOU DO. The workshop is limited to 12 spaces. We’ll meet from 1 pm to 5 pm each weekend day. Registration and payment through the Paypal button above. 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.
