Radical Honesty Easter Retreat in Inkoo archipelago Finland | 1-4 April 2021
€430.00 incl. VAT 21%
We are very excited to present for the first time: a Radical Honesty retreat in the Finnish archipelago!
Easter retreat: Transform Your Life by Telling the Truth
We have dreamed of leading a retreat by the sea in the beautiful Finnish archipelago and have now found a lovely space at a charming hundred-year-old schoolhouse lovingly turned into a retreat center. This place has a lot of character!
During our Radical Honesty Easter Retreat in Finland, we’ll spend four days and three nights together on an island in the Finnish archipelago, surrounded by sea and pine and evergreen forests.
The retreat will include daily workshop sessions as well as free time for hanging out, exploring the striking Bärosund Island forests and seaside, sweating in the sauna and swimming in the chilly sea (if that’s your thing).
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 are up for a unique experience in Finnish archipelago
- 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 conscious movement or 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 seaside and the forest, and appreciating the Finnish nature in springtime.
The training will be conducted in English. Finnish speakers will have the opportunity to do paired exercises together in Finnish. Some translations can also be provided from Finnish to English, we don’t want language skills to be a barrier for joining.
The retreat will begin on Thursday 1 April at 16:00 and will conclude on Sunday 4 April by 17:00. Kindly arrive between 13:00 and 15:00 on 1 April.
The workshop leaders are certified Radical Honesty Trainers—and married couple—Tuulia Syvänen and Pete Jordan.
The venue is a beautiful old schoolhouse lovingly renovated on Bärösund Island in the Inkoo archipelago, about 70 km west of Helsinki and about 88 km from the Helsinki airport.
We will have available to us a spacious workshop room overlooking the sea. The seaside and the forest are just a two-minute walk away. You can also stroll on the island’s quiet rural roads or through a forest to a nearby lake on the island.
You can reach the villa by car or carpool with others driving to the island.
You can also travel by train to Karjaa or by bus to Inkoo, and from there take a private or shared taxi with others to the Bärösund ferry. The ferry is free and takes about two minutes.
The early bird price for the workshop sessions—available until 28 February 2021—is €390. The regular price thereafter is €430.
That fee covers the workshop sessions, teaching and ongoing support to live out loud as well as coffee, tea and snacks.
Please note that the lodging and food is paid separately in cash upon arrival to the retreat space.
The price for the meals during the retreat is €135 (including VAT), this covers a vegetarian breakfast, lunch and dinner.
The price for the lodging (in two or three-person shared rooms) for three nights is €120 (including VAT).
The lodging happens in two or three person rooms.
Morning sauna will be available and possibility to dip into cold sea. Kindly bring your own sheets and towels or rent them at the retreat space (€15).

Who are 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 more around 100 RH workshops in various European countries. 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 a 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. 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.)
