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 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.
