“Nora Hoffmann happens to be one of my first choices when my teaching needs a refreshing new viewpoint. When the complexity of the material gets confusing she can arrive at the essential point with breathtaking ease and rapidity. As a teacher myself for 40 years, when Nora is in the room I am surprised how often I say to the class, “Yeah, like she says!” Nora is personable, funny and compassionate in her teaching as well.” - David Quigley, creator of Alchemical Hypnotherapy.

In Nora's words: "Money Mastery from Within addresses the conflicts underlying clients' relationship to money and one another in regards to money, business, and related topics. Often, when people have come to me for bookkeeping, they expressed the need for help for tracking their financial flow. Mostly there were not only practical and logistical issues, but moreover, there were severe conceptual, emotional, or spiritual issues in the way of successful bookkeeping and money management. Therefore I designed a holistic approach. The offering of Money Coaching and Financial Mediation apply the wisdom of Marshall Rosenberg's 4-step model of Nonviolent Communication and Deborah Price's scientific and compassionate work in Money Coaching in conjunction with the methods of Gestalt therapy and further shamanic and Alchemical approaches."

What people say about "Tea Leaf Reading for Fun and Insight"
"I have now attended two of Nora’s Tea Leaf Reading classes, and found them both to be nothing short of delightful. Both times I discovered that by merely holding a tea cup with someone else’s energy in it in my hand, I could perceive visual and emotional information about that person that I had no way of rationally knowing. It was eye-opening. My favorite part of the readings, though, is looking around the room after about 20 minutes and seeing everyone absorbed in deep conversation about what the leaves are saying. No one ever wants the class to end!” - Mark Fernquest
“I was fortunate to enjoy being a student in Nora Hoffmann's Tea Leaf Reading Class in 2017. She is energetic, creative, intelligent and knowledgeable in her delivery as a teacher of this ancient information. She teaches clearly, effectively, and captures each student's attention as she explains the symbols of the leaves. She gives excellent individual attention to each student as she explores and interprets their tea leaf patterns. It was a fun and interesting class of divination as we focused our gaze onto the hidden mysteries of the tea leaves! You will love being under her tutelage as I did!” - Raven Osborne July 24, 2018
“Tea leaf reading had been an interest of mine for quite some time and while attending a local retreat there was class being offered. I was expecting the course to be lecture style on how to interpret symbols. I was pleasantly surprised by the instructor’s approach; she taught us to learn the subtle differences in heart vibration. The heart energy is brought forth in the cup via the leaves, and then we learned to ask heartfelt questions and sensing the changes in heart vibrations. It was a brilliant way to approach tea leaf reading, and not to mention incredibly effective and loving! The instructor, Ms. Nora Hoffmann, has discovered a beautiful way to teach about the capabilities of the energy each and every one of us has within. I would definitely enjoy more classes with Nora again.” - Melissa Veeneman, Grand Rapids, MI
"I had already experienced Nora’s empowered and empowering communication style, both in conversation and as one of her hypnotherapy/coaching clients. I had also enjoyed the experience of Nora as a highly perceptive and generous teacher as she assisted my own hypnotherapy certification process. She elicits a perfectly nuanced blend of solid technique, possibility consciousness, and acceptance of personal expression. I value curiosity, kindness and authentic expression. Nora met me there and complimented me with integrity, beauty, possibility and humor. Even though I wasn’t initially resonant with the idea of tea-leaf reading, when I heard Nora was the teacher, I was motivated to attend her class. I’m so glad I went!
I was impressed with how Nora held the class with her expertise, kindness, humor, availability and compassion. All the while acquainting and connecting each of us to our own unique intuitive gifts. Within minutes Nora’s gentle, capable leadership and accepting nature had permeated the entire classroom. I received insights, information and confirmation that emerged surprisingly and simply via Nora’s empowering guidance. I also enjoyed watching classmates marvel at how much information was available to them through Nora’s teaching. We quickly became a cohesive group who could easily appreciate each other and the recognition of our own newly fostered gifts.
If you’re on the fence of whether or not to take this class, I encourage you to take advantage of the possibilities that are activated when working in the presence of Nora Hoffmann." - Amy Rink
"Nora’s class on reading tea leaves was so much fun! With Nora’s expert guidance, we discovered that it was not guess work! I invited my skeptical husband to attend and even he was amazed by how it worked! We all drank some lovely tea and once we were done, we discovered that the leaves left inside the cup told a story. How does that happen? We learned about recognizing patterns and were surprised at how much they told us! I came away with the realization that we can trust signs in unusual places if we learn how to read and understand them. It was an unusual and enlightening experience!" – S. Cox
