Radical Honesty in Berlin is a project I’ve started in 2014 to explore life by telling the truth with my friends. This is how I got to know Radical Honesty by a clinical psychotherapist Brad Blanton PhD.
After attending a week-long Radical Honesty workshop with Brad in Greece and getting a set of exercises to play with, I started offering workshops to practice Radical Honesty in Berlin. I used Authentic Relating games and Body Awareness exercises.
After 3 years of practicing Radical Honesty, doing completion talks, sharing with people the philosophy behind it, giving free talks and workshops all over Europe, living and working with the master trainer Taber Shadburne MA in California and organizing transformational workshops for him and other trainers, I finally got it. It’s experiential! Radical Honesty is simply reporting what I notice! Noticing first, thinking second. After years of playful and frustrating practice, starting with 2 people on board, now I have more than 700 people community in Berlin and in Lithuania, of which most of them I know intimately and in person. Wanna join this tribe?
What is Radical Honesty?
Radical Honesty is a kind of communication that is direct, complete, open and expressive. Radical Honesty means you tell the people in your life what you’ve done or plan to do, what you think, and what you feel. It’s the kind of authentic sharing that creates the possibility of love and intimacy.

How does it work in Berlin?
I facilitate three events for practicing radical honesty in Berlin in combination with practices of body awareness and authentic relating. My events are experiential and experimental. I flow with the group dynamics, therefore every event is different and so are the outcomes.
The base for every event is me supporting you in telling the truth, challenging your beliefs, testing assumptions, expressing oneself fully and implementing changes in real life relationships.
What is a non-trainer in playing?
“You’re too smart to be a trainer. You need to get dumber” – Brad told me in the trainer’s training Feb 2017. He also told me he doesn’t want me to work with people. I appreciated his feedback and then resented him for it the next day. Sucks, or maybe not, because people want to work with me and so I want you to know that I’m not a trainer and I have my months of disappearance, this is when I go crazy and can’t get dumb enough to honestly relate to people until I ground myself somewhere away from cities :)
There are more non-trainers in playing who are amazing conscious fucked-up in their own unique way humans offering similar practices and also exercises from Radical Honesty workshops. You can connect to Aleksandra Piela (workshops in German) and Joe Jung (Authentic Relating Games night, Urban Joy, Meditation Tree Berlin founder) and Michael Kreuzwieser (Copenhagen – Berlin).

Objectives for my work
- to become aware of our stories of ourselves and who we think we are.
- to be active rather than reactive to life situations.
- to articulate how we feel, separating body sensations from emotions.
- to distinguish between reality and imagination.
- to divide attention for the purpose of being present.
- to express resentments and appreciations.
- to recognize and take over the responsibility of the quality of our lives and relationships.
My goal is change and intimacy through sharing that is conscious, visible, measurable, applicable, radical and revolutionary.
