Radical Honesty retreat in the lovely Dutch countryside Gelderland, Netherlands
During this Radical Honesty retreat in Gelderland, we’ll spend four days and four nights together in a lovely big farm house tuned into retreat center in the countryside. The retreat will include daily workshop sessions as well as free time for walking in the nature or hanging out with others.
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:
- 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 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.
The training will be conducted in English.
The retreat will begin on Monday at 18:00 and will conclude on Friday by 10:00 am.
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 residential Radical Honesty workshops.
The workshop leaders will be certified Radical Honesty Trainers—and married couple—Tuulia Syvänen and Pete Jordan.
The early bird price—available until 15 October 2010—is €680. The regular price thereafter is €720. The fee covers the workshop, healthy vegetarian / vegan meals and snacks, teaching, shared room accommodation and ongoing support of the group to live out loud.

What past participants have said about our workshops and retreats:
“I learned how to express my anger and hear other people’s anger for the first time in my life. I experienced how just being myself is the best way to connect to people. I felt relief and happiness in a way I had not experienced before. Throughout the entire retreat, I felt very safe and guided.” – Jakob, Germany
“Came back from my second Radical Honesty retreat on Monday, and feeling grateful and happy of all the sharing and connection. It feels so wonderful to see the remarkable steps so many people are taking in their lives, and I feel again encouraged, empowered and inspired to take a few new steps in my own life too, to feel more alive, free and connected with people.” – Anne
“This was the most intensive and surprising workshop I have ever attended in my life. There was always a safe place to express myself, to listen to others, to grow, to get out of my comfort zone. And I have met people who are as weird and normal as I am. And that—together with the ever-present honesty and openness, vulnerability and the will to overcome one’s own unhelpful stories—has led to an insanely strong bond. Thank you Tuulia and Pete for your high presence, the appreciative frame, the humor and the lightness despite the often difficult topics! I’ll be back.” – Micha, Germany
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.
