Radical Honesty advanced weekend in Helsinki, Finland | 20-22 November 2020
€310.00 – €380.00
Radical Honesty Advanced Weekend Workshop
20-22 November 2020
The workshop will led by Radical Honesty certified trainers, Tuulia Syvänen and Pete Jordan.
This Advanced Weekend Workshop 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
- you 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 movement, 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.
The training will be conducted in English.
The workshop leaders will be certified Radical Honesty certified trainers—and married couple—Tuulia Syvänen and Pete Jordan.
The early bird price—available until 15 October 2020—is €340. The regular price thereafter is €380. The fee covers the workshop and snacks.

You are warmly welcome to join the exciting journey of Radical Honesty!

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. She has led around 100 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 18-year-old son.
Pete Jordan is the only certified Radical Honesty trainer in the Benelux countries as well as a Somatic Experiencing Practitioner. He organizes and co-lead Radical Honesty workshops around Europe with his wife, Tuulia. He also leads clients in Somatic Experiencing sessions to help support them in healing their traumas.
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. 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.)
