This was my second experience with create space. I love this platform Which brings together people from the LGBTQ community allowing them to feel safe, open and free to explore much needed aspects of Self. As well as the communities we are apart of. I highly recommend others to give these workshops a go. I feel very fortunate I did and that I have found out about create Space. Thanks guys

Such an emotional and unique workshop. Definitely felt connected to those who attended. Thank you so much to the facilitators as always!
By Adam J for I See You, I See Me | Free Workshop | 17 Apr 2021 on 19 Apr, 2021
Breath-taking is what it is to be so inspired by a group of talented diverse individuals that leaves an echo of inspiration of hope. Family is where you feel the most appreciation and love, this workshop session felt as a family reunion. Not only did I feel safe, but everyone respected each other distinct views regardless of ethnicity or location. There were so many things that I could had done with my time on a Saturday morning but through the mediation, stories, various voices I learned to find my own inner-self. I learned not to be afraid to be just me and to be comfortable within my own skin and identity. We let so many people define who we are; instead of us going on that spiritual journey to discover our "best" self. These workshops are worth every second, a powerful uplifting sensational revealing of healing, hope, and the betterment of one's self.

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!
