About Me

Hmmm, it can be difficult to talk about ourselves, can't it? Summoning my CDF's, here we go!

I am a wife. I am a mother. I am a friend. I am a teacher.
I had a growing successful business and it was stressful. The 2008 recession hit and it became more stressful. I ignored and buried how I was feeling. Chin up and do what you have to do, right? Eventually it became unbearable and I felt like I lost myself. I lost my soul. Meditation found me. It helped me through the stressful times and eventually it brought me back my soul. It brought me back 'me'. The best part of 'me' that had been laying dormant deep inside. I found more peace, contentment, empathy and compassion. More now. More present moment. Finding meditation was a gift that I will forever be grateful for.

I wanted to share what I had found so I began to study with davidji to become a Meditation Teacher. Both The Desire Map and meditation can be the same gift for anyone - just waiting for you to open it and share in the bounty that rests within. I truly believe that if I had gone through The Desire Map process and been aware of my CDF's, I would have made choices differently. I could have avoided a great deal of the pain that I endured during those stressful years.

I continue to study and learn in order to deepen my practice and my ability to teach and help others who may be feeling as I did. My CDF's have become a part of my every day life and decision making process - both consciously and unconsciously. A work in progress - and I love it! I read a quote recently that said that pleasure comes from things and experiences outside of ourselves, but true joy - that comes from within.

Q & A

Q: What are your Core Desired Feelings?

Freedom Genuine Abundance Courageous Limitless
All leading to Joy!

Q: How / where did you Desire Map? What did you love about doing it that way?

I heard about The Desire Map via a FB post by a friend who had become a licensee. I was immediately intrigued and drawn to the concept of both the book and becoming a facilitator. I did it at home by myself to truly see if I would still be as drawn to it once I completed the work. I loved it and could see so clearly how it could positively and profoundly impact peoples lives and become a wonderful asset in my teaching toolbox.

Q: Tell me a specific story about how knowing your CDFs has changed your life.

Not long after I completed the Desire Map and became a licensee, it was my turn to be the speaker at a networking meeting. I had previously attended for another business, but this was the first time I was the speaker and I was unsure of what I would say as Moonset Meditation didn't even have a name yet. I was just about to leave for the final in-house week of my Meditation Teacher training and I wasn't sure of what or how I would present what I planned to do. But my CDF's Genuine and Courageous were uppermost in my mind. I chose to open with a video that had been recorded at a retreat a few months previous - that I had only shown to three people. I had spoken from my heart about my journey to wanting to teach meditation, and basically bared my soul and the pain that led me to meditation. If I was to make an impact at that meeting, I needed to be true to my CDF's - all of them. So I summoned the COURAGE to be FREE to simply be me - my GENUINE self. I was able to share the ABUNDANCE that I felt in my heart and was INVIGORATED by the simple act of speaking my truth and the feedback that I received from those who were there. It became a truly JOYFUL experience. :-)

Q: Why are you passionate about sharing this work with others?

We often hear about “being a better you.” What about the notion that you are already pretty amazing? Do you need to be a “better you?” Or perhaps just more aware of what lies within and the wonder that surrounds you? Meditation and The Desire Map can help make that happen. I don’t want to make you a “better you.” I simply want to help you discover and feed some of those best parts of ‘you’ that may be lying dormant – or hidden – or denied. One small step and the journey begins. Bean by bean, the bag gets full. Peace, contentment, happiness, serenity, stress release. If not now, when?

Testimonials

Thank you for the journey that has restarted my life. I am no longer walking through life holding my breath.

N.P.

I had a wonderful experience at the retreat and would highly recommend it to others. The mix of activities was perfect and the length was just right. The food was absolutely amazing which made the experience even better! I left feeling whole - mind, body, spirit.

J.C.

It was a wonderful heartfelt and validating experience. The addition of a creative activity was a fabulous way to really connect with feelings, and the facilitator is such a warm-hearted person that you can't help but be drawn in.

C.D.

The event was amazing. Glenda and Sarah had set up a great weekend covering meditation, paverpol and energy healing as well as the desire map. It blended and flowed extremely well. It was peaceful, relaxing and very rewarding.

P.S.

Incredible, remarkable, awesome...I could go on. From the very first night to the final morning I was inspired, moved and touched by my 'singing heart'. Wonderful women sharing, laughing, crying - very moving and very awakening.
