David Pasqualone / George Hofmann

In this powerful episode of the Remarkable People Podcast, author, speaker, and genuinely great guy George Hofmann shares with us his journey of overcoming mental illness, bipolar type 1 disorder, and anxiety. His story is not only remarkable, but insightful, helpful, and eye opening.

Listen or watch this episode of the Remarkable People Podcast to see how George has managed his mental illness successfully for over 20 years, has been able to lead a full and "normal life" (wife, daughter, career, dogs, etc.), and how you can live well too!

GUEST BIO:Β 

After a series of hospitalizations and a lot of bad behavior, George Hofmann managed to overcome the worst of bipolar disorder by adding practices in focused attention to the usual therapies of medicine and talk. He teaches others with anxiety, depression and bipolar disorder how to do the same. He maintains the site "Practicing Mental Illness," which promotes meditation, movement and meaningful work as keys to growth and healing. George lives in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania with his wife, their daughter and two poorly behaved dogs.
