The Hoffman Process is a comprehensive 3-month personal development program, the foundation of which is a 7 day intensive residential retreat. We recommend that you spend the two days following the 7 day program as time for personal reflection and integration. On that weekend the whole group reconvenes for a 2 hours tutorial about how to apply the tools of the Process in daily life. Our experience is that participants notice positive results immediately. Of course, there is also a period of adjustment in the days and weeks following the Process while you integrate insights and knowledge into your daily life. For the first 3 weeks after the Process, the facilitators track the integration process weekly via phone calls.

All our Hoffman teachers have completed very rigorous training in the methodology of the Hoffman Process. They are highly trained therapists and mature professionals grounded in various disciplines. Our teachers provide instruction and personalized individual guidance to ensure that each student progresses successfully through the Process and learns tools for ongoing development.

Typical Process size ranges from 20 to 23 participants with one certified Hoffman Process teacher for every six to eight students.
