Our first three-day Graduate Virtual Intensive sold out in a matter of hours! So we’re hugely grateful to Hoffman UK Founder Tim Laurence and supervising Hoffman facilitator Emma Ferguson for stepping up and agreeing to schedule a second session in June.

This extraordinary new workshop will (literally) meet you where you are today, allowing you to identify the challenges that continue to hold you back from what you want in life, and leading you forward in transforming them. We are limiting this workshop to 14 participants, to allow for the creation of a sacred space where we can work through old and new material in an intimate, supported environment.

Like the Process itself, our Graduate Virtual Intensive is a mixture of taught group sessions, expressive work, times of reflection and independent learning and sharing. Our sessions are spread over three days, with regular breaks away, and some short evening assignments (the ‘intensive’ doesn’t refer to screen time!)

When you register we will send you a short pre-course questionnaire as well as a list of items that you will be asked to prepare before the workshop starts.  You will also receive a 20 minute phone check-in with either Tim or Emma so they can feel into the main issues you’ll be working with and offer you support over the three days.

‘I loved reading the programme for the new Graduate Virtual Intensive. Some great new techniques in there, and it’s all beautifully practical, simple and clear. I can’t wait to get started on our first session…’ Hoffman supervising facilitator Emma Ferguson

The practicalities

What you’ll need
A laptop or computer with a stable internet connection, charger and headphones and a private, quiet space to work. We ask that confidentiality be a commitment agreed to by all participants, so it is important if you are at home that you make arrangements with the members of your household to honour your privacy, and not interrupt your workshop time. We will send you a full list of requirements, supplies and guidelines in advance, so you have time to prepare your environment.

Each day of the GVI will run from 9.00am until around 5.00pm, with regular breaks and time for a long lunch away from a screen. On Friday and Saturday, there will also be evening assignments to complete, each taking around an hour. Please plan to allow yourself the time and space to carry on with these assignments once we break for the day.

“The GVI was a surprisingly powerful and connected journey given that it is an online course. It was expertly and caringly conducted by Tim and Emma, and I felt very safe to relax into the experience with my fellow participants. It really fortified my connection to the Hoffman tools and allowed me to shed some grief and anguish that I’ve been dragging around. I’m so grateful to the facilitators, my fellow GVI participants, and the Hoffman community for their work and willingness to be vulnerable, open, and loving.” GVI participant, Hoffman UK

“Incredible value for money. I think I would like to do it once a year or so – to remind me of the tools and benefits of Hoffman. So much can be gained from doing this with others and also so easy to do it from home.” GVI participant, Hoffman UK

“There was real magic in bringing Hoffman into my home and my spaces (like my local park). There was real significance in not thinking of Hoffman as something you do somewhere else”. GVI participant, Hoffman UK

A note on confidentiality:

Confidentiality is important in this workshop so that all participants feel safe to be fully self-expressed and (if desired), to share their experiences. By registering for this workshop, you agree to not discuss any other participant’s experience or anything that another person shares in a way in which that participant can in any way be identified. You also agree to not audio or video tape any portion of the session and, wherever possible, to keep your own camera switched on in order that we are all visible and present to each other. This helps to enhance trust and community.
