Hoffman French Retreat
with Matthew and Emma Pruen 

Are looking to connect to the life your spiritual self is calling for; to get more out of life by doing less or to find your own inner magic? Have found that your acts of spiritual initiative such as to get fit, write your novel or launch that brilliant business idea have been accompanied by resistance? Then this course is for you. 


Led by Supervising Hoffman Teacher Matthew Pruen and Self-Esteem Mentor and Shamanic Practitioner Emma Pruen, you will have the opportunity to work though your resistance, deepen your connection to your spiritual self, gain inner confidence and build the community to help keep you on the ‘right road’.
