  1. I can honestly say that I am feeling at peace in this moment. I haven't felt such calm in quite a while. It feels good and I will keep it and the experience of these last few days close to my heart. It is just what I needed to be able to continue on this path in a grounded and trusting way. Thank you for your generous offering of this space as well as sharing your gift of facilitation, direction and insight. I am so grateful to have met you, especially at this time in my life. May your work continue to touch the lives of many more women and may their lives be transformed.

  1. My friend/former coworker, D., and I spent a lovely, long weekend @ the retreat. We each had our own rooms and had space to interact or be in solitude. We were "self-directed." The retreat was clearly designed by a woman, for women. Aesthetically, it was an absolute delight. Jenny has an artistic eye and spared absolutely no details in creating a therapeutic and lovely environment. No corner was left untouched. Therapeutic modalities appealed to visual learners (magazines, books), auditory learners (CDs, nocturnal sound machine) and kinesthetic learners (instruments). I myself enjoyed reading in the meditation room and playing an instrument along to a wide selection of CDs. The external environment also fostered therapy. We received awesome massages at the Humanist Center and visited Young's Jersey Dairy for ice cream. We enjoyed local restaurants on the main street, as well as the shopping. If you're there on a Sat., I recommend the farmer's market across the street in the morning. A gas station, grocery store, ATM machine and drugstore are merely steps away from the retreat.

  1. I needed a calming solitary space in which to contemplate recent loss. The environment Jenny has provided was an excellent fit. I listened to healing music, read from the many books about personal growth, played various instruments she has provided, sat in the meditation room, and slept very well. It's a life-affirming place. Thank you Jenny.

 Introducing Jenny Horner, your retreat facilitator

I am Jenny Horner, a licensed independent social worker, and a 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.
