We create an honest environment for you to experiment.
There are so few places where we give ourselves permission to be fully who we are.
Our relationships, families, and workplaces are often built on lies, withholdings, and posturing. We edit, self-censor and perform. Over time, our personal sales pitch becomes who we think we are and we end up shamed, stressed, depressed, disconnected and trapped in our thoughts. We think there’s a much more alive way to live, and we want to share it with you.
Honesty Lab creates immersive Weekend Workshops based in Radical Honesty to counteract this situation, encouraging you to share who you really are in a community that values living out loud.
*Note: Radical Honesty workshops are not psychotherapy, but are a training in personal growth and development.
What We Do
During a Weekend Honesty Lab, we experiment in telling the truth out loud and noticing what we discover. Through direct sharing, we quickly see how we hold ourselves back from living the life we want, block intimacy, and use our minds to make ourselves unhappy, disconnected, and depressed.
Radical Honesty principles and skills are taught in a planned experiential sequence to support us in telling the truth and sticking with whatever comes up.
The weekend includes:
Who is this workshop for?
If you're curious (and a little nervous) about leaving your comfort zone and telling the truth about your experience, the weekend workshop is for you.
Join us if you want to:
+ Be completely and compassionately honest

+ Relieve stress caused by constant thinking and worrying
+ Use anger and conflict creatively
+ Repair broken relationships
+ Get over past hurts and experience full-body forgiveness

*We particularly encourage friends and couples (or ex-couples) to do the workshop together, and we hold a special place in our hearts for people who are fed up with workshops and personal growth programs.
What They Are Saying…
“The biggest takeaway was getting honest feedback about how I come across to others and some of the ways I keep people at a distance. I also got a real sense of how much I like to play the victim and the woe-is-me game, especially with my work and in dealing with my moods, areas where I often feel put upon.
The best parts of the weekend were the moments of real connection with some of the other people there, especially when there was an initial judgment and then later I grew to love them, something I never believed would actually happen.
I’ve done a few other weekend workshops with other groups and I feel I got the most by far out of this one. If you’re someone who thinks of themselves as being too scared to attend - I certainly felt that way - you may get a lot out of it. Or you may not. But I’m so glad I stuck with it and didn’t bail!”
“I found John to be inspiring, eloquent and highly skilled at helping us connect with our moment to moment sensory/energetic experience and express it in a respectful, authentic way.
He is quite adept at creating an atmosphere of trust and permission to show up just as we are. I am so glad that I attended John's Radical Honesty Lab weekend workshop. I am very grateful for having had the opportunity to experience his wholehearted affirmation of our humanness and our raw, unvarnished beauty."
Living vibrantly, buoyantly, staying in the moment; that's what i have experienced more of since attending the Honesty Lab's Weekend Experience. I have also had deeper conversations with my self. Deception and living in the remote fantasies of my mind had been my reality- how bracing to leave that and BE in the messy, mystical now. Thank you John!
"Lindsay & John, Please accept these imaginings as evidence of the gratitude and excitement I am making myself feel:
Thank you for holding space. Thank you for destroying everything I thought “should” happen and for delivering a life-changing breath of fresh air.
For exemplifying and not just talking about connection and being. For creating a space where open honesty and love truly found a way to lead.
I have never witnessed so much done by so few means and it was wonderful. I realize I imagined it all - but this is a new type of imagining I have never experienced but hope to again.
I can assure you this shift will be felt deeply and widely by my clients, but fuck them, I was here to get more than I gave and that was beyond the truth for me. I feel it in me - and it will be felt by my children and our family. My family just grew again." - Kevin
