Immersion Course • 2014 • Vancouver

Event Details


Monday – Friday: 9:00 am – 5:00 pm
There will be a 15 minute break in the AM and PM and a one hour lunch
(on your own).
No reading prerequisite.

The UBC campus has a lot to offer and because of that it will be easiest if you can refer to some of the links and documents too.

Here is something that Diana has sent out in the past;

“Being a devout believer in emergence, there isn’t a tight schedule.Since the combination of didactic, clinical tape presentations with moment-to-moment tracking and sprinkling of experiential exercises will depend on how things unfold. What is set, is that: on the third day (Wednesday afternoon), we will have a presentation from faculty member Dale Trimble; on Thursday morning, the morning of the fourth day, we will have presentations from Senior faculty members David Mars and Karen Pando-Mars, and on Thursday afternoon we will have the extensive (richly assisted) experiential exercises/practice, which will be followed by the cocktail party on Friday evening. I don’t think anyone wants to miss the closing on Friday afternoon. I so look forward to sharing in this work.”

Hotel Accommodations

We do still have availability. Please call the reservations office at 604-822-1000 extension 3, or toll-free at 1-888-822-1030. Please ensure they say they are with the AEDP Institute Conference.


Here is the parking link:

The North Parkade is recommended.

Guests who have booked accommodations on campus (Walter Gage Residence or West Coast Suites) will be able to get parking, which is provided on a first come first serve basis, at the Walter Gage Residence for $9/day + tax.

If you are staying off campus, use the North Parkade $14/day max rate ($1.75 every 30 minutes…so for a full day the flat $14/day kicks in)


For those staying at either the Walter Gage Residence or West Coast Suites breakfast is provided each morning in the Student Union Building (Pacific Spirit Cafeteria) and it is included in your stay.

If you bring your own meals and require a microwave there is one in the basement of the Student Union Building. Those staying off campus may venture here for breakfast (or other meals) for a fee.

Please note that we will provide coffee service each day along with an assortment of food items each morning and at the morning and afternoon breaks (in the Isabel MacInnes room)…a quick and simple something…and we’ll do our best to accommodate everyone’s needs. Everyone is on their own for lunch.


Meeting Space

Walter Gage Residence – Isabel MacInnes Room

Attached are two maps, one with coordinates, the other I have labeled with arrows on the various spaces each day. I would print both and reference both; the campus is quite large.

The set-up is classroom style and there are plenty of tables/chairs with access to power should you need it. As with all meeting rooms, the chairs are moderately comfortable and the room temperature fluctuates. Please plan accordingly. There is plenty of room to stand, stretch, and walk around.

Please refrain from wearing strongly scented products.

Internet Access Code

There is complimentary wireless internet access in the West Coast Suites. In all other guest rooms at the Walter Gage Residence there is complimentary wired internet access, guests will have to bring their own Ethernet cables or they can purchase them at the front desk (limited number available).

In the lobby area and throughout most of campus there is complimentary wireless internet access as well, however it does not work in the guest rooms.

The network is the UBC Visitor Network, guests will need to read the terms & conditions then enter their email address to get access.

Cocktail Party

The cocktail party is at the Sage Bistro in their lounge (a short walk from

Enjoy the event…nothing more is needed. After the event, we will be sending you a link via email. Follow this link to complete the online evaluation and at the end you can print your certificate. Sometimes this link goes to spam…so please check your spam folders.

Stashing Your Stuff

As the week winds down many of you may be checking out of your hotel room to catch a flight right after the event, while we can’t be responsible for your belongings, you may stash your items under the skirted registration tables. Please check with volunteers and they will assist.
