New holiday traditions, to sweeten the chaos

Holiday2018.HolidayTraditions_Email.Header

There’s a lot about the holidays I look forward to. The beautiful rituals, and being with people I love, and Jesus (one of my true loves). But… there’s a lot about the holidays in North America that I could do without. So I try to keep this season as gentle as possible. Here’s my way of sweetening the chaos and creating beauty that doesn’t weigh heavy on Mother Earth…

THE best hot cocoa recipe—that’s NUTRITIOUS
Vancouver-based nutritionist, Desiree Nielson got me into this delicious Superfood Hot Cocoa that’s vegan and gluten free. The recipe is here!

Shower the people you love with… a few simple words
My friend Carrie M. inspired this years ago: Dinner place cards that really honour your guests. Simple words. Any positive word-concept-thought you have about them. This may be the sweetest gift they’ve received in a long time—some poetic acknowledgement. I guarantee they’ll leave with these tucked close to their heart.

Freedom… to not gift (‘tis a beautiful thing)
A few years ago I asked a bunch of my friends, “Hey, so, can our gift to each other this year be that we don’t exchange gifts?” The unanimous answer: “Oh my God! I would love that!

Friends don’t let friends stress out or overspend.

Gifting concert tickets
Concert tix are my favourite gift to give. Because MUSIC. Is everything. Because… date night!

Gifting The Desire Map Weekly Planner
I’m so proud of The Desire Map Planner Program this year. (Well, every year… but this year especially because it always gets better.) I love gifting Planners to any dreamer-doers on the list, and my old school types who still like paper ‘n pen planning.

Because this:

With an organic elegance The Desire Map couples our primal desire-energy with the inborn intelligence of our feelings. The result? Optimizing our time on Earth. LaPorte’s joie de vivre is contagious. Prepare to catch it.” – Michael Bernard Beckwith, author of Life Visioning

And this:

I literally get tears in my eyes when I think about how this program is shifting my perception and helping me to really go after what is truly important and to let go of the rest.”  – Catherine Just, Photographer

The Principles of Active Waiting vs. feeling-like-a-loser, losing-your-mind kind of waiting…

I was at a friend’s cluttered apartment and he was saying how much he wanted to have a live-in girlfriend. And I was like, “Dude, where would she put her stuff?” He got his tidy on to make space for the live-in love he was waiting to find. That’s active waiting — happily preparing for what you trust is on its way to you.

this video has been getting a LOT of attention

What are you willing to do for your creative dream? Are you willing to transform? To give it up; be the fool; re-write your story; not recognize yourself; believe differently; be something, someone, you have not yet known? It does take a “miracle mindset”. And…

Some marketing know-how. Cosmic meets pragmatism.

You were born for this. See what I mean…

We believe in something bigger than ourselves. We understand that the cultural obsession with productivity is killing our joy & harming the planet. We KNOW the world needs leaders who uphold a triple bottom line—economic, social, environmental. So. This message is for you. (Especially if you’re a Creative, a teacher, a leader, an entrepreneur—or want to be.)

How to be wildly successful

How to be wildly successful—on your terms

If you’ve been trying to turn your business or art into a profitable vehicle that makes a difference in the world, I’m all in to help make that happen. There is Soul work involved. There are no shortcuts. But, I’ve got some stories and ideas that could help with learning curves and obstacles…

Naked Prayer

Naked prayer.

I’ve always prayed. To heal. To have. I pray for people I love and people I have a hard time liking. I’ve sat in prayer circles petitioning rain and for someone’s cancer to dissolve. I know dozens of prayers from various faiths. I’ve published prayers. Danced them. Sang them. Sweat them. In reverence, in shock, in exquisite thanks.

I pray differently now.
