'Give Me Courage' is a workshop for those who feel ready to start embracing a part of their identity that has up until now been hidden, rejected or dismissed. Led by a team of queer mentors and coaches, we'll start to explore new processes and tools for leveraging our uniqueness and connecting more authentically with those around us.


“Courage starts with showing up and letting ourselves be seen.” Brené Brown

Why join this workshop?

-  Gain some clarity on what it is that you really want to achieve
-  Discover new self-care tools for managing your own wellbeing
-  Challenge self-imposed personal narratives
-  Acquire fresh perspectives 

-  Feel empowered having discovered new information about yourself
-  Refresh and recalibrate your core values
-  Increase the positive impact you could have in the world

About this workshop.

In this world we don't always have the psychological safety to feel comfortable fully showing up as ourselves. Whether it be in our family environments, at work, or in society. When this is the case, how do we honour our own boundaries when navigating our interaction with others? And give ourselves permission to only authentically share what feels right. And then what about those moments when we do want to show up unapologetically as ourselves? How do we cultivate the courage and confidence to leave our unique mark on the world? 


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.

This workshop has been designed by Create Space Workshops in partnership with We Create Space.

I got such a great deal from this workshop within such a small amount of time. My journal was full of so many useful notes by the end of it! My only wish is that it would have lasted longer!! Huge thanks to both the incredible team who put this together and those who lead the workshop with such passion, vigour, and wisdom.
A really well structured workshop with a variety of focuses within the overall arch of positive thinking. It was a very conscientious space, welcoming and clear in the intentions and the different contributions. I particularly liked the breathing, physical focus element.

This was an exceptional retreat. A well-organised programme with thoughtful content and a fantastic opportunity to connect with likeminded individuals looking to improve themselves via meditation, conversation and workshopping. I highly recommend the We Create Space team and I look forward to attending more events in the future.
A great session that provided a unique opportunity for those who identify as LGBTQ+ to come together, support each other, share stories and learn from the facilitators. I personally found the session a valuable use of my time and would highly recommend to others.
Wow! I’ve attended several free workshops from We Create Space but this one was special and it impacted more than I was expecting! The exercises we did triggered questions and thoughts that were deep but so much needed. It allowed me to reconnect with my past self to understand better how it shaped me. I committed to explore this further as I realized there seems to be much more to unpack. I’m so grateful I got to realize this thanks to this workshop. I also got the chance to authentically connect with like minded people from diverse backgrounds. A unique experience I strongly recommend!

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!
