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.

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.

I'm concerned about money…

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). Workshop Fees can be paid in installments to spread them out over a period of 6 consecutive months. Installment details are listed for each workshop and can be selected during your registration process. 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.

Continuing Education Credit & Course Completion Certificate

Course meets the qualifications for 35 hours of continuing education credit for LMFTs, LCSWs, LPCCs, and/or LEPs as required by the California Board of Behavioral Sciences. PCE#62524

Eligibility for CE units requires 100% live attendance. If you miss any hours of instruction, you are ineligible for CE units.

There is a $25 administrative fee for CE units. Course completion certificates are awarded at the end of the course upon completion of all requirements and the course evaluation. (If you don’t want CE units but would like a completion certificate, the $25 fee does still apply.)

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.
