Create a Compass for Your SOUL in 2019

July 11-14 | Kelowna, BC

A beautiful, connected, introspective adventure to meet your soul’s desires.

You were perfectly created and you are worthy of your desires. You KNOW this, maybe you just don't FEEL it sometimes...


You deserve to embrace a life that lights you up and to go after it with beautiful clarity, confidence and courage.


"Knowing how you actually want to feel is the most potent form of clarity that you can have."

—Danielle LaPorte, author of "The Desire Map"—


Join an intimate group of empowered, creative, like-minded and like-hearted women to embark on an inner journey to learn your deepest desires, center yourself deeply in your heart, catapult your belief in yourself, move your body to get our of your head, and know deeply what is right for you.


Reconnect to your most essential self,

and discover how you want to feel in your life.








Maybe you feel like you’ve lost some of yourself – through motherhood, a not-quite-fulfilling career or soul-sucking job, a divorce, a broken heart, an illness, caring for someone else who is ill, or


Or maybe you’re feeling a little overwhelmed and unsure. Who is this person? What happened to me? Is there more for me? Yes!


Sister, it's time to rediscover your essence and create a compass for your soul. It's time to set an intention to feel good every day.


You deserve that. And knowing your core desires is the first step to getting you there!





GET COMFORTABLE: We will gather in a stunning Retreat House in Kelowna, BC in the heart of the beautiful Okanagan Valley with sacred mountains, beautiful lake vistas, vineyards and orchards surrounding us. You will be comfortable and pampered and feel safe and seen.


GET CONFIDENT and CONNECTED: We will journal, move our bodies, quiet our minds in meditation, create safe spaces for and support one another, get outside and connect with ourselves and each other on another level to amplify our confidence and connection.


GET CLEAR: We will work through Danielle LaPorte's Desire Map process, which is a program for clarifying what you truly want in every area of your life, and using that powerful awareness to guide your everyday choices.






Together we will create sacred space, (inner and outer) and burn limiting beliefs (figuratively, and maybe literally.)


As we go soul deep with desire mapping, we’ll bend our bodies, expand our hearts with breath work, spend a little time in nature, and open our minds to infinite possibilities. We’ll offer up our own wisdom, connect deeply, and learn from each other — like women always do.


You’ll leave this weekend knowing your core desired feelings, which will act as a guidance system for your decisions and goals after our retreat.


You will make some soul-anchored declarations and attach them to some every day PLANS. This experience will change your life.


Are you ready for soul liberation?






This could be for you if you say YES! to any of the following:


  • I'm ready to create abundance in every area of my life — health, wealth, relationships!
  • I'm ready to fully know myself, to start making some changes and to step into my power!
  • I know there’s more to life than what I’ve been doing and I want to access it THIS YEAR!
  • I take care of everyone else around me and I KNOW I can’t thrive on an empty tank, so I’m READY to make myself a priority!
  • I often collapse into my bed after putting my kids down for the night, only to wake up disappointed that I didn’t get X, Y, or Z done, and didn’t get any of the ‘adult time’ or ‘me time’.
  • I crave soulful, meaningful connections and conversations and feel like I’m not getting enough of that in my life.
  • I’m often unsure of whether or not my decisions are TRULY taking me down the path I was meant to walk in this life. I’m fairly certain there is MORE!
  • I know I want MORE in my life but I'm not sure what that is exactly or how to get there.
  • I feel irritated with or snap at my family members, friends, colleagues or people in my life because they don’t understand me. I just don’t feel SEEN.
  • I’ve heard about this elusive thing called a ‘boundary’, but I just don’t know how to set and maintain clear ones — I often feel let down and disappointed in my relationships.
  • I KNOW that "you become like the 5 people you surround yourself with" and I’m terrified that I'm becoming less of who I’m meant to be because of my unhealthy relationships.
  • I don’t love my job and have been trying to figure out what to do differently, but I feel a little trapped.
  • I feel like I'm playing small in my life and not living the life I was born to live. My work feels heavy, my relationships feel heavy, my body feels heavy, and I don’t know how to shift it.

If you said "YES!” to any of this,

then you’re here for a reason:

Whether you're a goal-setter/go-getter or a seeker who prefers to go with the flow, knowing your cored desired feelings will serve you.



Why can't I just desire map on my own?

Of course you can Desire Map on your own, but why would you want to when you could be connecting with a group of like-hearted, supportive sisters? You will feel seen, loved, accepted and understood. The immersive quality of a retreat experience creates change and builds bonds that are hard to replicate in any other form. If you crave connection, immersion and a little break from your everyday life, a retreat could be right for you. If not, and Desire Mapping on your own also isn't for you, Carla also offers in-person and virtual coaching and workshop options for you. Scroll to the bottom and drop us a line!

Meet Your Conscious Creation Retreat Leader & Coach

Desire Map Facilitator CARLA DAWES

Hi friend! I’m Carla. I'm a photographer, communications consultant, standup paddleboard instructor, entrepreneur, nature lover, reformed perfectionist, doting mom, fitness junkie and intro to meditation for kids & teens instructor. I live in beautiful Kelowna, BC. I have spent my life seeking adventures and self improvement and FINALLY, in my 40s I feel like I am emerging as my TRUE self, living the AUTHENTIC life that I was born for, yet still growing into myself every day.


Danielle LaPorte's book "The Desire Map" flipped my ENTIRE approach to goals on its head. I always had dreams and set goals, but I never fully understood WHY I wanted the things I did. I put all these things on my '40 things to do before I'm 40' list, but even when they were done, many of them felt a little disconnected for me. I wanted to stop doing and start BEING. Desire Mapping helped me recognize that some of the things I wanted were not MY things at all — they were just things society told me I wanted, or in some cases, things I wanted for the 'wrong' reasons (think ego, social acceptance, and any other number of external and unfulfilling 'whys').


Now that I have that clarity and confidence, my desires are clear (and I believe I am WORTHY of them!) and my choices are SO much simpler! I can consciously create the life I crave. That doesn't mean that I always make the right choice or that I never have to pivot, but it DOES mean that I recognize the need to pivot much faster, and things flow much more smoothly than ever before. I wish this simplicity and clarity for you too!


Becoming a Desire Map Facilitator and sharing this work was a natural fit for me and I'd be thrilled to have you join this group of amazing women on a journey to discover your CORE DESIRED FEELINGS that will guide you towards creating the life you crave — though this it TOTALLY cliche, I am confident this will help you make 2019 your BEST YEAR YET! And things will just keep getting better from there! I hope you'll join us as part of our connected, clear, confident sisterhood!
