Desire brewing. My big announcement with Hiro Boga.

The details behind the launch of my brand new program “Desire,” finding flow in the creative process and a promise made that you will want to hear. Find it all in conversation with Hiro Boga– writer, teacher and creator of Become Your Own Business Adviser.

A highlight:

HB: Since you are working on this program on desire, would you tell me something about how that began? What calls to you, how do you respond to that call, how do you choose this project as opposed to all the other things that might be calling to you?

DL: Well, “Desire,” in particular, has been sitting there for about five years and I was actually writing this book before I was writing THE FIRE STARTER SESSIONS. What I’m noticing now, far enough into my creative career, is that it almost feels like there’s a queue. There’s a line-up of projects. They have a line-up of babies waiting to come in.

I have learned to pay attention to the one who’s talking the most and the loudest.

Then another pattern of mine… I don’t think it works this way for everybody but once I’m a YES, I’m an immediate YES. Like when I got the idea for Fire Starter I walked downstairs into the kitchen and said to my husband, I’m launching something called the Fire Starter Sessions. It’s going to be an online program. I’m going to do it in three months. I’m done. And then I emailed my assistant at that time saying, so this is what we’re doing. This is all within an hour. The next morning, I announced it on all my social media and my website. I picked the Wednesday. There’s no turning back after that.

HB:
So you make a really public commitment to that.

DL:
Always. I’m about to– I mean today, actually. Here we go. Another surprise, something sacred with Hiro.

This is my most official, official announcement that we will be launching the “Desire” program. The current subtitle of the program is the Map to What You Truly Want and it will launch either late November or the first week in December of 2012. It will be unlike anything out there. It’s going to be gorgeous.

HB: Wow.

DL:
I just decided this yesterday. It’s been brewing.

HB: So for you, setting that intention in a really public way actually activates all the skills and resources and both internal energy and external energy to make it happen. Is that right?

DL: Yes, two things happen. One, I can’t wait to give it. I would say that to everybody. You’ve got to feel like this kind of urgency. It has got to have that- you know that feeling where you find just the right gift for somebody. It’s like that Christmas or Hanukkah or whatever you’re feeling and you can’t wait for them to open it. Oh my god, I can’t wait. Open it! I know we haven’t had dinner yet but open your gift!

I want to feel that way with every project. I really want to tell everybody. And magic things happen when you put a stake in the material world. This is my land and this is the date and watch what happens.

[LIGHT WORK] An intimate Q&A episode. It’s deep, it’s lite, I hope it’s alllll right.

If God is in the details, then the Soul is in a good Q&A. And that’s the substance of Podcast #4: Beliefs, Movies & Man Crushes. Your questions make it so easy for me to rant and offer some (hopefully) useful how-to’s and tricks of the trade. The “trade” being discernment and devotion. It’s deep, it’s lite, I hope it’s alllll right.

In a nutshell: I’m hot for hot man feminists who work (in their own way) to make the world a better place. Service is a huge turn on for me.

[LIGHT WORK] The service of joy, especially in these times

I’ve talked to rabbis, and priests, and monks, and people who I consider to be high esoteric practitioners. I’ve figured out a few things about joy… and I’ve woven them into this week’s episode of LIGHT WORK.

[LIGHT WORK] We can’t get to the light, until we understand the suffering.

I’ve struggled for a long time with wondering if pain and suffering were essential to growth. Are they essential to me being a more expanded, clear minded, loving, joyous, sexy human being? Do I have to hurt to get there? Well, I fucking hope not… but I haven’t figured out a way around suffering yet.

[LIGHT WORK] The upside of suffering… sort of.

You see, there is suffering in the sensitivity. It hurts to feel. And we’re raised to strive—to desensitize—and it’s killing us. I think the strength is in opening. That opening to feel is where resiliency is born.

[LIGHT WORK, Ep. #1] Friends, Lovers, and Therapy5

[LIGHT WORK] The union. The bliss. The bind…Friendship is EVERYthing.

I want to go deep into this conversation about creating Fulfilling Friendships. I’ve got lots to say about engaged listening, self respect, breaking up (when necessary), and celebrating our friend-loves. I’ve also got plenty of opinions and practices for self-compassion, deep spiritual devotion, healthier relationships with our damn phones, and better quality sleep.

[LIGHT WORK] Friends, Lovers, and Therapy

I asked about a zillion people what they wanted more of in their lives. The #1 craving, by far: more fulfilling FRIENDSHIPS. We’re connection starved, we know this. Let me give you a peek into my own circle. In this first episode of LIGHT WORK, I use my own friends as how-to examples for creating radical support and sweetness in your life.

Do not doubt the wisdom of your rage

Do not doubt the wisdom of your rage. (inspired by recent events)

Popularity isn’t always true power. Money isn’t always success. Experience does not guarantee wisdom. Question it all. And do not doubt the wisdom of your rage.

GOOD MANNERS and some wuv. We could all use more of them-feature

GOOD MANNERS and some wuv. We could all use more of them.

There are still some basic good manners that should prevail no matter our generation, station, or affiliation. Here’s what it might mean to be classy, kind, and considerate whenever you are able (and we are almost always able).

I made something new for you. For US.

The LIGHT WORK series will unfold over six episodes. These are girlfriend-style sermons on serving the world while staying sane, cosmic connectedness over tech addiction, self compassion and more fulfilling friendships. Poetry. Hilarity. Peeks into the personal.
