The Hoffman French Retreat

Have you found that promises you made to yourself since you finished the Hoffman Process have fallen by the wayside?
Have your great intentions – like getting fit, writing your novel or launching that brilliant business idea – been accompanied by resistance, self-sabotage, overwhelm or frustration?
Would you like to get more out of life, and connect to the future your Spiritual Self knows you deserve?

Then this course is for you.

Supervising Hoffman faciliator Matthew Pruen and self-esteem mentor and shamanic practitioner Emma Macpherson have built up almost four decades of Hoffman experience between them. They also hold extensive skills in relationship work, and are well-practiced at working with individuals and couples.
With their expert guidance, and tuning into the group energy of other Hoffman grads, you’ll have the opportunity to work though your resistance, deepen your connection to your spiritual self, gain inner confidence and build community to help keep you on the ‘right road’.

  • Create new opportunities in your relationships, family and work
  • Connect to the future that is waiting for you
  • Refine your use of the Hoffman tools and learn some new techniques
This five day retreat is suitable for anyone who has completed the Hoffman Process and would like to open the door to a positive future. Our beautiful venue near Bordeaux – The French Retreat – is rapidly winning a reputation as a holistic centre and space for well-being, the arts and personal growth. It’s the perfect space to extend your Hoffman experience and hone your post-Process vision.

‘In absolutely stunning countryside, in their beautiful and comfortable farmhouse, Matthew and Emma have created the perfect week to revisit Hoffman tools & also learn discover wonderful new rituals and experiences. Their teaching styles compliment each other perfectly. The food was continually fantastic. There’s plenty of time to relax and reflect too and to swim in the pool or explore the area. My Hoffman circle has got wider and I feel as close to this group of people as I do to my original Hoffman buddies.’

‘A powerful week in France, a way to re-engage with the Hoffman philosophy and tools but in far more relaxed way than the Process…’

‘The setting is lovely and the hosting and facilitation was impressive and welcoming. Go for it!’

‘Truly magical! The location and food were out-of-this-world and the workshops extremely interesting and insightful. I’d go again in a heartbeat!’
