One day back in January I went to the post office and awaiting me was one of the most exciting packages I’ve ever received. You see, ever since the day I first read about her alter ego Candace Candalabra on White Hot Truth I was obsessed with Danielle LaPorte. And my major online crush has turned into a very dear, nourishing friendship. The package was from Ms. LaPorte and I was so over the moon excited that I immediately started to cry. And then I squealed with sheer glee. (See photo for evidence of glee.)
I devoured the book. Reading it every morning became my spiritual practice.
Then I read it by the fireplace because I figured it would help to ignite fires within my soul too. It did.
Then I read it in Hooters because, really, that place could use a little extra soul to go with all the boobs. Plus, the color on the cover kind of matches the shorts that the Hooters girls have to wear. (Note the shorts and rack on the girl to the right of the book.)
This book is the antidote to self doubt. The Fire Starter Sessions had my cells tingling from the first page. Every word, idea, and invocation has been curated to evoke our deepest hunger and deepest knowing. Part wake up call, part affirmation, part love letter, The Fire Starter Sessions will get you hot and bothered. This book is the ignition for the creative work still unborn on this planet that the world is so desperate for. Get the book and be reminded of your genius.
At Danielle’s launch party in NYC on Wednesday night she said:
“Your success is directly proportional to the quality of the relationships in your life.” ~Danielle LaPorte
There is a sea change happening here, people. Danielle is part of a new model that includes commitment to love, generosity, and spiritual actualization not in addition to business success, but as necessary ingredients for it. I was deeply aware and viscerally delighted by the fact that I was surrounded on Wednesday night by people committed to this same reality.
The night was glowy, love-filled, and beyond spectacular – thanks to the tone set by the guest of honor.
Here are some more photos from the evening for your viewing pleasure and to show you how you can expect to feel when you receive your copy!
Also included at the bottom of this post is my Glimpse TV episode with Danielle from back in October. It is one of my most favorite and one of the most commented on and re-shared episodes in Glimpse TV history. If you have yet to see it, scroll to the bottom and enjoy!
My sister Ann and I totally psyched about getting our copies of The Fire Starter Sessions.
