» Welcome to The Option Institute
Who We Are
The Option Institute International Learning and Training Center is a not-for-profit educational organization founded in 1983 by best- selling authors Barry Neil Kaufman and Samahria Lyte Kaufman. Thousands of individuals and professionals have taken our programs and used The Option Process® to become energized, empowered and utterly transformed. The Kaufmans’ books(Happiness Is A Choice, Son-Rise:The Miracle Continues, No Regrets, et al.), works and programs have been endorsed by such well-respected figures as President Jimmy Carter, Coretta Scott King, Deepak Chopra, John Bradshaw, Bill Cosby, Dr. Wayne Dyer, Harold S. Kushner and Lou Holtz.
The Option Institute Difference
The Option Institute has 80 teachers and associates on staff. These individuals are dedicated employees, not guest lecturers or temporary help. Thanks to their experience and continuity of instruction, our clients enjoy an unparalleled experience in inner-strength training. More than a temporary “quick-fix” to a specific professional or personal challenge, The Option Institute offers a lasting, transformative experience that helps individuals to master current and future challenges.
Our programs are engaging, interactive and dynamic. We believe in experiential training versus conventional lectures and seminars. Participants are not just observers, but rather active contributors to the overall process. Our spectacular 100-acre campus — nestled in the Berkshires and within a three-hour drive of Boston and New York City — provides a perfect setting for de-stressing, learning and growing (personally and professionally).
