Reconnecting To Joy
Hoffman graduate Michael Kehlet shares his Process story

A beautiful home, a loving, supportive wife, and a career on the up with the LEGO Group - from the outside, Michael Kehlet's life seemed to be perfect. But something was holding him back from happiness:

'For months and months I’d been trying to convince myself how incredibly fortunate I was. Trying to persuade myself that, while so many others are hit by cancer, car accidents or the death of those they love, I was acting like a complete idiot, not appreciating my good fortune. But even the darkest hours were not enough to make me change…until the day I took an honest look at myself and my family and realised how much my negative thoughts and patterns were impacting my two sons...'

New recipe book from Hoffman grad Jasmine Hemsley

When bestselling author, cook and TV Presenter Jasmine Hemsley travelled through India and Sri Lanka, it ignited a passion for Ayurvedic cuisine that inspired her to write a recipe book.

'On the Process I watched everyone around me transform in a matter of days - everyone looked younger, the weight of the world off their shoulders. I left with a sense of lightness too, a deeper sense of knowing and understanding of myself and my roots, as well as the challenge set to me by the tutors to go forth and be daring. So here it is, my first solo cookbook, something very daring indeed!'

Hoffman top tip for December
Make friends with stress

If stress is a necessary part of your life, make friends with it. Listen to the reassurance of the Intellect rather than the panic of your Emotional Child.

Or try this tip - go and buy a houseplant. Houseplants aren't just beautiful air purifiers; researchers have found that simply being around plants can induce your relaxation response.  

Extra Hoffman tip: We love covering our plants in fairy lights at this time of year. Helps remind us of the beauty of the light...
