To Yourself? Your Life? Your Dreams?

can you imagine?

a weekend all about you.

A weekend of transformation, 

Featuring the desire map

April 14-17, 2016       Bobcaygeon, Ontario

When was the last time someone asked you this:

 "How do you want to feel?"

What if every decision that you had to make from now on was just a little easier - or a lot easier?

Based on Danielle Laportes best-selling book The Desire Map, The Desire Map Workshop - Level 1 is a program for clarifying what you truly want in every area of your life, and using that powerful awareness to guide your choices. 

What if, first, you got really clear on how you actually want to feel in your life, and then set your intentions?

We go after the things that we want to have and accomplish and hope that we will feel great when we get it. But that doesn't always happen and we get burned out. What if goal setting and planning were done from the inside out - rather than the outside in?

Can you imagine...

What it might be like to be conscious and aware of your core desired feelings when planning your day, your work, your free time? Your life?

It's like a GPS for the soul.

Over the course of the weekend, you will be guided through 5 life areas to explore how you most want to feel in:

Lifestyle & Livelihood

Body & Wellness

Creativity & Learning

Relationships & Society

Essence & Spirituality

What you discover will be your "core desired feelings". A guidance system for decision-making.

And they can make all the difference.

A little about Glenda

I am passionate about the difference that meditation and the Desire Map can make for people. They have both had a significant impact on my life and if I can share that with others who may benefit as well,  then my journey has been worthwhile. 

The tag line for my business Moonset Meditation, is "If not now, when?" It came to me during meditation and I later learned that it is from an ancient saying, more than 2000 years old, but I had not heard it before. Taking care of ourselves is often something that gets left behind or put off. Someday we will do it, just not now. But often, that 'someday' never comes as we get wrapped up in the chores of everyday life.

So I ask you - will you do it? Will you do it now? For yourself? It is important work, this taking care of ourselves.  If not now, when? I am both thrilled and humbled to be your facilitator for The Desire Map Weekend Retreat and so look forward to meeting you.

Some final thoughts on

The Desire Map process.

Invoking one of my core desired feelings - courageous - I am posting this video, despite its lack of technological finesse and not appearing as clear as in its original format. I'm still trying to figure that out! But at its heart, I wanted to be able to verbalize directly to you, why I feel passionately that The Desire Map process can be so beneficial for anyone. Registration information is below. 


If you are still wondering if this is for you, I am happy to arrange a 15-20 minute skype or telephone call to better answer your questions.  E-mail me and we can set up a time to talk.

Praise from the book

The first time I did a 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.

Praise from the book

Most of us are so busy planning that we forget what we're planning for. Danielle Laporte has gained a reverence for our desires in a way that brings meaning back to our daily actions. The Desire Map is a life-changer.
