White Hot Truth

Clarity for keeping it real on your spiritual path -
from one seeker to another.

Has your self-help become self-criticism?

White Hot Truth is a wise and often (hilariously) relatable exploration of the conflicts between spiritual aspiration and our compulsion to improve, from Oprah SuperSoul 100 member, Danielle LaPorte.

Danielle cheerleads seekers to fully own their wisdom by having a good laugh (and maybe a good cry) at all the ways we’ve been trying to improve on our self-improvement.

With all love and no apologies

Danielle takes a deep philosophical dive into:

  • The myths we fall for on our way to truth: The Lies of Inadequacy, Authority, and Affiliation.

  • Why “tolerance” as a so-called spiritual course of action can lead to insane loyalty and foolish compassion.

  • Signs that you Love yourself and how to not “slip out of your fullness and into your halfness.”

  • The “Discipleshit” that happens when we give our power away.

  • Conscious Optimism:  We’re all asking, “What can I do to help a hurting world?”

  • How to spot Spiritual Glamour, and the big difference between discernment and judgement.

  • Faux Freedoms: “If I’m ‘evolved’, do I have to want an open relationship?”  “If I’m a feminist, do I have to like porn?”  Um, no.

  • Boundaries for Spiritual People.

  • Being a super human instead of trying to be a superhuman. How to love the mundane on your way to the holy.

  • And thoughts on the complexity of forgiveness, sneaky self-loathing; and a “Soul-perspective” on suffering.

Danielle brings it home with the hottest truth of all: You are your own guru.

This is a provocative call to applying discernment to our inner and outer worlds. To see when we’re bypassing our own feelings, and when we’re falling for other people’s well-branded dogma. The searing refrain is both simple and surpassingly radical: “Our fulfillment stems from our motives. It’s not how we seek spiritual growth; it’s why we seek it.”


Danielle LaPorte’s White Hot Truth comes straight from the messy, complicated world of authentic life experience. She is a force field of energy, wonder, humour, and love.

Danielle LaPorte is a bright light in the modern priestesshood. She keeps it spiritual, she keeps it real, she keeps it good.

Our souls are yearning for Danielle’s liberating message—that discernment is crucial to our true spiritual freedom. She’s as compassionate as she is fiery, and every contemporary seeker will see themselves in her hard won—and very timely—White Hot Truth.

Searing grace! When Danielle LaPorte writes, there is nowhere to hide. White Hot Truth is an incendiary device for the soul. Raw, honest, funny, wise, it’s a portal to the part of you that’s always wanted to see the light of day, but never quite knew how to find its way out. Read it. Live it. Breathe it. Be it.

I devoured this book. The way Danielle questions our approach to self-actualization and reminds us what self-love truly looks and feels like is a revelation and a revolution. Let this book be your guide to what you already know in your bones but may have forgotten as you’ve traversed the crowded spiritual growth industry. Strip back the layers and remember the truth with a capital T.

This brave book is a substantial feast of truth singing and ecstatic wisdom delivered by a fierce spirit called Danielle LaPorte. Your heart will leap in recognition and your soul will rise up mightily and do mighty things.

I so appreciate Danielle’s bracing honesty. The voice, the courage, the heart. White Hot Truth is a powerful piece of work.

Danielle LaPorte never disappoints as this generation’s go-to truth teller and visionary, always leading by being ahead of the curve. She intuits what is needed and provides it at the exact right moment. This holds true for her newest sizzling book-baby, White Hot Truth. Danielle is empowering readers to trust their truth as she leads with her own vulnerability, wisdom, and wickedly good sense of humour. A must-read for these tumultuous times!

I love real language. Communication without it is a diversion. I also recognize real insight, it brings out your highest consciousness when you read it…it’s the “aha” that ignites you. White Hot Truth has all of this and far more…cover to cover.

Danielle’s voice is medicine for self-help fatigue and ambition overdrive. Her deep clarity and realness are a healing combination—and it’s right on time for our culture.

In White Hot Truth, Danielle LaPorte graces us again with her creativity and courage. I consider Danielle one of the embodiments of prophetess in the modern age—she’s a leader, a path-creator, and a vision keeper for hundreds of thousands of women in our time. Once again, she raises the lantern of powerful words to help us see through the fog, and illumine a way forward.

Danielle LaPorte addresses the central question of our generation: Why is spiritual progress so confusing, full of nonsense, and plagued by false gurus? She’s the fierce, daring, truth-slinging wingman we all need while on the authentic path of the soul. In her epic yet short book, I found the answers I’ve been seeking for decades.

Danielle lights the way in reconnecting people to their true voice and authentic self. Her words hold the power to validate, heal, and free the hearts and souls of womankind.

When we share our stories and our struggles and the overcoming, we give others an opportunity to see themselves and to see that we all go through so much. Danielle does just this in White Hot Truth. She shares her journey with humour and wisdom allowing us to break through as she explores the journey of an enlightened woman walking the path of the real life. I inhaled White Hot Truth and bow to Danielle and the voice she brings to all.
