An intensive Radical Honesty retreat in lakeside cabins surrounded by pine forests
Transform Your Life by Telling the Truth
Radical Honesty Advanced Retreat in Finland (10-14 August 2022)
During this Radical Honesty Advanced Retreat in Finland, we’ll spend five days and four nights together in Finnish lakeside cottages, surrounded by a lush pine forest beside a lake. The retreat will include daily workshop sessions as well as free time for mushroom and berry picking, swimming, boating and nightly Finnish saunas.
This retreat is intended for participants who have already previously attended at least one other Radical Honesty workshop. The intention is that, with everyone present already familiar with the practices, process and language of RH, we hope to dive even deeper with our work right from the get go.
Our goals will be to live out loud, to be happy and to not give a shit! Radical Honesty is a way to create connections and to stay present to our experience and bodily sensations.
This workshop is for you if
- you want to experience more freedom in your life
- you want to let go of shame, fear and attachment to approval
- you are looking for using conflict creatively and want to go beyond blame
- 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
The workshop is not for you if you
- don’t want to tell the truth
- want to stay in your comfort zone at all times
- don’t want to hear participants expressing themselves loudly at times
- participate to change others in your life rather than yourself
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 is 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 pretenses we can refresh our relationships and powerfully create new ways of living together. That is the not so secret of Radical Honesty.
What we do
On each day, we’ll do some yoga, meditation and workshop sessions. The sessions will include an introduction to Radical Honesty; a deeper dive into RH; and learning through theory, discussions, sharing and exercises on how to be radically honest. We’ll do group and paired exercises as well as hot seat work.
We will also have free time for connecting, relaxing, swimming, walking in the forest, berry and mushroom picking, rowing a boat, hammock lounging, fishing and appreciating nature in the Finnish summer.
The training will be conducted in English. Finnish speakers will have the opportunity to do paired exercises together in Finnish.
The retreat will begin on Wednesday 10 August at 17:00 and will conclude on Sunday 14 August by 13:00.
Via air from outside Finland: fly to Helsinki airport and then take a two-hour train ride to Tampere. (There are also a limited number of flights that also fly in directly to Tampere airport.) From Tampere, we will direct you the rest of the way to the lake (probably via a local bus).
From within Finland, take a train to Tampere. From there, we will direct you the rest of the way to the lake (probably via a local bus). Or you can drive to the retreat site though if you do, we will probably ask you to carpool with others.
You can buy the train tickets via this website https://www.vr.fi/en/
When you a week before you will get the ticket about 5-6 euros cheaper.
We recommend travelling via land. If you choose to fly, we propose you compensate for your CO2 emissions.
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 five days together. This is commonly done in longer Radical Honesty workshops (and to help get shit done).
The workshop leaders will be certified Radical Honesty Trainers—and married couple—Tuulia Syvänen and Pete Jordan.

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.
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. Read more.
Pete Jordan is the only certified Radical Honesty trainer in the Benelux countries. He organizes and co-lead 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. Read more.
