We’ll spend five days and four nights together in Finnish lakeside cottages, surrounded by a lush pine forest in light green spring colors by a lake. The retreat will include daily workshop sessions, free time for walking in the forests, spending time with your partner and others, relaxing and nightly Finnish saunas. This retreat will be limited to six couples.

Workshop on How to Live, Love, Laugh & Be Happy & Completely Ruin Life as You Know It
Radical Honesty is direct communication that leads to intimacy. 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 and eventually kills the connection, love and intimacy with your partner.
We claim that lying is the major source of all human stress and makes relationships superficial and many of us lonely in our relationships. 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 pretences, we can refresh our relationships and powerfully create new ways of living together. That is the not so secret of Radical Honesty.
What will we do? On each day, we’ll do some yoga or body movement, meditation, workshop sessions and couples and group exercises. The sessions will include an introduction to Radical Honesty; a deeper dive into RH; and learning through theory, discussions, sharing and exercises on how to be radically honest. We’ll do group and paired exercises as well as hot seat work.
The usual weather conditions in the area call for temperatures between 3 and 10 Celsius. In the night time frost is still possible.
We will also have free time for connecting, relaxing, swimming, walking in the forest, rowing a boat, fishing and appreciating nature in its spring costume.
The training will be conducted in English. You will have the opportunity to do paired exercises with your partner in your native language.
The retreat will begin on Friday 18 May at 16:00 and will conclude on Tuesday 22 May by 13:00.
To reach the retreat site from outside Finland, fly to Helsinki airport and then take a two-hour train ride to Tampere. Another option is to fly directly to Tampere airport (served by Ryanair, Finnair and Scandinavian Airlines). From Amsterdam there are now budget airlines Transavia and Norwegian flying to Helsinki.
Participants will be asked to assist in the cooking, serving and cleaning up of meals/snacks as a way to help create a community during our five days together. This is commonly done in longer Radical Honesty workshops.
The workshop leaders are certified Radical Honesty Trainers Tuulia Syvänen and Pete Jordan.
They are also a couple organizing and running workshops together.
