You're either madly in love with your life, or you're stuck.
If you're stuck, ask yourself: How do I want to feel?

What if your journey felt the way you want the destination to feel? It can. It will.

 

Private coaching sessions are tailored to the framework of Danielle LaPorte's Desire Map and Core Desired Feelings. The Desire Map is your catalyst to begin living the life you want to live, like deep down in your soul want to live. Core Desired Feelings give you clarity, permission, and freedom like nothing else can. 

 

What is The Desire Map? What are Core Desired Feelings? 

Core Desired Feelings are the framework of Danielle LaPorte's work The Desire Map. Core Desired Feelings are your catalyst to begin living the life you want to live, like deep down in your soul want to live. Once you know how you want to feel, you start saying yes and no based on what will make you feel that way. They are your clarity, permission, and freedom. 

THINK: GOALS WITH SOUL.

Because you're not chasing the goal itself. You're chasing a feeling. You're chasing the feeling you hope to have when you reach the goal. So instead, pause and ask yourself: How do I want to feel? This a paradigm shift, a game changer. The Desire Map flips the script on goal setting and teaches you how to feel the way you want to feel every single day. Your whole journey begins to feel the way you want the destination to feel.

After I moved through The Desire Map and discovered my Core Desired Feelings, I left my 15-year university career, lost over 100 lbs, sold everything I owned, and rebuilt my entire life on my terms. Oh, and I also bought a one-way ticket to Bali. I now travel around the world full-time and earn a living doing what I love most: facilitating deep, structural change. Radical change. The power of living your life in support of your Core Desired Feelings is profound. 

I want that for you. 

I flew from San Francisco to Salt Lake City, having never met Gail but knowing I needed to work with her. She was exactly what I hoped she’d be. I now have permission, in a very direct way, to make big decisions for myself. It’s as if she’s given me a road map for everything I do. Permission! I’ve already said to myself, ‘Oh nope, can’t/won’t do that because it’s not aligned with my core desires.” Permission is a beautiful thing!
— Anne Boswell, Desire Map retreat alumni

Private Coaching Objectives

The benefit of private coaching is that I can zig + zag through these objectives, depending entirely on what you need and what will give you the best experience.

  • Create a sacred space, a container for your soul's work. 

  • Dive in to the concepts of gratitude & dissatisfaction, learning how they are critical to designing your best life. 

  • Meditate. Breathe. Rest. You deserve time for yourself, time to do this work. Give yourself that gift.

  • Identify areas in your life that feel the way you want them to feel and areas that leave you feeling stuck. We explore five categories: Lifestyle + Livelihood, Creativity + Learning, Body + Wellness, Relationships + Society, Essence + Spirituality.

  • Flip the script on endless to-do lists and everything you've been taught about goal setting. No more striving. No more. 

  • Surrender your fear, your guilt, your shame. Surrender it all. Say NO. Say YES. Begin guiding yourself with your Core Desired Feelings. Begin doing whatever you need to do to live your life on your terms. 

  • Discover and/or reinforce your Core Desired Feelings. You will give yourself permission to ask (and to answer): How Do I Want To Feel? Your Core Desired Feelings are a soulful guidance system; by far the most revolutionary focus you can adopt to catalyze your best life. You will leave with your Core Desired Feelings in hand, and in heart.

  • Celebrate. Because liberation is pretty damn exciting.

Gail’s style as a facilitator is phenomenal. She uses the right amount of probing questions to find your Core Desired Feelings, blended with her personal experiences going through her own CDF journey. I felt such a personal connection to her because she can relate to my feelings of being overworked, tired, and missing my spark! Finding my Core Desired Feelings is like a weight is lifted.
— Arianne Prina King, Desire Map workshop attendee (January 2015)

Private Coaching Outcomes

You will leave your coaching sessions with:

  • Clarity. You will leave with the sacred clarity of your Core Desired Feelings. As The Desire Map author Danielle LaPorte says, "Knowing how you actually want to feel is the most potent form of clarity you can have."
  • Permission. If you're not yet living a life you love, that you designed, on your own terms...then by definition something is holding you back. You will leave fully empowered and ready to give your dreams permission to manifest. Without guilt. Without shame. Without apology.
  • Freedom. You will begin living your new life with the knowledge that you are aligned, centered, in pure flow. Your Core Desired Feelings guide you to say YES, to say NO, to design the life you want to live. Liberation is yours for the taking.
After the first day I immediately began to utilize the tools given to me. Things have been happening already! I’m no longer fighting what I feel in order to contain what I think might be “wrong.” Every day now I’m doing what my spirit tells me and really listening! Absolutely life changing!
— Ginger Stoneking, Desire Map workshop attendee (January 2015)

Is private coaching right for you?

Private coaching can guide you to your Core Desired Feelings and it can design an integration plan for you to live your Core Desired Feelings. Private coaching is right for you whether you want clarity + motivation to take action on the core desired feelings you came to on your own, or if you're new to all of this and want to experience a customized Desire Map process start to finish! 

Just imagine: A private retreat customized for you and what you uniquely need to design a life you're totally in love with. Undivided attention, personalized support. We'll communicate by email in between coaching sessions and you'll have lifetime access to the ongoing support of the private mastermind group on Facebook.

It initially felt scary, knowing I was going to analyze big changes I need in my life. I was worried I’d be resistant; but Gail’s facilitation - her vulnerability, bravery, and support - made it safe. My biggest takeaway is that I’m in more control of my life and how I want to feel than I ever believed before.

A few words about your coach

suzanie sideeye_round.jpeg

MY NAME IS GAIL JESSEN.

I'M A FIRE STARTER.

I facilitate clarity, permission, freedom, and holistic health.
I liberate women who are sick and tired of being sick and tired.

For 33 years I was misaligned, living my life based on rules I didn't create. I was an overachieving stress case addicted to external validation. I toughed it out, I sucked it up, I did what good girls are "supposed" to do. I was miserable. Real talk. 

After being diagnosed with Hashimoto’s, an autoimmune disease that attacks the thyroid + adrenals, I'd had enough. I began to deconstruct my life and rebuild it on my terms. Within one year I sold everything I owned, lost over 100 lbs, left my 15-year university career, launched my business, and booked a one-way ticket to Bali. I'm now traveling the world working with women like you who are also sick and tired of feeling sick and tired, women who are ready to radically change their lives. 

My Core Desired Feelings: I am wild, magical, supple, and luminous.
