RADICAL HONESTY LIVE: 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.
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.
What We Do
Lectures, directed conversations, paired exercises, small group exercises, Radical Honesty hot seat work, meditation and more. All this is geared toward having you learn and practice the distinction between noticing and thinking; the difference between interpreting and thinking about reality, and actually noticing it, through direct experience. Then you learn to share what you notice about the reality of your own experience with others, as the basis for true intimacy—learning to love ourselves and love other beings by learning to love Being, itself.
