A one-year soul support program with Danielle LaPorte

LIGHTER

MORE SACRED, MORE SANITY, LESS OF EVERYTHING ELSE.

Register Now

This is for the deep-thinking, deep-feeling doers.

We feel the tension between our expectations and our desires. We carry a lot. We are fucking amazing.

For the Seekers who want beauty everywhere… and crave simplicity.

For the devotees of Higher Love… enraged by global injustice.

For the soulful ones, surrounded by people… but feeling disconnected.

For the Light Makers who want to be of service… and also need a day (year?) off.

 

Live in your most sacred + powerful ways

I asked a few hundred thousand people, “What do you crave, what do you love, where are the pain points?” I sat by the fire for a few weeks, pencil in hand, and looked at the patterns in everyone’s answers:

We want to be more deeply devoted, to ourselves and however we define Spirit.

We want to feel truly supported + connected in our friendships.

We’re almost desperate to have sane relationships with our effing phones and computers.

We want to flow with time… “arriving” and relaxing into it.

We want to help the world, be of service, activate.

We want to eat clean.

We want less stuff, but more of the quality.

We want to feel free, brave. LIGHTER.

 

LIGHTER, as in less weighed down, less cranking, less friction.

LIGHTER, as in clear-minded.

LIGHTER, as in with glowing hearts we heal—ourselves and each other.

 

Getting LIGHTER

LIGHTER is a 12-month Soul support program. 12 months of heart-mind nourishment. 12 months of introspection and taking loving action—for yourself, humanity, and Mother Earth. I’m giving you everything I’ve got in my esoteric tool box. Prayers. Breathing techniques. Research. Altar cards. It’s a medicine bundle of everything that’s worked for me—and my girlfriends. And it will be beautiful to behold.

I’M GOING TO MAIL YOU THINGS! A papery, inquisitive monthly Workbook that you can touch. Old school, babe. The esoteric comes with all the “you have to try this” lifestyle stuff that my girlfriends and I exchange. I like systems and I like progress, so there will be a logic to how we create change over the course of the year. There will be playlists. AND checklists. And we will meditate together—GORGEOUS, doable in your busy life meditations that will cleanse and vitalize, and serve the collective consciousness.

I asked one of my best friends what she wanted from this: “Just tell me exactly what to do, because I’m so tired of telling everyone else—my guy, my team, my kids, what to do.” Roger that, New Age over-achievers.

A Whole Year of LIGHTER
with Danielle

Let’s go crush the fuck out of nerve-wracking and gigantic life goals by wringing every second out of every minute on our way to flawless happiness and making our first zillion dollars. And let’s Instagram about it. Actually, I have a different idea…

Let’s work from the inside out—steady and devoted, to prioritize what’s most meaningful to us. AND: let’s include healing the world in our life plans. And let’s do this like the magical creatures that we are: speaking Truth, showing compassion, and starting fires of change with our very presence.

We will focus in order to expand. I’ve mapped out LIGHTER Intentions for the year. Eight of them. Each month we will draw from a collection of sacred practices to help achieve these Intentions. We are going somewhere together. I hope that after twelve months you will feel lighter—brighter, freer and empowered—in these areas of your life:

Our 8 LIGHTER Intentions

For the Year

DEEPER DEVOTION

Self Compassion + Spiritual Practice (they are one and the same)

FULFILLING FRIENDSHIPS

Expanding and deepening your circle of Love (platonic, romantic, familial, community.)

TO BE IN RIGHT RELATIONSHIP TO TECHNOLOGY

A return to sanity… and more real connection to life.

TIME HARMONY

Let go of “never arriving”. Master the flow.

SACRED ACTIVISM

Compassionate action for humanity and Mother Earth.

CONSCIOUS CONSUMPTION

Living with lighter impact on Mother Earth.

NUTRITION AWARENESS

Personal, local, and global food consciousness.

QUALITY SLEEP

Rest. It’s productive.

LIGHTER Practices

These are the practices we will draw from
… in order of priority … for ourselves + our Higher Power + each other

CLARIFY.

Discernment is liberation and true power.

DEVOTE.

Commit to Light consciousness, the Higher Love. Not easy.  But… Soul growth, good karma, blessings beyond measure.

PROTECT.

Your body, your heart, your psyche, your Soul.

COMMUNE.

With each other.

GIVE THANKS.

Practice of gratitude, flourishes of thanks.

SIMPLIFY.

Choose elegance. Trust, focus, prioritize, patience.

PURIFY.

The more we cleanse and clear, the more the light can pour in.

NOURISH.

How we feed our wellness.

BEAUTIFY.

Beauty heals. Adorn, accentuate the positive.

CREATE.

Express and offer up our gifts.

CELEBRATE.

Party! Mark the moments. Ritual. Joy.

REVOLUTIONIZE.

This… is the Light Work.

REST.

Deep healing, the sanity of the pause.

WHAT THIS PROGRAM IS NOT...

I am NOT getting into: weight loss, making more money, finding The One, better parenting, entrepreneurship, or decluttering. Any or all of those meritorious desirables could happen but I think if you create more devotional practices in your life, spiff up your friendships, and say, set out on your own path of activism, then hey… you will be so much LIGHTER.

Also… there is NO FACEBOOK group for this! Because LIGHTER.

A Meditation Program created specifically for LIGHTER people

We’re receiving a series of meditations over the year specifically geared for LIGHTER people. The custom series will be created by my dear friend, V.S., a deep spiritual practitioner (also my collaborator in my Meditation Kits).

Most of the practices will be using Light and colour as a meditative tool. Because A LIGHT PRACTICE is an ALIGNMENT PRACTICE. These will be really potent, 3 to 15 minute long meditations that are designed to be part of our daily commitment to the Light. Some meditations will also include an extended version.

We’ll get on a live call at the beginning of every new month cycle to do to the practice together (energy!)

Every meditation practice will also come to you in the Workbook, in audio format, and in a portable version via “Devotion Cards” that you can carry with you. Ommm.

4 Devotion Cards a month

We’re creating cue cards for every meditation, breathwork exercise, and prayer so that:
a) You don’t have to refer to your phone, b) You can have in-your-face encouragement for your practices, and c) Did we mention that we hope you will not use your phone as a meditation device?

4 Altar Cards a month

Every month in LIGHTER, we refresh our altars and I’ll send you four new Altar Cards to support our intentions. More magic.

No altar yet? You’ll have one soon. I guide you through how to properly set up a devotional altar in the first month.

4 DeCLARATION Cards a month

The idea is for you to place these cards in your various spaces as visual cues for becoming lighter… your bedside table, fridge, workspace, bathroom mirror, day planner, or your purse/backpack. Wherever you please. You’ll get a fresh set of Declaration Cards every month.

MONTHLY SACRED WORD AUDIOS

Every month brings a new set of Sacred Words. Used with intention, these words can have all kinds of effects—mind clearing or calming, heart-stirring, manifestation support. The word set in the first month is associated with Authentic Power. I’ll do a recorded version for you with the words looping to music, and you can use them as a meditation or just let them play on repeat in your space. You’ll also get the monthly Sacred Words as an Altar Card, and in the Workbook.

 

3 monthly playlists

I curate your soundtrack for each month. One playlist is a mantra, another will focus on a practice of “element” of the month (Air, Water, Earth, Fire) and the third list is for turning up the volume on our LIGHTER intentions.

Access to a private LIGHTER Instagram

I like Instagram because it’s visual and bite-sized, so we’ll use this as social support. If you don’t want to hunt through your email for a poem or the name of a product that I talked about, you may be able to find it easily in the feed. I’ll also drop a bit more Love and insight for you into Stories—just a few little lightpoints every now and then to keep things twinkly.

You + Me

We’ll have three calls a month, and you’ll get the recordings. The LIGHT PLAN call is where I set us up for the month and give you more details for practices. There will probably be an extra rant or two. In week 3 we’ll do the LIGHT HERE, LIGHT NOW call—which is all Q&A. Super juicy and useful. Or at least entertaining. And we’ll run through the monthly MEDITATION together.

Girlfriend-style LIGHT ‘grams from me

I’ll send you short Love notes, strict orders… and maybe the occasional inspiring Mark Ruffalo pic by text. #winkyface

Here’s what a month of LIGHTER brings...

First, you’ll get something beautiful in the mail every month: The LIGHTER Workbook. (And at 139 pages it’s like… a book.) We start every month-long cycle in sync with the astrological calendar, which is around the 20th of the month. Your printed Workbook should arrive to you in the mail a few days before then.

Each Workbook is a Soulful journal, part to-do grid, and part lush magazine. Every Workbook includes a series of introspective processes, either inspiration or research-type information in each intention area; a meditation, prayer, mantra; and a set of suggestions called, “what you can actually do”—because inspiration is great, but we need to put things in forward motion. My hope is that you’ll set up weekly LIGHTER Dates with yourself to really let this happen.

To give you an idea of how the year will unfold, here’s a peek at our first month:

Workbook #1 May / June : Gemini
Element in Focus: AIR
Theme: YOU ARE SO MUCH MORE

Devotion Cards

ALTAR CARDS

DECLARATION CARDS

Our first month is an intense one. With the Month 1 Workbook, we will:

  • Set up a devotional altar so you have a “spiritually strategic” space dedicated to well-being and offering up thanks. We’ll be refreshing our altars every month.
  • Learn a breathing practice to clear “fight or flight” stress from our nervous systems.
  • Consider a spirituality that supports all of who we are and want to become. We’ll look at our Self Improvement Laundry List: What’s expanding and lighting you up, what’s… not. What do you want to deepen your commitment to, and how? What do you want to leave behind?
  • Prepare to enrich our lives with deeper friendships by doing a soulful assessment of the state of friendship in our lives: what are our fondest memories, and what do we long for more of?
  • Get more informed with reports on EMFs, glyphosates, and other things you want to stay faaar away from. (And, I go OFF on these topics, because this stuff makes my blood boil.)
  • Lighten our tech stress by unfollowing on social media and deleting apps that are weighing us down.
  • Open ourselves to sacred activism: What impacts me, or my loved ones? What injustices hurt my heart?
  • Tend to the air we breathe and food we consume. I’ll give you a comprehensive list of all the potential toxins and eco-threatening things I personally look out for. You don’t have to be intimidated. We will purify and nourish.
  • Leonard Cohen makes an appearance (I’m pretty sure he will be a regular).
  • Every Workbook arrives with four Altar Cards, four Declaration Cards, and four Devotion Cards for that month’s theme.

 

…And that’s just the printed book + cards. More support content will be delivered live and online.

WEEK 1 is the big delivery:

On May 21st (the first day of Gemini), after you receive your Workbook, Altar Cards, Declaration Cards, and Devotion Cards in the mail, I send you an email of haus-keeping notes and Playlist #1, a mantra to start you vibing right away.

On May 22, dial in for our first LIGHT PLAN call. I’ll set you up with extra insight on the themes for the month, and tell some true stories. Stuff that’s current, alive, and maybe not in the Workbook.

In the first week, we’ll also have our live meditation call. The first practice is called The Alchemy Meditation. The intention is CLARITY… crystal clear insight. It’s 15 minutes long, and we will work with a specific set of colours. By using Light and colour as a meditative tool, we are, very literally, shining Light on the matter. If you’re inspired, I’m encouraging you to do this meditation 28 consecutive days, just 3 to 15 minutes a day. Align. Heal. Serve. With the Light.

WEEK 2:

I may text you a love note or a strict order. This week comes with Playlist #2, focusing on the element of the month (Air). My hitherto unfulfilled dreams of being a DJ in this life are now real (insert record scratch).

Note: Anything that you receive online from me will be to support the Workbook, not to pile on more work or create digital distractions. Some of it will be for pure delight. My friends and I mostly text about conspiracy theories and Mark Ruffalo photos, so it will be tempting to slip you some of that… But we’ll keep even the cheese intentional. Give or take.

Week 3:

We’re deep in it now. This week is a Lifestyle + Culture email. Think: the documentaries that affected how I see things, the best incense I’ve ever found, that thing that so n’ so told me about that changed everything, my obsessively organized spice and makeup drawers, my favourite tips for travelling lighter. Girlfriend stuff.

And we have our LIGHT HERE, LIGHT NOW call in week three. Your questions, my answers. Anything goes.

WEEK 4:

The month comes to a close. Another LIGHT ‘gram via text to keep you lit up and informed. And finally, Playlist #3 arrives in your email, themed around our LIGHTER Intentions to get them humming in your bones.

And THAT is how we begin a whole year together. We clarify, devote, protect, and commune. We give thanks. Simplify and purify. Nourish and beautify. We create, we celebrate, we revolutionize… and rest. ‘Til we become LIGHTER.

Let’s huddle

This program is, like, more accessible than I’ve ever been.
I don’t know what’s come over me.

My Peoples…

To quote The Emotions, a great R&B (um, disco) trio from 1973: Goin’ in and out of changes / The kind that come around each day / My life has a better meaning / Love has kissed me in a beautiful way / Whoa whoa, you got the best of my love.

This is it. I’ve spent most of my career in my writer’s turret, only coming out for stage gigs in my heels. I’ve showed up in a certain and consistent way, just, you know, bloggin’ and being a pop-up publisher. This is different. I feel like we need to huddle—rally time so we can really get somewhere. Because we need to get somewhere better than where we are.

I’m in love with this planet. I could list reasons I’m grateful and in awe of life until I’m breathless. Joy is here and now. And… we can make life so much LIGHTER. That’s The Call. Hear it? Whoa whoa…

…the best of my love,

WHEN YOU BUY

Registration opens April 24 and closes May 21 at 11:59pm PDT. Buy within that time frame, when you’re able and inspired.

However… the sooner you register, the sooner you’ll get your Workbook mailed to you. Ideally, you’ll have that beauty in your hands when we actually kick off the program on Monday, May 21. (We don’t want your fresh start to be at the mercy of the postal service.)

If you register closer to the start date (May 21) and you don’t get your Workbook by kick off: you will have access to the digital copy.

TAKE A PEEK

Come over to my Instagram for behind the scenes videos about LIGHTER, including:

  • a deeper look at our Intentions and Practices,
  • peeks at my favourite pages of the Workbook,
  • an important segment on pricing transparency (i.e. why it costs what it costs.)

I’ll keep adding more over time. LIGHTER in real life. Alive and in motion.

Visit my @daniellelaporte Instagram (on your phone), then click on LIGHTER Highlights.

We do the Light Work

$100 from every program is shared with three charitable causes:

  1. Eve Ensler’s VDay, a global movement to end violence against women and girls.
  2. charity: water, to bring safe drinking water to everyone in the world.
  3. A disaster relief fund. We set aside one third of the monies raised to be disbursed to local relief efforts if/when major natural disasters occur.
Special discounts for current facilitators

Are you already one of our Desire Map or Fire Starter Sessions Facilitators? Make your move before May 21st to save up to $300 on the year-long LIGHTER program. Check your email for pricing and purchasing information just for current facilitators. #becauseweloveyou

TRACKING THE LIGHT A (mini) inquiry for big life Clarity

As a precursor to the year of soul support, here’s an exercise in CLARITY (one of my favourite words). I’ve got questions for you in 8 life areas: Deeper Devotion, Fulfilling Friendships, Right Relationship with Technology, Time Harmony, Sacred Activism, Conscious Consumption, Nutrition Awareness, and Quality Sleep.

J. Krishnamurti, my philosopher crush said, “If you begin to understand what you are without trying to change it, then what you are undergoes a transformation.” See where this is going?

Start by getting clear… so you can let more Light in.

And if you haven’t tuned in yet… Check out the LIGHT WORK Podcast Self-realization, straight up

Girlfriend-style sermons on saving the world while staying sane; choosing cosmic connectedness over tech addiction; self compassion and more fulfilling friendships.

FAQ

IF I BECOME A SPONSOR, CAN I FIND OUT WHO I HELPED?

When you purchase LIGHTER for Two, we’ll email to confirm your sponsorship. Our team will match your generous gift with a sister (or really cool mister) who has reached out to us expressing need. Both the gifter and the giftee will remain anonymous, to honour the privacy of everyone participating.

CAN I GET A TAX RECEIPT FOR THE PORTION OF MY REGISTRATION THAT GOES TO CHARITY?

Your purchase of LIGHTER won’t be eligible for a tax receipt, since all of the funds will be processed through Danielle LaPorte, Inc. We looked into other options but the logistics for processing individual donations were beyond our capacity. But the charitable good will get done!

WILL THE CALLS BE RECORDED IF I CAN’T MAKE ALL OF THE CALL TIMES?

All of the calls are recorded. If you miss one, we’ll always send out a replay link after the call. You’ll also be able to access the call recordings in the online LIGHTER portal.

WHAT IS THE REFUND POLICY?

We don’t do returns or refunds for the LIGHTER program—digital content can’t be returned anyway. We’re doing our very best to make the contents of the program as clear and illustrative as possible so everyone knows what they’re investing in. We commit, you commit. We all get LIGHTER.

If you have ANY questions about the program, please reach out to us at lighter@daniellelaporte.com.
