Danielle LaPorte is an author, speaker, poet, painter, and former business strategist and Washington-DC think tank exec. While she was rising in the ranks in DC, she realized that version of success wasn’t resonating for her—she had the money and the prestige, but she was exhausted and unfulfilled. She decided to head back west and strike out on her own.
In addition to The Fire Starter Sessions, she is the author of the best-selling book The Desire Map—a spiritual manifesto and accompanying workbook on discovering and harnessing the singular clarity of our soul-level desires. Her newest book, White Hot Truth, examines the wild geographies of spiritual exploration and offers a tender, clear-eyed, and often hilarious view of our collective longing to connect with the Divine. White Hot Truth lands on bookshelves everywhere in May 2017.
Over five million visitors go monthly to her eponymous website for her straight-up advice on things like business, love, suffering, endurance, personal power, and grace. Her website was deemed “the best place online for kick-ass spirituality,” and was named one of the “Top 100 Websites for Women” by Forbes.
She brings her signature contrarian wit and wisdom to the stage, as well, leading workshops and partnering with organizations to inspire entrepreneurs, embolden change-makers, and challenge seekers all over the world.
She is an invited member of Oprah’s inaugural Super Soul 100—a group of change agents, who, in Oprah Winfrey’s words, “is uniquely connecting the world together with a spiritual energy that matters.”
Based in Vancouver, BC, you can find her just about everywhere on social media.
