Treasure Maps: An Untangling™ Retreat

 August 11 – 17, 2020

British Columbia, Canada

Your Teachers

Ann and Barbara

With Treasure Maps, we can show you how to enable natural, spontaneous transformation that releases the aliveness trapped within.

Our intention is to give you the “Powers”: the skills, the knowledge and the abilities, that will enable you to “shift levels” whenever you need to for the rest of your life.

We believe that transformation occurs most readily in an atmosphere of respect, acceptance, openness, warmth, playfulness, and support. Our mission is to enable you to live from your vibrant, strong, authentic self so you can bring your gifts and your passion into the world.

Want a truly immersive experience?

We have an Advanced Treasure Maps retreat scheduled to follow this retreat at the same location.

If you are taking both the Regular and the Advanced Retreats, you will be able to stay at Edenvale for the two days between. Depending on the number of students staying, meals may also be provided. Payment for room and board for the days between the retreats will be collected 3 weeks prior to the retreat.


This workshop requires previous Focusing experience. You need to have taken Your Path to Lasting Change Part One, or Levels 1 and 2, or the equivalent. Please email us if you are not sure whether your Focusing experience qualifies you.

Treasure Maps payments are non-refundable except in the event of unavoidable emergency.

When something doesn’t go as you hoped…

We are always open to discussing experiences with our courses that didn’t work for you or didn’t go the way you expected. Depending on the circumstances, you may want to email your course instructor, the staff member in charge of your course, or Ann Weiser Cornell. Email addresses for all these people will be supplied on registration. We will work with you to find a way to meet your needs.

Frequently Asked Questions

Frequently Asked Questions

When does the retreat actually start and end?

The workshop starts on the evening of the first day, after dinner, and ends just before lunch on the last day. Dinner on the first day and lunch on the last day are included.

What is the schedule?

We meet as a group for three hours each morning and three hours each afternoon. Paired practice is included in those three hours. In the evenings, participants are free to take quiet time or join others for shared activities like singing, dancing, storytelling, improv games. The days normally run from 9am – 6pm, beginning with breakfast. Dinner is at 6:30pm.

Is there Focusing time every day?

Yes, you will be Focusing in partnership each day, for longer times each day, as you gain the resources you’ll need to be with the deep places.

How much Focusing experience do I really need as a prerequisite?

Although more is better, at a minimum you need to be able to be a Focusing partner, able to direct your own Focusing process and accompany someone else. We have found that people need at least two Levels of Focusing training (or the equivalent) to feel sufficiently relaxed and confident with Focusing so that they can concentrate on the subtleties of the Treasure Maps work.

I'd like to reserve a shared room but I don't know anyone else to bring with me.

Feel free to reserve a shared room even if you are coming by yourself; we’ll be happy to assign you a roommate.
