My Process - March 2012

I was a self-development junkie, buying every program, book, seminar, workshop and personal improvement series I could get my hands on. I was always trying to "fix" myself - to heal the deepest hurts. Yet, no tool, no therapy, no amount of journalling and purging could ever get to the aching heart of the matter.

On top of my own pain, I had a teenage daughter who was suicidal and my marriage was falling apart under the strain of life and my inability to cope. I was literally praying for a miracle when Hoffman came to my mind.

Three years earlier, in a single conversation, a professional colleague had recommended that I drop everything and go do the Hoffman Process, immediately. At that time, I thanked her but filed it away as not possible. Life was busy, I had a business, kids were small, there was a cost; I had all kinds of reasons why it wasn't the right time.

And then, here it was. The right time.

My single goal was to lean into my Process and do whatever work was requested of me. I was scared, and exhausted, and tired being in emotional, mental and physical pain - but I was hopeful.

The Process was a times intense, but it was also deeply relieving and not any more painful than the way I'd been living for the past 20 years. In fact, the Hoffman Process was the only program or healing modality I have ever invested in that actually brought deep and meaningful release and relief.

Five years ago, I changed my life for the better and the gifts of my Process continue to unfold even now.

I have experienced healing in relationships with those I love - both living and dead. I've forgiven myself for the ways I've hurt myself, and others. I've been blessed with deeper compassion, I'm a better parent, and a more loving partner. More importantly, I respect and love myself as much as any other person I care for.

I spent 20 years suffering; limping along in emotional pain, sick with self-loathing. I've enjoyed the last 5 years living with a settled conscience, a peaceful heart and a silent mind. I'm happy. My daughter still lives. My marriage is strong.

Life still throws curve balls, but with the gifts of my Process, I am better equipped to manage. I've never been healthier - mind, body and spirit.

With love, light and big gratitude.

Much love, Kim

“The Hoffman Process was an experience that changed me on very deep and profound level. I left the weekend with a new way of living life…a more authentic way of being myself.”


Cindy is an artist from Bala Ontario
"I found my way to the Hoffman Process during a very difficult time in my life when everything I thought I knew was changing. I was lost and fearful that I would never find my way out of the fog, but the Process helped me to access a part of myself that was more solid than anything I had ever known; a part that I never even knew existed. I began to develop the faith that not only could I handle the circumstances that had arisen in my life, but that I could use those same circumstances to my advantage and THRIVE. With what I learned during that week, and the support that I continued to receive after the Process, my life began to change in the most beautiful ways. I learned to identify destructive patterns in my life that were holding me back from reaching my potential and was given the tools to begin changing those patterns. The work continues, but the Hoffman Process was the springboard that launched me towards a more intentional and creative life."


As a business owner for many years I have come to realize as most leaders do, how important continuous self-development is. I had become a TEC member and participated with my group for many years which definitely advanced my business skill tool box. One of my learnings is that a leader must be as personally and emotionally balanced as possible which led me at the advice of my TEC chair to attended a Hoffman Process. That retreat helped me understand some of my own hidden emotional blocks that were holding me back from being all I could be and helped me to be much more emotionally intuitive about my staff and my loved ones. Attending the Hoffman Process was a significant turning point for me in my life balance and my self-awareness. I have since sent numerous employees and loved ones whom just knew something could be better in their life but not sure how to get it, to the retreat with very good results. For anyone who is looking to dig a little deeper into self-development I highly recommend Hoffman.

The Hoffman Process saved my life! But even more importantly, I learned from the process to find freedom in my life. Freedom from suicidal thoughts. Freedom from judging myself for the things that had been done to me. Freedom from holding grudges for other peoples’ actions, because I can see where they are coming from, rather than just their actions.

It’s great to be ALIVE!!


While nothing can take away tough days and challenges, the Hoffman Process did give me tools to become aware of what was happening, how those dark side thoughts were trying to spiral me downward, how to look at things with self love and self worth, and choose to live in love, joy, hope with focus on living in the moment. It enables me to "stop, drop and roll" my mindset into a healthy one, recognizing that the term "free will choice" is actually a really great and positive thing. If you want to see "in real-time" how Hoffman has helped me process the last couple of years with it's challenges through divorce, surgeries, a cancer diagnosis, chemotherapy (now all clear) and the loss of my Mom, you can do so by checking out my blog at ineverclaimedtobenormal.wordpress.com

Robert, Jazz Vocalist

The Hoffman Process was a turning point in both my personal and professional life. My development as a person had reached a climax; I was at a point where my lack of self-love affected my work, my relationship with my wife and family, and more importantly my relationship with myself.

I knew that if I did not look at myself closely that I would not be able to face a period of struggles that were consuming my life. I needed to be honest with myself and my loved ones and face what I thought was an insurmountable hill to climb.

My week at Sanctum changed my life. The tools that I discovered to use have been paramount in renewing my outlook on life, sharing my feelings, and not being ashamed of who I really am. One is never truly “healed”, but one can now face life and challenges on a more balanced and understandable plain.
My sister has recently completed the retreat as well, and it was one of the greatest gifts I could share with a human.
Thank you, Hoffman, for opening my mind and heart to love and healing.

Dr. Christine ICADC ICCS

The Hoffman Process was a life changing experience for me. I was transformed from the sad and resentful person I had warped into, to the spiritual, wholesome being I was always meant to be. After 17 years of not speaking to my father, I was able to reconnect with him in love and light and we spent the last five years of his life in a loving, respectful father / daughter relationship. I thank the process, and my fab teachers Barbara and Dietmar, for this incredible gift of a shot of a second life in one lifetime. I now recommend the process to many people I meet with confidence that they too will have a life-changing experience.


For years I had a clear vision of the importance of my life’s work, the Arrowsmith Program, in alleviating the suffering of individuals struggling with learning difficulties and how it needed to be accessible on the world stage. I also knew my patterns were a very significant limiting factor in my realizing this vision. In 1996 I became aware of the Hoffman Process and its tenet of recognizing self-limiting patterns and learning tools to reduce and eliminate the impact of these patterns. It was a profoundly life altering experience. Today my program is in over 90 schools in seven countries and expanding at a rapid rate. I have the courage to stand in my worth, ask for and receive support to realize my vision and allow this work to flow out into the world with ease, grace and heart integrity. I know I would not be where I am today without the Hoffman Process. As a member of TEC, an entrepreneur group that shares best practices, I believe the Hoffman Process is a powerful option to support entrepreneurs in aligning with their vision and mission.
