8 — 15 AUGUST ’18
€700 to €975
The 8th is arrival day with check-in and the welcome-meal at 8:30AM. The workshop sessions start on the 9th at 9:30AM. Check out is the 15th late morning. You will help to clean your room for the next arriving group just like the group before gave a hand to get your room ready.
“O.K. folks, here is what you are getting into. This workshop is less than half the usual price because it is also half a holiday in Greece with Radical honesty training in the mornings. Although the curriculum is concentrated, it is in the context of fairly easy going leisurely activity along with some community work in maintaining the center where it is held.
There will be some morning awarness training before breakfast at 8:30.
We will have some focused work in the mornings from about 9:30 AM up until about 1:30PM and after that we go to the beach and hike and swim and talk amongst ourselves and in the late afternoon and early evening two or three of us help to cook some supper together with the community guys. One or the other will also help to get breakfast ready.
On most of the evenings we will try to shortchange the agreement for work and go drink and dance and play backgammon and hang out with each other in the village and have conversations about how we can live our lives in love and contribution to others and have a good time doing it.

While not a compulsory part of the workshop, you will be encouraged to start a bit earlier in the morning to join people doing yoga, meditation and light exercise before breakfast. We do this because yoga and meditation and exercise put you in touch with experiential reality.
Breakfast is available from 8:30 AM and we eat together. Then the entire group meets from 9:30 AM until lunch time at 1:30 PM, and we’ll have occasional 15-minute breaks in between.
Radical honesty is about authenticity (sharing what you notice). The content of the meetings varies, but generally includes Gestalt hot seat work, lectures, directed conversations, paired exercises, small group exercises, and other training in addition to yoga and meditation and just being in sunny Greece.
All this is geared toward having you learn and practice the distinction between noticing and thinking, and be willing to share what you notice with each other as the basis for intimacy—loving being, and loving other beings.
From 6 PM to 8:30 PM is community time, when 2 or 3 of our group will be on the cooking team, or help later on with the clean-up. Some of you will be asked to give a hand preparing fruit for breakfast. These community works are a great opportunity for you to practice what you learned in the workshop as those guys are a bunch of idealistic and quite authentic people who will give you good feedback.
Call up and give us some money! And hurry up! This thing ought to fill up quick!
