Q & A

Q: What are your Core Desired Feelings?

FREE
RADICAL

Q: How / where did you Desire Map? What did you love about doing it that way?

I Desire Mapped for the first time very shortly after the Desire Map book came out. It was over a holiday and I had a few days of undisturbed focus time. I plowed through the book and exercises with passion and excitement. I was at home, in my favorite chair, with Bach and Beats Antique playing in the background. (I prefer to work with instrumental music as it doesn't pull my focus.)

Q: Tell me a specific story about how knowing your CDFs has changed your life.

Knowing my CDF's is critical for me as a person who used to take on too much and end up way overworked. Being clear on what is important to me helps me (politely and kindly) say no to things every day. This leaves more time for what I love and value and for what makes me FEEL loved and valued. Saying NO with laser like precision is a HUGE gift of being clear on my CDF's.

Q: Why are you passionate about sharing this work with others?

Since reading all of Danielle's work (including The Big Beautiful Book Plan, The Fire Starter Sessions, and The Desire Map) I have shared her wisdom with friends and colleagues. It is a no-nonsense way to get to the root of ANY problem and solve it based on what is most important. It is flawless in it's simplicity and effectiveness. I get so excited working with people and they get so excited as they see how empowered they can be over their own destiny. The Desire Map is not a solution that one slaps over their problems and wears like a mask, it is a methodology wherein the person doing the work creates their own ensemble from the roots up.

Testimonials

Deborah created a safe, sacred space for me to explore my heart's desires. Each session began with a lovely guided meditation that put me completely at ease. With her gentle guidance, I could tune out the head chatter and listen to my heart. Working with her was a rich and joyful experience. I highly recommend her to anyone wanting to do this work.

Joyce Jensen, Oregon, USA

Deb's thoughtful guidance and insights allowed me to reconnect with myself and create clarity about how I want to feel. Deb masterfully creates a safe space for Desire Mapping. I felt challenged, inspired, and completely energized by all of the exercises and meditations she led me through. I highly recommend her to anyone wanting to do this work.

Lindsey Interlante, North Carolina, USA

When I began working with Deb, I thought my issue was organization. She drew out the emotional underpinnings of what was happening and provided space for my conflicting emotions about creativity to emerge and resolve. I recommend this work for anyone struggling with motivation, creativity, resistance, or simply to improve general life satisfaction.

Ridge Cresswell, New York, USA

I found Deb to be warm, supportive, and informative. She guided me through the exercises, often starting with meaningful poems or mediations. Deb enabled me to successfully define my CDF's in a way that was comfortable and productive. I know I wouldn't have been able to do this on my own and am so thankful that my seeking brought me to Deb.

Desire Map for the Actor – developing an authentic character

Led By: Deborah Linehan
Desire Mapping is a powerful potion for us as entrepreneurial performers and as people but have you considered how enlightening the Desire Map methodology can be as a tool for exploring the layers of a character? We are taught to embrace the motivation of our character based on physical desires, material gains but what about the deep emotional underpinnings that serve as a compass? How solid could your character be if not simply swayed by desires conjured from outside forces but if powerfully moved by their Core Desired Feelings? As an actress/director I know how intensely we dive into our characters and how useful this work can be for your performance as well as your career. I work one on one with actors via skype over a 2 month period. The schedule will be determined by us and one that works within your busy life and bbudget Contact me deb@deborahlinehan.com to discuss further.
