How do you want to feel?

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.

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 office?

when you pick up the phone?

when you cash the check?

when you fall in love?

when you accept the award?

when you make the sale?

What if, first, we got clear on how we actually wanted to feel in our life, and then we laid out our intentions? What if your most desired feelings consciously informed how you plan your day, your year, your career, your holidays — your life?

You know what will happen with that kind of inner clarity and outer action? You’ll feel the way you want to feel more often than not. Decisions will be easier to make: You’ll know what to say no to and what to say hell-yes to. You’ll be more optimistic, more open-hearted. It will be easier for you to return to your center in the midst of a challenge.

Desire Map Workshop Level 1

What people are saying about The Desire Map

My biggest delight during the workshop was when each attendee claimed their Core Desired Feelings with the support, witnessing, and cheers of the entire group. We were literally surrounded by how we wanted to feel. So sacred and powerful. And after the workshop, I realized I had acquired a new core desired feeling of my own — I guess you can’t teach transformative work without being transformed yourself!

Pace Smith, Desire Map Facilitator

I am not a great public speaker, so the idea of speaking to a group of women was overwhelming at first. But then I remembered the quote: “Fear is just excitement without taking a breath.” So I just decided to make the jump and spend a little extra time preparing for the specific sections that I was a little insecure about, and it paid off. Everything has been great!

Lauren Dubinsky, Desire Map Facilitator

The simplicity of the workshop curriculum makes it dreamy to facilitate while the depth of the content creates a deep and meaningful impact for the participants. And personally, since becoming a Licensee, my level of business savvy has expanded and so has my impact.

Gemma Stone, Desire Map Facilitator

The support you get from Team D… the fact that they give you everything up front means that from Day One, you’re ready to go. It’s a huge time-saver, and it makes the process a lot more efficient.

Kate Swoboda, Desire Map Facilitator

Our workshop was filled with unexpected and unexplainable connections.  We were sisters by the end, as we learned from each other’s experiences and drew on each other’s energy. It was a weekend love, healing and moxie.

Brandi Buckman, Desire Map Workshop Participant

I was surprised to find that the tribe of women I met at The Desire Map Workshop helped me to open up and go deep — really deep, really fast. There was no judgement, no suggestion of how to feel. Sharing in that sacred space was powerful.

Twyla Dill, Desire Map Workshop Participant

Desire mapping in a group setting is powerful, inspiring, eye opening, tear inducing, full of laughter and a great source of connection.

Jessica Robson, Desire Map Workshop Participant

The clarity I have now (after the workshop) is amazing. I know how to do things differently from now on, to get to what I want to feel everyday.

Palomi Sheth, Desire Map Workshop Participant

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.

Marcy Cruice, 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.

Tracy Greene, Desire Map Workshop Participant

Incorporating movement with the work allowed me to “try on” the words/feelings and see how they felt in my body. When the poses were uncomfortable, my mind would go to words that I didn’t want to feel, and my mind went to the feelings I wanted when the practice felt good. My Core Desired Feelings are now much more powerful than they were when I did the work by myself.

Justine De Boer, Desire Map Workshop Participant

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

As a life coach (16+ years) and yoga instructor (7+ years), I enjoy witnessing the light go on in other people’s lives. The Desire Map is a tool that anyone can use to steer their lives according to the constellation of their core desired feelings. This work has profoundly impacted me and I’m ecstatic about sharing it with others.

Corey Stiles, Desire Map Workshop Participant

I jumped at the chance to become a licensee and having experienced the workshop myself, I am even more excited about helping more people live their life from desire instead of obligation. Everyone deserves a piece of this wisdom and to live a life they love.

I love how there is so much freedom to deliver the workshop in a way that is authentic to both The Desire Map and the facilitator. I am already brimming with ideas for how I can use my flair for creative visuals and graphics to help the visual learners in my workshops.


Beth Rivett-Carnac, Desire Map Workshop Participant

Leading the workshops has felt quite effortless, because you’re really just guiding a great, meaningful conversation. This work has a way of flowing (it goes deep but it gets there easily) that is quite unique.

Sandi Amorim, Desire Map Facilitator

The Desire Map Licensing Program has been the battery charge my business needed. Being part of this movement has given me exposure I wasn’t able to generate on my own.

L'Erin Alta, Desire Map Facilitator

The visibility I got from this association with Danielle’s brand was significant. At my second retreat, people flew in from Denver, Seattle, Texas… This was a much bigger reach than I’ve had with my other women’s retreats.

Alex Mazerolle, Desire Map Facilitator

Being a Licensee has helped me fully step into my role as a business owner, as the provider for my own needs – financially and otherwise.

Stephanie Watanabe, Desire Map Facilitator

I have not stopped talking about that weekend. The yoga gave me time to step away from the concentration of The Desire Map work, and let the ideas roll around in my mind without strain. This helped me understand what I was really searching for. Finding my Core Desired Feelings has really improved my life.

Adriana Koc-Spadaro, Desire Map Workshop Participant
