The heart’s sensing, healing, and creative power is unlimited. It can tell the difference between truth and illusion; it can transmute what’s holding us back into actual progress; it has the wisdom to take everything, and everyone, into consideration. The heart knows how to find joy even in suffering. It is constantly signaling us to choose life.
What old world healers have known, science is now proving. Our emotions lead our biology — having a profound effect on our heart rhythms, brain chemistry, and the myriad of systems they control. Stress brings chaos in the heart, positivity brings calm and steadiness. When we "think" with our hearts, we build our lives from a cellular level. It's the ultimate self-agency — and it generates what we're all wanting: joy, peace, and ultimately, a more loving world.
This free part of the course is about discovering your Core Desired Feelings.
Your Core Desired Feelings are how you want to feel most of the time—your most preferred states of being. They’re life-affirming feelings—positive and expansive. They’re qualities of the heart—expressions of love and vitality. Your Core Desired Feelings move you toward your highest self.
Align with your Core Desired Feelings—every day, in all of your choices, especially the big ones––and you’ll be living and giving, with intention. Everything we want is in that wakefulness. It’s the power of heart intelligence.
With each video and 18 printable worksheets + practices, Danielle guides you in a sequenced journey, through five lifestyle areas: Livelihood + Lifestyle, Body + Wellness, Creativity + Learning, Relationships + Society, and Essence + Spirituality.
You will go deep into:
• The Soul Limber Inquiry
• The science of gratitude in your life
• What’s not working in your life
• A past + present feelings assessment
• Your Desired Feelings (This is key!)
• Inner Selves Exploration: Broken Self + Whole Self
• Inner Child, Superhero Self, Future Self Inquiries
• Word Exploration
• Declaration of your Core Desired Feelings
• Essential qualities of your Core Desired Feelings
• Expressions + loves of your Core Desired Feelings
You’ll also have these support tools:
• Core Desired Feelings Themes
• Positive + Pleasurable Feelings Library
• Negative + Unpleasant Feelings Library
• The Core Desired Feelings Word Blessing
• The Prayer For Reflection
In addition to daily videos and downloadable resources, you'll have full access to Danielle’s video-guided meditation, the Heart Centering Practice—which could become a daily reference point for you.
The Heart Centering Practice is medicine for our nervous systems. When you’re not feeling the way you want to feel, this practice helps you generate the heart energy necessary to embody your Core Desired Feelings. It’s a very simple ritual that draws on your breath, compassion, presence, gratitude, and your personal Core Desired Feelings to help you get back to your heart intelligence when you’re feeling unfocused or anxious.
After the free program concludes, there’s much more to unlock and carry on with in the complete course. You move deeply into using your Core Desired Feelings for life planning, and you can get the printed Workbook and Manual for Living mailed to you.

Danielle LaPorte is a member of Oprah’s Super Soul 100, a group who, in Oprah Winfrey’s words, “is uniquely connecting the world together with a spiritual energy that matters.”
She is the creator of The Desire Map series. The book has been translated into ten languages, a day planner system, a multimedia course, a Top 10 iTunes app, and workshop and coaching programs with leaders in 15+ countries. She’s also the author of White Hot Truth: Clarity for keeping it real on your spiritual path, and The Fire Starter Sessions: A guide to creating success on your own terms, which also spun off into a coaching curriculum.
She was a bartender, an apartment manager, a nanny, and eventually… she ran her own publicity agency, and a future-studies think tank studying trends for the likes of the Pentagon and the World Bank. Now she writes poetry and speaks about conscious living. She’s also a mother to a teenage son.
Named one of the “Top 100 Websites for Women” by Forbes, over 5 million people a month visit DanielleLaPorte.com for her regular #Truthbombs and poetry, and what’s been called “the best place online for kickass spirituality.” Marianne Williamson refers to Danielle “as a bright light in the modern priestesshood.” Eve Ensler calls her “a force field of energy, wonder, humour, and love.”

"I wish I had The Desire Map when I was a teen. Core Desired Feelings… joy, freedom, confidence, peace, clarity. Same as now and I’m 50! I didn't know my Core Desired Feelings could be a compass for the life I wanted to live back then. What a gift Desire Map would have been. Grateful to have it now. "
"As a lifelong perfectionist and achievement addict, I've recently met my match as a stay-at-home mother trying to find my purpose. The Desire Map has been transformative in my day-to-day life. When I started living based on how I wanted to feel rather than as a slave to my pointless to-do list, my life changed. I want to feel stronger, so I run. I want to be in awe, so I read about the cosmos. I want to be energized, so I REST. I'm a better, happier mother, and friend now that I live my life based on how I want to feel."
"The Desire Map is the only soul-searching path that works with my somewhat Type-A brain. And frankly, the more I read and study and write, the more I realize that I'm what Danielle calls a "creator" - always wanting more, always looking forward. I've been wildly impressed with the impact it has had on my daily thoughts, my increased ability to act with intention and overall happiness."
"When I found The Desire Map and started listening to how I want to feel, things started to turn around. I still work towards what I want (and am still determined to get whatever it is), but now it's with loving kindness towards myself… knowing that as long as I feel good, whatever that may mean to me at the time, I'm going in the right direction."
"Mind. Blown. Never before had I been told to base life choices on the way I want to feel. I never considered how much control I can personally have over my *future* feelings by making the right choices in my actions here in the present."
