More on Radical Honesty
RADICAL HONESTY LIVE: Workshops on How to Live, Love, Laugh, Be Happy &
Radical Honesty is a direct communication that leads to intimacy. It is the difference between making a performance and laughing and playing with friends. Honesty is a kind of scary fun that turns out better than you thought it would once you start practicing it. Lying is work and 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 a good impression is suddenly available for real creativity in play together. When we admit our pretenses, we can refresh our relationships and powerfully create new ways of living together.
What We Do
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.
