-  Increase the positive impact you could have in the world


The Programme.

Why do we need a purpose?

If we think of our values as the guardrails for how we live our life (make decisions, act, and react), then purpose functions more as a north star, as one overarching, ultimate goal that guides us. Purpose is like setting your own long-term strategy of what you’d like to achieve in life. It can be a bit daunting, but once you identify it and embed it you’re guaranteed to quickly start making more meaningful and rewarding decisions.

About this workshop.

During this three-hour workshop, we will be exploring your own personal purpose and unique narrative. We want you to feel empowered with the new information you’re going to uncover and leave with actionable steps towards setting yourself new goals in life. You will take part in various creative and interactive workshops to help you focus on the possibilities, and we’ll be encouraging you to use your imagination to discover brand new perspectives. 

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 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.

Who knew it would be possible to transform your way of thinking in only 3.5 hours. This session is total gold dust. I've never shared a space with only LGBT+ people speaking so openly about our challenges and workshoping ways forward. The format of theory, breathwork, inspirational guest speaker, space to think and discuss with others was a winning formula that helped me formulate some direction in my life at a time when the world seemed to have pulled the rug from under me. Can highly recommend.
Another excellent and engaging workshop. The facilitation was very professional and focussed on the needs of the attendees. I was so engrossed the time absolutely flew by. Once again it was a pleasurable and constructive workshop and I look forward to attending future events. Hightly recommended.

What’s my Purpose part 2 was a very challenging but fascinating workshop taking on pillars around risk and relationships and what that future might entail. An extremely well facilitated discussion, with care, compassion and thoughtfulness. Can’t wait to take part in the next series of workshops,
Morning with amazing personalities, lots of new thoughts and interesting stories. Kind, accepting and supporting space. A great way to stop for a while, and explore your thoughts and find your strenght.
Thank you for a great and inspiring workshop. Going through your own path in change with method of songwriting was new, yet effective and growing way to learn how you experience changes. Athmosphere was warm, welcoming and safe.

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!
