Q: What does it mean to you to be a Desire Map Facilitator?

The WORLD! Honestly, I feel like the luckiest woman alive to be a facilitator of this life-changing and valuable experience. I have transformed because of it, and have seen so many do the same. To me, it’s a gift: I was universally brought towards it, and feel as if I have been called upon to help spread the message and soulful meaning of The Desire Map with so many others. THIS is deep stuff — it’s life changing, and it is what we have to do to connect with our higher purpose in life. And beyond that, it’s about finding our true happiness. With every event and coaching experience, it gets better every time. I learn more about myself, help and inspire others, and those who participate offer me their gift of experiencing this with me, opening their hearts up and looking in.

As a facilitator, I see myself as the permission “tapper” — that is, I allow them to access the permission they need to know that it’s ok to have what you want in your life, it’s ok to let things go, it’s ok to say yes and to say no. If we want to live a certain way, we can ignite that, we can create that, we can spark that into reality. The path to getting there is through The Desire Map, which is truly soul work.

Q: What makes The Desire Map such a powerful tool for coaches?

Besides being PURE MAGIC, what I really love about it is that you can still tailor the experience to each person based on their specific needs.

I take good time with the Gratitude and Dissatisfaction exercises, and then we dive into the “How do you want to feel?” section, which, depending on the person, may take some time. The creativity that you can add to the experience is endless. This is the part that allows you to bring in your personality, helps people see you as a coach, and allows people to see The Desire Map as the tool that helps them have the life that they have always wanted.

Q: As the creator of Soul Sync Wellness, you also work with people one-on-one, blog, host workshops, retreats, and go on speaking gigs. How does being a Desire Map Facilitator support you in this work?

I have been able to be a better entrepreneur and feel more aligned with my own purpose and passions, all because of my CDFs. As I have felt more inspirational, intuitive, creative, abundant, and balanced, I have evolved and have attracted more opportunities that are in alignment with my passions, feelings, and desires.

I’ve worked with college students for more than a decade, coached over 1,000 students, and organized programs to help them transition successfully into college. I began testing The Desire Map with students who were not sure about their major or just plain unhappy with where they were, and discovered a common theme with these students: a lack of confidence, in themselves and in the choices they had made.

This past year, I developed a workshop called “Stand Up with Confidence, featuring The Desire Map.” I started asking students specific questions surrounding their beliefs about confidence and introduced them to The Desire Map model, gratitude/dissatisfaction exercise, and also to the “How do you want to feel?” exercise. Together, we were able to see how their CDFs connected (or didn’t) with their “genius areas” — in this case, their major or career — and many students have discovered study areas that are more aligned with their true desires. This workshop seriously was one of the best I have ever done, and I’m now in the process of wanting to expand and facilitate it with so many more.

Soul Sync Wellness is about helping people get to the core of their purpose in life, the raw core. When we take people out of their environments, their work, the stresses of life, we can peel back the layers that have covered or blocked our successes. Those layers may include health issues, unhappiness, feelings of not being good enough, stress, anxiety, guilt, weight, etc. When we open ourselves up to The Desire Map, we begin to connect with our vulnerable side, speak our truth, acknowledge what is, and move forward with our CDFs. We use them as a guiding force to take our reborn self into a whole new life.

Q: What is your most cherished memory of being a Desire Map Facilitator?

There are so many amazing moments that I can talk about! Each retreat is so different, yet the outcome feels the same.

One cherished memory I have was when I had the first man ever attend one of my retreats. He is now one of my biggest cheerers and facilitates the yoga experience at every retreat I hold. Another cherished memory was when a retreat participant messaged me, months after the retreat, to tell me that she had found the love of her life and finally addressed the issues she had with her mother — and the retreat was the start of it all. Most recently, I received this message from one of my coaching clients: “I feel on top of the world today, and I love this process and honestly realizing so much about myself.” I love moments when someone brings their sister to attend because she needs the love and support to make a change in their life. And by the end, they are writing each other supportive notes, hugging and saying “I love you” to each other. Every memory is cherished for me, and to know that I have the gift of sharing it with so many truly makes me feel like the luckiest woman.

Testimonials from workshop attendees

The Desire Map, including both the reading section and the workbook section, took me months to complete. I also attended one of Connie’s Desire Map Retreats, where I was able and encouraged to take the time necessary to identify my Core Desired Feelings. The retreat was an enlightening experience that connected all the dots for me. It solidified for me that, in order to grow and make progress in our lives, we must take the first step in giving ourselves permission to expand.

As cliché as it sounds, this lifestyle is a way of living the life you’ve always desired. Discovering your “purpose” is not found in a secret formula or in a chant you must perform. It’s all within you. And I don’t know about you, but having the power to decide to live a fulfilling, authentic and intentional life, is all the empowerment I need.”

“Working through The Desire Map and coaching with Connie has changed my life in an amazing way. Connie has been patient, supportive and inspirational during the challenging and enlightening moments of the process. The Desire Map coaching program has allowed me to reset, refocus, and rediscover who I am, and working with Connie has given me strength I didn’t know I had within.

Defining my Core Desired Feelings helped me realize what I already was capable of while providing clarity on what is most important to me. Prioritizing my core desired feelings of peace, strength, confidence, loved, and energized makes every day full of pride and happiness based on who I am instead of what I do.”

“Too often in life we find ourselves stuck. We settle for what we think we need, not what we want. We do this year after year only to wake up one morning to realize we have died inside. And eventually we’ll end up regretting our choices. Jim Carrey once gave a beautiful graduation speech. In it, he told the story of his father, a man who did what he had to do. It was a beautiful, inspiring story and ended with a great question: “You can still fail at the things you don’t want to do, so why not try to do the things you do want to do?”

This is what this retreat is all about. Permission to find your you. The unapologetic, raw you that lights your soul on fire. At the retreat there’s no judgment, only positive energy. Connie taps into your innermost feelings and the results might surprise you. It’s gut-wrenching, emotional, and inspiring at the same time. Chances are, you’ll meet wonderful people and see their awe-inspiring transformations. If you want to see where this beautiful little thing called life can take you – fully, unabashed, positively – then be a part of this retreat. You already have everything you need. This is an amazing, eye-opening experience. Don’t overthink it. Just for once — free yourself and see what happens.”
