Resolutions Out. Revolutions In.

A New Year Desire Map Workshop

Led by Mariah MacCarthy (Life Coach and Writer) and Diana Stahl (Healer and Writer)

January 5-7, 2018

How highly do I recommend doing The Desire Map with Mariah? To the moon and back. This was a life altering process and Mariah’s soul is so beautiful and generous, she makes the process easy and fun. Take her up on this. Change your life.

I was burnt out at my job, confused about relationships, and most of all I really wanted some sense of balance in my life but felt overwhelmed and didn’t know where to start. Even though I told Mariah, “I don’t do feelings,” as we went through the Desire Map process together, I began to get the clarity I was looking for. At the end of our final session, I had a solid sense of my short-term and long-term goals, and felt like I was on the path toward achieving them. I highly recommend this process, even if you think you “don’t do feelings.”
— Jen H.
The Desire Mapping process was really fun and helped me make time to think about me for a change, and Mariah makes this process fun.
— Jaime M.R.
I keep thinking about all the work I did through the Desire Map workshop and how thankful I am for that foundation as I move toward the new year. I feel so ready and more equipped than ever to say yes to what I want and no to things that would only be distractions. You’re magic and light.

Thank you for offering this workshop and guiding me and the other participants through some tough stuff in a safe space :) I’m so glad I did this!

This year, let’s turn traditional New Year’s goal setting on its head. Let this be the end of resolution-ditching by February. Here’s how (and it’s deceptively simple): instead of starting with external goals, I want you to discover how you want to feel.

Before you set your resolutions — the things you hope to attain, achieve, and accomplish — first, think about how you want those things to make you feel. When you wake up in the morning, when you get in your car, while you make dinner, while you’re planning your vacations…

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

My wish for you is that making empowered choices comes easily to you. That’s why I’m inviting you to my special New Year’s Desire Map workshop: Resolutions Out. Revolutions In.

This workshop, inspired by the best seller The Desire Map by Danielle LaPorte, is a soul-heart-body experience that helps you feel good. Every day. This is a revolution in goal-planning from the heart.

We begin with getting clear on what you already have in your life, reflecting on the previous year, what you want to leave behind, and what you want to bring into the future with you.

Because let’s be real: broadly speaking, 2017 was a crap year.

But poop is also fertilizer.

With the help of my magnificent comrade Diana Stahl, we’re going to create a sacred, loving space where you can use that fertilizer to grow the garden of your 2018. We promise you discovery, meditations, community ritual, homemade meals, and dance breaks - all alongside your fellow soul-seekers.

You’ll get clear on the root of your desires and create a map of how you desire to feel. From that place of clarity, you’ll be guided to discover your core desired feelings, and set goals using those feelings as your North Star. This is a new, holistic way to plan your New Year’s Resolutions.

Something magical happens when you focus on how you want to feel:

  • You remember your light, your true nature, your source — the life source that connects us all.
  • You use your preferred feelings as a guidance system for making choices and for being more present and alive.
  • You are able to access comfort and clarity during painful times.
  • You feel gratitude for the positive aspects of your life, while still honoring and validating 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. Decisions will be easier to make. You’ll know when to say “No thank you” and “Hell yes!” You’ll be more optimistic, more openhearted. Your life will ease up on the grinding and and fill up with more…ease. 2018 is yours.

I want to help you design a life that feels good: when you wake up, when you go to work, when you cook dinner, when you create. I’d be honored to support you in doing everything that makes you come alive at this workshop.

The workshop will be over the course of two-and-a-half days. We'll transform. We'll dance. We'll co-create. We'll be clear. We'll name our desires.
