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!
