Who said Radical Honesty and Deep Relaxation don’t go together?
If you want to fully explore the world of Radical Honesty but value your quiet and leisure time as well, this retreat is perfect for you. Join long-term Radical Honesty practitioners and Prague-based flatmates Marvin Schulz and Sebastian James for a week of self exploration, in-depth training in Radical Honesty and raw adventures on the pristine Pelion peninsula.
The mornings are dedicated to your formal training in Radical Honesty, teaching you the skills to live your life out loud and play more. The afternoon is filled with beach time, trips to nearby waterfalls or simply hanging out and enjoying nature and each other’s company.
Our Daily Routine
Each morning, before breakfast, we’ll do an (optional) session of yoga and meditation. At 8:30, we’ll eat breakfast – fresh fruits, locally-made bread, real Greek yogurt and organic porridge. Since we are an active part of the Kalikalos community, we will all help out with food preparation at times.
After breakfast, from 9:30 till 1:30, we’ll come together for our Radical Honesty group session. 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.
At 1:30, we’ll break for lunch.
After lunch, we’ll be free to hike through the lush green forest, lay on a white sandy beach, swim in the Aegean Sea, chill at the village tavernas, lounge in the hammocks, talk amongst ourselves, etc.
From 6 PM to 8:30 PM is community time, when 2 or 3 of our group will garden and cook together, or help later on with the clean-up. Dinner will be served at 8:00, and after eating we can talk, dance, sing, drink, play and hang out. We can practice being radically honest with each other and converse about how we can live our lives in love and in contribution to others.

"I think most human suffering and depression is caused by a lack of close connection to fellow human beings. Once we start opening up to the world around us–tell our story, express ourselves directly, and share our thoughts and feelings–we can create a future of our own design. I want to help you acquire the necessary tools for sharing yourself honestly with the world, get over past hurt and upset, and learn to stay in the present moment while working towards a happy future."
