Love’s everyday radius is an inspiring collection of conversations with graduates of the Hoffman Process and those impacted by their ripple of change. Our aim is to highlight how the Process enhances reciprocity, gratitude, and responsibility toward the whole. The Hoffman Process is about more than individuals healing themselves. When you change yourself from within, your actions change and you become an integral part of the healing of the world through your own “everyday radius.”

Podcast music: Copper’s Paws by James Hatfield. Sound engineer: Walt Hubis. Podcast hosts: Drew Horning and Sharon Mor.

The Hoffman Process will help you become conscious of and disconnected from negative patterns of thought and behaviors on an emotional, intellectual, physical, and spiritual level in order to make significant positive changes in your life. You will learn to remove habitual ways of thinking and behaving, align with your authentic self, and respond to situations in your life from a place of conscious choice.

    S3E10 Ed McClune - A Good Hoffman Geek Out

    S3E10 Ed McClune - A Good Hoffman Geek Out

    Ed McClune, beloved Hoffman Process teacher and coach since, the '80s, is our guest today. As Ed and Drew share at the end, this conversation is a good Hoffman geek-out.* Even though they geek out over all things Hoffman, Ed's whole Quadrinity* shows up in this one. His love shines through as he speaks about the Process, and about how those who come to do this deeply transformational work are courageous heroes.



    Ed also shares a bit about how the Process now appears in his everyday life. He speaks to the reason he feels we come to this life - to enjoy life in a human body. Ed calls this the sensuality of spirituality. An entire swath of experience has been denied to us because of our patterns; the Process opens us back up to a truly luscious embodied life.

    MORE ABOUT ED

    Ed & Bob



    Ed holds a Master’s degree in counseling psychology from the University of San Francisco and is a licensed marriage and family therapist.



    What Ed likes about teaching the Process is: “Over and over again, through the years of teaching the Hoffman Process, I get to be present as people come into a greater experience of the Light that has always lived ‘far inside’ them.”



    “The summation of all the gifts of the Process comes down to self-love and self-compassion. I don’t need to be different, more refined, or successful to be lovable. The Light is the Light, and Ed is Ed. Falling down isn’t evidence that there’s something wrong with me, only evidence that I’m still alive.”



    Ed is the father of two sons and lives in the San Francisco Bay Area.

    * Quadrinity:  "I coined the word Quadrinity to represent the four aspects of a human being: the Emotional, Intellectual, Physical and Spiritual.

    S3E9 Dan Sterling - I Live in Massive Forgiveness

    S3E9 Dan Sterling - I Live in Massive Forgiveness

    Dan Sterling and his story will open your heart in untold ways. A warm, vulnerable, caring man, Dan grew up in a very conservative family in Alberta, Canada where discipline and life were harsh.



    Two months before Dan came to the Process, he knew he "had a big problem." In his job as a Canadian police officer, Dan was investigating a case that caused him stress. He realized he was having a breakdown - a silent, stoic one. He came to realize he couldn't cry in spite of feeling great distress.



    At the start of the Process, Dan says he, "...almost felt like a pit-bull rescue."



    Note: Dan speaks about the suicide of his friend and the attempted suicide of others. Please call the US National Suicide Prevention Program at 800-273-8255 if you need someone to speak with.

    DAN'S STORY

    Dan's family was directly affected by the 1980s National Energy Program when the Canadian Government (Liberal) nationalized energy resources, causing great harm to the Alberta economy. His father’s service station was not able to stay open. His family was plunged into poverty in a region with few opportunities. Kids picked on Dan in school because they were visibly poor. As a result, he learned to cope by fighting and hanging out with other poor kids.



    Often reminded by his parents that Liberals did this to his family, Dan grew up with disdain for anyone who looked well off because they had a secure public sector job. By the time Dan finished high school, his parents had healed and clawed their way back to some semblance of prosperity. But Dan remained bitter, blaming his parents, treating them poorly, and talking down to them. One day, Dan's father offered him an "olive branch with dollars on it," meaning that the gift was valuable beyond words. Dan couldn't accept it; but, after the Process, he found "massive forgiveness."



    While at university, Dan joined the army reserve. After completing his degree and while waiting to become a police officer, he went into the army full time. Dan left the military in 2006 and in 2007, started his career as a police officer in the north. After twelve years of busy police work as a frontline investigator, he now serves as a plainclothes investigator, starting three months after attending the Process in August 2019.

    "...And I loved deeper, And I spoke sweeter, And I gave forgiveness I'd been denying"

    S3E8 Julie Faupel - Healing the Fear of Unlovability

    S3E8 Julie Faupel - Healing the Fear of Unlovability

    Hoffman grad, Julie Faupel, the founder of REALM, a technology platform in luxury real estate, is delightful, warm, and open. Julie came to the Hoffman Process to heal her fear that there was something terribly wrong with her. As a member of YPO, she discovered many other YPO members had also completed the Process so she thought she'd give it a try. But, Julie really wasn't sure what she was getting into. Her biggest fear was that she'd have to share her feelings and deepest secret with everyone else - her fear of unlovability.



    Once at the Process, Julie experienced a huge revelation. She shares: "I have wasted so much time dying for people to love me and they don't even know me." The grief of this made her feel physically sick. She realized that all the things she was doing to keep herself safe were really only keeping her small. The healing of this very human fear of unlovability is one of the profound outcomes of doing the Hoffman Process.



    After both Julie and her husband completed the Process, they hosted a reunion to bring their two Process classes together. Years later, they are still hosting this reunion. It has grown to include many other Process graduates who want the Hoffman connection. For someone who never felt she belonged, Julie now celebrates the "incredible fraternity of people" she calls her Hoffman family.

    S3E7 Jon Hurry - How to Trust Love

    Meet Jon Hurry. Jon's story is moving. His story of recovery and healing is captivating. His willingness to be vulnerable is inspiring.



    Jon's story is one of loss and heartache, but also perseverance and resiliency. He admits he has had a lot of loss but he also reminds us that his life is a normal one, too - a different normal. Jon's desired outcome from the Process was to trust in his wife's love for him. During his Process, Jon came to see he is, indeed, loveable, and in seeing this he finally felt trust in his wife's love for him.



    Jon had already done a great deal of work to heal the pain of his past and the habits he'd acquired to deal with that pain when he arrived at the Hoffman Process. After the Process, he now says, "Rehab was a necessity. EMDR was phenomenal. The Hoffman's [Process] definitely the cherry on the top. It really helped me to build up my confidence and see the good that I've done and the good things in my life."



    Both Jon and his wife have done the Process. A few months after Jon's Process, they participated in the Hoffman Couple's Retreat.

    S3E5 Eboni K. Williams - Spirit of Disruption

    S3E5 Eboni K. Williams - Spirit of Disruption

    Eboni K. Williams talks about the spirit of disruption in this week's episode. Her work disrupts long and deeply seeded cultural norms and expectations. She shares with us how rewarding her work is as disruption is an essential part of change and change is constant. And yet, she also speaks of how heavy her work can be. "...people, we, don't like change and aren't comfortable around disruption."



    Eboni came to the Process because she, "wanted family more than I was afraid of doing the work that it would take to get there." She shares about her own Process and how her teacher, Regina Louise, was able to help her breakthrough her resistance that showed up at the very first assignment on the first day of her Process.



    As Hoffman grads, we know change is vital to personal transformation. The Process itself is disruptive. The Process takes us out of our comfort zone and disrupts patterns. It opens us to the pain of our past so we can heal that same pain.

    Eboni is unapologetically driven to give voice to the voiceless through her platform - a tapestry of television, law, social justice, and entertainment. She knows her presence is power in the rooms where she has often been the first and only Black person. Positioned for disruption, Eboni enters these opportunities representing Black excellence intent on demonstrating and inspiring what is possible for Black people in America.

    Eboni is the newest and first Black cast member on Bravo’s The Real Housewives of New York. She's also excited about her new iHeart Media podcast on the intersection of law and pop culture,  Holding Court with Eboni K. Williams. Uppity Productions, Eboni's production company, produces the podcast.

Such variety

Everyone gets something different out of the process and their stories help deepen my appreciation for the vulnerability and courage the process takes.

Learn, grow

I was fortunate enough to attend the Hoffman Institute a few years ago. The work I did changed my life for the better in so many ways. I love this podcast because it reinforces all of the positive things I learned during the process while continuing the journey by hearing about the transformations of others. Drew is an engaging and intelligent interviewer and all of the guests have been such interesting people. I think both Hoffman grads non grads will enjoy listening.

Great content but one thing to mention!

The title of all your shows are the names of the people you talk to. When someone is coming to your podcast to see what it is all about, we don’t know these people, and seeing their name doesn’t make us want to necessarily listen to your show. If you were to instead title your show with what your listener will learn, I bet the listener rate will go up. And therefore, more people will be familiar with who you are talking to :)
