It’s a powerful and pivotal experience in the Process week. This kind of release supports us in acknowledging, expressing, and transforming strong emotions which may have previously been denied. Expressing emotions like anger or disappointment in this way, we release them from the body. We use the body and our voice to express what we no longer want to hold within us. The more deeply we move into expression, the more space we clear. This creates room to experience forgiveness and compassion. Release work also allows us to feel calm and be able to deal with situations in a  manner. It can stop us from taking our ‘stuff’ out on others, too! In so doing, we claim our power and freedom.

    S3E30: Lisa Wenger – The Sparkle in the Eyes

    38:04

    Beloved Hoffman teacher and coach, Lisa Wenger, is our guest this week. Lisa has been a part of the Hoffman world since 1989 when she did the Process in Austria. What brought Lisa to the Process? Her brother had taken the Process and afterward, Lisa saw that he sparkle in his eyes. Lisa realized that she wanted that same sparkle back. After her Process, she knew her sparkle had returned because she could feel it in her Being. While in the middle of her Process, Lisa realized she wanted to start a Hoffman center in Italy. Once she completed that, Lisa realized she wanted to teach the Process. She feels very fortunate to have trained directly with Bob Hoffman. Listen in as she shares stories of the early days of the Hoffman Process in Europe. More About Lisa Wenger Born as the middle child between two brothers, Lisa grew up in an intellectually active family where the psychoanalyst C.G.Jung was like an "invisible" presence. Psychology was often a topic of conversation. She rebelled (silently...) and went off to live in Italy to work in fashion. Lisa took the Hoffman Process in 1989. Immediately during her Process, she felt driven to make it available in Italy. With the support of Bob Hoffman, she created the Italian Hoffman Institute and staged the first process in August 1990 where Bob was teaching. She then trained to become a Hoffman Teacher. She trained partly with Bob Hoffman, and also attended processes in Germany, Austria, Switzerland, and France. Lisa spent ten years serving as the Director. She left the Italian Institute in the good hands of her brother and sister-in-law in order to dedicate herself to teaching and supervising more internationally - in the aforementioned countries as well as the UK, Ireland, Canada, the US. Vienna, Aug '90, 1st Intl. Hoffman Congress. Lisa (far L), Bob (front 4th from L), Raz (top far R), Kani Comstock, Barbara Comstock, Michael Wenger, Béatrice Haab. Aug '90: 1st Process in Italy.

Méret was a Swiss Surrealist artist and photographer. She has been recognized as a figure of the women's movement. In 1982, Méret Oppenheim won the Berlin Art Prize. In 2019, the city of Basel inaugurated a plaza, road, fountain, and a high-rise apartment building in the city center, all named after her. The large fountain features her sculpture Spirale (der Gang der Natur). Recently in 2018, Oppenheim was the subject of a short documentary, Gloria's Call.

    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. As mentioned in the episode The Hoffman App Your journey to discover your authentic self does not end after the completion of a Hoffman course. Rather, it is just the beginning. The Hoffman App is here to support you as you continue this journey, today and far into the future. The app is full of guidance, practices, and visualizations to inspire and help you achieve your personal goals.

    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.

    S3E25: Hilary Illick – Accepting Our Imperfection

    26:16

    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. Hilary received her BA in Philosophy from Stanford University. Her MFA in creative writing is from San Francisco State University (SFSU). Hilary trained as a life coach through Coaches Training Institute (CTI). She is certified through the International Coach Federation (ICF). As Mentioned in the Episode The off-broadway play Hilary co-wrote: Venus De Minivan -> EVE-olution From Hilary's site: "This two-woman play was originally entitled Venus De Minivan, starring the authors themselves, Illick and Krier, in Cambridge, MA. Performed for sold-out audiences, Venus De Minivan was 100% autobiographical. Published by DPS as “EVE-olution,” the play appeared off-Broadway at The Cherry Lane Theater.  Illick and Krier made an appearance on NBC’s Today Show airing of 'Come Back Moms.'” You can purchase the published play in paperback here.
