About this trip

Time : 15:00 - 16:30 GMT

Location : Virtual

A self-empowerment workshop for becoming more courageous or confident in being yourself. Led by a team of LGBTQ+ 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

-  Feel empowered having discovered new information about yourself
-  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? How do we challenge the internal fear and 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. 

About the team.

This workshop has been designed by We Create Space - the LGBTQ+ self-empowerment platform.

I learned so much from this workshop not only for myself but for the students that I work with too. I gathered a lot of ideas for things I can share with them and teach them too. The best part of the workshop was that it was started with a mindfulness exercise and the creation of a calm and warm environment. It allowed me to feel ready to do the work we set out to do and face the obstacle that courage can create. Thanks so much y'all!!!

A powerful and transformative weekend, exploring how leadership intersects with queer identity. I left having increased awareness of the influences around us, and of knowledge in how I wanted to lead alongside my identity. For a while I have become aware of the responsibility I feel in corporate, and following the weekend have the tools to engage and be mindful of how to work alongside others in this space.

Excellent workshop with a very important theme. Wonderful break out discussions. Strongly recommend. Would only ask for more tangible examples for the group to use in the break out sessions. Thanks for having us!

There's such a uniquely wholesome environment that is created by the team - it's a few hours of being less of who the world expects us to be and more of who we really are.

I found this workshop very inspiring and moving. The speakers and couchers were very insigful, kind and skillful. It was an amazing space to share and conect with people of my comunity. And there was a lot of conection between us, even if we where miles apart. I think the work that "We create space" is excellent and I thank them so much for creating such 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!
