Peter Hyson and Hilary Rowland, Co-Founders of Next Chapter Retreats, husband and wife and business partners, met online twenty years ago and soon found themselves saying, ‘One day we’ll be running retreats together’ without having any idea what that would involve.
Something about their lives and their approach gave them an inkling that sharing what they have learned from their life experience would be useful to others. Both have been through divorces, multiple career changes, health crises – a heart attack and cancer. Peter has captured much of the learning from this in his book ‘Live the work you love’ which sets out a process for personal change. Oliver Wendell Holmes’ quote, ‘Most people die with their best music unplayed’ is both their philosophy of life and underpins their business.
Peter is now writing a series of cozy mystery stories. Hilary is a bit of a health nut and loves cooking and keeping fit with cycling, swimming and Pilates. Living in the Cotswolds provides them with plenty of opportunities to enjoy the outdoors and appreciate the joys of living in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
