More on Radical Honesty
RADICAL HONESTY LIVE: Workshops 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.
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
The principles outlined in Radical Honesty: How to Transform Your Life by Telling the Truth, are presented in a planned experiential sequence. So the workshop gives you a series of learnings that stack on each other. We call these plays… as in a playbook for a football game. They include lectures, directed conversations, paired exercises, small group exercises, Radical Honesty hot seat work, meditation and more. All this is geared toward having you learn and practice the distinction between noticing and thinking; the difference between interpreting and thinking about reality, and actually noticing it, through direct experience. Then you learn to share what you notice about the reality of your own experience with others, as the basis for true intimacy—learning to love ourselves and love other beings by learning to love Being, itself.
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
