PATHWORK is a self-development series designed for both beginners and experienced life-time learners, seriously interested in incorporating into their lives proven spiritual practices, gleaned from the perennial wisdom of the world’s major religions. 


The circle meets weekly, on Sundays, from 6:30 - 9:30 pm and you are invited to attend one or more evenings, without commitment to the entire series.

Programs express a carefully designed curriculum covering:

  •  Self-understanding and development.

  •  Understanding relationships and how to work with them.

  •  Learning to join; learning to serve—making social contribution

These practices are combined with current understandings of human development, from cognitive behaviorism and transpersonal psychology. The Goodenough Community has been testing and refining these practices over time, for deepening our awareness of what it can mean to be “fully human”, in a superficial world of chaos, alienation and random violence.

Share in a Safe and Supportive Environment


The series is designed by Dr. John L. and Colette M. Hoff, founders of the Goodenough Community. Both Colette and John have  extensive experience in helping others find their own “voice” in the exciting adventure of self-development.

Dates and Times


The circle meets weekly on Sunday evenings unless it is a holiday or holiday weekend.  On those weekends please call or e-mail Barbara Brucker for the meeting time.

Questions? For future information, please contact Barbara Brucker, Chair-person of Convocation, who can be reached at, or at (206) 763-2258 (voice mail.)

"It is our belief that a spiritual quest, while fashioned by each individual seeker following her own path, is well-served by a circle of friends on similar quests, sharing the highs and lows of this journey in a mutually supporting experience, led by seasoned, compassionate guides."
