About this workshop.

During this three-hour workshop, we'll be exploring your intentions for 2021. You'll be guided through a simple process of self-enquiry, as we discover how to start making important changes from the inside-out. 


We want you to feel empowered with the new information you’re going to uncover and leave with actionable steps towards taking more control of your own life. 


You will take part in various creative and interactive workshops to help you bring your intentions to life, and we’ll be encouraging you to use your mind and body to discover brand new perspectives about yourself. 

The tools we’ll use:

We'll be incorporating tried and tested practices such as journaling, group sharing, self-enquiry, breath-work and meditation. These will be interspersed with key teachings and coaching techniques.

About our approach.

We offer a safe space to get curious, open up and discuss with others, aspects of your life you’re finding challenging or simply want to improve. Naturally it is a completely confidential space, where individuals can openly share their feelings and thoughts with the option of anonymity. 


Your safety comes first.


Your safety is our main priority. For this reason, we may need to ask participants for some personal medical information, before we can confirm your place on the workshop. These are standard questions, there to protect your safety and everyone else involved. This information will only be shared on a need to know basis and will be GDPR compliant. We will also be undertaking other necessary safety measures, during and post-retreat.


We would highly recommend individuals with concerns relating to pre-existing mental health conditions, substance misuse and related disorders to seek immediate professional help.

Taking this workshop felt like a bit of a risk for me but I was completely blown away. The community created in such a short time was wonderful. I particularly liked the breakout sessions as a way to share more personally with a small group and explore the prompts from our amazing facilitator. The visualisation exercise with he two doors has actually been very profound for me and I find myself asking 'am I following the right door' repeatedly after the session. Finally, the breathwork exercises were so grounding and relaxing, our guides soothing voice completely set the tone for the workshop. I was left with lots to think about and immediately signed up for the next one. My thanks to the Create Space team!
This was a very insightful and powerful session for me. I had attended the What's my Purpose workshop before so I already knew the format already and still I had new insights this time, about how the relationships I have with people, things, and myself are so important and interlinked with my personal and career goals. Also, the breathing work is inspiring, and the testimonials of invited speakers talking about their journeys overcoming mental health issues and finding their truer selves... I love the language we use throughout the session too; it feels so gentle and accepting, and intuitive. Not at all pressuring or oppressive like a lot of life coaching out there that is mainly material-goal oriented. This feels a lot more intuitive and emotionally intelligent. It's also refreshing to explore those issues in a loving LGBTQ+ environment where we don't feel marginalised, and we can feel heard and our issues understood. Most queer spaces in the real world are alcohol and drug-fueled and quite shallow in some respects. This is the antidote to that. This is a safe space where we can all come together as fellow LGBTQ+ people and talk about what really matters and connect on a more meaningful level.
This was such a great session - challenging, insightful and engaging. It was lovely to get the chance to hear from the incredible facilitators but also to have some honest conversations with the others in attendance. Would definitely recommend for anyone in the LGBTQ+ community looking for a safe space to open up and reflect on their identity journey.
I’m so pleased to have found We Create Space; Michael and the team are fantastic and the workshop was incredible! The sessions are really well structured, the content is fresh and relevant, and the welcome you receive is so warm and inviting. I feel part of a great community of people and can’t wait for more!

For the past three years something has been preventing me getting what I want. After coming across Create Space's AD on Instagram I was taken aback by how similar the questions they were looking to explore on their What's My Purpose? workshop were to the questions that have been circling in my own mind for the past three years. It was a complete shock to me that after three hours being guided by the incredibly open, uplifting, supportive and community driven team at Create Space I was able to unlock the key to answering my questions. Would recommend the workshop to anyone feeling stuck in any way in their life. Whether you are looking for support emotionally, relationship wise or just looking to connect with more people in the LGBTQ+ community you would be hard to find a better place than Create Space.

I took part in a weekend Who Am I? retreat and highly recommend it. The group size is intimate so never feels too daunting and you're able to build connections well. Maylis was a fantastic organiser - felt there was great communication from pre-booking right through to afterwards. Michael is a fantastic host, he leads the retreat with from a place of kindness, vulnerability and openness I find really commendable. Whether you're new to self exploration or a seasoned pro - I think this is worth doing.

I attended the Who Am I retreat in early June to explore my identify as a gay man. I found the retreat a life-enriching experience. The communication before the retreat was excellent and I particularly enjoyed the pre-retreat call. It was an intense two days - and virtual because of lockdown - but the conversations were enriching and inspiring and I thought that the structure and content was very well designed. Recommended!
