About this workshop.

In this workshop you will learn how to express yourself and share a personal message by writing your very own personal manifesto! A manifesto is a declaration of your core values and beliefs, what you stand for, and how you intend to live your life. It could be a statement of principles, a call to action or bringing awareness to a cause you believe in.

The tools we’ll use:

We'll be incorporating tried and tested practices such as journaling, group sharing, self-enquiry, breath-work and meditation. We'll also be exploring creative tools such as poetry, drawing, song-writing and dance. 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.

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!
By Bers G for My Queer Year in Review | Free Workshop | 16th Dec 2021 on 26 Dec, 2021
We Create Space did something I wasn’t aware I needed: support from a queer platform to help me achieve my dreams and navigate life. The dedication that all the team put in all workshops and the ‘Who AM I?’ programme to make it remarkable is impressive. Being vulnerable and open in front of strangers at the online retreat was powerful and helped me to connect more with myself and my purpose in life. I couldn’t thank you enough! This is an organisation I want to grow and expand in order to reach more people needing help but not realising how important it will be for them. Thank you, thank you, thank you, We Create Space!

I highly can recommend this wonderful and inspiring workshop. I came with no expectations and knowledge about what will happen during the two days and left the workshop filled with so much input, empowerment, inspiration and courage. Over the whole weekend, Mayliss and Michael created a space with so much openness, honesty, trust, interest, knowledge and emotions, which even a month later helped me to create a space for myself, self-reflection and self-love.

What a wonderful experience! The Whom am I? retreat matched all my expectations and beyond, it was great way for me to explore everything related to my identity, connect with like-minded individuals & heal, within a safe space. I would totally recommend this retreat to everyone who wants to embrace their full self!
By Jean Baptiste M for Who am i? | 23+24 Oct 2021 | GBTQ | US on 10 Nov, 2021
The retreat was inspiring and empowering. The focus on self-discovery meant I left with a deeper understanding of my personal motivations and how to be my authentic self. I would totally recommend it to any members of the LGBT+ community who want space to reflect about their future.

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.
