Have you ever found yourself repeating the same negative patterns in life, caught in a perpetual cycle of frustration and confusion, left without a clue as to how you end up in the same painful situations again and again?

Perhaps you've had some persistent issues that were challenging enough to get you into therapy or counseling at some point. Maybe you read a few self-help books. You found yourself able to pinpoint, at least to some degree- the origins of your mental and emotional dysfunction. You might have even figured out that most of your destructive behavior has manifested at least to some degree as a result of trauma, neglect, or abuse you endured as a child. Most of the clues probably led back to your parents’ shortcomings as incompetent early 'life coaches.’ You learn a bit about yourself, and your subconscious motives and egoic drives. You have a few breakthroughs. You get to the root of your problems. But do you ever really CHANGE? Have you ever been able to entirely break free from your 'old' self, and become a genuinely new person as a result of your inner work? 

For most of us, myself included, many hours in therapy and self-help study might have resulted in some temporary emotional symptom relief, but for the most part, we pretty much stay the same in the long run, barring some hugely monumental sea change shift, usually brought about by some radical transformative event. 

Well in July 2017 I had such an event. It was a week-long intensive retreat held in Napa, California known as The Hoffman Process. I enrolled, drove up north, and committed to myself that no matter what, I was going to give every ounce of courage and willingness to this somewhat mysterious group experience in the redwoods. I had no idea that I was about to undergo such a profound self-renovation. 

The Hoffman Process was one of the most profound experiences of my life, which is why I made it my mission after completing the program to share it with you. 

What you are about to experience is an in-depth exploration of the process, and my time there with their international director, Tim Laurence. We thoroughly unpack how The Hoffman Process combines different spiritual and psychological modalities into one life-changing intensive, its origins, and why the heck it’s so damn effective in producing lasting change.  

By the end of this show, you will no doubt have a much deeper understanding of what your negative patterns are, how you got them, and most important of all- how to rid yourself of them.

Please share this episode with someone who could use some help breaking free from the bondage of their past.

Here's to your mental health,

Luke
