'When I did the Process in 2012, I was a commercial real estate lawyer living in London. Realising that I didn’t have to be a workaholic, wear the mask of a people-pleaser or be stuck in a career that wasn’t for me were all huge revelations.

The highlight of the week was meeting my essence – my spirit – and experiencing for the first time a wonderful sense of wholeness. I wanted this feeling to become a part of my daily life, so I set off on a quest to make this possible. As the Hoffman strapline says, I was serious about change!

Leaving a career in law was a huge leap of faith, but once I allowed my spirit to lead the way, opportunities and experiences that I never imagined opened up. Guiding a forest bathing walk for a BBC programme on the Broughton Hall Estate in Yorkshire is just one example that has come my way. The past few years since the Process have been hugely transformational for me...'

The Hoffman Scholarship Fund was launched in 1997 in conjunction with our charity partner ECT . It allows us to accept donations towards subsidised Process and workshop places for people who might otherwise not be able to attend.

Inspired by her own experience on the Process, Hoffman graduate Ann-Margret Kearney will be running the Hackney half-marathon in May to raise money for the Scholarship Fund. In her own words;

'Learning to understand my own mental health; rationalise it like a communication strategy budget, understand it like algebra and have tools to keep on building myself has seen me live some of the very best and most authentic years of my life to date. It has, thus far, changed my approach to life for good... Anything you can afford will be hugely appreciated. I think if we all start small, just helping one person each, taking one moment a day to be kind, the world would be a much nicer place to be.'

More than 100 Hoffman grads took part in for our first-ever Zoom video call in January. Leading on from that really positive response, we're delighted to be able to announce two new webinars.

The first will be led by Hoffman MD Serena Gordon on Wednesday 18 March and will be a tour of the Hoffman Toolkit , with the opportunity for a Q&A at the end.

The second will be led by Matthew Pruen on Wednesday 8 April , and will be on his specialist subject of using the Hoffman tools in relationships (romantic and otherwise).

The calls are free using Zoom. If you haven't used it before, it's very straightforward, and you'll be sent full instructions in advance on how to take part.

If you're not able to join on these dates, remember you can always connect with other Hoffies on the Grad Connect page, attend a Closure , or pop along to a Welcome Home .

We also offer short catch-up calls if you want to reconnect to your Hoffman experience. To book a call, email graduates@hoffmaninstitute.co.uk .
The Hoffman Q2 offers the opportunity to reconnect to your Process experience and work on any new issues that are coming up in your life today.

Our Q2 in May will offer the opportunity to expand your learning in the beautiful surroundings of Broughton Hall. This historic stately home in Yorkshire offers a range of shared, double and single accommodation, ideal for anyone considering doing the Q2 with friends, partners or family members (as long as they've done the Process too).

The three-day retreat will run from Saturday 2 to Monday 4 May inclusive, and is supervised by Hoffman UK founder Tim Laurence (pictured). Tim worked closely with Bob Hoffman in California before bringing the Process to the UK in 1995. He has taught the Hoffman Process around the world for nearly 30 years, and is the author of the Hoffman book You Can Change Your Life.

If you can't make these dates, the next Q2 will be at Florence House in July. Details are here.

March's top tip: how often do you say 'no'?
'No' may be only two letters, but it's a powerful statement!

Reflect on what this word means to you. How often might you say to yourself 'I can't do that', 'I can't allow myself to have that', 'I'm not someone who does that' or 'That's not for me'?

Or do you say 'no' to others and push them away by saying, 'I can't accept that', 'I don't need that' or 'Please don't worry about me'?

This month, make some notes about how you negotiate life with the word 'no' and whether you're being honest with yourself when you say it. Consider what might happen if you started saying 'yes' instead. You might even surprise yourself!
