"The phrase 'that's none of your business' has no place in a truly intimate relationship." - Brad Blanton, PhD
Radical Honesty has a lot to offer our romantic relationships, especially on how to deal with anger, insecurity in our attachments, jealousy, true intimacy, the full expression of self, and clearly expressing our boundaries from moment to moment.
You'll learn how to:
Foster interdependence (as distinct from co-dependence and independence)
Appreciate yourself and others for who you are, rather than who you think you / they SHOULD be
Heal the past and get over current hurts and struggles
Foster a growth mindset for yourself and within your romantic relationship(s)
Distance yourself from the crazy-making stories and drama of the monkey mind
And you'll learn the delicate dance of contact and withdrawal by simply and clearly stating what is going on with you right now
Radical Honesty is the intimate, interpersonal meditation of simply reporting what you notice in your personal experience from moment to moment, rather than staying stuck in the games, role-playing, manipulation, and fantasies of the mind. You'll learn to relate as one being to another, rather than one mind fighting for dominance over the other.
This workshop is for anyone who is interested in honesty, personal growth, authentic connection, and truly intimate relating.

In this workshop we will learn and put into practice the foundational Radical Honesty Distinctions, including Noticing vs. Imagining, the Awareness Continuum, and expressing Resentments & Appreciations. We work with whatever arises in the moment, whatever you and your partner(s) bring to the group.
This Valentine's Retreat is for newcomers and experienced Radical Honesty practitioners alike. We will cover the fundamentals of Radical Honesty distinctions and get some experiential practice in applying those distinctions in our lives and in our relationships from moment to moment.

This retreat is aimed at helping romantic partners redesign your relationships to focus on supporting each other in being your best self, as defined by you. We will help you to drop all agendas of your partner(s) changing and to accept each other completely and wholly as you are.
Our aim is to help you re-contextualize your relationships around supporting one another in being who/how you want to be in a way that acknowledges and embraces the aspects of yourself that are not in alignment with that vision.Sex & intimacy
In addition to covering the basics of Radical Honesty as they pertain to romantic relationships, we'll do some experiential exercises that center on self-awareness and being clear about what we want, exercises around becoming aware of and letting go of our manipulative tactics, asking for what we want in vulnerable ways that empower your partner to say “yes or no,” awareness of our internal conflicts, and being grounded in self-awareness of our own wants, desires, and boundaries. These powerful exercises around exploring, sharing, and facing fears will transform your views on sex and the possibilities for intimacy.

“It is difficult to transition into adulthood in a world full of adolescents. This practice of Radical Honesty has been the most important work I've done in my personal journey of growing up and I'm hungry to surround myself with others who want to embark on this journey with me. There's a whole lot of road left for us to travel.” -Mak
