many years of healing workshops and therapies of sorts for my personal growth I
would say this method has been the most profound and holistic for me.

fear of being 'exposed'. It wasn't my art I was worried about people being
critical of as I know I have enough support from clients and admirers of my
work, I'm confident here, it was 'myself' I felt would be annihilated if I make
a big stand forward and say "here I am and this is what I do" in the world at
when I spoke up, both parents shut me down and with harsh criticism. I simply
didn’t have a voice
and worse felt attacked and annihilated when I spoke my mind. I've had to work
on my fear of failure as well as success. Doing the Hoffman Process took me too
deep into those fears and to have the courage to put a spotlight on myself and
feel safe to express my true self and not wear any masks.
methodology is amazing taking me through my whole lifetime in just one week. I
went through the most agonizing pain, feeling the depths of my grief and anger.
And through experiencing this pain and this has to be gut pain not just a few
little tears and angry shouts we then have a chance to alleviate the 'suffering'. We suffer when everyday we are reinacting
our negative patterns in daily dramas.

patterns for which I consciously or unconsciously adopted from my parents. I
learned about 'negative
love', how we adapt ourselves in a 'negative way' to have approval, love,
acceptance and respect, this learned by our parents behaviour. How we 'transfer' our negative patterns on people around us to remind us over and over
again the suffering and pain we haven’t addressed.

of ourselves and the day, it can be the same old picture or a beautiful new

Hoffman Process helps us expand on this creativity to find our true selves, be
in harmony and awareness; to integrate all our bodies and find our true selves

more aware and awake to who we truly are.

grounding and better footing to deal with life and my spiritual
growth. There is no point putting a beautiful new roof on a house that is

The Hoffman Process is an 8 day intensive residential
course in which you're skilfully and compassionately shown how to let go of the
past, release pent-up stress, self-limiting behaviours and resentments, and
start creating the future you desire. Since 1967, more than 50,000 people, world
wide, have used the techniques of Hoffman to achieve personal strength, clarity,
and inner peace. They have also felt the benefits of developing loving
relationships with family members and being able to communicate more effectively
at home and at work.
