Radical Honesty Weekend Workshop Amsterdam
23-25 February 2024
Workshop led by Certified Trainers, Tuulia Syvänen and Pete Jordan. They are assisted by Trainer candidate.
A workshop about Living Out Loud, Being Happy, Getting over Shit and Living in the Present
Radical Honesty is about living in the Here and Now. It is a communication tool and lifestyle, which leads you to connect more deeply with others by expressing our fear, anger, appreciation and whatever is arising in the moment.
Content of the training:
This workshop includes lectures, directed conversations, paired exercises, small group exercises, hot seat work, meditation and much more to help you learn how to relax into intimacy based on being open and honest. All this is geared toward having you learn and practice the distinction between thinking and noticing; the difference between interpreting reality and actually noticing it through direct experience.
Then you learn to share what we notice about the reality of your own experience with others, and have it be the basis for true intimacy—learning to love being and love other beings. In this workshop, you can express yourself by laughing, shouting, crying, smiling, sharing and by asking for what you want.
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
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.
The workshop is non-residential and will take place in Amsterdam.

“The best part of the workshop was a fluffy warm feeling of acceptance and being seen.” – Tiia, Finland
“Radical Honesty gives you the keys to real intimacy with other people. I feel more alive when I have attended Radical Honesty workshops. I would recommend this to anyone who wants to find true love and happiness!” – Riina, Finland
“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.
