Desire Map Workshops



The horses and I are over the moon excited to be featuring Desire Map Workshops, developed by Danielle LaPorte. 

We have put together a new retreat style that combines Desire Map and the Equine Gestalt Coaching Method™ (EGC.) We have titled these workshops – Celebrating Our Inner Awesome – because that is what they are and that is what we do. 

Please read on to learn more about why  we are so excited about the Celebrating Our Inner Awesome retreats.


You come to Discovery Horse to Discover Your Inner AWEsome right?
Well . . .the potential to find it, love it and then use it just got even more AWEsome. The horses and I are officially Desire Map Coaches and as of January 2015 we are going to be rocking some crazy fabulous retreats combining the Equine Gestalt Coaching Method™ and the Desire Map Workshops developed by Danielle LaPorte.

The question asked by the Desire Map is: How do you want to FEEL? Joyful? Connected? Energized? Passionate?

The next question: Do you want to design a life that allows you to live those Core Desired Feelings every day? Ummmm . . . .Hell Yes!!

This book, this workshop, isn’t just intellectual theory. It actually walks you through the process of practically (+ soulfully) creating a life that you actually want to live, connected to people, experiences and things that you actually want to be connected to.

So many of us aren’t living that way. We’re fixated on what others think we should do. We’re pushing ourselves to meet someone else’s expectations of The Great Mom, The Successful Businesswoman, The Patient Wife or The Forgiving Friend. And in all that striving to meet other people’s expectations, a lot of us have lost ourselves.

I spent two years training to be a certified Equine Gestalt Coach. . During that two years of training I was required to do a lot of personal work. I was asked to do exactly what I now ask my clients to do, go deep, go fast and run free. That training process was intense. It was hard and oh so worth it. The Desire Map is the perfect compliment to what the horses and I are doing, what I am doing over the phone with clients and what I am doing in retreat settings.

I am so excited to be able to offer you this new way of discovering your Inner AWEsome.  The horses and I are ready to raise awareness, shift perspective and embrace choice. It’s time to stop striving to have the things you want and instead to start living the way you want to feel. What comes after is icing on the cake.


There is an added bonus to the Desire Map retreats I will be offering. One of my Core Desired Feelings is adventure. I am taking this show on the road and that means more horses get the opportunity to step into their calling (only if they choose this of course). Horses have historically served humanity in selfless and thankless ways. One of the reasons I do the work eponallisa-bookI do is to give back to these amazing creatures. To give them a chance to fill out their skin and their spirits, to offer them a chance to show humanity what they are truly capable of. If you haven’t read the book Eponalisa by my mentor and teacher Melisa Pearce I highly recommend you pick up a copy. It is exactly what I am talking about . . .finding horses and giving them their calling. So, while you are mapping out your Core Desired Feelings, to live your life to FEEL how you want, we will be gifting the horses the same experience. Win Win if ever there has been one!

So now you are all inspired, excited to find your own Core Desired Feelings so you can sprinkle your life with MORE (insert whatever you want). You might be thinking, yeah horses, this sounds cool (or maybe not). Let me tell you a little more specifically about who this is for, and what you will walk away with.

Seriously, it is. There is not anyone that couldn’t benefit from this on some level. Maybe you see the shimmer of your Inner AWEsome or perhaps you are living the life dreams are made of. We can always add value.

Horses. Maybe you love them, maybe you ride them, maybe they scare the s%$t out of you. My answer is still the same. YOU. This isn’t about your sister who loves horses (although she can come too), the horses fill a very non-traditional role in this work. You don’t even have to touch one if you don’t want to. It is all challenge by choice. And yes, I do believe growth comes from discomfort, and ultimately you have control of your choices. We won’t be riding the horses, they are my partners, they are coaches and they are good ones, each with their own specialties. I can almost promise you will walk away ‘seeing’ horses in a way you never dreamed of, even if you have known and loved them all your life.


Let me give you a taste, you know, that sip of something AWEsome that is so good you want to buy the bottle . . . maybe even the case!

1st Sip: Three and a half days, 12 fabulous woman, Horses, Desire Mapping your way to what you want to feel like on a daily basis, the Equine Gestalt Coaching Method backing you up and destroying the excuses you might have that keep you from that daily life of AWEsome!

2nd Sip:

  • Engage with like-minded women in an authentic and safe environment. Groups of women are powerful entities who create powerful results.
  • Discover your Core Desired Feelings, how you truly do want to feel every day when you wake up. You, not your mom, your spouse or your boss. YOU!
  • Create lasting friendships. The kind of friendships that go beyond lunch once a month and the occasional phone call. This is the real deal. Even the introverts who attend find friendships of a lifetime, and usually quiet ones 😉
  • Explore what is keeping you stuck. Identify those limiting beliefs that don’t belong to you, the stories that are no longer serving you, the tapes that play in your head, and the excuses you make that keep you from expanding and filling out your beautiful amazing skin!
  • Connect to a deeper sense of self. To a higher sense of purpose. Connect and align with your Inner AWEsome.
  • Celebrate this crazy fun gift to self, new friendships, adventure to new lands, your fabulous Inner AWEsome and this unique one of kind experience.

Arizona, Maryland (June), Colorado (May), Minnesota, MAYBE Australia (November) and Costa Rica (How’s that sip?)

Other ways to Celebrate Your Inner AWEsome:
Not into retreats? We get it! We have options.

Option 1: Work with me over the phone and via Skype. We set the timeframe and I have some great package rates so you can create your own personal Desire Map from the comfort of your home!

Option 2: Personal Mini Retreats with the Horses. Yup, that’s right, you can have us all to yourselves. Spend a full day (or maybe two) with us generating your own personal Desire Map. This can be done in MN with us or I can come to you and work with you and your horse(s). Rates vary according to location and timeframe.

Option 3: You get the group together and we go from there.

  1. I can come to you and your horses
  2. You can come to the barn I call home
  3. We can do this without the horses. You get the group together and fly me to you (I LOVE traveling adventures). We spend a day or a weekend diggin deep and having fun!
