The early Roman calendar designated March 1st as the New Year. So, let's treat this time as the beginning of a new year by renewing our love and gratitude to our parents. They are our roots, and without them we wouldn't have grown up to be the radiant people that we are!

Sharing love for their family this month:
  • Jay Green and his daughters
  • Goldie celebrates with his family
  • Hoffman family gathering in Dublin
  • Mother's Day Top tip to say I love you
Thank you to all parents out there, from the Hoffman Team. 

Taking the drama out of a crisis


Jay and Stella Green
Jay Green's teaching career began in a classroom in Surrey in 1989. Now he's the Director of Drama at Brighton College, East Sussex and in this interview he reflects on how doing the Hoffman Process in 2013 has affected work and family dynamics - with a little help from his teenage daughter, Stella. 

'When my own daughters are caught in the present to the detriment of perspective and general happiness, I find it helps to encourage them look back at what's gone before and forwards to what will surely follow. I've noticed this transition usually involves a cup of tea or occasionally chocolate.'

Goldie's golden moment


We were thrilled to see photos of Hoffman graduate Goldie with his wife and daughters at Buckingham Palace this week. Goldie was awarded an MBE by Prince Charles for services to the music industry and to young people.

Goldie attended the service and later posted photos to his official Facebook page saying; "It's a bit of a shocker but a very, very beautiful thing to happen. I think it also stands for what you can achieve - anything really." We're delighted to see all of Goldie's hard work - including significant charity work with inner-city children - officially recognised. 
Musician, actor and artist Goldie did the Hoffman Process in 2005 and has since spoken publicly about the difference it made to his life;

"I did the Process because I was a very angry, egotistical and arrogant young man. My anger could reach catastrophic proportions but now I have the tools to harness it and I am humble about who I am. Hoffman really helps you get a sense of balance about life and not only do you benefit, but those around you do too. I'm doing things I never thought I could do before."

Hoffman Top Tip 


Mother goose with goslings In the UK, we celebrate Mothers' Day on Saturday 6th March. But you could also celebrate your mother today...

Close your eyes and form a clear picture of your mother in your mind. See her as she was when you were a child. Try to remember what she wore, how she moved, what her expressions were. See her in a place of joy and contentment; see her as her radiant self. 

Now try to keep those images of her with you during your day. Imagine her by your side, talking to you and sharing your day. She might call you by the name she called you when you were a child. Even at work, imagine her sitting near you as you work. You can probably ask her questions and she'll give you answers. How does it feel to have the connection to your mother now? Enjoy the gift that this woman has given you. 

Finally, take the opportunity to tell her you love her.

This top tip is taken from the Hoffman Graduate Journal, 365 days of useful reminders of the Hoffman tools and techniques, as well as fun and challenging tasks with intriguing ideas to continue your Process experience. Order your copy here.
Until next month...
