What do you love, value or care about?
I was very touched by this photograph that Hoffman graduate Lizi Summer took a few days ago.

I think the reason it grabbed me was a reminder that in nature, just as in ourselves, our sweet, tender heart is always present and central to our being. However hard our exterior and whatever layers we have added to protect ourselves, our heart goes on beating away, keeping us alive and strong, even when we feel vulnerable or not ready to be seen. 

If you found the past year challenging and maybe felt disconnected from self-love and battered by all that the world was throwing your way, remember that the beautiful, wise, centred part of yourself is always there and that you can reconnect to your true self at any time. 

As a check in with yourself as we start this year, try asking yourself these simple questions: What do I love, value and care about? Then set an intention to welcome in new connections and new opportunities and to let go of those things you can't change or that no longer serve you.

Thank you for being an essential part of our Hoffman community and for keeping in touch when you do.

Sending love from all of us here at Hoffman UK and we look forward to connecting with you in 2022.

"I cannot blame what happened when I was 26 for any issues, because the family of origin ‘set up’ was firmly established by then. One chilly Sunday morning in March 1997, I jumped on my bike and attacked a downhill track in woods with more speed than skill and ended up wiping out on a corner. The tree was okay, but I managed to burst fracture my spine, whilst also breaking my jaw in three places and collapsing both lungs (not at the same time, obviously). One air ambulance trip to Stoke Mandeville via Maidstone General later, and I found my future included a wheelchair. My life was changed forever more...

I don’t blame this incident for my issues, but it acted like a magnifying glass, making things seem bigger or worse.

When I was considering Hoffman, because of the wheelchair, I ended up having a very long chat with Serena Gordon, Managing Director of Hoffman UK, to discuss access arrangements etc. There’s an air of mystique about the Process, but Serena was happy to discuss in detail virtually every aspect of the course. I didn’t realise how varied the activities would be at the time, but subsequently I found I really enjoyed the different approaches that Bob Hoffman wove into the Process, including CBT, mindfulness, and meditation.

If you ever feel like ‘Stop the world – I want to get off!’ then spending a week with like-minded souls, away from all technology (and alcohol) is highly recommended. It will literally change your life. For me, it was a magical week and the hardest part was leaving and saying goodbye."

'For me, Hoffman was most transformative in the realm of forgiveness. I realized that I harbored a lot of resentment, mostly toward family members, but also toward experiences and people outside of my family.

They take really good care of you there. I’ve actually never felt so nurtured... And I discovered in doing the work that there were all these resentments and I was able to purge those resentments and I have to say, it completely erased all feelings that I was wronged by anybody or anything.

And that’s powerful and it’s completely behavioral nature... I’ve recommended that several people go. It is powerful and it does last.'

Is there such a thing as a 'perfect relationship' and why do other peoples' relationships always look that way?

With years of experience of working with couples and individuals, Matthew and Emma Pruen have designed two new relationship workshops for us in 2022.

Each workshop is relevant for either individuals seeking a loving relationship or for couples attending together. Over two days Matthew and Emma will share their techniques and practical exercises and throw in a healthy dose of personal anecdotes as well.

You can watch our 5 minute interview with Matthew and Emma here.
