“I have always been deeply fascinated with the "words" of Jesus and always hoped that someone would come along that could give meaningful and accurate translations of the writings and reveal the deeper teachings. Dale’s translations and deep spiritual insight shows how the message of Jesus resonates with the sublime message of many of the great prophets, Buddha, Mohamed, Great Eastern Saints, Tolle etc. Dale’s delivery is very grounded and sober and I believe his work is vital in the evolution of the awakening awareness of Human consciousness.”

Dale Allen Hoffman offers a living, breathing vision of the direct, practical application of many of Yeshua’s (Jesus) most misunderstood teachings from the ancient Aramaic language in which He spoke them. Dale shares stunning insights from ancient sources including Aramaic, Greek, Hebrew and Coptic manuscripts about the “miraculous” capacity of the human mind, our inherent Divinity and the awakening consciousness of humanity. Dale's work brings forth a direct experience of the profound, transformational qualities of consciously intoned ancient and indigenous sounds, tones and languages on activating states of deep Presence and sound healing.
Dale spent much of his youth simultaneously immersed in both the Methodist and Episcopalian churches, including intensive studies of the “authorized” King James Bible. His youth included intensive studies of the “authorized” King James Bible with his grandmother Irene, a life-long pillar in the local Methodist church. A persistent nagging feeling that something was “missing” from the King James Bible drove Dale deeper into his search for spiritual truth even before he ever realized that he was searching. One late afternoon at the age of 9, while walking deep in the woods near his southern New Jersey home, Dale had what he calls a “Unitive” experience in which he felt “a profound waterfall of indescribable Light and an experience of being one with, and within, all of Creation. He would not fully comprehend this experience until several years into his adult life and had no idea at the time how profoundly it would impact his consciousness and his life.
Over the next 10 years, Dale’s powerful experience began to descend into his memory, but he was never the same again. He experienced an intensification of his emotional states, at times shifting from violent rage to desperate vulnerability to transcendent bliss in a matter of seconds. Dale also found himself taking every possible opportunity to roam alone into nature, often sitting in one position, breathing rhythmically for hours with eyes closed before opening them and basking in the awareness of his profound spiritual immersion within what he calls the “Absolute Only Being”.
In 1995, just months before his 23rd birthday, Dale met dr. michael ryce, who shared the teachings of Jesus in His native ancient Aramaic language in which they were originally spoken nearly 2,000 years ago. dr. ryce, author of the book “Why Is This Happening To Me…AGAIN?!”, was an inspiration for many of the insights from James Redfield’s best-selling Celestine Prophecy book series. The next decade found Dale studying the works of and with many of the world’s preeminent Biblical and Aramaic language scholars, spiritual teachers, and religious figures.
In 2008, Dale began collaborating with Dr. Albert J. LaChance, a long-time personal student of Father Thomas Berry, and author of The Way of Christ, The Modern Christian Mystic: Finding the Unitive Presence of God and The Architecture of the Soul. Together, Dale and Dr. LaChance have spoken to enthusiastic crowds across the United States and share their passion for the direct, personal experience of the transformative Presence of Christ within ourselves.
