I’m so pleased to have found We Create Space; Michael and the team are fantastic and the workshop was incredible! The sessions are really well structured, the content is fresh and relevant, and the welcome you receive is so warm and inviting. I feel part of a great community of people and can’t wait for more!

For the past three years something has been preventing me getting what I want. After coming across Create Space's AD on Instagram I was taken aback by how similar the questions they were looking to explore on their What's My Purpose? workshop were to the questions that have been circling in my own mind for the past three years. It was a complete shock to me that after three hours being guided by the incredibly open, uplifting, supportive and community driven team at Create Space I was able to unlock the key to answering my questions. Would recommend the workshop to anyone feeling stuck in any way in their life. Whether you are looking for support emotionally, relationship wise or just looking to connect with more people in the LGBTQ+ community you would be hard to find a better place than Create Space.
Thanks for this great workshop, it was the first time ive tried anything like this so was pretty overwhelmed but it was so well organised and ran that i soon relaxed and took alot away from this experience, i will definitely be signing up for more. Suzanne x

I had an amazing time and learned a lot. Thanks to this, I have a clearer view of my goals. Also, realized not to hold pains from the past or think too much on the future, the best we can do is BREAHT, stay in the moment and keep going. One more time thank you very much!
This workshop explored interesting theories and how to apply them in relevance to ourselves. I enjoyed the smaller breakout rooms that gave me the chance to discuss some topics with people I didn't know and therefore be more comfortable in doing so. I also appreciated the chance to share wit the wider group. The workshops definitely left me thinking about some aspects of myself and my life and gave me a different perspective to consider.

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!
