What eight years of work looks like (and the new Desire Map cover reveal!)

studios notes< << BEFORE
This is eight years of my life on the floor in my studio.

After the culling, comes the pattern recognition. I collect all of the ideas on sticky notes, spread them across a few metres of paper and see what clusters. The key themes become clear. That became the “philosophical” material of The Desire Map.

For the actual “workbook” of The Desire Map, I went through volumes of writing from friends who had been my sweet lab experiments for the process. I came across this while pouring over notes: “D, This is fucking rad.” Which is just what you want to hear when you’re writing ’round the clock.

In December 2012 we launched The Desire Map program on my site. 10,000 people got to it in less than year. Sounds True Publishing steps up to take the book to bookstores and other countries in 2013, and to work with me to create new Desire Map audio programs.

Almost a year to the day later… THIS HAPPENS:

Brand new cover.

I got to see the new cover just a few minutes before I shot an interview with MarieTV. We rushed them the first copy so we could get it into the segment.

The “refreshed” Desire Map book will be accompanied by a full “collection”: a 2014 Day Planner + a Workbook + a Journal + 8 hours of new audio programs! The collection launches on my site only on December 3. And the book is released to the world on January 1, 2014.

It’s been a wild ride. Here’s more the behind-the-scenes:

You’re not chasing the goal itself. You’re actually chasing a feeling.

Dear God, help me out with the basics, would you-Danielle-LaPorte

Dear God, help me out with the basics, would you?

Show me how to love the ones that are like, really hard to love. The misogynists and boundary bullies, the fake leaders and land-rapers. Actually, for the sake of efficiency, just show me how to love the most greedy. That should cover it. (But while we’re at it, help me out with the Mean Girls, ‘cause like, whoa.)

How to hone your truth detector-Danielle-LaPorte

How to hone your truth detector.

There’s so much faking it to make it and deception happening in every sector of life — from politics to self-improvement. So how can we hone our truth detectors?

Women, boundaries, and spirituality. The perfect storm.

Women, boundaries, and spirituality. The perfect storm.

In my experience, boundary obliviousness is part of the initiation into wholeness. I don’t think you have to warrior your whole life for it, but it’s a passage to self-agency that most women seem to have to go through. Boundaries help us expand our consciousness.
