'What's My Purpose' is a workshop to explore your own personal purpose, strategy and potential. 


“If you don’t know what you want, you can’t create it.”

Why join this workshop?

-  Start identifying what it is that you really want from life
-  Discover how you could add more meaning into your life

-  Acquire fresh perspectives and new information about yourself
-  Re-calibrate your ambitions and what you think is possible in your own life
-  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.

The retreat is a good investment of a weekend. The attendees are from a variety of backgrounds and at different stages of their own journey. This format works really well, enabling partcipants to share and learn from each other in a relaxed and confidential environment. Attending this retreat will have have a profound effect on how you look at yourself, building your confidence in how you view yourself as part of our community.
I want to thank the Create Space team for this workshop. The experience of going through these processes amongst a diverse group had a transformative effect on my compassion and respect for the wider community and allows for personal introspection with a sense of perspective that is simply not possible through the practice of one-to-one therapy. I left with a greater sense of connection to myself, and to the wider community. For anyone interested in personal development and exploring some fundamental questions about yourself I could not recommend this more. Time extremely well spent which will stay with me for a long time.
It was a beautiful experience full of compassion, kindness, and openness. I learned some things.
I attended Part 2 of this two part workshop and it was really phenomenal - hoping to join Part 1 when it is repeated later in the year. It is extremely rare to find such thoughtful and intelligent workshops that help you to connect with yourself in such a meaningful way. I am already applying lessons that I learnt and am hugely appreciative to the speakers and those running different parts of the workshop for sharing their stories and bringing mindfulness and authentic connection to each part of the afternoon. Really recommend. Thank you!

This was a very insightful and inspiring event! If you are looking for the right tools to handle/manage personal issues BEFORE those problems arrive, this is for you!

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!
