Workshop led by Trainer Tuulia Syvänen and Trainer Candidate Seán Middleton
Transform Your Life by Telling the Truth!
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
you 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 is non-residential and will take place in central Helsinki.
The workshop will be conducted in English. Finnish speakers will have the opportunity to do paired exercises together in Finnish.
The workshop will take place:
Friday 3 May 18:00 – 21:00
Saturday 4 May 10:00 – 18:00
Sunday 5 May 09:00 – 17:00
The workshop leader will be certified Radical Honesty trainer Tuulia Syvänen. She will be assisted by Radical Honesty trainer candidate Seán Middleton.
