Breathwork + Heartwork with The Desire Map is a four-week virtual workshop where you'll release limiting beliefs and discover 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 this workshop, you will walk away with your Core Desired Feelings and use those to guide your life decisions in your career, your body, your creativity, your relationships, and your spirit.

Something magical happens when you begin to discover your core desired feelings:

  • 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 accentuate the positive aspects of your life, while still honoring, and not invalidating, the negative parts that you want to change.


Breathwork + Heartwork with The Desire Map begins with getting clear on what you already have in your life, what you are grateful for, and where you are dissatisfied. You’ll get clear on the root of your desire and create a map of how you want to feel in five areas of your life:

  • Lifestyle & Livelihood
  • Creativity & Learning
  • Body & Wellness
  • Relationships & Society
  • Essence & Spirituality

From that place of clarity, you’ll be guided to discover and declare your core desired feelings, all while being supported in a sacred, loving environment with other soul-seekers. Every activity and exercise supports you in discovering how you truly want to feel in your life.


Working with the mind to access the soul can be tricky making Breathwork the perfect pairing for Desire Mapping. This powerful active meditation will get you out of your head and connected to your body, the place your soul lives. Using this particular breathing pattern you'll activate your energy system and release limiting beliefs that may have been stored in your body for your lifetime. From this space of heart openness and deep inner peace, you'll do the work to uncover your Core Desired Feelings.

Breathwork is an incredible tool for healing, connecting you deeply to your body, opening your heart, and finding clarity. You'll be guided through this active meditation during the live workshops, and you'll also be able to use the technique you learn to practice on your own.


This is not just a four-week workshop. It's about teaching you to connect to your soul. It's about creating a guidance system for your life.

When you’re planning your yearly goals, holiday plans, building your career, you’ll have your core desired feelings in mind.

When you’re choosing whom to invite, how to react, what to give, you’ll have your core desired feelings in mind.

When you’re in pain, when you want things to be different, when choosing how to act, you’ll have your core desired feelings in mind.

When you go to sleep at night and when you wake up in the morning, you’ll have your core desired feelings in mind.


You! I'm a big believer in divine guidance. If you're reading this right now you're probably reading it for a reason. Are you ready to live a life that feels really good? Like, deep-down-in-your-soul-satisfied? That's the kind of life I live. It's the kind of life I'm committed to helping people live. 

So this workshop is for you if you want to connect to your soul, let go of all the stuff that's holding you back, and create a guidance system for your life. 

All men and women are welcome. We'll be creating a sacred space free of judgement where you'll be able to focus on healing, digging deep into your soul, and connecting with other beautiful souls doing the same.

We'll be using a video platform which will allow you to show your face if you like or share your questions and comments via a live discussion board if video isn't your thing. And each session will be recorded and available to watch on your own if you're not able to make all of the sessions live.



No problem! All sessions will be recorded and available to watch the day after.

Breathwork + Heartwork with The Desire Map | Pushing Beauty

My name is Michelle, and I stumbled into this practice called Breathwork a few years ago. Not long after I also discovered The Desire Map. You could say something led me to this work, that I was guided to exactly what I needed when I needed it. You could also say that you're here right now, reading these very words, because you are hearing exactly what you need to hear.

I'm most interested in working with people to empower them to let their souls shine bright. We all have the answers within us, and both Breathwork and The Desire Map are beautiful tools to help us access them. I'm so excited to bring them together to share with you.

Please feel free to email me with any questions you have.



"When I signed up for Breathwork + Heartwork with The Desire Map I was looking for something to help me create goals and intentions for my life that came from my heart rather than my head. Doing Breathwork before The Desire Map process changed everything. Even if I had managed to get to those CDFs without the Breathwork, I never would have felt as confident in them. I love that Michelle created this course! Breathwork is such a perfect way to help you connect to your heart's desires and quiet the filter of the shoulds & should nots, the inner critic and all the other things stopping you from living the life you really want. This course definitely brought me to a new level of understanding myself and what motivates me. If you follow Michelle on Instagram and her words resonate with you, then you will love working with her in person. Michelle's spirit is authentic, inspiring and uplifting without ever being overbearing or intrusive. Highly recommend." -Nina
The Desire Map

"I loved the combination of Breathwork AND the Desire Map. I have done the Desire Map alone, but the idea of the group dive was very intriguing to me. I wasn't disappointed! Michelle is a kind and patient facilitator. She created a safe and open environment in which to practice and hone the Desire Map process. She helped guide me through the process in ways I hadn't done for myself on my own. I feel I am much clearer on my CDF's now that I have worked with Michelle. I have already told as many people as I can about my experience. Given the chance, I would do it again too. There is nothing like the bond that develops among a group when they are fleshing out the deepest desires of their souls together." -Christie 

The Desire Map Michelle Luu

"Michelle created an inviting and safe space for all of us. She was engaging and she really listened with her heart. I felt comfortable being vulnerable and sharing my stories. I'm naturally an introvert so it felt amazing connecting with so many like minded women. I even stayed in contact with some of them! We started with Breathwork and that helped clear out negative energy. I was able to let go of lingering doubts about myself and my self worth. The Desire Map process was really exciting because I was finally able to put down in words what it is that I really want in life. I've always been a goal oriented person who leads a spiritual and balanced life. This process made it possible for me to really dig deep and focus on what truly matters. I LOVE my CDFs! I FEEL these words right down to my soul. My greatest takeaway from all of this is that I need to cut out things/experiences that don't make me feel my CDFs." -Michelle


"I was really interested in The Desire Map, but I *really* love breathwork. I've done breathwork sessions with Michelle before, and I knew by working with her I'd be gleaning so much more from The Desire Map, as opposed to approaching the books without the breathwork sessions to guide me. Through the workshop we discussed different chapters in the book, did breathwork, and afterwards took time to write about our emotions and what we really wanted for our lives. It was absolutely fantastic. Michelle was an incredible teacher. I loved working with her because she was very thoughtful and generous with her time and effort. The breathwork was paired seamlessly with The Desire Map." -Jessica

"I loved the merge of Breathwork and The Desire Map. Michelle's workshop showed me what areas I need to work on in my life, what is important in my life, and it taught me I have stuck energy that I am able to move! Breathwork really helped me get out of my head before diving into The Desire Map process."  

"When I signed up for Breathwork + Heartwork with The Desire Map I was feeling very scattered. I knew I needed a change in my life, but I was lacking direction and focus. Coming out of the workshop I feel focused and aware of what I desire. I am confident that I will use what I learned throughout the workshop in my everyday life. Discovering my CDFs has really helped me to take steps toward the life that I want to live, and Breathwork has helped me to get out of my head and look instead to my heart for guidance. This workshop made me realize that I am in control of creating the life I desire. I loved diving into the Desire Map process after breathwork. When I would go back to read my responses later in the week, I thought several times, 'where on earth did that answer come from? I never knew I felt that way', but every time it was spot on." -Jody
