Whose rules do you live by? Usually your internal do's and don'ts are picked up in your childhood. As you grow up you learn the 'right' way to do things, which can simply be what's acceptable or traditional in your family or culture. As an adult it can be incredibly liberating to question the hidden rules you live by and ask if they actually contribute to your happiness.
One person who has done this very successfully is author, Hoffman graduate and life coach Priya Rana Kapoor. She shows you what a difference giving yourself permission can make in her new book Give YourSelf Permission to Live Your Life which is featured in this month's newsletter. 
One effect of giving yourself permission to step outside what's familiar to you is the capacity to be innovative and to have a far greater impact on the world than you may ever have imagined possible. Bob Hoffman was certainly someone who did that when he founded the Hoffman Process to 'bring peace to the world one person at a time'. Recently Hoffman centres around the world met in California to celebrate that vision and to continue his example of constant evolution. We feel he'd be proud to see the first ever Hoffman Process taking place in Russia this month. What a fantastic achievement.
If you'd like to experience more fun, freedom and expansion in your life, join our experiential Introduction Day on Saturday July 12 or come to our Information Evening on Tuesday June 3 in London or Wednesday June 18 in Dublin. 
If you're a Hoffman graduate and interested in re-experiencing the Process you have an opportunity to join our first Graduate-Only Process - July 5-11. We also have a Support Call - Wednesday June 11 on Listen to Your Body
Wishing you a month of fun and freedom

Give YourSelf Permission....to have fun!
Priya Rana KapoorHow often do you do something for the sheer joy of doing it? Never mind if it achieves anything or has a point to it - it's just glorious fun. For Priya Kapoor guilt-free fun was a distant memory until she did the Hoffman Process in 2009. With a Master's degree in counselling psychology, and after working for years as a therapist, she felt that Hoffman was very much a 'last ditch effort to save my personal life'. The gifts that she left with surprised her. Five years on she says:
'By the end of the Process I understood and felt how supportive and loving relationships could be and most importantly the Process gave me permission to have fun! Honestly, I went around my whole life feeling guilty about doing joyous things. I always felt I had to attach some productive meaning to everything I did. I never really realised that I could just have fun for the sake of it and that would not only enrich my soul, my well-being, my motivation but also many of my relationships.'
Priya's new book Give YourSelf Permission to Live Your Life has just come out to rave reviews. It has been described as 'insightful and compassionate' by Shawn Achor NY Times bestselling author of The Happiness Advantage' and frequent guest on Oprah's Super Soul Sunday  ....

Hoffman International Conference - 2014                                                                    Back to Top
Hoffman International Conference 2014

During the week of May 12-17 Hoffman teachers and organisers from all around the world met in Napa, California at an historic spa resort dating back to the gold rush in 1852. White Sulphur Springs, which happens to be the main site for the Process in the USA, was a perfect setting for Argentinians to talk to Australians and Italians to exchange ideas with the Irish. After sessions on new ideas for teaching and best practices for pre and post course support, the evenings were spent dancing and simply getting to know each other, with the grand finale being a loud and passionate Mariachi band from Mexico getting everyone moving. 


The main theme of the conference was 'A Fresh Start'. How to keep our work fresh and alive, and for this we had sessions on Neuroscience, on the latest research about our particular methods, on learning styles, and even on the music that different centres now use as a backdrop. John Grey, author of Men Are From Mars, Women are from Venus was the key note speaker. John was highly entertaining on the subject of relationships and shared some tips on how to keep love alive. There were over 30 Hoffman teachers at the Conference, some who had been trained by Bob Hoffman and have known each other over 25 years, and others who were meeting for the first time. It's only every two years that we come together like this and with so much passion shared for the Hoffman work, the energy was high and most of us stayed up far too late! 


The feeling of being a united community was something cited by all, along with a fresh commitment to continue delivering this work of healing and growth in the best way we could. For many more years. The next conference will be in Venice in May, 2016.

Graduate only Process: July 5 - 11                                                                  Back to Top

 Have you ever wished that you could
 do the Process again? 

For many years, we've heard previous participants tell us, 'I loved the Process - and now my life has changed, I'd really like to do it again.' Well, you now have the opportunity to join us on a Process held exclusively for Hoffman graduates from July 5-11 - and now in the 7 day format.
Our 2014 Graduate only Process will be held at our popular venue Florence House in Seaford, East Sussex. For the first time couples, siblings and friends can do the Process together. The Process starts on Saturday and ends the following Friday.
'I did the Process in my 20s. It was so valuable. Now that I'm 42, I have such a different perspective on life. I became a parent, I've been married for 10 years, I'm ready to look at things I couldn't look at the age of 22, because I hadn't experienced them yet.' Hoffman graduate 2014 USA 
There will be only 24 places available, and we expect these to go quickly.
