Honesty Gathering in Spitzmuehle near Berlin, Germany | 9-13 June 2021
€440.00 – €490.00 incl. VAT 21%
Honesty Europe proudly presents:
For the second time – an honesty community gathering in Europe!
Honesty Gathering in Germany
9-13 June 2021
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.
Now, we will gather again, this time in Spitzmuehle by a lovely lake near Berlin!
We have a beautiful and very special location for our Gathering: 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 want to be in a workshop setting where the sessions are optional?
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?
We see this Gathering of our tribe as a cross between a retreat and a festival. Various sessions will run concurrently from morning till evening. You can choose which sessions you want to attend, organize your own session, request a session you want or skip the sessions and just hang out with like-minded people.
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.
The Gathering 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 silent and dense green forest
- One lake right in front of the garden, another lake a 10-minute walk away

Tuulia, Pete, Anna, Jakob, Michael, Jura and Chelsea
Who are the trainers?
Tuulia Syvänen 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 18-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, 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.)
I’m a Radical Honesty Trainer and Somatic Coach from Berlin. I came across Radical Honesty in 2016, did the Trainers Training in June 2018 and am a certified Trainer since November 2019.
Besides that I have a masters degree related to environmental/sustainability topics and many years of working experience in the film and cartoon industry. By adding this I imagine I want you to see me as a diverse person and possibly also find more ways to relate to me.
In workshops and coaching sessions, I accompany people into noticing and being with all that is, showing themselves as they are, asking for what they want, and composting their unresolved business from the past so they can grow something new out of it.
I used to think that I have to somehow give myself up to be able to create connection. In contact with other people I adapted to them. I did it to such an extent that when I happened to be around two or more people who I would normally meet alone, I didn’t know who I was anymore or how to act.
And I used to spend a lot of energy on trying to avoid situations in which I or someone else could eventually feel embarrassed and by that stopped myself from a lot of things I would have actually liked to do.
I’m happy and excited to be more and more open and outspoken about what’s really going on with me, to ask for what I want and to allow and experience all that arises when I do so. I enjoy the intensity of my sensations and keep being amazed how fast they ebb away when I don’t resist them. Practicing Radical Honesty I’m feeling more alive and much more in touch with myself as well as with others. And I love to inspire people to join me on this journey!
Jūra is a trauma-informed Radical Honesty trainer, workshop leader and personal coach in honesty, intimacy, and sexuality.

Michael leads transformative evenings, seminars and retreats for honesty, embodiment and intimacy. He offers special coaching for relationships and intimacy. He is a certified Radical Honesty Trainer, Forrest™ Yoga teacher. He was working several years with Somatic Coaching and as a tantric massage therapist. At the moment he is in training to become a Gestalt practitioner.
He creates safe spaces for deep honesty, mindful touch and deep intimacy – to experience more self-confidence, self-love and self-responsibility.
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.
“I’ve been certified as a RH-Trainer in June 2018 by Brad Blanton and have led 25+ longer form workshops/retreats since then.
I used Radical Honesty to dramatically change and improve my life. In the last couple of years I supported hundreds of brave people to change their lives, too.
As a recovering porn addict and compulsive Nice Guy I feel very passionate to support young men in finding their stance in life and redefining their self-image. I do that through coaching, men’s work and by just being myself.
I dream big and I take big action … and I love to support others in doing the same.”
