About this trip

Workshop : Play Your Self

Date : Saturday 15th May

Time : 10:00 - 13:00 UKT (GMT)

Location : Virtual

Audience : LGBTQ+

Cost : FREE / PAY WHAT YOU CAN


'Play Your Self' is a workshop using script writing as a powerful self-enquiry tool for exploring our different personas (inner voices). Once we become more aware of our protagonist's character traits we can begin to strengthen them to change our own personal narrative and drive forward our goals in life.


“Become the hero in your own story.”

Why join this workshop?

-  Gain some clarity on what it is that you really want or need from life
-  Discover new self-care tools for managing your own wellbeing
-  Challenge self-limiting beliefs or self-imposed personal narratives
-  Acquire fresh perspectives 

-  Feel empowered having discovered new information about yourself
-  Re-calibrate what you think is possible in your own life

-  Try something new, feel inspired or simply get creative
-  Increase the positive impact you could have in the world

About this workshop.

During this three-hour workshop, we'll be using script-writing as a tool for self-enquiry. You'll be guided through a simple process of character building and story telling, exploring the protagonist and antagonist of your own personal narrative. 


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 focus on the different character traits of each persona, and we’ll be encouraging you to use your imagination 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.

Once again, Create Space provided a fantastically engaging, creative and wholesome workshop. The unique sense of community, mutual respect, compassion for eachother’s perspective, and the welcoming of individual story was as ever - beautiful and powerful. Create Space always manages to transcend the often limiting power of zoom/online sessions seem elsewhere. Its workshops marvellously still enable people to connect in a meaningful way - even through the screen. In fact the online nature of the session means that even more people from around the word, in different time zones and diverse different cultures are able to come together. This further elevates the organisations commitment to creating a space and community that is accessible and inclusive to as many people across the LGBTQ spectrum as possible. Thanks as ever to Michael, the CS team and all of the participants for 3 hours of joy and learnings that I can take forward day to day!

If you are looking for a journey inward - this is a great place to begin. The weekend is packed with so many opportunities to uncover gifts you may have overlooked, discovering new ways of being you might not have stopped to think about. It is a chance to open the door to your inner self and examine what obstacles you are faced with and what learning you can take from them as you overcome each one to create a new sense of being. The breathing and meditation components are a perfect alignment in allowing all of this to come together seamlessly.

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!
