Q & A

Q: What are your Core Desired Feelings?

Passion, Creativity, Inspiration, Ease, Vibrance, Bliss... and Joy!

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

I began the Desire Map after my first run with The Firestarter Sessions. I chipped away during periods of transition with my career, during a sabbatical in Costa Rica, and then completing during the fruition of my current business.

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

Love what you do, do what you love. It's the entire reason I left corporate jobs {twice}, industries that weren't intrinsically rewarding, salaried positions, and the hamster wheel of lost passion. My Core Desired Feelings have helped form my business and relationships to be full of love, inspiration, and vitality.

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

My world has shifted dramatically since surrounding myself with passionate, motivated, creative, joyous souls daily. I love sharing that opportunity with others, to collaborate and celebrate our happiness together!

Kalyn Mould

I completely caught a high from the organic energy and lively personalities. It was a weekend complete with bonding, meditation, yoga, dance, soul searching, round table talk, organic lunch, and tea!

Tianna

It was an exciting event. A great facilitator and wonderful attendees. It was a balance of individual activities, speakers, yoga and interactive group activities - a great experience. My greatest takeaway was how identifying my core values has helped bring focus to me on a day-to-day basis.

Randee

The event was amazing , amazing, amazing. Nicole taught me a lot by example- she is a strong, smart, spiritually minded entrepreneur. Makes me feel it is all possible.

Jennifer Iserloh

It was so well done. Nicole's space is incredible. You are immediately relaxed in her lounge and the yoga studio is serene. She made each step of the workshop comfortable and satisfying. Everyone was made to feel so welcome and relaxed. Overall, one of the best workshops I have ever attended.

Mandy

I was intrigued to go to this event, because I knew nothing about the Desire Map. It was inspiring, motivating, and awakening to how I'm actually living versus how I desire to live. My greatest takeaway is that it's never to late to go after my dreams, because I'm limitless!

Steph

Love self-growth, inspiring, motivational seminars. Learned Nicole was facilitating the class. She's admirable, reputable and has a great location! Loved how she incorporated different aspects to this wonderful weekend such as Yoga, the art and special guest speakers! Realized my present core feelings and how to go about living them!

Create your life with pure and powerful intention. What goes into your cupboards and closets, what goes into your body, the people you spend time with, the gifts you give, how you worship, the thoughts you focus on. Clutter is a choice. Anger is a choice. Resentment is a choice. But so are spaciousness, flexibility, laughter, compassion, tenderness, and resilience.

Empowered choices are the choices that take your body, mind, and spirit into consideration. My wish for you is that making these empowered choices comes easily to you. That?s why I?m inviting you to my Desire Map Workshop - Level 1: Core Desired Feelings.

In this workshop, inspired by the best seller The Desire Map by Danielle LaPorte, we?re going through a soul-heart-body experience that helps you feel good. Every day. Because knowing how you want to feel is one of the most important forms of clarity you can have.

You know what happens when that kind of inner clarity meets outer action? You?ll feel the way you want to feel more often than not. Decisions will be easier to make. You?ll know when to say ?No, thank-you? and ?Hell, yes!? You?ll be more optimistic, more openhearted. Your life will ease up on the grinding and and fill up with more?ease.

You are here to design a life that feels good: when you wake up, when you go to work, when you cook dinner, create something. The Desire Map has changed the way I live my life, and I am so thrilled to share this experience with you.?

I?d be honored to support you in doing everything that makes you come alive at my next workshop.?

Resolutions out. Revolutions in.

Resolutions out. Revolutions in.
A 2017 DESIRE MAP-INSPIRED WORKSHOP

Join fellow creative, seeking, inspired, empowered, and passionate souls for the first Desire Map Workshop of 2017 at Wild Ginger Apothecary: Studio + Lounge. Set goals with soul for the year ahead. All levels are welcome: whether you've explored the Desire Map, taken Level 1 or 2, or are just intrigued.

We have the procedures of achievement upside down. Every New Year's, we come up with our to-do lists, resolutions, bucket lists, and strategic plans - all the stuff we want to have, get, accomplish, and experience outside of ourselves. And here's the heart of it all: All of those aspirations are being driven by an innate desire to feel a certain way.

So what if this year, we get clear on how we actually want to feel within ourselves, and then we design our to-do lists, set our goals, and make our resolutions:

How did you want to feel when you wake up on January 1st?
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 studio or your office?
When you pick up the phone?
When you cash the check, accept the award, finish your masterpiece, make the sale, or fall in love?

How do you want to feel?

"Resolutions out. Resolutions in." is a two-day in-person workshop for discovering what you want most out of your life. This is a brand new, holistic way to set New Year's resolutions - with soul. Based on the best-selling book The Desire Map, we get straight to the heart of the matter: How you want to feel? At the end of this New Year's workshop, you will walk away with your Core Desired Feelings and use those to guide your life decisions in your career, your body, your creativity, your relationships, and your spirit. This is a revolution in goal-planning from the heart.

GET CLEAR ON WHAT YOU MOST WANT OUT OF LIFE IN 2017 AND PLAN TO MAKE IT HAPPEN

Desire feeling good more than you want to check accomplishments off your list.
Desire feeling good more than you want to please other people. Desire feeling good more than you want to look good.

CREATE YOUR NEW YEAR?S RESOLUTIONS WITH SOUL.

You deserve: eye contact , smiles in the morning, food made with pure intention, clean drinking water, fresh air, Hello, Please, Thank-you, time to think about it, a chance to show them what you're made of, a second chance, an education, health care - including dental, intimacy, weekends off , eight hours of sleep, play before work, to change your mind, to say no, to say yes, to have your deepest needs met, to be seen, to be loved for who you really are.

You deserve all of this - and more - just because you showed up to life.

Practical Soul is a two-day in-person workshop for discovering what you want most out of your life. Based on the best-selling book The Desire Map, we get straight to the heart of the matter: How you want to feel? At the end of this workshop, you will walk away with your Core Desired Feelings and use those to guide your life decisions in your career, your body, your creativity, your relationships, and your spirit.

Something magical happens when you focus on creating your core desired feelings:

-You remember your light, your true nature, your source ? the life source that connects us all.
-You use your preferred feelings as a guidance system for making choices and for being more present and alive.
-You are able to access comfort and clarity during painful times.
-You accentuate the positive aspects of your life, while still honoring, and not invalidating, the negative parts that you want to change.

GET CLEAR ON WHAT YOU MOST WANT OUT OF LIFE AND PLAN TO MAKE IT HAPPEN

The Desire Map workshop begins with getting clear on what you already have in your life, what you are grateful for, and where you are dissatisfied. You'll get clear on the root of your desire and create a map of how you desire to feel in five areas of your life. From that place of clarity, you'll be guided to discover and declare your core desired feelings, all while being supported in a sacred, loving environment of other soul-seekers. Every activity and exercise supports you in discovering your core desired feelings.

When you're planning your yearly goals, holiday plans, building your career,
you?ll have your core desired feelings in mind.

When you're choosing whom to invite, how to react, what to give,
you'll have your core desired feelings in mind.

When you're in pain, when you want things to be different, when choosing how to act,
you'll have your core desired feelings in mind.

When you go to sleep at night and when you wake up in the morning,
you'll have your core desired feelings in mind.

DESIRE MORE? YA, YOU DO.
