 “Create the world you want to live in.” Sharon Gannon

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.

As self-appointed activists, so many of us are thankfully now committed to making change happen. But what personal sacrifices are we making in search of liberation? What tools do we have at our disposal that we are not yet fully utilising?


Questions we'll be looking at:

What does success (‘the good life’) look like for me? What’s getting in my way of reaching my goal? Am I using my energy in the wrong places? Am I solely focused on correcting my weaknesses as opposed to maximising my strengths? How am I currently meeting my basics needs – the ones that could empower to thrive rather than survive? How do I stop reacting to the world around me and start creating the world I want to live in? 


Led by a team of queer mentors and coaches, we'll start to explore your unique needs, talents and future goals.


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.

Amazing experience and great opportunity for personal development. Thank you very much!
I connected with some really wonderful people and felt inspired by their honesty. Such a great group of individuals!
It was a fantastic workshop! It was good to know that they are people like yourself that are struggling and trying to find their purpose, it helped me to see that I am not alone. I definitely recommend it.

Another amazing workshop, really enjoy attending. The founder Micheal and the speakers are extremely welcoming. too. However this is only a slight insight into the experience, most speakers hosting the workshops share key theorist within the field being discussed leading this event to be informative and engaging. All attendees I have met have been so lovely and the participants are a great crowd. Oh the meditation at the start of the session really adds to the workshop too, so good. Looking forward to attend future workshops. See you there.
I had a fantastic and enlightening time on the retreat. It’s a shame it was virtual, as I really wanted to meet everyone in person, but it still worked really well. It was a brand new experience for me and I’ve taken so much from it already to take forward

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!
