This is a newly offered advanced workshop, created and led by Brad Blanton and Taber Shadburne!
The workshop is for participants who have previously attended a Radical Honesty 8-Day Workshop. It’s ideal for people who would like to deepen their practice and spend more workshop time on processing and hot seat work.
For those who are interested in the possibility of becoming a Certified Radical Honesty Trainer, this workshop is an optimal opportunity for learning and practicing.
An Invitation from Radical Honesty Master Trainer, Taber Shadburne
If you've already done a Radical Honesty 8-Day workshop and realized that you want to take the practice deeper, make it a way of life, and maybe even become a RH Trainer, then what you need to do next is spend as much time as possible simmering in the stew of masterfully facilitated RH processing and hot seat work.
There is no substitute for this kind of learning through osmosis.
And now, Brad and I (the only RH "Master Trainers") are excited to invite you to just such a stew -- a massive new opportunity for osmosis!
Rather than spending our time on structured exercises and lectures, we will focus on facilitating lots of spontaneous RH process and hotseat work.
Ultimately, RH is not something you can learn by talking about it. You can't learn it with your head. You have to learn it, in real time, with your whole body. You cannot master it by thinking about it. You have to DO it. You have to spend as much time as possible engaged in the practice, the social meditation that is RH, preferably with those who already have lots of experience and have managed to embody it.
We have created this new workshop format to give you the most concentrated and powerful opportunity for this kind of learning that we can, and I am really excited to offer it to you, and work with you in this way. Whether you want to become a RH trainer, yourself, or just know that you want to take your transformation deeper and learn to LIVE the practice of Radical Honesty, I think you will get a LOT out of this retreat... I hope you will join us!
Where will the workshop take place?
The workshop is being held at our favorite Hollywood, Florida mansion, just a short walk from the beach!
We've had a few workshops at this big, lovely home, and we love it- it's really been perfect for our large groups. It's got ample space for meeting, cozy nooks inside and out for relaxing during breaks, and an amazing courtyard and pool area for enjoyment anytime we can squeeze it in!
As always, we’ll be sharing rooms (and even some beds!) and some of us will be sleeping on air mattresses, and we’ll all have shifts to pitch in on food prep, meal clean-up, and trash duty.
When will the workshop begin and end?
We'll all arrive at the house on the evening of Thursday, March 14th (anytime after 6pm) so we can settle in, hang out, maybe go out to dinner, and then be up and ready to get started on Friday morning.
The workshop will begin at around 9am on Friday, March 15th and end around 10am on Saturday, March 23rd.
We’ll have 8 full days of workshop time together, with an evening before and a morning after.
How much does it cost?
The workshop is $3200. Make a $500 deposit to reserve your spot!
The fee covers the training, daily healthy meals, and shared accommodation.
About Brad and Taber
Dr. Brad Blanton is a psychotherapist, writer and workshop leader and the author of several books including the bestseller Radical Honesty: How to Transform Your Life by Telling the Truth. The book’s thesis is that the primary cause of our stress, depression and anger is us “living in a story and lying to maintain it.” Not telling our friends, lovers, spouses or bosses about what we do, feel or think keeps us locked in a mind jail. The way out is to get good at telling the truth. In this book, Brad provides the tools we can use to escape the jail of the mind.
Brad describes himself as “white trash with a Ph.D.” Armed with quick wit and an engaging Southern accent, he speaks with an unwavering honesty that is both disarming and challenging, a quality that has earned him admirers as well as detractors. He spent 30 years in the private practice of clinical psychology and became the Director of The Center for Well Being in Washington, D.C. where he did psychotherapy with individuals, couples, and groups. In 1990 he founded the Center for Radical Honesty, a nonprofit corporation that promotes honesty in the world. Since then, Brad has led hundreds of Radical Honesty workshops in North America and Europe.
Taber Shadburne (M.A.) is a cutting-edge counselor and teacher of transformation, who’s been helping folks transform their lives for over 25 years. He studied Zen for 10 years, living for a few of those at the Dharma Rain Zen Center, and has worked with various spiritual teachers. He received an M.A. in psychotherapy, and has done way more meditation retreats, professional trainings, spiritual practices, and touchy-feely personal growth workshops than is at all reasonable for any person his age. He co-authored the book The Heart of Healing: Inspired Ideas, Wisdom and Comfort from Today's Leading Voices. He has facilitated Radical Honesty workshops and intensives for more than 15 years.
