Reunite with Your Classmates
Many Process classes have found value in reaffirming their Process growth through continued connection with classmates. This page will provide you with many options available from the Hoffman Institute.
If you are planning to contact the Institute to receive help with any of these options, we ask that you designate a class representative for communications with us.
Reunions with your classmates can take various forms. Some reunions are celebration-oriented and social, and others are tools-oriented with attention to personal growth.
Some classes have coordinated and hosted in-person reunions. Over the years various graduates tell us they gathered for half-day, full-day, and weekend reunions; other classes make annual treks to one of our graduate courses (Q² Intensive and Refreshers). Another type of reunion is a telephone reunion call, or a series of calls.
Below you will find what is currently available to you and your class, and hopefully something that will fit your vision!
Graduate-Led Telephone Reunion Calls
Many classes self-facilitate reunion/support calls with each other. There are a number of free bridge-line vendors you can find online. We know of at least two that graduates have used: www.freeconference.com or www.freeconferencecall.com. If you would like some assistance planning the content for your call, we have a document that other graduates have found helpful. To request a copy, please have a designated member of your class (one person only, please) email email@example.com and be sure to put “self-support call” in the subject line. We will respond to you within a couple of business days.
Self-Led, In-Person Reunions
We encourage you to create your own reunions. Some classes like to include graduates’ families, while others prefer to make it graduate-only and do some type of Hoffman work while together. What we believe is important is that everyone be in agreement about the intention for your time together; this way, people can better self-select to participate or not.
If your class decides to proceed with doing Hoffman work together, and someone in your class is prepared to lead your event, we invite that person to email us to request a copy of one of our self-led reunion guides. To request this guide, email firstname.lastname@example.org, and use “self-support reunion” as the subject line. Please let us know whether you are planning a 2-hour or a 3-hour program.
Teacher-Led Telephone Calls
This is a good option for classes that want steady telephone support alongside their classmates. If your class would like to begin with three, once-a-month calls – with an option to sign-up for more calls – have your class coordinator contact us for details. A $900 fee is required to schedule the first three sessions.
If your class would like to request a teacher to lead an in-person reunion, please have your class coordinator contact our enrollment department. Teachers are scheduled through the Hoffman office, and our enrollment department will provide you with current fees and expenses.
Our Hoffman reunion programs take place within a 7-hour day. Occasionally, we can accommodate reunions at our White Sulphur Springs site, but wherever you wish to hold your reunion, it’s a good idea to place your request for a teacher at least 3 months in advance of your intended date. Please contact the enrollment department for a current listing of fees, and to make reservations.
Reunions at the Q² Intensive, InnerWork for Leaders, and Graduate Refreshers
Some graduates attend these courses together on an annual basis. This is a wonderful way to continue to do your personal work, and deepen your bonds with classmates at the same time.
Take a look at our graduate calendar to select a date and location. It’s also a good idea to double-check with our office to make sure there are enough spaces for all your classmates who say they want to attend.
