Description

The 3rd annual Life Purpose workshop – a retreat in a beautiful villa near the sea!

Radical Honesty Retreat in the seaside town of Zandvoort, Holland

13-16 December 2018



We’ll spend much of four days and three nights together in the lovely seaside town of Zandvoort (30 minutes from Amsterdam by train). The workshop will take place in a cozy villa decorated in Mediterranean style and colors. This residential retreat is suitable for both beginners to Radical Honesty as well for experienced Radical Honesty practitioners. During the retreat we will create our Life Purpose statements (or update/revise our existing ones).

The group is limited to 16 participants.


Transform Your Life by Telling the Truth

Radical Honesty is about living in the Here and Now. It is a communication tool and lifestyle, which leads you to connect more deeply with others by expressing our fear, anger, appreciation and whatever is arising in the moment.

Content of the training

In addition to crafting our Life Purpose statements, this workshop will include lectures, directed conversations, paired exercises, small group exercises, hot seat work, meditation and much more to help you learn how to relax into intimacy based on being open and honest. All this is geared toward having you learn and practice the distinction between thinking and noticing; the difference between interpreting reality and actually noticing it through direct experience. Then you learn to share what we notice about the reality of our own experience with others, and have it be the basis for true intimacy—learning to love being and love other beings. In this workshop, you can express yourself by laughing, shouting, crying, smiling, sharing and by asking for what you want.



This workshop is for you if:

  • you want to practice radical honesty in your everyday life

  • you want to express anger, fear, worry and sadness with all people in your life and hear them express their feelings and experiences

  • you want to experience more freedom in your life

  • you desire to learn the art of asking for what you want

  • want to heal your relationships and find forgiveness

  • you yearn deeper love, connection & intimacy with your close ones


A workshop on How to Live, Love, Laugh & Be Happy & Completely Ruin Life as You Know It



Radical Honesty is direct communication that leads to intimacy. It’s the difference between making a performance and laughing and playing with friends. Honesty is kind of scary fun that turns out better than you thought it would. Lying is work and a pain in the ass and makes you lonesome as hell.


We claim that lying is the major source of all human stress. It wears us out and eventually kills us. When people engage honestly, energy that was wasted maintaining a performance to make an impression is suddenly available for real creativity in playing together. When we admit our pretences we can refresh our relationships and powerfully create new ways of living together. That is the not so secret of Radical Honesty.


Schedule

The retreat will begin on
Thursday 13 December at 17:00 and will conclude on Sunday 16 December by 17:00.


Extra night

If you wish to remain at the villa after the workshop ends and sleep there on the night of Sunday 16 December, you can do so by paying an extra €32.50.

Community

Participants will be asked to assist in the cooking, serving and cleaning up of meals/snacks as a way to help create a community during our four days together. This is commonly done in residential Radical Honesty workshops.

About the trainers

Tuulia Syvänen is the certified Radical Honesty trainer who has led the most RH workshops in Europe. She also does 1:1 and couples coaching. For two decades, she held leadership positions at international, non-profit organizations that are concerned with social and environmental justice issues. A native of Finland, she has lived in Germany, The Netherlands, New Zealand and Canada.



Having grown up in a dysfunctional family—where difficulties and negative feelings were often swept under the rug—Tuulia became passionate about self-expression and self-awareness, and learned the importance of setting one’s boundaries. Most important, she learned the power of honesty. Her life’s mission is to help create more love and connection between people through honest sharing.


Tuulia participated in her first Radical Honesty training in 2012 with the founder of Radical Honesty Dr. Brad Blanton and continued her training under the guidance of Dr. Blanton and RH Master Trainer Taber Shadburne. She has led more than 25 RH workshops in various European countries. She has also attained a four-year certification in the Human-to-Human Coaching and Therapy Program in Finland and is a certified leader of Dr. Fischer’s Rebuilding Divorce Seminars. She earned a BA in Journalism from the University of Tampere and has a 15-year-old son.


Pete Jordan is the only certified Radical Honesty trainer in the Benelux countries. He organizes and co-leads Radical Honesty workshops around Europe with his wife, Tuulia.



Pete has changed his life for the better by committing to live honestly, expressing his resentments and appreciations in the moment and by asking for what he wants. A major breakthrough for him was to have honest talks with his ex-wife and four siblings. He has broken the traditions of his childhood’s family and began to talk about things he was afraid of and embarrassed about and what didn't like in his childhood.

Pete has great listening skills and he is keen on developing and learning every day. His vision is to support others to live happier, freer lives. Born and raised in San Francisco, Pete has lived in Amsterdam for the past 16 years and still makes himself happy each day he wakes up in that city. A writer by profession, Pete has a passion for cycling and has contributed his writing and photographs to several Dutch cycling publications for more than a decade. He is following a three-year training to become a Somatic Experiencing practitioner. When he’s not organizing or attending Radical Honesty workshops or spending time with his 12-year old son, he can be found meandering around Amsterdam on his bike. (And he feels some tightness in his stomach now as he writes this stuff about himself in the third person.)
