Q & A

Q: What are your Core Desired Feelings?

sparkling // there's a lightness in my actions, an excitement is bubbling up, rolling laughter, there's always something to celebrate.

divine // I trust, I know and there is so much I don't know, stillness, reverence, magic, faith, infinite love.

balanced // dark + light, heart + head, wholeness, giving + receiving, death + birth, come + go, circles round.

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

I read the first half of The Desire Map in a matter of weeks. I underlined passages. I highlighted it. I drew in it. I dog eared it and sticky noted all over it. I nodded and smiled in deep knowing. Sometimes I closed it and patted it in appreciation. Other times I left it open and walked away so I could digest it all.

The second half of the book was different. That was the work part. I knew if I didn't do the work, it would be like the other "self-help" books that I'd read - full of excellent ideas, memorable quotes, and fuel for journaling. But not transformational. I knew I needed to do the work.

I did the work alone with my journal. I wrote, reflected and gave myself Reiki. It took a month. When I finished the work, I started sharing the book with close friends. We all loved it. We talked about it. I shared my CDFs. I created Pinterest boards and collected images. It was affirming and energizing.

But then a friend asked, now what lady? Uh I don't know, was my reply. And that's where I can help you.

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

Doing the work in The Desire Map has changed me. I have gained clarity and have a stronger sense of purpose in my life. I craved this kind of clarity, but didn't know how to go about it. I had read and loved other goal-setting/life purpose books. But I couldn't integrate them into my life. Until now.

I use my core desired feelings every day. I ask myself, does doing this help me move towards feeling sparkling, divine or balanced?

Answering YES to that question is life affirming and exhilarating. Saying NO. Well, that's scary. And that's where I can help you.

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

I know that doing this work can transform your life. I've experienced it and I've seen it. And you can do it too.

But you have to be willing to do the work. It's not easy, but I know that you can do it. And I know the work will always be filled with joy. I'd love to be there with you. I can help by asking questions, facilitating discussions, and offering Reiki. But you have to be willing to do the work. We can do this together.

Testimonials

Mellissa asked many thought provoking questions and inspired me to believe my goals are achievable. I had several A-HA moments.

Jill B.

I want to start living from the inside out. I thoroughly LOVED this workshop! Mellissa was such a great facilitator. Her pace was perfect and gave us plenty of time to dig deep and feel relaxed. This was an incredible experience. THANK YOU!

Margaret A.

The workshop was very informative and gave me lots to think about. My greatest takeaway is that even a core desire can be a bit overwhelming to work toward and that is okay. Mellissa was a great facilitator!

Carrie C.-B.

The Desire Map: Level 2 Intentions + Goals

Led By: Mellissa Last
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 this 6-week virtual workshop, you will:

  • Explore perceptions of goals and goal-setting in relationship to ambition, external approval, and success.
  • Identify a handful of goals or intentions that are aligned with your core desired feelings and create a plan to support them.

The Intentions + Goals 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.

Your core desired feeling are your compass. Come learn how to use them and create goals with soul.

The Desire Map: Level 1 Core Desired Feelings

Led By: Mellissa Last
Join me for a soulful, nourishing, invigorating one-day retreat.

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.
