Relationship Retreat

Our Human relationships are sometimes the hardest thing to manage in life. The Hoffman Process empowers individuals as well as couples to be able to deepen intimacy without sacrificing one’s own personal values, dreams and/or personal freedom.

Our family of origin provides us with the blue print of how we run our relationships. The Hoffman Process takes you on a deep exploration of the culture of your original family.

Are you struggling in your relationship?

  • Do you feel that the love has moved out of your relationship?
  • Do you feel that you have become a mere functionary in your partnership?
  • Do you feel trapped?
  • Do you find it hard to be yourself around your partner?
  • Are you avoiding expressing your true feelings to your partner?

The Hoffman Process is a 6 ½ day personal development retreat that helps you take responsibility for your own emotional reactions and helps you transform these into more emotionally adult responses.

Our family of origin provides us with the blue print of how we run our relationships. Most couples eventually notice, during conflicts or in certain stressful moments in their relationship, the disconcerting thought: “Oh my God! I have married my Mother / Father?”

There is a lot of truth in this realization because when we are triggered emotionally by our partner and don’t have the tools to deal with it, we experience ourselves as an ‘effect’ rather than a ‘cause’, just as we would have as a child.

Whenever we have the experience of not being equal to our partner or anyone else, we react automatically and are activated in our emotional child. We feel like a child, while the other person seems to hold the power and authority. At that moment we are projecting a parental image onto our partner or associate. We trap them and ourselves into an unresolvable power struggle – the parent / child dead-lock:

My partner says: “You are working late again!’ I feel criticised, so I withdraw; my partner feels abandoned and unheard, so he /she castigates me: “You are never available to me anymore and you haven’t changed your working hours even though I have spoken with you about it several times before”. One reaction usually incites further reaction and so the communication usually spirals down from there.

Unless we learn to become conscious of our reactions and find understanding for the source of our reactivity in our early childhood conditioning then we cannot hope to heal our inner emotional child. This way we can also find empathy and understanding for our partner’s reactivity and arrest these painful emotional ‘deadlocks’ that so often thwart the flow of love in a relationship.

The Hoffman Process provides deep healing of childhood wounds. Trained relationship counselors will help you and your partner with guidance to resolve power-struggles and to become emotionally available again, so that you can truly meet each other in your spiritual essence. When both partners meet through their Spiritual Essence they experience equality, love, compassion and joy.

The Hoffman Process is suitable for some couples to participate in together. Our enrollment counselors can ascertain whether it is recommended to do the program simultaneously or separately.

Benefits of The Hoffman Process

The Hoffman Quadrinity Process was created in 1967 by Bob Hoffman, an American tailor. The name of the healing method is derived from a reintegration of the four aspects you need to work on to bring more positivity into your life: body, intellect, emotion, and spirit.

  • The Hoffman Process is supportive and holistic, leading to permanent, positive change.
  • You are allowed to name your problems honestly.
  • You experience your present world as it was or should/could have been when you were a child: carefree, curious, and exuberant.

Raz Ingrasci, a teacher who worked with the now-deceased founder of the Hoffman Process, Bob Hoffman, describes the Hoffman process as a guide for people who really want to change in a deeply personal way, profoundly. Well, who doesn’t?

Problems Which Our Couples’ Therapy Retreats in Australia Address

Those seeking help for psychological problems such as addiction and dependency, abuse experiences, eating disorders, depression and psychosomatic complaints may benefit from the Hoffman Process. However, anyone who is not burdened by such problems, but is looking for direction as a manager, for example, can learn a lot from the Quadrinity Process. Our couple’s therapy retreats in Australia, are a safe environment for couples to deepen their relationship while providing the opportunity to resolve core patterns plaquing them from childhood, which tend to play out repeatedly throughout their lives and the lives of their children.

  • What we do in our youth or what happens to us in this most receptive period of our life largely determines who we are or what we are becoming. This has been the case for countless generations.
  • Did you feel in your childhood that you were confronted with a lack of unconditional love? You are not alone. Many children suffer from “negative love”, which manifests itself, for example, in neglect, lack of compassion and avoidance of feelings.
  • If you feel that you inherited this behaviour from your parents, ask yourself whether they too were victims of the same phenomenon in their youth.

You will have the opportunity to follow this therapy wholly detached from your daily worries. In our relationship retreat at Byron Bay, you will be safe in the company of others who are looking for answers to their questions and solutions to their problems. For a week, couples will be able to fully concentrate on transforming their feelings into positive and future-oriented emotions. Nothing will distract you in your relationship retreat. You will have the opportunity to work on yourself completely undisturbed.
