Behind the scenes: Sounds True + the making of new Desire…

It takes a village. And Throat Coat Tea. And velcro rollers. And producers who listen with their heart and soul.

And so began my journey with Sounds True Publishing to bring The Desire Map book to bookstores and to create a new series of audio programs (January 2014!) Actually, the trip began about six months before I connected with Chief Creative Officer, Nancy Smith. I kept seeing a warehouse in my dreams — a big, happy warehouse with good lighting, full of thousands of books. Jump cut to my first visit to Sounds True, in Boulder, for a week of studio recording. I walked into their big, happy warehouse with good lighting, full of thousands of books, and got a bit choked up. Dream. Come. True.

And then they handed me an empty box and said, “Go shopping.” Clarissa Pinkola Estes, Ken Wilber, Thich Nhat Hanh, Geneen Roth, AH Almaas, Eckhart Tolle, Adyashanti… it’s a an honour to be sharing future shelf space with these teachers.

We recorded 8+ hours of desire audio, and on the final day decided to shoot the video book trailer before I got on the plane (launching December 3 – ink it in!) It was a last minute act of creative audacity. I’m usually the pushy creative boss on the team, “Come on it’s only midnight, we can shoot another hour of footage. Power up.” But this time, it was the team pushing me. “You can do it off the cuff. Let’s just roll.” And then I really knew I was home. Dream. Come. True.
