Clarity, confidence and delight is waiting for you!
Join me for a few days away to reconnect, recharge and be re-inspired at an intimate Retreat for Women with like-minded peers.
Women typically choose to come on retreats for two broad reasons:
- The first is all about exploring the next step for you, redefining who you are at this stage of your life, and aligning who you are with what you want to do now. These are exploratory experiences, with a focus on harvesting your past for gold, identifying your strengths and values, and developing a new vision and the confidence to create a path to move towards it. This is often a business or career recalibration or reinvention.
- The second is when they have a specific project in mind that they just cannot find the space and time to bring to life or the support to develop and tackle it. An online course, website copy, a book outline, an event agenda or a business recalibration, are just some of the examples women have brought to these escapes.
For you, there may be just a small change you want to bring to life...
Coming on a retreat gives you time, space and support
Pause for a moment and imagine...
- Spending 3 days away in a beautiful house with a small group of women as you work intentionally on your next chapter
- Being deeply supported and nurtured as you sift through all of your ideas and commit to a clear path forward
- Reconnecting to your values, strengths, interests and desires and ensuring they are aligned with what you are doing or are intending to do
- Increasing your courage and confidence as you anchor yourself in self-worth
- Feeling inspired, energised, uplifted and enthusiastic about what’s possible
- Enjoying great food and conversations
- Indulging in bodywork - massage, yoga, reflexology - there are always special experiences on these retreats
Spending time with like-minded people who can help you to relax and reflect before you extract clarity from your ideas, create a plan and work out the action steps to take is worth its weight in gold.

These retreats are intimate experiences
I take just 4-6 women away to a gorgeous location in a beautiful private house where we work on Your Next Chapter.
You'll step away from the day-to-day demands of your business, career, and family - all the responsibilities of life to enjoy fresh perspectives and frank discussions in an atmosphere that both supports and stretches you.
Fuelled by fresh input and insights from other women and myself, you will leave fully reinvigorated and enthused again.

I'm Angela Raspass
I’m known for my honesty and wholehearted approach, a blend of strategy, self-worth and intuition as I combine my years of self-employment with an equal depth of personal development and study across neuroscience, positive psychology, acceptance commitment therapy and so much more.
Like you, I am a mosaic! My blend includes being a wife, mother, business owner, a life-long learner with a recent neurodiverse brain diagnosis (that explains SO much and is dynamically influencing my own next chapter) and a 16-year (so far) sobriety journey that fuels my self-worth reconnection and fascination.
I'll wrap you in unwavering strategic and emotional support as you develop a Next Chapter that blends contribution, fulfilment and financial reward, that feels purposeful and deeply satisfying. It looks different for everyone, so there are no right ways of approaching this stage of your life. Rather there is self-awareness to gain, ideas to explore, permission to give yourself and tools to help.
I believe Next Chapters are built on skinned knees and that your unique story and experiences have the ability to help others shorten and sweeten their own journey.
You can borrow my belief in you until you fully embrace your own...
I know what it's like to pivot & deepen
I’ve been successfully self-employed since 2003 when I launched my Marketing Consultancy after a “pre-children” corporate career in sales, marketing, sponsorships and events. I grew this one-women at the dining room table at home job into a 4-person team with clients in three states and a multiple six-figure turnover.
Things were going well, the trappings of success were all in place. But after quite a few years, I felt that yearning for change. For a life beyond straight business and marketing strategy. I entertained the idea for months and almost turned myself inside out trying to consider all angles and potentials inside my own head. I went through the stages of doubting both my sanity and my ability to begin again.
And as much as I love my entrepreneurial husband, he just didn’t quite get my desire for fulfilment, this need for my business to deliver that feeling to me.
Other women understood my desire for fulfilment.
It took some searching questions from a number of “Belief Buddies” – like-minded women similar to me, to open a new door of possibility for me. I finally made the leap in 2012 into a new business model that utilises my skills, but also fully engages my heart. Now I feel I'm on purpose, aligned and fulfilled.
And I know you want this too.
A thoughtfully designed retreat provides an environment where you can step away from the day-to-day demands and distractions to consider your options in an inspiring atmosphere.
I understand the value and magic that’s released when you bring together like-minded women who are all focused on expansion and are happy to share insights, experiences, and feedback.
Together, we'll explore expanding your possibilities, developing a clear new vision and creating the proactive strategies that will bring your new goals to life.
What are the next steps to come on retreat with me?
Once you've completed the Retreat Expression of Interest at the base of this page, we'll connect for a discussion to see which experience is the best fit for you - a Next Chapter or a Project Retreat.
A pre-retreat group call for us to understand where you are at in your business and life and where you feel you’d like to focus and expand – you’ll get to meet your fellow Next Chapter women and understand their goals as well. This call allows me to design an agenda that best meets the needs of each unique Retreat Group.
Come away with me! Spend 3 nights together in a gorgeous home where you’ll experience personal mentoring, group brainstorming sessions, planning, and accountability weaved together into an experience that supports and stretches you and ensures you leave with the outcomes most important to you.
Reconnect as a group again a week after the retreat to check-in and ensure you maintain the momentum of the experience and your courage, conviction, and commitment to turn your ideas into action.
What else do you need to know about this Retreat?
Meals and Catering
Lunches and dinners are a mix of in-house catering and visits to local restaurants and are included in your Retreat fee – alcohol is to be purchased at your own expense. We usually have a full kitchen at the retreat venues.
I bring snacks - almonds, grapes, dips, biscuits and still and sparkling water. Please bring anything else you’d like to drink or nibble on whilst we’re there.
If you have any special dietary needs, let me know at least 1 week prior to the Retreat so I can plan accordingly for our meals.
What to bring
Comfortable clothes for lounging, plenty of paper/a journal for writing, pens and felt tips if you prefer. You can choose to write on your laptop if you prefer.
I’ve consistently found that prior exposure to your fellow participants' goals and selves enriches your experience and helps you to clarify your own thoughts and goals, so in addition to our pre-retreat call, a background questionnaire will be sent for completion and shared with your fellow Retreat participants.
Yes! I'd like to join you at a Next Chapter Retreat
P.S If you're ready to uplevel yourself and your business now, this experience will provide you with clarity, confidence and a plan of action. Join us!
Getting away from the house and office enabled me to immerse myself in the process of dissecting my business and moving towards improving it, without the distractions of everyday life. I got the jump-start I needed as well as a renewed focus on what the next important steps are and I recommend this experience for women who are stuck with their business and need direction and focus to get back on track.
I’d been following Angela Raspass for three years before we started working together. Her messages and her vibe resonated with me, and I felt like one of her people long before we’d spoken a word to each other. She encouraged me that there is a way to do business that fits with my personality.
I left the retreat feeling energised, more clarity about my target audience and business model, alongside an action plan for the next 3 months and highly recommend taking the time away and investing in yourself. As leaders of our businesses we need to put time into strategic thinking and Angela is a wonderful support to help you get the outcomes you need to take your business forward.
I had been following Angela for a while and was at a crossroads in my business when the opportunity for the retreat with Angela came up.
I knew I wanted to make a pivot in my business but was struggling to get clarity around what that pivot would look like and how to do the pivot in a planned way
You have an amazing ability to unpick and drill down into our beliefs and goals to make sure we are really on the right track to being happy and designing our business the right way to achieve our goals. That’s why I’m coming away from the retreat full of confidence and practical strategies to really improve my business and life.
