The Desire Map Book
What [my students] do with their CDF's every day is remind me that more than anything they want love, to feel good, to be happy, to be connected.
Bethany Sanchez, Director of Helping Hearts Academy
What I noticed after doing The Desire Map and expressing my core desired feelings to my husband was that he just got cleverer about making my life more wonderful.
Kate McCombs, Sex & Relationship Educator
When I was building my website I said I want it to feel like how my work feels. It was so amazing to feel that sense of integrity.
Rochelle Schieck, Author and Creator of Qoya
As a therapist, I make The Desire Map required reading for clients looking to take their lives and life satisfaction to the next level. This is a genius and profoundly effective guide to actualizing your deepest desires.
Terri Cole, TerriCole.com
She reps the sisterhood thing and women’s empowerment... The Desire Map [is] basically charting the things that you want in life, and not just sitting back and saying, “I’m going to manifest this…here’s how,” but actively doing something to manifest your dream.
Shailene Woodley, actress, The Fault In Our Stars
The Desire Map has me reeling. Your truth is so laid bare, raw, revealed. I’m drop-jawed in awe.
Meggan Watterson, author of Reveal | MegganWatterson.com
My only mistake was starting to read The Desire Map at night. I couldn’t put it down, madly scouring my heart for longing, writing down my desires with clarity I haven’t felt for years. Thank you so much for this. It’s straightforward and yet deeply poetic. It’s big and beautiful and generous and profound. I don’t say this lightly – it changes everything.
Samantha Reynolds, Founder and President, Echo Memoirs
The Desire Map has such life and truth and passion; what could be better than re-aligning yourself daily with your heart's desire?
Geneen Roth, Women, Food and God and Lost and Found
"The Desire Map has already shifted how I feel inside. The feeling? Calm. Peaceful. Connected. On purpose. I've stopped the striving. I've stopped looking outward and comparing myself to others and feeling like I need to go go go to catch up. There's nothing to catch up to. It's just me, and the universe, co-creating the feelings I want to have and the desired outcome has been more meaningful than any how-to / self-help / business guide I have read.
Her other book, The Fire Starter Sessions, jump-started my current career and put me on the path to doing exactly what I love and being more clear about my vision.
The Desire Map has me fainting with the wisdom-bombs, internal shifts and made everything worth focusing on sink in even deeper.
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.
Danielle LaPorte fills these pages with so much valuable insight, tips, suggestions, and I haven't even gotten to the workbook portion yet! Yep, this one is not to be missed. I am grateful for the work she does. My life and my business."

The Desire Map is her best work ever ... it's incredible, life-changing stuff. You won't be disappointed.
Jonathan Mead, paidtoexist.com
Do yourself a favor. Invest in yourself and check out The Desire Map. It may just change the way you navigate your life.
Myra Young, SpaciousnessUnlimited.com
The first time I did The Desire Map, I called Danielle to say, This works! Declaring my core desired feelings uplifted my relationships and the way I work in the world. And nobody puts out poetic motivation like Danielle does. The Desire Map is a hotline to your truth.
Gabrielle Bernstein, May Cause Miracles and Spirit Junkie
Desire Map awakens something within that has gone dormant due to loss, stress, sadness or simply the craziness of life
Danielle writes with power-punching strength and witty humor. She makes it easy for me to grow and change and get instant insights. The Desire Map is an inspiring tool for a mom and business-owner!
Lori Sutherland, Soul Stylist
You have crafted pure magic with The Desire Map. A total work of heart and art, Danielle. Thank you.
Most of us are so busy planning that we forget what we're planning for. You've ignited a reverence for our desires in a way that brings meaning back to our daily actions. The Desire Map is a life-changer.
Nisha Moodley, FierceFabulousFree.com
Desire. Feelings. Wants. Discipline. Choices. Goals.
These can feel complicated to tease out, but The Desire Map helps you to relate to all of them, differently. If you’re tired of the usual “to-do list” of goals, and want to know how to make goals that are rich with meaning, The Desire Map walks you through that process.
It’s part philosophy, part practical action, broken down into meaty modules that ask you to get truthful, invite you to playfully get real about what you desire, and to take inspired action.
Kate Swoboda, YourCourageousLife.com
I think I'm going to make listening to @daniellelaporte #DesireMap a prerequisite to becoming a client of ours. Would create ease & flow.
Erin Blaskie, ErinBlaskieInc.com
Seriously, where to even start with how much I loved it... It's the exact conversation I've been wanting to have with myself about letting "feeling good" lead the way. And then delivered in your hypnotizing words? SOLD. As someone who is always seeking that balance of ambition and presence, your love letter to Desire was just what I needed, D. There were so many little aha explosions for me. This truly spoke to me, confirming so much of what's been going on in my heart about wanting and trust and allowing. Thank you for this truth.
Molly Mahar, Stratejoy.com
The Desire Map is profound, crazy-deep, amazing soul tonic. Take a sip, and shape-shifting, alchemical transformation of your relationship to life is yours for the taking. Brace yourself. This is a soul-stirring path to hearing the call of your soul.
Ann Moller, actress/singer, writer/editor divaoftheword.com
I've been involved with sacred sexuality and ISTA ( International School of Temple Arts) Now I have the Desire Map to offer to the world!! Im very happy. Thanks heaps
The Desire Map is a terrific tool to refresh and recalibrate your life. This philosophy can revitalize anyone who has fallen out of touch with oneself.
Kate Hanselman, Editor & Writer
[Danielle] is confidently contrarian, feminine, decisive, and creative…. She’s been listed, ranked and quoted. At the core of her success is her ability to write. She writes beautifully, lustfully, and poignantly and is quite possibly the most talented and insightful writer publishing on the web.

The Desire Map Facilitator Program
I have not stopped talking about that weekend. The yoga gave me time to step away from the concentration of The Desire Map work, and let the ideas roll around in my mind without strain. This helped me understand what I was really searching for. Finding my Core Desired Feelings has really improved my life.
Adriana Koc-Spadaro, Desire Map Workshop Participant
I was surprised to find that the tribe of women I met at The Desire Map Workshop helped me to open up and go deep -- really deep, really fast. There was no judgement, no suggestion of how to feel. Sharing in that sacred space was powerful.
Twyla Dill, Desire Map Workshop Participant
My biggest delight during the workshop was when each attendee claimed their Core Desired Feelings with the support, witnessing, and cheers of the entire group. We were literally surrounded by how we wanted to feel. So sacred and powerful. And after the workshop, I realized I had acquired a new core desired feeling of my own -- I guess you can't teach transformative work without being transformed yourself!
Pace Smith, Desire Map Facilitator
The visibility I got from this association with Danielle’s brand was significant. At my second retreat, people flew in from Denver, Seattle, Texas… This was a much bigger reach than I’ve had with my other women’s retreats.
Alex Mazerolle, Desire Map Facilitator
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, Desire Map Facilitator Creative. Intuitive. Inspirational. Abundance. Balanced.
Because of The Desire Map, I went from feeling very unsure about who I was and how to be in the world, to knowing at a soul level, every aspect of my personality and feeling very confident about putting myself out into the world.
Viki Stanley-Hutchinson, Desire Map Facilitator Surrendered. Soulful. Naked. Rockstar. Playful. Divinely Feminine & Sexy.
Leading the workshops has felt quite effortless, because you’re really just guiding a great, meaningful conversation. This work has a way of flowing (it goes deep but it gets there easily) that is quite unique.
Sandi Amorim, Desire Map Facilitator
Attending the Desire Map Workshop changed everything. I was so filled up when I left… So much gratitude. I can't say enough about the experience. It was heaven.
Shawn Marie Turi, Desire Map Workshop Participant
Desire mapping in a group setting is powerful, inspiring, eye opening, tear inducing, full of laughter and a great source of connection.
Jessica Robson, Desire Map Workshop Participant
Incorporating movement with the work allowed me to "try on" the words/feelings and see how they felt in my body. When the poses were uncomfortable, my mind would go to words that I didn't want to feel, and my mind went to the feelings I wanted when the practice felt good. My Core Desired Feelings are now much more powerful than they were when I did the work by myself.
Justine De Boer, Desire Map Workshop Participant
I’ve been through (and led) many leadership and growth workshops and I can honestly say The Desire Map workshop has been one of the most powerful I’ve experienced. The exercises, the journal time, the clear and encouraging facilitation and the support of the other participants all contributed to a stellar event.
Pamela Sampel, Desire Map Workshop Participant
As a life coach (16+ years) and yoga instructor (7+ years), I enjoy witnessing the light go on in other people's lives. The Desire Map is a tool that anyone can use to steer their lives according to the constellation of their core desired feelings. This work has profoundly impacted me and I'm ecstatic about sharing it with others.
Corey Stiles, Desire Map Workshop Participant
I jumped at the chance to become a licensee and having experienced the workshop myself, I am even more excited about helping more people live their life from desire instead of obligation. Everyone deserves a piece of this wisdom and to live a life they love.
I love how there is so much freedom to deliver the workshop in a way that is authentic to both The Desire Map and the facilitator. I am already brimming with ideas for how I can use my flair for creative visuals and graphics to help the visual learners in my workshops.
Beth Rivett-Carnac, Desire Map Workshop Participant
Our workshop was filled with unexpected and unexplainable connections. We were sisters by the end, as we learned from each other’s experiences and drew on each other’s energy. It was a weekend love, healing and moxie.
Brandi Beckman, Desire Map Workshop Participant
The support you get from Team D… the fact that they give you everything up front means that from Day One, you’re ready to go. It's a huge time-saver, and it makes the process a lot more efficient.
Kate Swoboda, Desire Map Facilitator
Being a Licensee has helped me fully step into my role as a business owner, as the provider for my own needs - financially and otherwise.
Stephanie Watanabe, Desire Map Facilitator
I am not a great public speaker, so the idea of speaking to a group of women was overwhelming at first. But then I remembered the quote: "Fear is just excitement without taking a breath." So I just decided to make the jump and spend a little extra time preparing for the specific sections that I was a little insecure about, and it paid off. Everything has been great!
Lauren Dubinsky, Desire Map Facilitator
The simplicity of the workshop curriculum makes it dreamy to facilitate while the depth of the content creates a deep and meaningful impact for the participants. And personally, since becoming a Licensee, my level of business savvy has expanded and so has my impact.
Gemma Stone, Desire Map Facilitator
The clarity I have now (after the workshop) is amazing. I know how to do things differently from now on, to get to what I want to feel everyday.
Palm Sheth, Desire Map Workshop Participant
Once my life began to feel better as a result of the Desire Map process, I wanted everyone to know what I’d discovered. I wanted to teach the process, and as a professional Coach, I also wanted a way to use the process with integrity. Finding out licensing was becoming available was like a genie granting my wish, and I was so eager to begin I ran my first workshop within a month of the official launch.
Karen Main, Desire Map Facilitator Valuable. True. Nimble. Connected.
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, Desire Map Facilitator WholeHearted. Authentic. Luxury.
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, Desire Map Facilitator Plugged In. Brave. Nourished.
To be a Desire Map Facilitator is to be a big-hearted leader — for others for sure, but most importantly for myself. To lead myself is to commit to my own happiness, empowerment, and success. It is to commit to living in alignment with feeling reallllly good as much as possible and to simply show others the way through leading by example.
Courtney Sinclair, Desire Map Facilitator Strong. Rad. Sun Kissed. Wild Within. Party In My Heart.
This work is deep, soul-level expansion and life-time sisterhood friendships are formed every time. Deep, light, soul-nourishing, belly-aching laughter, cleansing tears, meaningful conversations, and a sacred container for whatever each person desires. I feel blessed and privileged to have this as part of my “work.”
Louise George, Desire Map Facilitator Bodhi. Queen. Zephyr. Magical.
The Desire Map speaks to the heart, giving my clients the permission to feel the way they’ve always wanted. It’s the perfect addition to any coaching toolbox and brings about real results. It helps guide my clients home, teaching them to tune into their intuition and follow the whispers of their soul. My coaching practice would feel empty without it now.
Simone Russell, Desire Map Facilitator Ease. Spacious. Connection.
Becoming a Desire Map Facilitator was a critical step in taking my heart-based business beyond the walls of the yoga studio. The curriculum has been essential in bridging the transformation that occurs on the mat and giving students the tools to continue the work off the mat.
Dani March, Desire Map Facilitator Magnetic. Radiant. Reverence.
I am so on fire for this work. This program was the key that unlocked the door to my more. I want to share it with everyone — I can’t stop talking about it. I see it as the essential foundation for a thriving meaningful life. It is part of the sacred revolution we all need!
Elisha Clark Halpin, Desire Map Facilitator Spacious. Blissful. Abundant. Sacred. Creative.
Becoming a Desire Map Licensee was a full-body “Yes!” from the get-go. I followed that physical intuition and haven’t looked back. Becoming a licensee and continuing to renew my license correlates to freedom, power and intentionality. It folds into my way of being seamlessly and with extraordinary value.
Deborah Linehan, Desire Map Facilitator Mudita. Creatrix. Home. Freedom.
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, Desire Map Facilitator Sacred Connection. Divine Expansion. Golden. Joyfully Playful. Grace.
