start 2017 right:
create Goals with soul

We have the procedures of achievement upside down. Every New Year’s, we come up with our to-do lists, resolutions, bucket lists, and strategic plans — all the stuff we want to have, get, accomplish, and experience outside of ourselves. And here’s the heart of it all: All of those aspirations are being driven by an innate desire to feel a certain way.

So what if this year, we get clear on how we actually want to feel within ourselves, and then we design our to-do lists, set our goals, and make our resolutions?

Breathwork + Heartwork with The Desire Map is a six week virtual workshop on discovering what you want most out of your life. This is a brand new, holistic way to set New Year’s resolutions — with soul. 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 New Year’s 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. This is a revolution in goal-planning from the heart.


Breathwork + Heartwork with The Desire Map begins with getting clear on what you already have in your life, what you're grateful for, and where you're 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 six week workshop. It's about teaching you to connect to your soul. It's about creating a guidance system for your life. It's about making this year different than the rest.

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 immediately after they are done.

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

"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
"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."  -Patricia

"Working with Michelle really helped me learned that it's okay to feel ALL my emotions. She has also helped me dig deeper into what it is I'm really feeling which has helped me continue to discover something new about myself. You can tell when someone really wants to see you succeed, and with Michelle you can see the passion in her work and how she's rooting for you. She's just wonderful overall." -Alejandra


"With all my fear, anxiety and daily stress, I started going numb. After my healing sessions with Michelle, I slowly started tuning into what I really want and what my body is trying to communicate to me subtly. With Michelle's knowledge and experienced and with the Breathwork practice, a whole new dimension as been added to my life. This has been a new way of looking within for me to meet my soul." -Arjun


"I've come to many realizations about myself through Michelle's insights and the Breathwork practice she's taught me. I now know how to handle my once crushing anxiety. I've discovered things about myself I wasn't able to see clearly. Most recently, I've realized the vital role art plays in my life. Michelle has helped me find myself, and for that I am eternally grateful. She worked with me personally, giving me advice and information for furthering my inner journey. If you're looking to live a happier, more fulfilling life, work with Michelle." -Megan


"Breathwork is such a wonderful tool. I love the way my body radiates and buzzes after each session. As I become more tuned into my body I can feel the ulcers in my bladder healing and my organs working—it’s truly beautiful. After my first session I felt the happiest I've been in years." -Jessica, Mind Palace Podcast Co-Host


"I’ve taken a couple of Michelle’s courses, and she is such a humble, transformative, and positive force. Her Breathwork sessions are simply incredible. I feel so much clearer, focused, and grounded, and I can’t thank her enough for this."  -Melissa, Mind Palace Podcast Co-Host
