As self help, personal development and spirituality become more part of our everyday experiences, many of us are exploring new methods to improve our lives and push past limiting beliefs. Justin Bieber, Sienna Miller and Katy Perry have all been toting the life changing benefits of the Hoffman Process. So what exactly is it?
The healing modality is a week-long transformative therapy that is used to clear away a lifetime of trauma. At a time when biohacking is growing in popularity, many of us now recognise that most of what holds us back starts in our own minds. The Hoffman Process was created decades ago as a way to help humans overcome the early programming that’s been with us from childhood that may be causing us a lifetime of fear and holding us back from our true potential.
The overall mission it is to use this method of facing one’s historical baggage, and using that confrontation to change your life for the better, once and for all.
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 were developed unconsciously and were conditioned in childhood.
The Hoffman uses various techniques, from Eastern mysticism to deep meditation, Gestalt, group therapy, visualisation, and allegedly condenses a lifetime of analysis to eight days. It has become, for many people, a life-changing experience that surgically removes their negative habits. Many who finish The Process, as it is known, become evangelical.
The Process says it will help you disconnect from negative patterns on an emotional, intellectual, physical, and spiritual level. People who attend the week long retreat speak of making significant positive changes in their lives. Rather than relying on patterns of belief and behaviour that were created in childhood, participants consciously choose to let go of what isn’t serving them.
It isn’t easy to find out much more than that, as participants sign a non disclosure agreement, swearing that they won’t reveal either details about the Process, or stories from the group work that takes place while on the retreat.
The Process has locations in California and Connecticut and the cost of the retreat is USD$5,000. You can learn more about the retreats here.
