Hugo Chittenden - The Volunteer  

Hugo Chittenden
Hugo Chittenden is a documentary filmmaker, inspirational speaker, teacher and Hoffman Grad.  

Following a near-fatal illness at the age of 31, Hugo decided to transform his life by dedicating himself to helping raise awareness, funding and support for charities and projects overseas. Hugo's new book, The Volunteer provides a unique insight into the benefits of volunteering on projects overseas bycharting the adventures of 10 influential and intrepid volunteers.

The Volunteer Book Cover 
'I wrote this book as a guide to inspire people to volunteer by answering the big questions on volunteering while also featuring the remarkable real-life experiences of those who have chosen to widen their circle of compassion and make a difference to the lives of people around the world.'

'The Hoffman process has given me a deeper understanding of my life, re-invigorated by beliefs that there are no limits and taught me to be spiritual and aware of my patterns to have the balance I need to succeed in all areas of my life.'

Tim Laurence worked with Hugo on the Process and says, "Hugo's book is so inspiring, as well as beautifully laid-out, that it should really come with a clear warning 'Reading this will make you seriously re-evaluate how and with whom you spend your time'".

You can find out more about Hugo and how you too can help heal the world by visiting his website below. You can also order 'The Volunteer' via Amazon.

Clare Gilsenan
Society often treats death as the final taboo, yet at some point all of us have to deal with the loss of someone we love. 

On the Hoffman Process one of the most common issues we help with is unmourned loss. In a society which admires a stiff upper lip, so few of us are allowed to fully express heartbreak when it happens.

In this article, Clare Gilsenan, head of the Hoffman UK Enrolment team, suggests ways that you can help either yourself or someone else suffering from grief or loss.
For many years, Clare has worked as a Bereavement Therapist for both adults and children. She also draws on her training in Solution Focused Hypnotherapy, EFT, NLP and EMDR.

'Freddie, a young man in his 20s, had been living with continual self-blame since his mother's suicide. On the night she killed herself, he'd visited her at her home just a few hours before and they'd had a disagreement; in the morning he found her dead in bed from a drug overdose.

After this shock, his life pretty much fell to pieces. He felt guilty and responsible for his mother's death. If they hadn't argued, would she still be alive today? He continued to punish himself, thinking he'd contributed to her suicide, and withdrew from anything that gave him pleasure. How could he continue to enjoy himself after the suffering his mother had gone through?'  

Irish Independent Article on Hoffman

We're in the news again! A double page spread on Hoffman in the Irish Independent a few weeks ago. 
Thank you to Jeremy, Sammy and Harry for sharing your experience of the Process and to Journalist Vicki Notaro for writing such an informative article.

As Hoffman Graduate, Sammy says,"For years I had the feeling of deep pain in my heart, like a void in the middle of my chest when I got upset or down; now I can hardly remember it. I love the fact that the Process is so intense, it allows you to get stuck in and sort stuff out."

Hoffman Monthly Top Tip

Singing Penguin
A Sense of Purpose
Do you believe that you were put on earth for a purpose? Have you ever set yourself a Vision for how you would like your life to be? 

It only takes a few minutes to set a Vision: 
Make yourself comfortable (at home or at your desk - wherever!) Now close your eyes and visualise yourself living the life you want. Get a sense of your future relationship with yourself. Then move onto imagining the life you want with others at home and in your career. 

Open your eyes and write it down. Be as clear and precise as you can. And now imagine how your life would be if you achieved your vision. Breathe and let that sit with you for a few moments. 

Acknowledge the steps you have taken so far by setting your Vision and see if there is anything you can do today to get the ball rolling... 

Until Next Month...
