'When I arrived at the Process venue, my pattern of rebelling against authority made me very defensive. Once I trusted in the journey and gave it my all, it was magical and transformative – I cried a river. So much came up for healing and I gained a huge amount of self-awareness...

My attitude to life now is very different. The constant conflicting thoughts and internal dialogue that used to endlessly chatter and judge are hardly there. They’re not completely gone, but I notice them and I know how to quiet them. I’m more present and the sense of not belonging is so occasional that it’s not even worth mentioning.

My husband Neil and I have been on the French Retreat, which took our awareness to an even deeper level, and I did a six-month Hoffman course called Living Your Process that enabled me to make the vision I saw for myself on the Process a reality. I now see all the challenges I’ve faced as opportunities for growth, as are all those to come.

I’m happier than I’ve ever been and I’m proud of myself and Neil for the work we have put in for ourselves and our marriage. I’m so thankful for the Hoffman course – I’ve come back home to me – where I always belonged.'

We are LOVING this recent review of the Hoffman Process in Australia by journalist Luc Wiesman Titled 'I Paid $6,000 To Share Feelings With 20 Strangers In Byron Bay. It Was Totally Worth It', it's an honest, funny and upbeat read, and a great one to share with friends and family who might appreciate a 'no-nonsense' intro to Hoffman:

'It’s hard to grasp sharing problems with 20 complete strangers, but you soon realise everyone is there for the same reason. We’re all stuck and are looking for that push up the hill regardless of career, wealth or any of that status bullsh*t. Everyone is equal at Camp Hoffman.

If you only take one thing from this, it’s the sooner you realise everyone has sh*t, the quicker you can deal with your own and move on. Huzzah!'

We're grateful to Luc for sharing his experience so candidly. To read the article in full, click here

Hoffman coaching gives you the space to explore how you're feeling and to work through issues one-to-one using the Hoffman tools. Our facilitators will support you in identifying and developing your strengths, as well as tuning in to your own inner guidance.

Sessions cost £100 and last for an hour. You're welcome to work with any facilitator, even if they weren't on your Process. You can book regular sessions up to a fortnight in advance.

'I did the Process five years ago. The great intentions that I had when I left never materialised and I gradually sulked away from Hoffman, thinking that it just hadn't worked for me. It took a major life upheaval for the penny to finally drop - the tools will only work if you make the effort to use them...'

Our Processes at Florence House are still filling up quickly, and dates can be found here. Participant numbers are now back to 24, and spaces do still become available when courses are showing on Wait List, so it's always worth getting in touch if a Process is full. Availability is also updated regularly on our website.

For general information about Hoffman and what it entails, we hold weekly information evenings by Zoom that are free to attend. These take place at either 7.30pm on a Tuesday evening or 4.00pm on a Wednesday, which might be helpful for those in different time zones. You can find details of upcoming dates to share here.

And we're always very happy to speak to graduates about recommending our two-day Hoffman Essentials to their nearest and dearest. At just £195, the online weekend also makes a great gift. To find out more, email graduates@hoffmaninstitute.co.uk or give us a call on +44(0)1903 88 99 90.
