The Desire Map Workshop - Get Hooked on Feeling Good Intro with Carla Wainwright Sat, Oct 20, 2018 at 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Most of us have desire backwards. We set all of these goals, these external markers, and we HOPE that if/when we achieve them we will feel the way that we want to feel. Sometimes we do, many times we don’t, and often that feeling doesn’t last long.

We are living in a reactive, needy energy where we are expecting something outside of ourselves to MAKE US FEEL the way that we desire. It leaves us exhausted and depleted.

In this fun and interactive two-hour intro workshop, I will introduce you to a new kind of desire. One that is fulfilling, sustaining, and CREATIVE. One where the journey feels just as juicy and sweet as the destination. AND you will walk out with one sparkly new CORE DESIRED FEELING to guide you on your journey back to yourself.

If you are unfamiliar with the Desire Map or Danielle LaPorte, this is the perfect event for you.

Breath of Bliss ~ Opening Into Forgiveness with Carla Wainwright Fri, Nov 2, 2018 at 5:30 pm - 8:30 pm

“Forgiveness does not change the past, but it does enlarge the future.” ~Paul Boese

We all know it feels better emotionally to let go of resentment and anger. Then why is it so difficult? We can say sorry and apologize, but often the difficult feelings still remain. 

In this workshop we will explore a powerful and very effective forgiveness practice called ho'oponopono.

Traditionally, the ancient Hawaiian practice of ho’oponopono was used within family systems to clear conflict and to restore and maintain good relationships. It is a simple and brilliant tool that cultivates forgiveness, peacemaking and inner peace while inviting humility, grace, and love. In this workshop we will explore the ho’oponopono practice and weave the theme of forgiveness through the breath work.
 
We will have a longer circular breath practice to allow ourselves to go even deeper into our conscious and subconscious so that we can bring all aspects of our being into our highest alignment.
 
Breath of Bliss is a catalyst for deeper self awareness and connection into the surrounding world. It is a journey that opens our hearts, awareness and helps us align into the truth of who we are. Each experience is unique and an opportunity to experience more freedom and aliveness within.

Breath of Bliss ~ Winter Solstice Ceremony with Carla Wainwright Fri, Dec 21, 2018 at 5:30 pm - 8:30 pm
The Winter Solstice is a celebration of energetic portals that can be accessed for spiritual transformation. In the words of Yogi Bhajan: ‘At a solstice you have to break your patterns. You are here to go through certain changes. And you cannot live intellectually all your life. You have to live by the power of your soul.’

Join Carla, an embodied yoga & breath work facilitator with more than 23 years experience, for a journey through sacred ceremony to explore and discover your true essence. This workshop will focus on helping you go within and see what you have achieved in the past year, and where you are still stuck and help you break the self sabotaging patterns that block you from your highest potential. Set powerful intentions to lead you through the next 6 month period.

The Breath of Bliss Experience allows you to dissolve barriers to love... gain clarity about what lies ahead for you and discover the truth within. We will enjoy movement, presence, connecting, deep sharing and conscious touch. And then dive into an hour and a half of circular connected breath to discover what wants to be felt, seen and realized within you. No prior experience of anything needed - everyone welcome.

The Desire Map Workshop - Level 1: Core Desired Feelings with Carla Wainwright Next held on Sat, Jan 12, 2019 at 10:00 am - 4:30 pm
This enrollment runs from Sat Jan 12, 2019 - Sun Jan 13, 2019
How do YOU want to feel this day, month, year?

Instead of talking about external goals (the ones society and the media serve up on a platter), I want to spread some love this month and get down to the heart of the matter – YOU. You have Aspirations. Hopes. Dreams. So you make a plan to achieve them. The bucket list. To-do lists. Objectives. Goals. Except… #TruthBomb ahead… You’re not chasing the goal. Newsflash: You’re chasing a feeling you hope the goal will give you. That distinction is key to transforming your life in ways beyond your wildest dreams.
 

What’s a Desire Map Workshop?


A Level 1 Desire Map Workshop, inspired by the bestseller The Desire Map by Danielle LaPorte, is a soul-heart-body experience that helps you feel good. Every day. It begins with getting clear on what you already have in your life, what you want to leave behind, and what you want to bring into the future with you. You’ll pinpoint the root of your desires. You’ll then create a map of how you desire to feel in the five key areas of your life. From this place of clarity, you’ll be guided to discover and declare your Core Desired Feelings. You’ll do all this while being supported in a sacred, loving environment. Then, once you are clear on how you actually want to feel in your life, you then set your intentions? Game-changer. So this February, create the life you want – the life you deserve and will LOVE.

Let this be the year you create your life with pure and powerful intention.


Every activity and exercise in this Level 1 Desire Map Workshop will support you in discovering your Core Desired Feelings, because something magical happens when you focus on how you want to feel:

 

*You remember your light, your true nature, your source.
*You use your preferred feelings as the foundation for goal-setting and making choices, and for being more present and alive.
*You can access comfort and clarity during painful times.
*You accentuate the positive aspects of your life, while still honouring, and not invalidating, the negative parts that you want to change.
*Knowing how you want to feel is one of the most important forms of clarity you can have.

After the Desire Map Workshop, you’ll feel the way you want to feel most of the time.

 

Decisions will be easier to make. You’ll know when to say “No, thank you” and “Definitely, yes!”

 

You’ll be more optimistic, more open-hearted.

 

Your life will ease up on the grinding and fill up with more of what you want.

 

I want to help you design a life that feels good: when you wake up, when you go to work, when you cook dinner, create something new. The Desire Map has changed the way I live my life, and I am so thrilled to share this experience with you.
