Radical Honesty workshop in Kissos, Greece, 14-21 July
Join Radical Honesty Trainer Tuulia Syvanen for a week at the Kalikalos holistic community in Kissos, Greece for a week that is part workshop and part vacation!
Before breakfast, we’ll do an optional session of simple yoga and meditation. After breakfast, from 09:30 till 13:30, we’ll do our Radical Honesty work together in our group session. Then we’ll break for lunch.
After lunch, we’ll be free to hike, lay on the beach, swim in the sea, laze around Kissos, lounge in the hammocks, talk amongst ourselves, etc. Then we’ll garden, cook and eat dinner together.
In the evenings after dinner, we can talk, dance, sing, drink, play and hang out. We can practice Radical Honesty and converse about how we can live our lives in love and in contribution to others.
Set on a lovely hillside overlooking the Aegean Sea, Kissos is a village of fruit trees, flowers and greenery, carved out of the forest above the seaside. Kissos is about 35 km/25 miles (an hour’s drive) from the port city of Volos, Greece’s 6th largest city. Sitting at an altitude of 515 meters (1600 ft), Kissos evades the summer’s extreme heat, staying comfortably warm even in July. The village is notable for its 17th Century ornate Greek Orthodox church and its fine taverna, which specializes in regional dishes and will be the site of our end-of-our-week celebratory dinner.

Tuulia Syvänen is one of the few certified Radical Honesty trainers practicing in Europe. She leads Radical Honesty workshops and does 1:1 and couples coaching throughout Europe. 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 and RH Master Trainer Taber Shadburne. She has led more than 15 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 14-year-old son.
Here is what some folks say about the trainer:
“If you do a workshop with Tuulia, it’ll change your life.” –Dr. Brad Blanton, the founder of Radical Honesty
“I went to my first Radical Honesty workshop with Tuulia in October 2015. I can honestly say it impacted my life tremendously. During the workshop, I saw my patterns and learned a lot from honest feedback of others. It gave me a mirror to see myself through the eyes of others, something that I had never experienced before. Literally eye opening! Within a year I went from totally breakdown crying all day long to a radiant, super confident, happy woman who knows what she wants and how to make it happen. I haven’t felt better in 15 years and my energy levels and stamina are still growing every day.” –Marja
“I learned how to express my anger and hear other people’s anger for the first time in my life. The self-image I had created about me being a shy and introverted guy got a lot cracks. 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 by Tuulia’s compassion and wisdom.” –Jakob
