the best list ever, by Danielle: vol. 2

It’s time for a random list of appreciation, enduring love and a few trends. In no particular order:

E3 Live Blue Green Algae: this is like jumper cables for your brain. I buy it frozen from my local health food store, I de-thaw half the bottle at a time and use about 3 tablespoons of it in my smoothie. I can feel my brain grin–from ear to ear…ar ar ar — ear to ear, brain, get it…anyway…When I’m on the road or don’t do a smoothie, I pop three or four of the capsules. Green dream.

Tom Ford Fragrance: I haven’t ventured out of essential oils for years, the synthetic stuff ain’t my cut. But Tom…oh Tom, I’m so glad you swing both ways.

Speaking of hot men…

Ray LaMontange: This raspy-voiced minstrel loves his women. And you gotta love that in a man.

The iPad2: can’t believe I waited so long to get the iPad2. It’s a cafe-friendly piece of freeing technology.

Rapportive: a free lil’ app for Gmail users that “shows you everything about your contacts right inside your in-box.”

OmmWriter: this is Zen wallpaper for writing in peace. No desktop icons or formatting rulers to distract you from making art. Ahhh.

Pheylonian Beeswax candles: I just placed my yearly order. The very, very best.

Rob Mee’s article on What’s Your Start-up’s “Bus Count”? 7 Myths of Entrepreneurship and Programming, is a grounded perspective on what makes for good work and output, as told from the perspective of software development. Wise stuff that applies to every creative process.

width= These fantastic books for kids
: The Boy Who Grew Flowers, by Jennifer Wojtowicz
: Weslandia, by Paul Fleischman
: Everest, Books 1, 2, 3, by Gordon Korman. We’re plowing through this fantastic story of nobility and adventure. “Mama, are you crying again?” Sniff.
: Schooled, by Gordon Korman

And this poem, from my friend Samantha, who is writing one poem a day for a year. (As we all should.)


The present
paper thin
be careful
it is dissolving
as you read this
new moments
erupt under your feet
fill each one
with awareness
your heart beats
can you believe it
your body coaxes
you onward
utter faith
that you will
spend the offering
of life

Summer Love

The most powerful possible Yes to women

…to the dark, the spacious, the sweet, the jaded, the women who live as certain as light rays,
who renovate broken boardrooms and policies with justified anger and overwhelming Love —
Love of inclusion, of ecology, of bone solid Truth — Love of Love.

Danielle LaPorte Love Radiance Meditation

You. Me. Let’s talk Love + Radiance over lunch…

Real talk about Love + Radiance…resistance…humbling revelations…All the light stuff.


Introducing The Love + Radiance Meditation Kit (+ a LIVE class with me).

The meditation is multi-form and more…multifaith. This experience wraps together: prayer, meditation, visualization and mantra “Words of Power.” We produce it in print and audio, with cue cards for DIY. And because the “landscape” of the meditation is so key, we’ve given you a visual “mood board” of photographs to help you see your way into the space.

Here are the questions––which I am now asking YOU: What’s the drag in your life? The general pain points. How could I help you with that?

Addicted to productivity

Addicted to productivity, and the courageous act of…stillness.

Wisdom is so underrated these days, but never mind that. Courage up. Wise people pause. Because they know that when you can be still, you become more real. Deeper. And that’s where the value is.


Can you love the problems that come with your good choices? (Because there will always be problems.)

Can you love the problems inherent in your industry? The challenges that come with the goals you’ve set? The hoops you have to jump through to get what you want the most?
