Book Giveaway and Review: The Fire Starter Sessions
NOTE: Updated May 5th — We have a winner for the giveaway… thanks to everyone who entered! Stay tuned for another book giveaway on May 15th.
Danielle LaPorte is a tantric master.
Actually, I don’t know that for a fact. But my experience of reading her new book, The Fire Starter Sessions: A Soulful + Practical Guide to Creating Success on Your Own Terms, felt like a tantric exercise.
Let me s’plain (as Ricky Ricardo might have said).
Tantra is a Tibetan Buddhist path that invites the practitioner to go deep into the heart of desire, so deep that you transcend the suffering-inducing attachment that usually goes along with desire. (In this context, this means desire of all kinds, not simply sexual desire.)
Instead, you come out the other end with pure gold, because you’ve touched into your true nature through the vehicle of your desire.
That’s what this book will do for you. Think of it as your guidebook to liberation.
Danielle writes that, “Happiness is creative tension.” The whole book invites you to dive into one creative tension after another, as a way to get at the root of your unique genius.
The Fire Starter Sessions is organized into three parts: Mojo, Moxie, and Results. Each section has sessions that focus on things like “Visioneering,” “The Metrics of Ease,” and “Money: More is More, Enough is Plenty.” There are powerful questions and worksheets throughout this book – you can’t read The Fire Starter Sessions without having a lot of fun and getting fully engaged.
In these questions and exercises, some of the things Danielle will challenge you to do include:
- Approve of your weaknesses
- Remember who you were, before the world told you who you should be
- Choose “easy” (but the quality kind of easy, not the cheap kind) and get out of your own way
If you already love Danielle writing on her blog, you probably don’t need any convincing to get this book. If you don’t know her work, you’re in for a mind- and heart-opening experience.
And one last thing – this is a magic book, or at least it was for me. The first night I started to read it, I made it through the first 37 pages then put it down by my bedside and fell asleep. I had vivid dreams throughout the night, weaving in some of the most beloved people in my life. When I awoke, one phrase from my dream was crystal clear: The world needs you to radiate.
Read this book and remember your own capacity to radiate.

Here’s how much I like this book—I’ve decided to keep my review copy and not give it away! But… I still want to give one lucky person a copy of The FSS to support you on your journey to freedom. So I’ll buy another copy and ship you that one.
There are three ways you can enter… if you do all three, you have three chances you have to win. Deadline to enter is this 12 noon, EST, this Saturday, May 5. Then I’ll choose the winner in a random drawing and get the book sent to her/him.
