Living in an emotional storm...
How to find and keep the love you want
When her first marriage came to an end, Wilma Mae Basta started to wonder whether a lack of self-knowledge and a 'winging it' approach were to blame for its failure;

'There was something mysterious and esoteric about the concept of a life union. It was something that I grew up expecting to do, but I had almost zero understanding of what marriage was, and not a lot of understanding of who I was. So, unsurprisingly, the marriage failed...'

When life threw up the opportunity for a second marriage, Wilma Mae and her new husband Victor were determined to approach any hurdles with better tools and greater clarity. But, even after they'd both done the Hoffman Process, it wasn't always smooth sailing.

' When Victor came back from Hoffman, he was all sunshine, love and happiness – but I still felt as if I was living in an emotional storm. I was resentful because I‘d helped to get him fixed but there was no one to fix me...'

Goldie: The Journey Man
Fabulous new album from musician, artist & DJ

Hoffman Graduate Clifford Price MBE is better known by his stage name Goldie. Goldie initially gained exposure for his work as a graffiti artist in the 1980s, and then became well known in the 90s for his work as a producer, DJ and musician. As well as a career spanning art and music, he also has an impressive list of acting credits, ranging from Bond films to Eastenders and has appeared in a number of celebrity reality television shows.

Goldie's new LP Journey Man is set for launch in June, and he tells us that much of the album has been inspired by his journey before and after Hoffman. There might be a treat or two in there for fellow Hoffies... We can't wait to hear it.

You can listen to Goldie being interviewed recently by DJ Target on Radio One here and listen to 'I Adore You', the first single from Journey Man, here

'I had all the money in the world, but I wasn't happy... Hoffman really really unpacked a box in my life...'

An evening with Tim Laurence
 Monday 20 March, Alternatives, London

Many of you will have worked with or met Tim Laurence, Hoffman supervising teacher and founder of Hoffman UK. His book You Can Change Your Life is now on its second edition, and is available in nine languages.

Tim trained with Bob Hoffman back in the 80s and is one of the most experienced teachers of the Hoffman Process around the world. 

The talk, called Can We Ever Really Change? will look at the ways that we can change - and at the wisdom of leaving aside what we can't. 

Join Tim at Alternatives, 197 Piccadilly, W1 on Monday 20 March 2017, 7- 8.30pm. This evening is a perfect opportunity to bring friends and family and to hear more about Hoffman and the healing path of transformation. Doors open 6.30pm

‘You need to change yourself first - only after that will real changes happen in your life.’

Calling all therapists & counsellors

Our enrolment team regularly receive booking enquiries from people for whom it's not quite the right time to do the Process, for a variety of reasons. Sometimes this can be because the pain of a bereavement or relationship breakup is still too raw, occasionally addiction or post-trauma issues are active; sometimes there are issues from childhood that need to be explored.

When this happens, we like to be able to refer enquirers to a reputable counsellor or therapist in the area where they live, or who specialises in a specific discipline that they may be interested in finding out more about. If that's you, and you'd like to be included on our therapist referral list, we'd be delighted to hear from you.
