Yes! We are meeting again with the tribe in lovely Spitzmuehle by a lake.

Honesty Europe proudly presents: For the third time – Honesty Gathering in Europe!

Honesty Gathering in Germany

12 – 16 September 2022

Over the past few years, we have dreamed about bringing together people who are part of our honesty community and in September 2019, we—Tuulia, Pete and the team—managed to make that happen in Damouchari, Greece and last year Spitzmuehle Germany.

Now, we will come together again in Spitzmuehle by a lovely lake near Berlin!

We have a beautiful and very special location for our training: the well-known retreat center located in a rural area near Berlin.


Maybe you have already attended several of our workshops and want more time and opportunities to meet others, hang out and practice together?

Do you want to meet again some of those lovely people from your retreat, your 8-day Intensive or weekend workshop?

Do you really like the way of expressing yourself honestly and openly and want to make more honest friends?

Have you heard about this from friends or family and are curious to join the weirdos?

Are you up for some amazing days in nature and by a lake?

Various sessions will run concurrently from morning till evening. You can choose which sessions you want to attend, organize your own session, or request a session you want.

This event is a communications training offering vital communication and relating skills you will benefit from in your work life and also at home.

The sessions include various group and paired exercises, hot seat work, introductions for newcomers, connection playground, sharing circles, asking for what you want practice, work on shame, sexuality, inner child and other topics arising, German-language sessions, movement, tantra / conscious touch, yoga, seated and walking meditation, and (if there’s enough interest) a couples session.

This event will take place at the famous Spitzmühle, an exclusive venue near Berlin, surrounded by lively nature, peaceful silence and a crystal-clear swimming lake. The Spitzmühle is a former forest hotel that has been converted into a unique seminar location, with plenty of space and attention to detail. 

  • Large garden with old trees and lots of beautiful corners.
  • A sauna and a wood-fired hot tub beside the lake
  • Boats and surfboards for paddling
  • Surrounded by dense green forest
  • One lake right in front of the garden, another lake a 10-minute walk away

Who are the trainers?

Tuulia Syvänen
Tuulia is the certified Radical Honesty trainer who has led the most RH workshops in Europe, around 100. 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 him ever since. She has also attained a four-year certification in the Human-to-Human 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 an adult son.

Pete Jordan

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, as well as does 1:1 coaching.

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 he 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 almost two decades 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 in the midst of following a three-year training to become a Somatic Experiencing practitioner. When he is not organizing or attending Radical Honesty workshops or spending time with his teenaged 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.)

He is a certified Radical Honesty Trainer, Forrest™ Yoga teacher. He was working several years with Somatic Coaching and as a tantric massage therapist.

He leads with a lot of heart and simple directness and shows himself to be completely honest and transparent.

His work is based on Radical Honesty, mindfulness training, body awareness and mindful touch. His passion is to lead people more into their own responsibility, more into feeling, into their heart, their liveliness, their sensuality and playfulness and to come into better contact with their intuition and deep body wisdom. A special focus in his work is on experiencing deep intimacy and connectedness, discarding limitations and patterns, showing oneself honestly and authentically and daring to live and love intensely.
