Learn a revolutionary new way of communicating that is spontaneously transformational. Use deep intimacy – its joys & sorrows, challenges and promise – as a potent path of evolutionary growth.  Harness the power of complete and compassionate honesty, to use conflict creatively, let go of shame, ask for everything you want.  Use the big emotional energies we usually fear – shame, anger, grief, sex, conflict, love, joy – as fuel for healing, growth, transformation, and service.  You will learn the theory and practice of Radical Honesty.  You will get practical ideas and tools, personal coaching and guidance, and real-time experiential practice.

Hi, I’m Taber

I’m a spiritual counselor and guide, a teacher of transformation.

I love practicing, teaching and facilitating what I call R/evolutionary R/elating, as well as “Radical Honesty”. 

My relationships aren’t “normal”.  Relating is my extreme sport, my 21st century spiritual path, my spontaneous art form.

Consequently, I’m just not very interested in most of what passes for normal conversation.

Instead, I’m passionately pursuing – creating, practicing, and teaching – the esoteric spiritual art form of a truly transformational intimacy.

And, I want any and all who dare, who feel so called and think they can hang, to join me in playing this life changing game together.

I think that finding just the right balance of intentionally scaring and embarrassing yourself, and having compassion, empathy and patience for yourself, right where you’re at, is the best way to learn and grow.  And, that growing and learning to share your own unique gifts with others and spreading more love in the world is the best way to live.
