'Give Me Strength' is a self-empowerment workshop introducing new processes and tools for identifying your unique strengths and creating more ‘moments of success’ in your own life.
“Create the world you want to live in.” Sharon Gannon
- 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
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.
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.
