Welcome to Creative Explorations
Creative Explorations Womens Retreat is both a process and a place. It is a beautiful, “sacred space” located in the heart of Yellow Springs, Ohio. This retreat for women of all ages serves the needs of those seeking to relax the body and mind and reconnect to their guiding spiritual center. As a private retreat, when you come to replenish, you have the facility entirely to yourself, unless you choose to share your experience with one or two friends. Creative Explorations gives you the unique opportunity to be in nurturing solitude.
Who are you? … Your roles?… Possessions? … Personality?
What do you really seek? . Peace? … Clarity? … Purpose?
Come away. . . .
Return . . . . to more consciously and graciously inhabit your life.

“What a wonderful experience! The physical space feels like a hug and Jenny’s gentle way of nudging toward awareness and growth was such a gift. I take a part of all the experiences of these last days toward a future filled with more and more of the simple pleasures and joys of life. How grateful I am!” Sally
“I loved that things learned in the facilitation appeared so effortlessly and yet provided a brilliant focal point for the rest of my retreat. Jenny has a great talent in balancing her guidance with whatever the moment brings. Nothing is ever forced. This was a fantastic experience, and just what I needed!” Meghan

Introducing Jenny Horner, your retreat facilitator:
I am Jenny Horner, a licensed independent social worker, and your guide in the retreat experience. As an artist, I am fascinated by all things creative and deeply respect the power of the imagination and the richness of symbols. As a spiritual inquirer, I am always open to the marvelous and mysterious workings of the Divine. My creative disposition and training allow me to be spontaneous and present while using sensitivity and gentleness as my primary guideposts.
An attitude of non-judgment and creative resourcefulness is brought into each session as together we explore the deeper meanings of your unique human experience. Each retreat is an empowering process of self-discovery. I do not have pre-programmed agendas, but focus instead on establishing a safe, structured and often “playful” environment where issues, interests and concerns are explored from fresh angles. Many women approach a retreat as a spiritual process and delight at the recognition of the insight and wisdom that lies within.
Erich Fromm said, “Creativity requires the courage to let go of certainties.” My intention is to offer a sacred haven for your own discovery process. Some retreatants leave with greater peace about their pasts. Some leave with greater hope for their future. A Creative Explorations retreat can offer you an important stepping stone on the journey through life. Come, deepen your acquaintance with your Divine Self and experience restoration of body, mind and spirit.
