“Wonderful, safe, blessed night of fellowship and a remarkable new experience.  Much needed and much overdue for “sisters and sisterhood”.  So grateful that Dr. Angela M Grayson recognized this amazing opportunity and seized upon it.  But even greater than that, was my emotional experience seeing how my enduring friend Dr. Angela took a traumatic experience, matched it with a planted seed and birthed her dream from there and is using it to bless so many others.  I was moved to tears.  God is so good.  I’m overjoyed to see Dr.  Angela M Grayson flourish in her element.” ~ Sheronda W

Get ready to enjoy Rejuvenation, Re-Awakening, Creativity and an abundance of Fun at an exquisite escape in a secluded space with a small group of friendly, like-minded women.

Beautiful accommodations, delicious food and the loving care of your host, Dr. Angela M Grayson, also known as The Express Your Stress Doc, will make this an extravaganza to remember.

The Girlfriend Retreat is a great place to have fun with your friends while enhancing your life and just be you, guilt-free and unapologetically. Dr. Angela has a reputation for creating a very safe and sacred space for women to be authentic and connect on a deeper level, while having fun at the same time!

“Truly a blessed and amazing event. I enjoyed the girlfriend retreat enormously. I found the retreat to be powerful and refreshing.  I enjoyed the fellowship and sisterhood that was created with like-minded people. I felt safe and loved and Dr. Angela provided a safe protected environment. I learned during self reflection how I am as a person and what kind of friend I am to others. I have become more aware of the things I do and say due to the accountability that Dr. Angela encouraged us to maintain. I’m very grateful for the experience and definitely interested in hosting a Girlfriend Retreat Getaway.” ~ Kenitra W

It’s a beautiful thing to see black women encouraging and loving on one another instead of disrespecting one another. Thank you Dr. Angela for being obedient and putting this amazing event together! God bless y’all!! Can’t wait for the next one!” ~ NyKisha G
