The Process

What is the hoffman process?

Founded in 1967 by Bob Hoffman, the Hoffman Process is a week-long residential and personal growth retreat that helps participants identify negative behaviors, moods, and ways of thinking that developed unconsciously and were conditioned in childhood.

The Process will help you become conscious of and disconnected from negative patterns of thought and behaviors on an emotional, intellectual, physical, and spiritual level in order to make significant positive changes in your life. You will learn to remove habitual ways of thinking and behaving, align with your authentic self, and respond to situations in your life from a place of conscious choice.

We offer the Process at our beautiful retreat sites located in California  & Connecticut.

Discover the life-changing results our students have experienced by taking the Hoffman Process: measurable therapeutic outcomes that have been documented by scientific studies, including reductions in anxiety and depression, and increases in overall health and well being.

Our highly trained teachers will work with you to:

  • Explore and resolve thought and behavior patterns that impact your relationships
  • Learn how to let go of what isn’t working and move naturally into being the primary creative force in all aspects of your life
  • Uncover your most powerful, loving, creative, and compassionate self
  • Improve your connection to yourself, your family, and your larger community

To understand your intellect, your emotional capacity, your physical self, a whole person is connected with their Spiritual Center, which they access through the work of the Process. From that place – the Spiritual Center – there’s not much room for depression.
