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.

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.
We offer two ways to pay during our early registration period.
You can pay in full (save 10%). You can also choose to pay your Workshop Fees in six installments beginning with a $250 deposit, followed by five monthly payments of $193. Charges occur every month based on your original purchase date. The installment option is only available for the workshop fees.
One month before the workshop, you’ll receive an email to pay for your room and board.
Your registration is not complete until you have finished this step.

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.
We want our retreats to be available to people who may have difficulty paying them all at once, so we offer an interest free installment option (minimal processing fees apply).

Please note: Installment options do not include (and are not available for) Room and Board fees and are only available during our early registration period.
