◇ The drive from both Los Angeles and San Francisco takes about 3.5 – 4 hrs. If you are flying into LA or SF, your flight will need to arrive by 1:00pm in order to arrive at the site on time.

◇ It is very important that you arrive on time, so please do all you can do to be there at 5:00pm on Thursday night. Please do not arrive before 5:00pm, as we will not be able to receive you.

◇ If you have not arrived at the workshop by 7:00pm, you will forfeit your participation in the entire workshop, and not receive a refund or transfer.

◇ You must stay on site for the entire workshop- until departure- or your workshop will not be considered complete, which will affect your ability to staff or participate in future workshops.

◇ If you are coming from south/southeast of Arroyo Grande,      DO NOT take the 166 route/Cat Cyn Road exit, even if GPS tells you to as there are gated roads you will not be able to access.  Use the 101, drive through the village of Arroyo Grande and follow the signs to Huasna Valley.

◇ Drive down Cat Canyon until you reach the end of the cul-de-sac. It is an unpaved road so please drive slowly (there are deer and rabbits that often run in the car’s path).

Integrating your workshop experience into your everyday life is a big part of the transformative process.

To support your process, we invite you to participate in our COR Woman Integration Program. This program is included in the price of your workshop, and consists of weekly 75 minute video/conference calls for 4 weeks following your workshop.

Please arrange your schedule so you can be on the calls; if you cannot make it, we will email you a recording.

 Dates: Tuesdays – 10/19, 10/26, 11/2, and 11/9

Please note: 10/19 is the COR Community Connection event. 

The COR Community Connection event is an opportunity for you to invite your loved ones, your friends, family members and/or coworkers to join you and your workshop facilitator(s) to celebrate your graduation from COR Woman, and experience what you received during your time with us. This will give your loved ones a chance to get a glimpse into your world on the other side of your Rite of Passage. Please invite your loved ones to register here.


Many of the answers can be found on this page, but in case you can’t find what you’re looking for, contact our Client Care Specialist with any questions or concerns:



What are the accommodations like at the workshop?

We handpick our venue sites for comfort, accessibility, and a concentration on the natural beauty around us. Each site is different, but all feature stunning locations with comfortable accommodations for each participant. Most rooms are shared with one or two other participants. We put a lot of thought and effort into making sure each participant is comfortable and well-resourced, asking for sleeping preferences before the workshop.  An on-site event manager is there to see to any concerns that come up.

What is the food like at the workshop?

We have an on-site chef present to cook healthy meals for all participants, who attempts to cook with as much organic, natural food as possible.  We ask for any food allergies or restrictions in the questionnaire, and we can accommodate most needs, including dairy-free, gluten-free and vegetarian. Please let us know if you have any dietary restrictions or concerns, and we will do all that we can to accommodate those needs.  In the rare case that we are not able to, we’ll make sure to communicate that beforehand and provide space for you in the refrigerators on site.

can i do this workshop with a friend or relative?

Yes absolutely! Many people choose to complete their workshop with a close friend or family member present, and it’s a very bonding experience. We encourage you to invite anyone who you are close to, and who might also benefit from the weekend.

What if i can’t get there in time, or have to leave early?

Each process of the weekend is incredibly important. It’s key that you be on site before the workshop starts at 7pm, and that you are able to stay until the very end.

If you have not arrived at the workshop by 7:00pm, you will forfeit your participation in the entire workshop, and not receive a refund or transfer.

Please plan accordingly when booking your travel. We cannot accommodate late arrivals or early departures. 

What is the policy if i need to transfer or cancel?

Please refer to our cancellation policy for more information on this, and contact our Client Care Specialist if you need to discuss a transfer.
