Hoffman graduate groups were created to be a safe and supportive space where Process grads can come together in community and continue their Hoffman tools work with others. Each group has a Hoffman-trained volunteer leader who oversees and presents the programs. Leaders adhere to, and are in alignment with, the principles of the Process and Hoffman grad group protocols and standards. Active grad groups are held fairly regularly. Currently, there are virtual as well as in-person group options available.

PLEASE NOTE: These are the updated Covid guidelines that we ask all grad groups to follow until further notice. Many graduate groups continue to meet virtually on Zoom. In order to receive updates from your local grad group leader, you will have to join a group below.

To join a group, choose the State and City below where you wish to participate, then click on the Join button. (If you have not logged in already, you will need to enter the email used in your Hoffman account, and your password.) Fill in your name and email address in the pop-up window, then click Sign Up. You will receive an email confirming you have successfully joined the group. Check your spam/junk folder if the confirmation email doesn’t show up in your inbox. If you don’t receive the confirmation email within 24 hours, contact techsupport@hoffmaninstitute.org.

We are pausing the creation of new grad groups until January of 2024. Please email gradsupport@hoffmaninstitute.org with questions regarding grad groups.
