Workshop led by Tuulia Syvänen and Trainer-in-Training Jakob Eichhorn
A workshop about Living Out Loud, Being Happy, Getting over Shit and Living in the Present
Radical Honesty is about living in the Here and Now. It is a communication tool and lifestyle, which leads you to connect more deeply with others by expressing our fear, anger, appreciation and whatever is arising in the moment.
Content of the training
This workshop includes lectures, directed conversations, paired exercises, small group exercises, hot seat work, meditation and much more to help you learn how to relax into intimacy based on being open and honest. All this is geared toward having you learn and practice the distinction between thinking and noticing; the difference between interpreting reality and actually noticing it through direct experience. Then you learn to share what we notice about the reality of your own experience with others, and have it be the basis for true intimacy—learning to love being and love other beings. In this workshop, you can express yourself by laughing, shouting, crying, smiling, sharing and by asking for what you want.
This workshop is for you if
-you want to experience more freedom in your life
-you want to let go of shame, fear and attachment to approval
-you are looking for using conflict creatively and want to go beyond blame
-you desire to learn the art of asking for what you want
-want to heal your relationships and find forgiveness
-you yearn deeper love, connection & intimacy
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. 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.
We claim that 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.
The workshop will take place in Berlin and is non-residential.
The workshop will take place:
Friday 6 April 18:30 – 21:00
Saturday 7 April 10:00 – 18:00

The workshop leaders are certified Radical Honesty trainer Tuulia Syvänen and trainer-in-training Jakob Eichhorn.

About the trainers
Tuulia Syvänen is the certified Radical Honesty trainer who has led the most RH workshops in Europe. She also does 1:1 and couples coaching. 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 25 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 15-year-old son.
I am a Radical Honesty Trainer-in-Training living in Ulm, southern Germany. I first experienced this work in August 2016 and have been a dedicated practitioner ever since. In early 2017, I began assisting Tuulia Syvänen with facilitating at workshops and have completed an RH Trainer’s Training led by Brad Blanton and Taber Shadburne. I’m working hard on becoming a Certified Trainer.
My passion for this work is fueled by knowing what it feels like to constantly withhold true feelings while trying to please others. I wasted a lot of energy trying to be the nicest guy in the world. I’ve transformed my old self-image of being introverted, shy and sensitive. While those traits are still present in me, now I’m also comfortable expressing other parts of myself, like being loud, outgoing, cheerful and joyous.
In the spring of 2017, I started leading Radical Honesty events on own in Ulm and I currently run an ongoing group that meets every couple of weeks. I love hearing people express themselves in open and vulnerable ways and I’m keen on further developing my facilitating skills and knowledge.
