What is the Hoffman Process?

The Hoffman Process is a seven-day residential course that helps you discover who you really are, freeing you to make conscious choices that will improve your relationships with the people around you. During the Process you will be taught tools and techniques to help you change the old behavioural patterns that are preventing you from feeling fully alive.

It works

The Process has been established for 50 years, in 14 countries, and has benefitted nearly 100,000 people from all walks of life. It is recommended by many medical and health professionals, and has been the subject of scientic research. People come out of the Process with a deep experience of their own resilience, a greater sense of life’s possibilities, and ready to embrace change.

Unequal distribution of wealth in the USA: Wealth in the United States can be summed up pretty easily; you’re either really rich, or really poor.  Since the recession ended back in 2009,  incomes have barely increased, and only the top 5% of earners actually saw those increases. That not only helps widen the income gap, but paints a bleak picture for many employees seeking a raise or advancement at their jobs.

From talking to youth workers in London there are at least six insights that might help us serve young people better in the future, while protecting us against the kind of implosion that brought down Kids Company.

Image result for jeremy corbyn"About Jeremy Corbyn – A rising star

“Jeremy Corbyn’s election in September 2015 as Labour leader, at the age of 66, counted as one of the biggest upsets in British political history.

“His re-election to the post almost a year later was not such a surprise but could prove even more momentous in terms of Labour’s direction in the coming years and the future course of British politics.

“Seeing off the challenge of Owen Smith, who had the backing of the majority of Labour MPs, has made Mr Corbyn, for the time being at least, seemingly unassailable and increased the likelihood that he will lead the opposition into the next general election – scheduled for 2020.”

If you live in the UK, in November/December 2019, then we suggest that you vote Labour.  This is the progressive option!
