Locations & Photos
The Hoffman Process is taught regularly at various locations in the United States: our own 45-acre site, White Sulphur Springs, in the Napa Valley of Northern California and in Chester, Connecticut. These scenic retreat sites are places where you can relax and trust that your needs are taken care of, allowing you to focus on your personal growth and learning. Also, each site is located near a major airport for your convenience.
White Sulphur Springs
White Sulphur Springs is a 45-acre retreat site located in the heart of California’s wine country. WSS, as it is known by the locals, is richly blessed by nature’s gifts: a cathedral redwood grove, a waterfall and the most pristine creek in the valley.
WSS is exclusively the retreat center and primary campus for the Hoffman Institute and its programs, including the Hoffman Process and the Q2 Graduate Intensive.
As a participant of the Hoffman Process, you have the opportunity to extend your stay at WSS to include the days before and after your Process.
If you arrive at White Sulphur Springs on the Thursday before your Process, you are invited to enjoy a delicious, complimentary buffet dinner on Thursday night, in the company of other arriving classmates. The Hoffman Institute will make every effort to have you stay in the same room from the duration of your stay with us, including the weekend following the Process, if you choose to do your important post-Process Integration at WSS.
We look forward to your stay and to making your pre and post Process visit to WSS a beautiful, relaxing, memorable part of your Hoffman experience.
