The Desire Map

What do you keep choosing instead of what you really want? 

The Desire Map is a goal-setting process that shows you how to ocus on how you want to feel. When you lead with desire, you come alive to your pleasure and your power.  

Interested in hosting a Desire Map book club? I've facilitated several cycles of Desire Map book clubs since the book was published. The process has become my compass and constant companion in my journey towards self-actualization. For the cost of the Desire Map Book Club bundle, I'm happy to facilitate a five-session meetup by phone or in person in Oahu.

Click here to purchase the book club bundle, and I'll be in touch with you about setting up your Desire Map Book Club. Your purchase is tracked through this link. If you don't hear from me within 2 days of purchase, please email me at helloitsme[at]melissamail.net so that I can confirm your order.

The Art of Selfishness

The Art of Selfishness is an open conversation and practice about and for  the "too much" woman. Each week, I'll share insights and perspectives on what I'm reading, watching, observing, and participating in, covering everything from food, desire, intimacy, sex, relationships, parenting, career, healing mother wounds, getting support, and whatever else comes up.

Each week, I'll go deep and into the dark discomfort for women, holding space for the full and complete expression of our wildness, femininity, truth, and desire.

Become a member: Members of The Art of Selfishness will receive exclusive access to a special live discussion and coaching session following each episode.

coming spring 2017

Overflow

Overflow is an introduction to Truth + Desire Lab. So much of how we move through the world as woman is centered around the sacrifices we make for others. We put others first and ourselves last, even when we don’t have much to give. We’re taught to believe that this kind of giving is a virtue, an act of love and kindness that makes us “good” woman. But this kind of giving depletes us and can foster anger and resentment, leaving us to feel less loving and kind, especially with ourselves. Overflow invites women to tune in and turn on to their desires, their creativity, and their power in order to fill themselves all the way up. When women are turned on and overflowing, they create a ripple effect that inspires and empowers other woman as well.

Overflow is for self-identified woman of all backgrounds and abilities. During the first half of Overflow, you’ll engage in movement and/or breathwork, followed by a facilitated discussion of your experience and how you can carry it into your everyday life. After Overflow, you’ll learn about Truth + Desire Lab and how to take your practice of desire further.

Intro to Desire

In The Power of Myth, Joseph Campbell writes, “People say that what we’re all seeking is a meaning for life. I don’t think that’s what we’re really seeking. I think that what we’re seeking is an experience of being alive, so that our life experiences on the purely physical plane will have resonances with our own innermost being and reality, so that we actually feel the rapture of being alive.”

When is the last time you you had an experience that made you feel most alive in your body? Intro to Desire explores what’s possible when women tune in to their desires and tap into their pleasures. By focusing on the way we want to feel in our bodies and in our lives, we’ll discover what truly nourishes us. Together, we'll learn to lead with our desires without guilt or shame.


Truth + Desire Lab Intensive

This 9-month deep dive is for 12 women who are intentionally living juicy and turned on lives by their own design. Together, we'll go deeper into our desires to unlock our creativity and power for more pleasure and more connection in our bodies and in our lives.

Enrollment in Truth + Desire Lab Intensive is by invitation and application.
