I got such a great deal from this workshop within such a small amount of time. My journal was full of so many useful notes by the end of it! My only wish is that it would have lasted longer!! Huge thanks to both the incredible team who put this together and those who lead the workshop with such passion, vigour, and wisdom.
A really well structured workshop with a variety of focuses within the overall arch of positive thinking. It was a very conscientious space, welcoming and clear in the intentions and the different contributions. I particularly liked the breathing, physical focus element.
This was an exceptional retreat. A well-organised programme with thoughtful content and a fantastic opportunity to connect with likeminded individuals looking to improve themselves via meditation, conversation and workshopping. I highly recommend the We Create Space team and I look forward to attending more events in the future.
A great session that provided a unique opportunity for those who identify as LGBTQ+ to come together, support each other, share stories and learn from the facilitators. I personally found the session a valuable use of my time and would highly recommend to others.
Wow! I’ve attended several free workshops from We Create Space but this one was special and it impacted more than I was expecting! The exercises we did triggered questions and thoughts that were deep but so much needed. It allowed me to reconnect with my past self to understand better how it shaped me. I committed to explore this further as I realized there seems to be much more to unpack. I’m so grateful I got to realize this thanks to this workshop. I also got the chance to authentically connect with like minded people from diverse backgrounds. A unique experience I strongly recommend!

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!
