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.
At the Treasure Maps retreat, you will learn how to:
- Sort out the parts in your Tangle so you can feel a fresh sense of freedom and space even before the issue starts to change.
- Gather your resources and cultivate your ability to be Self-in-Presence so you experience your own strong calm center even in the midst of turmoil and confusion.
- Step away from the pattern of self-shaming and feeling inadequate so that your unique strengths can grow and flourish.
- Create relationships with the various parts in your Tangle so they can finally heal in the way they have been longing for.
- Shift the level at which you have been holding your Tangle so that it doesn’t have to keep repeating… and something really new can happen.

Frequently Asked Questions
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.
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.
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.
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.
Feel free to reserve a shared room even if you are coming by yourself; we’ll be happy to assign you a roommate.
How much English do participants need to understand and speak in order to be able to follow the workshop?
The language of the workshop is slow English. Ann and Barbara are very experienced with international groups and always take care to speak slowly. We always pause if someone needs a translation of a word or concept. You will be able to do partnership sessions in your own language. If you want to speak in the group in your own language, someone will translate for you.
