Beloved Hoffman teacher and coach, Hilary Illick, is our guest this week. On the first night of her Process in 2000, Hilary experienced a life-changing moment as she first put her bat to the pillow. In those first few moments of bashing, she found permission to feel her emotions and use her voice and body to release in a way she'd longed to. She felt euphoric when done. The Process gave her the permission she'd been waiting for her whole life to no longer constrain her vibrant, vital Spirit. The next morning, Hilary realized she wanted to become a Hoffman Process teacher. Eight years later, her vision became a reality. The main thread throughout this conversation is how healing brings us the ability and opportunity to accept our imperfection. It's a vitally important point. The Process doesn't fix. The Process heals. As Hilary says, "We come to be healed and in that healing, we accept that we're imperfect and then we're less defensive about our imperfections." Hilary feels deeply that healing work must be available to all. She raises an important question: "Who gets to do this expensive healing work?" She acknowledges that it is a privilege to be able to take time off of work and go away to heal oneself. It's something that she would love to see available to all. More About Hilary Illick Hilary completed the Hoffman Process in 2000. She then became a Hoffman graduate group facilitator in 2001. In 2008, her vision became reality when she was certified as a Hoffman Process teacher.  Over her years as a Hoffman teacher, Hilary has contributed to the development of many Hoffman programs, including being a member of the Rejuvenation Team in 2013. She is currently a Supervising teacher of the Hoffman Process. Hilary is the mother of four young adults and a new grandmother to twin boys. She and her partner Pierre Valette are dual citizens of the U.S. and France and raised their children in the international school system.  Hilary is deeply proud of and moved by her children’s paths of contribution, as they pursue careers in social work, social justice, and sustainability initiatives.  Her home base is in the Boston area where she has a private practice as a life coach, executive coach, and personal transformation facilitator.

    S3E28: Kevin Eyres – Beyond the Intellect

    36:02

    Deep in a career in technology, Kevin Eyres, now beloved Hoffman teacher and coach, realized he wanted to grow "beyond the intellect." As a result, he took the Hoffman Process. Taking the Process supported him in journeying beyond his intellect to a deeper embodiment of his whole Quadrinity - body, emotional self, intellect, and Spiritual Self. Kevin loves to grow through new experiences. Even with this innate love, Kevin's path to becoming a Hoffman teacher was, in his words, "a rocky road." With a beautiful heart, Kevin shares how he came up against plenty of negative patterns within himself around status, title, and identity as he followed his desire to become a teacher. One thing Kevin knows from a career in tech and entrepreneurship is that failure is more a state of mind than a static single event. Listen in as Kevin shares a powerful way to reframe failure. If you haven't yet heard, the Hoffman Institute has a new app. Kevin is the project lead and shares with Drew the process of designing and creating the app. The entire project was and continues to be community-minded. More About Kevin Eyres With an agile heart, Kevin Eyres helps executive leaders be fearlessly human. He helps them discover that the real challenge often lies in limiting beliefs, and the lack of emotional connection within. He combines his deep business leadership experience with spirituality, mindfulness, and psychology. This supports him to amplify love and self-kindness which ultimately results in leading with courage, agency, and purpose. Previously, Kevin has led the international hyper-growth strategy and operations as the Managing Director of LinkedIn Europe as well as MD for AltaVista International and SideStep/Kayak. He has been a long-time member of YPO and is a top-rated Forum facilitator and trainer. Kevin's work has a deep common thread of helping others realize the best in themselves. He expresses his talent at guiding others through his work as a teacher at the Hoffman Institute, an executive coach, as well as through his service on corporate and non-profit boards. Kevin loves being husband and dad most of all. Extra fun activities are ice hockey, singing, cycling, meditation, and geeking out on all things tech and design.

    S3E27: Ward Ashman & Raz Ingrasci – Hoffman & the Enneagram

    56:20

    Ward Ashman and Raz Ingrasci are our guests today. In this conversation with Drew, they share a little history and some deep understanding of these two living traditions - the Hoffman Process and the Enneagram. The Hoffman Process and the Enneagram share a common root. Together, Ward and Raz explore the nature of transformational work through both the Hoffman Process and the Enneagram. Ward shares with us the work he does with the Nine Doors of the Enneagram in corporate settings. He sees the nine Enneagram points as doors rather than types. Through this new understanding, Ward has guided many in the corporate world to a greater understanding of themselves, those they love, and those they work with. Raz tells the story of how the Hoffman Process came to be with the support of Claudio Naranjo. Naranjo was one of the early pioneers of the Enneagram in the United States. Claudio also worked with Bob Hoffman to refashion the early Process done with individuals into the group setting that it is today. More about Ward Ashman As the founder of Trimergence LLC, a San Francisco Bay Area consulting firm, Ward leverages a lifetime of broad, deep, and unusual life experiences. Ward invented and patented the Trimergence® Turbo Evolution Platform which combines a tightly coordinated matrix of self-awareness and interpersonal tools to address all aspects of human relationships. Trimergence enables leaders, teams, and entire organizations to build collaborative, innovative, creative partnerships based on the required bedrock of mutually evolving trust. The hallmark of the Trimergence system is to enable people to develop sophisticated, precise, and in-depth awareness of themselves and others as a required navigational map to fulfill maximum interpersonal effectiveness and collaboration. Ward finished college, majoring in psychology at the University of Colorado – Boulder, in the late ’60s. Inspired by the intrinsic spirit of cross-cultural adventure and seeking his life purpose, he traveled much of the world for six years. As a result, he had a wide variety of life experiences ranging from performing as a rock star in Prophecy, a band well-known throughout Indonesia and Southeast Asia, to being a yogic monk in India. Once home, Ward pursued his love of psychology, completing a master’s degree in Marriage and Family Counseling at the University of Santa Clara in 1978. He immediately launched his Ph.D. studies in Clinical Psychology at Temple University, graduating in 1983. His internship at the Philadelphia Child Guidance Center at the University of Pennsylvania gave him an extraordinary background in family systems theory and therapy. These serve as the fundamentals of his work in business and organizations. Ward is a member of the Hoffman Institute’s Advisory Council. He has three children and is married to his wife Diane. Ward loves living in Mountain View, CA, the epicenter of Silicon Valley. More about Raz Ingrasci Raz is a UC Berkeley graduate. He's been an executive, consultant, and facilitator within the “Human Potential Movement” since 1972. He founded the Hoffman Institute Foundation in 1998. Raz is also a Hoffman teacher and Chairman of Hoffman International. Raz's passion for teaching the Hoffman Process is both professional and personal. The Process brings him into the depths of human experience where he learns at least as much as he teaches. Raz took the Process in July of 1989. From that experience, he had three major take-aways: “I knew my marriage would last; I could be a great dad to my young children; and that I’d found work worthy of devoting my life.” Raz lives in the San Francisco Bay Area with his wife, Liza. Listen to a solo conversation with Raz on the podcast. As Mentioned in the Episode The Enneagram: Merriam Webster defines the Enneagram as a system of classifying personality types. This system is based on a nine-pointed starlike figure inscribed within a circle.

    S3E22: Eleanor Cyrce – A Brave Adventure Into Play

    27:18

    Eleanor and her grandson Eleanor Cyrce offers us a profound conversation about the nature and benefits of innate play and the journey she undertook to learn to play again. Initially trained as a computer scientist, Eleanor now devotes her life and work to play. This shift wasn't something she was looking for. She wasn't even comfortable playing. But her Spiritual Self found a way to guide Eleanor through this huge life change. Deeply harmed at school by this behavior, Eleanor has always wanted to put an end to bullying, cliques, and people harming each other. She realized she could begin to work with kids to understand how to support them to stay "pure and connected to life."  When she made herself available to them they asked her to play. She had to be willing to let go of any limitation on her part that got in the way. It wasn't an easy journey. Through a deep commitment to learning and changing, Eleanor came to discover that "Play that doesn't harm is actually the giving and receiving of love." Eleanor's life story is one of deep transformation. When life wants us to transform, we find a way to make the 'serious' change feel compelled to make. The Hoffman Process has been a part of the large amount of healing work Eleanor has done to heal her past trauma and transform her life. By doing this, she has broadened the arc of her love's everyday radius. Eleanor Cyrce in Her own words I was born and raised in the South.  As a result of a history of trauma, post-traumatic stress creates limitations that I work continually to surmount so that I can fulfill my dreams.  I remember deciding when I was a pre-teen that my goal in life was to never harm anyone, especially a child or a woman. The healing work I do with children is supported by The Foundation for Compassionate Connection, a non-profit created years ago. I really want to know what these young people need to feel happy, connected, whole. I want to make sure they get it.  Over the years, I donated my time working with the children of Haitian women who were dying from AIDS; with homeless, parentless children in the streets; and with children in the schools, including Magnolia School, Esalen’s Gazebo School, and Full Flower Education Center. I‘m trained in CranioSacral therapy for people and horses. I've also trained in lymphatics, Nonviolent Communication, various types of trauma release, and watsu (Japanese water therapy).  Every day, I am nurtured by the time I spend in nature.  I love swimming long distances in the warm waters of Florida. I love especially spending time near wild horses and manatees. Learn more about Eleanor her work at InnatePlay.org.  The Foundation for Compassionate Connection welcomes donations to help with our work with innate play with children. If you are moved to do so, you can donate here. As mentioned in this episode Innate Play "It is well established now that when we are born, we interact and relate to our world through a "state of being" that is safe, loving, kind, spontaneous, non-competitive, and non-judgmental.  In this state, children feel totally loved and secure and have a sense of belonging to the world. Interacting to others in this state through play is the safest, kindest way of being in the world and what can be called innate play. Unfortunately, at a very young age, children are taught "cultural play" and are deprived of innate play that keeps them whole, healthy, and cooperative. ..." read more at InnatePlay.org   Discover if the Hoffman Process is right for you.

    33:20

    Aimee Song, fashion icon, designer, and influencer, is our guest this week. She shares a powerful story of how she moved from what she calls 'fake' confidence to real confidence. When she was younger, she found that wearing clothes of style made her feel better about herself and helped her feel more confident. Eventually, Aimee began to see that this confidence wasn't sustainable because it wasn't authentic. She realized she had to go within to find the genuine confidence she now knows. The Hoffman Process was pivotal in her journey. Aimee shares a story about one of her patterns, one she discovered at the Process. She found herself envying the transformations she witnessed others having.

    S3E19: Paula & Tim Floyd – Living the Process, Together

    49:57

    Paula and Tim Floyd are both graduates of the Hoffman Process. What's it like to be a couple who've both done the Process? Listen in as Paula and Tim Floyd share their experiences of the Process, and of life together, post-Process. Paula was first to attend the Process about three years ago. When she returned home, Tim saw an immediate shift in Paula's presence and vulnerability. Six months later, Tim did his Process. Now, a few years post-Process, Paula shares that she had no idea that life could be so beautiful. Tim shares how he now connects with his Spiritual Self on a daily basis, a relationship he used to long for when he saw it in others. While their childhood stories are different in many ways, their Process experiences of forgiveness share a similar theme. To experience true forgiveness for their mothers, both Paula and Tim needed to acknowledge and feel the anger they held inside. Once acknowledged, fully felt, and released, the anger became a doorway into deep and abiding forgiveness. Paula and Tim recently moved to Bend Oregon. They live there with daughter Sally, daughter-in-law Mackenzie, and puppy Bean. MORE ABOUT PAULA & TIM FLOYD After her extensive career in the beauty industry, Paula realized she had the formula that would benefit so many companies. She founded Headkount, an outsourced national field organization for beauty brands, inspired by her mentors, employees, colleagues, recruiters, customers, and even her competitors. Headkount is a consumer-driven, cost-effective, and fast way to improve brand awareness, increase brick and mortar sales, and grow at scale. As Headkount CEO, Paula’s favorite part of working in beauty is being in the field, hands-on with her sales team and customers. Paula is bringing her spirituality and influence to the beauty industry. Found out more about Paula here.  Tim grew up middle-class in Belmont CA. When his parents divorced when he was eight, he lived back and forth between Mom’s house to Dad’s house with little supervision. Tim played sports through grade school and high school. Then, realizing he didn’t have the discipline to continue college/ sports at a higher level, he joined the Navy at nineteen. Looking back, he sees the Military as the best thing that could have happened to him. It gave him the structure he was lacking at home. Tim excelled in training and his job as an aircraft mechanic and Naval Flight Engineer. He received multiple awards for carrying out combat missions during the gulf war and other conflicts. Tim and Paula met while Tim was on deployment. Soon after, he began his career in the mortgage business. Tim recently opened a mortgage branch in his new home of Central Oregon for his company. His goals are to help as many people as possible become homeowners. He also returned to civilian flight school and now has his pilot’s license. Follow Tim on Instagram.
