Below you can take a closer look at what we offer.


How are you really?


When did you last ask yourself that question? Last week, last year, last decade, ever?

Life these days is turbulent. Things have changed around us in ways we could never have anticipated. Some of it has been very uncomfortable, but there are other bits we’ve liked, and it has made us wonder whether this would be a good time to intentionally make some changes in our lives.

Are you happy, fulfilled and following the path you want to follow? How’s your health? Do you have the financial resources you need?

We are offering three one hour webinars to enable you to answer these questions and start on the road to making the changes you need and want to make. We’ll have health and financial planning experts guiding you towards answering some very important life questions and pointing out some of the warning signs that might lead you to considering a different path or a new chapter to your life.

At Next Chapter Retreats, we give you a blank sheet of paper and the time, space and attention to write your next chapter. Uncover. Create. Change.

To sign up for this webinar series please email Hilary to reserve your space.


In Stories we Exist

Located in the breath-taking-beautiful West coast of Ireland in Co Kerry, these 2 days provide so much more than simply 2 days away from the busy-ness and pressure.

After a reception and welcome meal, the first full day starts with a morning on Innisfallen Island where a local storyteller brings to life local folklore stories before free time to think, walk, and explore the forest and beach and Abbey Island.

We return to the Retreat Hotel after lunch, where Irish authors Christine Breen and Niall Williams share their insights into local Irish story-writing over drinks and supper.

The next day is devoted to examining the stories we tell about our own lives and the impact they have on us and those around us. What does this tell us about a crossroads we’re currently facing and how to find the way forward?

At Next Chapter Retreats, we give you a blank sheet of paper and the time, space and attention to write your next chapter.


Retire, Retread, Renew


This programme aims to help you know that you are following the path which is right and fulfilling for you and which will bring you most happiness. It is designed to give you the opportunity to dream and for anyone who wants to write their next chapter.

You’re in or have had a successful career, but feel the need to change. You might be experiencing:
General dissatisfaction.

Working from home during lockdown has opened your eyes to new possibilities. Career change has been forced on you and you feel unprepared. A feeling that what you’re doing has little purpose.

It’s time to reappraise your options and move to something different. We are offering a weekly programme of eight two-hour webinars designed to support you in thinking about making such a a change, to enable to you to feel positive about and committed to your options, formulate and implement an action plan.

These webinars will be led and facilitated by Hilary Rowland an experienced business consultant and coach.


5 Day Retreats


Split into an initial 3 days and then about 10 weeks later, a further 2 days, our flagship programme takes you beyond the crossroads from confusion to clarity. Starting with the stories we tell about ourselves and our past, we look at them to spot the trends and themes that will create our Next Chapter, that shows us at our best and most fulfilled. After some Preparation work, part 1 looks at what happens if we retell our stories from a different perspective and what that shows about our values and priorities when we’re at our best.

These helps create your LifeStoryCanvas, with the strands for your NextChapter. After some weeks for further thinking and planning, part 2 helps you write that Next Chapter and an action plan to help you live it.
