◇ Important Follow-Up Information for After the Weekend
Please take a few minutes to look over all the information, and bookmark this page for your reference.
COMPLETE YOUR QUESTIONNAIRE
If you have not yet done so, please complete the questionnaire now. These questionnaires are a vital part of the process and help us to understand your unique history and needs. They prepare you for the Immersion Weekend and ensure you can get the most out of your weekend.
Get prepared for the weekend
◇ You will be engaging in deep inner work throughout the weekend. Therefore, we suggest you nourish yourself throughout the weekend with healthy foods and to abstain from drugs and alcohol.
◇ We request that you turn your cell phone on airplane mode during our sessions so that you will not be distracted. We suggest you let the people in your life know that you will not be available to text or call during these times.
CREATE A SPACE FOR YOURSELF
Refraining from Distractions:
Being on retreat ideally means spending at least some of the day in silence, minimizing communication with others and refraining from news and entertainment. Try to structure your retreat days with simplicity—put an away message on your email, save your snail mail for later, prepare the simplest meals you can…some in advance if you’re able to.
Requesting support from people you live with:
If you are living with someone, tell them about the schedule and lovingly request them to give you space, especially during the session hours, but even, if possible, during the breaks.
Here are some phrases to make that request: “Would you be willing to………. …? Then “This is what it would mean to me:…………..” Then “Thank you so much. You are such a support to me, I notice I feel so much gratitude.”
We are aware that this will be especially challenging for parents, and we understand you can only do your best.
Set Your Intention:
In the days before the Immersion Weekend, please make sure to fill out your questionnaire – you’ll receive it on the Monday prior to your workshop.
As you fill out the questionnaire, take some time to consider what brought you to this Immersion Weekend. What do you hope to let go of? What do you hope to receive? What would be a breakthrough for you?
A Sacred Space:
We highly recommend you participate in this retreat in a quiet, dedicated place in your home, with your door closed if you live with someone. Ideally, you’d do it before a homemade altar or shrine where you can light candles, place flowers and/ or inspiring images or items that remind you of the Sacred.
Take some time before the workshop to create a little sacred altar or corner, filled with things that remind you that you are supported and of the Sacred.

What to Expect After the Weekend
After the weekend, you have two great calls to support you in your integration after the workshop. Integrating your workshop experience into your everyday life is a big part of the transformative process.
1. REUNION MEETING: To support your integration process, we invite you to participate on our Men’s Immersion Weekend Reunion Meeting! The meeting is a chance to connect and check-in about how you are integrating what you learned and experienced into your everyday life.
Tuesday, November 16 from 6:00pm-7:15pm PST
Access will be emailed to you after the workshop. Please arrange your schedule so you can be with us.
2. FOLLOW-UP COACHING CALL: As a part of the Immersion weekend, you’ll also receive a 25-minute one-on-one coaching call to anchor in the changes you’ve made from the weekend. This call will be held with a COR facilitator. On the call, you’ll explore what your next steps look like in your own healing as a man.
A COR Facilitator will reach out to you individually to set up this call after the Immersion Weekend.
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:
