Great event! I learned a lot! Was great to hear so many varying perspectives. It was also reassuring to hear from different people how they are all winging it to some extent, but feel motivated by their experiences to stand up and make change. Having now attended a number of We Create Space events, I can't recommend them enough!

The workshop did not really have a Corporate perspective, which was the reason why I participated. Too many sessions on breathing etc., 1 was enough. Content definitely interesting.

Had an amazing time at this workshop! Bee was really insightful and the team were incredibly welcoming. The group I was in was so much fun, and we all walked away with a piece of art unique to us as well as some takeaways on always being our authentic selves!

This was such a fantastic workshop from start to finish. The organisation and lead up was helpful and informative. From arrival everyone was so friendly and welcoming which is great if you are going on your own. It felt like a very safe space and to have everyone there for the same reason was great. The workshop itself was really good. Well thought through, interesting with time for discussion and self reflection. And whilst I'm not a morning person, it was great to be up early and really get into it.

A wonderful embodied “dance”between celebration of main highlights from the past year and the projection of next year’s main ideas/plans. I could enjoy the felt sense of a virtual community of likeminded queers, sometimes quite far in physical distance, still in any case interconnected in dreams, wishes and past celebrations!

I highly recommend We Create Space! I participated in a 2-day 'Who Am I?' Virtual Queer Leadership Retreat with other Queer leaders and it was truly transformational–I left forever changed. The intentional and purposeful programming by Michael and Maylis was so meaningful and well structured. The biggest draw for me was the community care and networking opportunity of being able to see and hear from other queer folx. This is what has been the hardest for me to find in my own personal journey.

The workshop I attended literally created space in both my body and mind for exploration, curiosity and openness. It was wonderfully facilitated, inspired immensely by the speakers' talks and other queer participants sharings. It shifted the way I saw different aspects of my life and opened the room for more discovery. Definitely recommended to all queer people who want to learn more and increase their inner potential!

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.
