Desire Map Facilitator Guidebook Contents

DESIRE MAP WORKSHOP LEVEL 1: CORE DESIRED FEELINGS

The Level 1 Desire Map Workshop curriculum is all about discovery. This curriculum guides people through an exploration of perceptions around the value of feelings. It digs into our desires in relation to ambition, external approval, goal-setting, self-love, and respect. This includes group and solo exercises around identifying what participants are grateful for, what has snagged them before, and exploring the relationship they have with their own emotions. By the end of the curriculum, they will identify their Core Desired Feelings—emotional guideposts that they will use to design their life.

DESIRE MAP WORKSHOP LEVEL 2: GOALS WITH SOUL

The Level 2 Desire Map Workshop curriculum is all about setting goals and intentions using newly discovered Core Desired Feelings. This curriculum guides people through the exploration of perceptions around goals and goal-setting. How do they see their desires through the lenses of ambition, external approval, and perceived “success”? This workshop creates the space for people to meaningfully reorient their relationship to intention so that they can do, have, and experience what they most desire.

We provide you detailed instructions for facilitating both levels of this curriculum—such as timestamps for each activity, optional and essential components, customization options, tips for enriching the content with additional thoughtful activities or exercises, and extra resources for deepening experiences.

The Desire Map is an incredible entry point to further coaching. It offered me a ready-made workshop to get started with, and it gives me a platform to speak from, complete with workbooks and a range of support materials for my clients. The Desire Map creates a common language right away.” Meghan Neeley

Being a facilitator has made me more fluid as a yoga teacher. To be more open, less rigid, and to stand in the questions as a student and teacher. Some of that is attributed to years of teaching experience, but some of it, I know, comes from Desire Mapping.” Maria Merrill

The Desire Map is deep work—it’s life changing, and it’s what we have to do to connect with our higher purpose in life. Beyond that, it’s about finding our true happiness. It gets better with every event and coaching experience. I feel like the luckiest woman alive to be a facilitator of this life-changing and valuable experience.” Connie Kanella Aramento

“When I first began to devour the concepts of Desire Mapping it was like meeting a new person you just know will be a lifelong kindred friend. The Desire Map marries so synchronistically with my style of coaching, my offerings, and my belief system. There was no way I could not become a facilitator and coach of this work.” Marisa Clare

“It's not an exaggeration to say that The Desire Map has changed my life, and as a Desire Map facilitator, as an accountant turned dentist who believes I deserve to love my work (my secret: I currently don't love it), I find myself planning yet another career shift in order to align myself with my Core Desired Feelings: free, aligned, aglow, connected. I plan to use the tools available to me as a Desire Map and Fire Start Sessions Facilitator not only to help women create lives they love just as I'm doing, but also to help me transition into a new career as a coach.” Joanne Bourgault

“Health, self-care, and The Desire Map are a perfect combination for success for any healthy coaching client. Adding it into my coaching has been the best decision I’ve made.” Katie Henry
