A new me? Hoffman features in this month's Cosmo
Sophie Goddard is a freelance journalist, writing for magazines like Marie Claire, Grazia and Cosmopolitan. In this month's Cosmo, Sophie writes about her Hoffman Process experience and, amongst many things, what she gained from it (clue: it has four legs and barks a lot)

'I'd been going through what you'd call a rough patch. I was 34 and single, and one by one, friends seemed to be slowly peeling away from me, forming families of their own. I had no idea what my own future held, and that thought - along with the growing sense of loneliness that came with it - became a constant companion...'

Thank you Sophie for sharing your experience. You can buy Cosmopolitan at all good newsagents, order online, or view via Readly or Apple News+.
We're big fans of the Tim Ferris show in the Hoffman office. We're also big fans of TOM'S shoes founder Blake Mycoskie,who has spoken in the past about his Process experience.

In a recent podcast with Tim, you can hear Blake speak about his own Hoffman Process, and his reasons for sharing his experience (starting from around 15 mins);

'I went to Hoffman in 2000. And after Hoffman, I remember coming back to the TOMS office and our CEO at the time, he’s like, “Man, you look lighter. Physically lighter.” And I was like, “I feel lighter.” 

On The Hoffman Process, they take you through a series of exercises. It’s very experiential and it’s very unconventional, but it is more effective than anything I’ve ever seen. And through the week, what you do is you really recognise what patterns you have from both of your parents that you want to let go of, that aren’t serving you anymore. You also see the vicious cycles that play out in your life. If you look through 20, 30 years, you can see, 'Oh, I do this and it leads to this, and ultimately leads to this. And that has really not served me'.

It helps you become a better parent. It helps you become a better spouse, it helps you become a better leader for sure. I have goosebumps over my whole body, just getting the opportunity to share how meaningful Hoffman was because I’m so grateful to it.”

We've now completed three socially-distanced Processes at Florence House (pictured) and it's so good to be back in action! We're currently running the Hoffman Process with a reduced number of participants to allow everyone single accommodation, logistical changes to allow for social distancing, a ramped-up cleaning schedule and zero physical contact. We're 100% confident that this can all happen without compromising the work of the Process.

Our next few dates are on a Wait List*, but we do have availability from late October onwards. You can register online by clicking the orange link and paying a £500 deposit. Our enrolment team will contact you, and if it turns out that the Process isn't right for you at this time - or is postponed due to circumstances beyond our control - we'll refund your deposit in full.

September 19-25: Wait List*
October 3-9: Wait List*
October 17-23: Wait List*
November 14-20: Available
December 12-18: Available
*When a Process is on a wait list, a place may still become available. Ring the office on +44(0)1903 88 99 90

The Hoffman Essentials - Quench your thirst
The Hoffman Essentials is a two-day online workshop that provides you with tools for life. Featuring taught sessions, solo exercises, visualisations and activities away from the screen, the weekend will introduce you to Hoffman techniques and practices that you can take away and use immediately, without having to commit to a full seven-day retreat.

Workshops are led by two members of the Hoffman team, and numbers are limited to provide a small and safe environment.

The intention of the course is to get couples connected again; through clear communication, witnessing each other and rebuilding respect, trust and intimacy.

Times: 9.00am for a 9.30 start, until 5.00pm
Venue: TBC, central London
Cost: £600 per couple (Reserve your place with a £200 deposit; £400 balance due by Friday 9 October)

The Hoffman enrolment team is available on the phone or via email, and happy to answer any questions you might have about the Process.

A one-to-one assessment call gives you time to discuss what happens on the course in detail, and also to decide whether it's right for you at this time. If you do then go on to register, you're already a step ahead!

The calls are completely confidential, and you don't need to have registered for a course to book a slot.

Call us on 01903 88 99 90 or email enrolment@hoffmaninstitute.co.uk and we'll take it from there.
