'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
- 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
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.
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.
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.
