Join our Hoffman French Retreat!

Are you looking for an opportunity to get away and be part of that lovely Hoffman energy again? To connect to the life your spiritual self is calling for? Would you like to shift some residual baggage and connect to your own inner magic? Even after the Process, sometimes our visions or good intentions can get pushed to one side as the routine of life kicks in.  Don’t worry, we’ve created this special retreat especially for you!

Our five day retreat is suitable for anyone who has completed the Hoffman Process and wishes to open the door to a positive future. It’s a great way to have a holiday and be beautifully looked after in the company of other Hoffman graduates.  It is also a wonderful space for couples who have both done the Process to come into a deeper connection together and share a new Hoffman experience.

The retreat is led by Supervising Hoffman facilitator Matthew Pruen and his wife Emma who is a self-esteem mentor and shamanic practitioner. Together they have opened up their beautiful home in the south west of France (near Bordeaux) and they will guide you each day and ensure all aspects of your Quadrinity are well catered for and pampered!

‘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!’
