The Desire Map Workshop

How do you want to feel?
In your heart, your body, your career?
As you go about your day?
When you wake up in the morning?
When you go to bed at night?
When you speak your peace?
When you go after what you want?




The Desire Map is not just a book.
It’s the flame that sparked a revolution of feeling good and living free.


When: TBC - Coming soon (Feb/March)
Where: TBC
Includes: afternoon tea, tea and coffee, a copy of the Desire Map book



THE DESIRE MAP WORKSHOP – LEVEL 1: confirming your Core Desired Feelings

Level 1 offers a framework for clarifying what you truly want in every area of your life, and using that powerful awareness to guide your choices from now on.

You will leave this workshop knowing your “Core Desired Feelings” – a guidance system for your decision-making.

A GPS for your soul.

You will be guided through five life areas, to explore your most desired feelings in:

- Lifestyle + Livelihood

- Creativity + Learning

- Body + Wellness

- Relationships + Society

- Essence + Sprituality

We will create sacred space, inner and outer – an altar, backed by a great music playlist and tied together with shared intentions.

We’re going to burn limiting beliefs (figuratively.)

We will offer up our own wisdom, relate, and learn from each other.

"Totally empowering, this workshop gifted me with an internal compass that is helping to steer me towards my greatest goals. Goals that were once considered far-fetched dreams. Connecting with like-minded women, I felt a sense of camaraderie and freedom to be raw, honest and get real about how I want to live the best life I can. In a word, this workshop is LOVE." - Steph  


THE DESIRE MAP WORKSHOP - LEVEL 2: setting Goals with Soul

We’ll look at our perceptions around “feelings” and traditional goal setting. We’ll examine how we drive and strive, and see where in our lives we experience freedom — and where we want more of it.

You will make some soul-anchored declarations and attach them to some every day PLANS.

Poetic to the practical.

We will make a plan about how to integrate our core desired feelings into your day, week, month and year. 

As we go soul deep with desire mapping, we’ll close down our eyes, breathe and come into the present moment with meditations, visualisations and intention setting.

"It exceeded my expectations... I hate setting goals down on paper and feeling like I have to tick off the goal-to-do-list. This workshop actually tapped into what I do naturally and has worked well over the past two years i.e. visualisation. It has now given me other tools to explore and some new directions to take." - Karen

Two days of delving deep within, connecting with your soul and true desires, yummy food, relaxation techniques, meeting soul sisters and creating a tribe to support and encourage you - trust me, this workshop is totally worth it!" 

"The venue - amazing, so cosy, warm, inviting, spacious - I could go on!
Food - delicious!!!" - Lauren

"Venue was great. Loved the quirky space, it was great to explore. Food was very tasty." - Karen



Plan for aha’s and hallelujahs. After declaring their core desired feelings, people have been known to make changes. Big changes.

You may quit stuff, launch something, stand up, shine brighter, ask for more.

Rise up. Lean in.

You may feel the way you’ve always wanted to.



Do I have to attend Level 1 to be able to attend Level 2?

You can come to Level 1 only, however it's a prerequisite to have completed Level 1 to attend Level 2 which dives deeper into soulful goal setting once core desired feelings are confirmed. Level 2 is an extension to help you consolidate how to apply your Core Desired Feelings (CDFs) to everyday life and your individual goals.

Even if you know what your CDFs are from completing the Desire Map book, it is likely you may walk away from Day 1 with different CDFs or a different understanding of them. Spending time in the sacred container of a group allows you to dive much deeper than you might when completing the process alone.

What are my transport/parking options getting to the event?

Tram 1 or 8. There is plenty of parking in side streets or parking on Lygon St. There is a secure bike rack within the building for those wishing to ride to the venue (entrance from the rear). The venue is also wheelchair accessible (entrance from the rear).

What can I bring to the event?

There is a copy of the Desire Map included in the workshop price. If you already have your own copy of the Desire Map, please feel free to bring it with you. You may choose to gift the workshop copy to a friend.

Please bring a personal item that has meaning for you to place on our altar for the weekend. There will be water, tea, coffee and snacks provided. 

I have a food allergy, is this a problem?

If you have any food allergies please email Snacks and raw treats provided. There are a number of good local options nearby for you to purchase your own lunch. 

Where can I contact the organiser with any questions?

Any questions please email or go to

Is my registration/ticket transferrable?

Yes, you can transfer your ticket to a friend as long as you email to notify of the name of the person who will be attending on your behalf.

Do I have to bring my printed ticket/receipt of purchase to the event?

No, I will have a list of attendees.

I'm interested in becoming a Desire Map licensed facilitator, can I come to your workshop?

Absolutely. Please email me to discuss becoming a facilitator and I can answer any questions you may have. I highly recommend attending a workshop before leading your own. It has been extremely beneficial for me personally. You can read more about becoming a facilitator here.
