This course is for you if...

  • You want to feel the freedom and empowerment of expressing yourself openly and living life out loud!

  • Do you struggle with asking for what you want from your loved ones, colleagues or friends?

  • Do you want to finally take charge of your life and empower yourself to create the life you really want?!

Radical Honesty can help!

Get Over Shit and BE Happy is a tailored process, curated over more 30 years of practice by Brad Blanton with the help of 1000’s of friends, designed specifically to confront the modern problems of disconnection, alienation and stress that arise as a result from a lifetime of withholding, pretending, and playing it small.

In this 6-week guided course, you will learn the tools, the process, and the perspective of Radical Honesty to help you resolve the problems that are most important to you.

Radical Honesty is…

  • A powerful tool and a set of flexible practices that you can use to create adaptable solutions to most of your problems.
  • A simple process of reporting out loud to another what you notice in front of you, in your body, and in your mind in the present moment.
  • A unique perspective that states the best way to heal your past, reduce your stress, and revitalize yourself, is to tell the truth.

  • How clear and direct your relating can be with your co-worker, your neighbor, or your boss who you always thought of as “off limits” for honesty

  • Tips and support for practicing Radical Honesty in the “real world” beyond the end of the course
  • and… some new, more-honest-than-average friends who’ll call you on your shit and still love you all the same.

There is a lot to gain from your participation in this course.However, you will not get much from this course if you simply make your way through the reading and videos without doing the exercises, participating in the live sessions,
and being honest with the people in your life.

*Radical Honesty is not about learning theory, and this work is not for the faint of heart.*

You will undoubtedly rock your world and create connection and relationships like you’ve never known- even with the people you’ve known your whole life- if you dig in and PRACTICE Radical Honesty.

This course is a great place to begin.

“I love the Radical Honesty community and the changes I’ve observed in my life as a result of being involved in it.

I’ve done a lot of so called “self-development” work and have enjoyed most of it, but find that Radical Honesty has made the biggest difference for me.I appreciate that there are no gimmicks - it doesn’t claim to be a miracle fix, doesn’t claim that all my problems will magically disappear and I’ll never feel sad or angry ever again.

As Brad says, “It works pretty good most of the time.” And that’s been my experience.

When I do the work, and I practice Radical Honesty and commit myself to telling the truth, even when I’m scared, I find I feel lighter, and generally happier.”

-Tony Cuseo, Seattle

“Practicing Radical Honesty helps me to come back to the here and now, observing myself and working on accepting me -and others- as we are right now.

I fully recommend this way of living and creating connection.”

-Begoña Gilabert, Barcelona

"Practicing Radical Honesty has helped me to experience my life with more freedom. I literally feel "lighter" in my life. I have found that the thoughts in my head about telling the truth and what will happen if I do tell the truth are so much scarier than what actually happens when I do get the courage to speak my scariest truths. I learned that if I can allow myself to feel uncomfortable for a relatively short period of time when I tell the truth, I am then free from these scary thoughts and the anxiety associated with these thoughts.

I'm much less anxious than I used to be and have developed a more connected feeling to the people I tell the truth. I highly recommend this practice to anyone who feels like they are always worried and consumed with thoughts! There is so much freedom on the other side of telling my Truth!!"

-Dan Houck, Denver

Frequently Asked Questions

When does the course start and finish?
The course begins on December 28th (online access to the material) and the last call is on February 2024.
How long do I have access to the course?
You'll have access to the course and forum for at least six months after the course ends. We'll give you 1 month's notice if we'll close access at any time in the future.
Will we be interacting with Brad Blanton during the course?
No, you’ll be interacting with the Course Guides, Mak and Sunshine, and with your fellow course participants.
Do I need to have experience with Radical Honesty to participate?
No! This course is great for folks who have never attended a Radical Honesty workshop, and also enriching for people who have. We cover the basics in this course, and consider it introductory level.
What if I've been to a Radical Honesty workshop? Will I still get something out of this?
It depends on how you approach it. If you come with a “beginner’s mind” knowing that we’re covering the fundamentals of Radical Honesty, as covered in the live workshops you’ve been to, and aware that “getting” the practice of Radical Honesty in your bones requires “practice, practice, practice” then yes, we think you can definitely get something out of it. If you come expecting advanced practice after attending several live workshops, then you may be disappointed. Like mentioned above, this is an introductory level course.
Do I need to have a partner in the course?
No, but we do recommend it and think you’ll get a hell of a lot more out of the course if you’ve got a friend, co-worker, partner, or family member to do the exercises with you in person. If you don’t have someone to practice with face to face, you can pair up with different folks in the course by connecting through the forum and getting on video calls together.
What if I miss the live calls?
Are they required for me to join? Your attendance on the calls is not required, though you’ll absolutely get the most bang for your buck by being an active participant in all of the calls. Recordings of each call with be shared with you.
What if I don’t like the course once I start? Can I get a refund?
Yes, if you’re not satisfied with the course after your first week of participation, you can receive a refund (minus VAT and processing fees) up until the second live call.
How much pre-recorded video content is available in the course?
The amount of pre-recorded video time in each module ranges from about 40 minutes to about 60 minutes, and the total video time in the whole course is about 5 1/2 hours.

Stop pretending you’re not pretending.
Experiment with being radically honest.
Transform your life by telling the truth.
