'What's My Purpose' is a free workshop to help you explore your own personal strategy. 


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


We equip participants with new tools for self-discovery and growth; challenging self-imposed narratives and bringing more awareness to the impact that our stories can have on deciding our own future.

Is this the right programme for you?

Join this workshop to…

-  Identify what you want to achieve
-  Understand why your past needs consideration
-  Discover how you could add more meaning into your own life
-  Explore the impact of your current self-imposed personal narratives
-  Challenge any self-limiting beliefs
-  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. 


Other benefits of this workshop. 

One of the main tools we will use is being able to envision yourself and others in different ways. This is a fundamental practice and skill for effective and compassionate: 


·  Self-reflection and enquiry

·  Leadership and change management

·  Conflict resolution (internal and external)

·  Personal growth and development

The tools we’ll use:

We'll be incorporating tried and tested practices such as journaling, group sharing, self-enquiry, breathwork and meditation. These will be interspersed with key teachings and coaching techniques.

Our trusted team.

We personally design, organise and facilitate each of our retreats and workshops; partnering internationally with leading industry professionals in each sector. Throughout the duration of the retreat, you’ll work in close collaboration with each of the team members in respect of their given workshop. 

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.

An amazing workshop that gave space for reflection and connecting to courage! The speakers' sharing from experience was so inspiring and created a sense of belonging. I found the tools provided for self-coaching and embodiment so useful and practical for all queers.

An amazing experience, really relieving by sharing thoughts with people who are feeling like you. A safe environment and a real space inside this world that actually cares for you. I would recommend it without a second thought.

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!
