“THE TRUTH IS, THINGS HAVE BEEN DIFFICULT. I WANT TO SUGAR COAT I, PUT A SHINY SPIN AND RELAY THE LESSONS LEARNED, BUT AS I AGE AND SINK DEEPER INTO MY OWN SOUL, I VALUE AUTHENTICITY AND TRUTH OVER PRETTINESS AND NICETIES”

(Kelly Clark)


AS CLICHE AS IT SOUNDS, WE CAN’T POUR FROM AN EMPTY CUP.

SOMETIMES WE NEED OTHERS TO POINT OUT THE OBVIOUS.

TO GIVE OURSELVES PERMISSION TO PRIORITIZE OUR BASIC NEEDS.

“Be You. The world will adjust.”

If this speaks to you, I’d love for you to be a part of my IN-PERSON WORKSHOPS & RETREATS so we can uncover together who your truly are, want and express it fully in your everyday life. I am offering In-person Restorative Workshops + Retreats in my home in Valbonne, South of France.


“CHANGE IS A 3 LEGGED STOOL.

THESE 3 LEGS ARE BEHAVIOURS, THOUGHTS, AND FEELINGS.

WHO WE ARE IS NOT ONLY BASED ON WHAT WE THINK BUT ALSO HOW WE FEEL AND HOW WE BEHAVE. YOU TAKE ANY OF THOSE 3 PILLARS AWAY AND WE TOPPLE OVER.”

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, The Forgiving Friend or The well-behaved patient.

And in all that striving to meet other people’s expectations, a lot of us have lost ourselves.

  • I know it’s been a long journey, but you persisted when it would have been so much easier to quit.
  • When we think about creating sweeping change in our lives, it often seems distant with many obstacles on the way. Our own life seems to get in the way. I know this journey, because it’s been my own.
  • You need someone (not a family member or even a dear friend) out there to guide you to see the potential for you to re-invent your life.
  • The next leg of your journey is about to begin, but this time I’ll be right there with you, offering unwavering support and guidance as you uncover your darkest – and most radiant – depths.

Now, I understand that there’s a real fear underneath.

TEMPLE

[for mapping your desires]

is a 2 day in-person workshop for discovering what you want most out of your life.

  • Based on the best-selling book The Desire Map, we get straight to the heart of the matter: How you want to feel?
  • At the end of the Level 1 workshop, you’ll walk away with your Core Desired Feelings and use those to guide your life decisions in your career, your health, your creativity, your relationships.
  • In the level 2 workshop, you’ll take the Core Desired Feelings you clarified in Level 1 and attach them to the practical things you want to do, have and experience in your life. “Spiritual pragmatism”. You’ll go after the goals infused with so much more clarity.

It’s a course for connecting your Core Desired Feelings to your life’s intentions.

Yes, that powerful.

Now, imagine getting clear on how you deeply want to feel, learning how to embody and bring those feelings to life.

With ease.
Daily.
Body feels relaxed,
Mind feels at peace,
Inner voice feels heard.
Finally.

You can finally navigate your life transition, step into the new chapter of your life, trust that you truly desire will light your way and create the goals you really vibrates with.

Even in difficult times.

The Desire Map is your own holistic tool to help you course correct your life path when you need it the most.

Something almost magical happens when you focus on creating your core desired feelings:

  • You remember your true nature, you course correct and create a a life that feel just like you. Unique. Custom made around your specific needs.
  • 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 accentuate the positive aspects of your life, while still honoring, and not invalidating, the negative parts that you want to change.

A LITTLE BIT ABOUT ME


I’M SHENOA:
French Visual Artist, Workshops & Desire Map Facilitator
and Mother of 3 children.

I DESIGN AND HOST BOLD CREATIVE JOURNEYS FOR MOTHERS & NURTURERS IN NEED TO RE-INVENT AND RE-ALIGNED THEMSELVES.
I use Mixed Media Art to explore inner and outer landscapes and I guide others to do the same.

THE CORE OF WHAT I AM DOING IS TO OFFER

  • a sacred place, for women to RE-CONNECT to who they are under layers of SHOULD & COULD.
  • a nurturing circle for women to EXPLORE how it feels to color your life without minding those silly self-imposed “dotted lines” of the somewhat comfort zone or security zone that we’ve been conditioned to say within.
  • a community of like-minded women to support you, to RE-KINDLE your spark.

I USE DESIRE MAPPING, RITUALS, VISUAL ARTS AS TOOLS AND MEDICINE TO HEAL OUR SCARS & EXPAND OUR WORLD OF POSSIBILITIES.

  • I’ve been through severe rough patches, made “nasty” compromises and possible “questionable” choices.
  • I’ve experienced many life transitions, suffered unbearable loss, moved on, created many altars, repeated many times the same mistakes, read compulsively self-help books, felt connected and disconnected from my “Source”, experienced too many times the feeling of “why me?”.
  • I’ve been hurt and wounded, lost myself until I realized that I got what I tolerated. This was the beginning of a healing journey to reclaim the same I needed to expand, be brave and grow stronger.

THE DESIRE MAP WORKSHOP LEVEL 1 IS FOR YOU EVEN IF YOU THINK YOU’VE TRIED EVERYTHING AND EVEN IF YOU FEEL THE UNIVERSE IS AGAINST YOU.

Yes, I know how it feels to both welcome the changes, still mourn the past and at the same time dread the future.

  • I also know how it feels to become more resilient, to use creativity as medicine, to feel in my bones that we are more than we think we are.
  • I truly believe that everything we’re going through right now is the doorway to our own healing and expansion.

WHAT IS THE DESIRE MAP?

THE DESIRE MAP IS A POWERFUL TOOL
TO LIVE YOUR LIFE FOLLOWING
YOUR “CORE DESIRED FEELINGS”,
YOUR “PREFERRED STATES OF BEING”

 

IMAGINE A GPS TO YOUR SOUL.
A ROAD MAP WHERE YOU CAN CHOOSE IF YOU WANT TO WALK ON

  • “THE HAPPY TRAIL”,
  • “THE RADIANT AVENUE”,
  • “THE FREEDOM ALLEY”,
  • “THE SHAKTI PATH”,
  • “THE DARING ROUTE”,

THIS IS WHAT THE DESIRE MAP IS ALL ABOUT.
CREATING YOUR LIFE MAP FOLLOWING YOUR VERY OWN CORE DESIRED FEELINGS.

The Desire Map life philosophy?

Getting clear on how you want to feel

This brings a new vocabulary in your life, a new attitude and therefore create some very positive shifts.
Desire Mapping with me will help you to fully own your own space, to take responsibility for the life you created based on the choices that you made so far.

(Tony Robbins)

The words that will resonate with you in your body + soul are the medicine you need in this moment of your life. It’s all about resonance. It’s vibrating with the truth of who you are.

THE WORDS THAT YOU USE BECOME YOUR REALITY. SO YOU’LL LEARN TO CHOOSE THEM WISELY.

WHO IS IT FOR?

  • If you are in a place right now where you feel like too many different life changes has thrown you for a loop, keep reading.
  • If you feel lost, not being able to figure out what we truly want in life anymore, sort of “on track” but “off purpose”. This is a sign that you are on the edge of something that matters.
  • If you feel paralyzed and you don’t know who you are and/or where to go from there, if answering the simple question “what do you like to do?” send you in complete panic mode, something important is happening here.
  • If you feel you are pushing yourself to meet someone else’s expectations: The Great Mom, The Successful Businesswoman, The Patient Wife or The Forgiving Friend to name a few, stay with me, please know that you are doing no one a favor.
  • If you feel overwhelmed with commitments, responsibilities, activities, and well, life in general and you had kinda’ lost that intimate, centered connection with yourself, keep on reading.
  • If you feel you are “more” but still looking at what “more” can be, you are at the right place.
  • If you’ve had enough of trying to trick yourself into happiness through blurry affirmations of bucket-listing your hopes into some distant future, then you’re ready for The Desire Map.

IF YOU ARE STILL READING THIS SO FAR:


  • YOU ARE READY TO FEEL GRATEFUL FOR THE SIGNS THAT LEAD YOU TO WHER YOU ARE NOW
  • YOU ARE DONE FEELING THE WAY YOU FEEL ( FRUSTRATED / STUCK / NOT GOOD ENOUGH /AFRAID / UNSURE, ETC.)
  • YOU ARE WILLING TO WALK ON YOUR RESILIENT PATH THROUGH GRIEF, ANGER, SADNESS,
  • YOU ARE IN YOUR VULNERABLE / OPEN ZONE (THE BEST TO DO THIS WORK)
  • YOU FEEL IN YOUR HEART THAT IT’S A NEW SEASON MEANT TO BE IN YOUR LIFE

Declaring, naming, invoking your Core Desire Feelings every day is key to unlocking your true self.

Everything I teach is a practice. Intuitive painting is a practice. Resilience building is a practice. Desire Mapping is a practice.

You are worthy of your desires and if you commit to wanting what you want, honoring your desires, and put them at the center of your daily plans, you’ll rise up and walk your talk on your most preferred trail.”

(Shenoa)

WHY I BECAME A DESIRE MAP FACILITATOR


When The Desire Map came into my life, I just moved back from 6 years in California to France in the outskirt of Paris (my country of origin but I’m from South of France ). This was 10 years ago. Not my personal choice, but it was the right thing to do at that time. But my deep burning truth was I felt like I was going back to “Square One”. I wasn’t in a happy place. I was back “in transition mode” one more time. Unrooted. I came across Danielle Laporte’s work back when she just wrote her first book “The Fire Starter Sessions”. I read the book cover to cover. Danielle Laporte was telling “me” that it was up to me to choose the way I wanted to feel about this experience. What was she talking about ?

All I know is that it was the seed that got planted and showed up in my life at the right moment. When her second self published book called “The Desire Map” got published, it resonated with me the right way on a really deep level. It’s actually the side effect of this book: either it does or it does not. And when it does, get ready for some big changes because it shifts things around in a profound way.

The Desire Map was another big steeping stone in my life that guided me on my journey to what was next. The journey to where I’m now was very long and very bumpy, loaded with doubts and self-sabotages. It took me a while to actually put it into a regular practice The Desire Map and to see the change happening as I was getting clear on how I truly want to feel, experience, create and live my life. That said, I’m still often catching myself spiraling down into the wrong energy.

So I go on “Desire Map rehab”. Read the book again, or parts of it, revisit my CDF. Create new ways to do the exercises and course correct. The Desire Map gives me permission to acknowledge and honor the way I felt about things happening in my life. The good & bad ones. A game changer.


WHEN WE ARE ALIGNED WITH “WHY” WE ARE HERE, OUR WORLD TRANSFORMS.
WE BECOME A LAMPLIGHTER FOR OTHERS.


The Desire Map gives room to be more yourself. “What you focus on, expands”. I believe that BRAVE is the new BLACK. I’m not talking about the kind of bravery that involve super hero powers. I’m talking about the bravery that embraces faith and fears with the same hug; faith and something larger than yourself with the same love.

Being an creative introvert, becoming a Desire Map Facilitator embodies my very first Core Desired Feeling which was Raw & Bold. My motivation needed to by larger than my fears. This very CDF took me here today, helped me write those lines.

When you start living those Desire Map principles, you become more fully who you are and that’s the gift that you will then give to the world once you shine your bright light. It’s a powerful transformative work.


WHAT’S DESIRE MAPPING WITH SHENOA?

  • As a Desire Map Facilitator, my work is to “hold the space” for you and gently guide you.
  • In my workshops, you can expect a safe place to experience a shift, to surrender and connect with their newly discovered Core Desire Feelings. You feel ready for life and what comes your way because you’ll have some practical tools to be fully present in your life.
  • YES, I don’t have all the answers : you do. My part is to help you uncover them. That’s right, I hold you accountable and responsible for your own transformation and exploration. Once again, you have all the answers within you.
  • The Desire Map workshops are held by a sacred sanctuary that we create together. When held in the South of France, it’s in my own sacred place. I’m here to support you through this courageous exploration of what you truly desire in your life and daring to be all of what you actually are.

As we go soul deep with desire mapping, we’ll create meaningful Artwork along the way.

You will:

  • Uncover your own myths, unearth your true desires, be inspired on how to anchor them in your daily life and create a soulful art piece that you’ll be so ridiculously proud of. To keep your CDF/ mantras in full sight, art gallery-style.
  • Gain the creative courage (part of the natural process once you unleash your vulnerability), to look inside yourself for answers. Then, we’ll put it in your soulful art/work. Your uncovered CDF’s will lead the way, perspire in your work and help you shine a brand new light : your very own light. This is when creativity meet resiliency.

What happens when you use Desire Mapping mix with creativity?

You shift.

  • Using creative arts & craft shortcuts your “monkey mind”. You start thinking with your heart and not your head only anymore. You begin to see things from a new more empowered place.
  • Going through the vulnerable places and secrets we hold, getting them out and expressing them visually brings you more closely to the real you. You’ll go from what you feel is desperation to inspiration.

“Creativity is more than you think. Desire Mapping is more than you think. Bring them together and you create ALCHEMY.”

  • A pre-workshop welcoming package sent by mail one week prior to DAY ONE to get to know each other, to prep you so we can dive right in on Saturday morning
  • 2 days guided by Shenoa through The Desire Map™ process, exploring paths to re-connect with yourself.
  • This is the way we roll: Day ONE and day TWO are separated by 2 weeks. Let me explain.

This workshop formula is created especially for busy mothers/women who will find easier to take one day for yourself every 2 weeks versus a full weekend.
  • Ceremonies & rituals to celebrate your rites of passage
  • Emotional relief from finding what truly resonates with you in this particular moment of your life.
  • Deeply nourishing organic snacks and non-alcoholic beverages so you can stay sharp and alert when diving into what you really desire to re-invent your life

Transportation to and from the workshops venue is not included.
Lunch is not included. You’re welcome to bring your lunch box, order pizza or sushi or go to the village to grab a bite. I can offer recommendations.

“DESIRE MORE?
YA, YOU DO.”

The Desire Map Workshop Level 2 is the practical application of the core desired feelings that you identified in the Level 1 Workshop. This is where clarity meets action. In the next level of the Desire Map process, you will:

  1. Explore perceptions of goals and goal-setting in relationship to ambition, external approval, and “success.”Most people will identify at least one pattern of behavior related to goal-setting that has been restricting their capacity for freedom. In this workshop, we create a sacred space that will help you meaningfully reorient your relationship with goals into one that helps you do, have, and experience what you most desire to feel.
  2. Identify a handful of goals or intentions that are aligned with your core desired feelings and create a plan to support them.You may want not want to set any goals. You might want to set one hundred goals that are attached to precise measurables. All of that is totally good with me. I am here to support you in your journey.

HERE’S THE PROBLEM WITH TRADITIONAL GOAL SETTING

Intentions and goals are tools for liberation. So when we use goal chasing like a hammer, it can beat up on our self-esteem, relationships, and creativity. Setting the goal, pursuing it, and achieving the goal is supposed to feel good. If you’re going to set “goals to die by,” then, well, God bless ya. But there is a better way…

(Feeling good is the whole point.)

GOALS WITH SOUL

When you are clear on how you most want to feel, you turn traditional goal setting inside out. Constant racing for success creates habitual and unconscious goal-setting. The Goals with Soul workshop is going to help you relearn how to move toward your dreams — with trust and well-placed devotion. The more you choose your core desired feelings over your external objectives, the more content you will become.

Go after the goals that nourish your spirit, with your core desired feelings as the compass. Goals with Soul will energize you and, when you’re on track moving toward such goals, life will keep throwing synchronicities your way.

Feeling good is the whole point.

I have been there. I understand. I took so many workshops while living my expat life in California many years ago.
Feeling completely un-rooted, with almost no known soul to connect with at first, a brand new baby on its way, I signed up for so many classes and workshops : yoga, art classes, mummy to be boot camps, you name it!

Some were really good, some not so much. The trouble was I did not know what to expect or had no answers to my questions.
If you’re in the position to be considering attending my art+soul workshops – but are on the fence for whatever reason – because you don’t know anyone else going, because you’re not sure it’s worth the money, because you’re not sure you’ll gain anything from it, here are my two cents with my “have been there, done that” understanding.

I anticipated some of your main concerns and try to address them the best I could.

I also know that when it comes to time and money I always talk to my husband before making a decision. And as significant others do, they usually also have their own concerns. All valid and worthy of our attention.

I created a bunch of FAQ that concerns them directly. I am hoping this will help you communicate successfully with your loved ones.

And remember:

“Fear is trusting your own powers”
Marianne Williamson
(from her book “A return to love”)

“In a world filled with books, blogs, and magazine articles wanting to give us directions with how-to this and seven steps to that, we are stuck in a limited view. Just like when someone gives you directions to get from point A to point B in your car – you are consumed with looking only for the street signs and landmarks they have indicated. And if you happen to be distracted and miss one, you’re lost. You miss the entire landscape in your preoccupation with signposts.”
