  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.

  1. I stumbled across the Creative Explorations website while I was researching ideas about how to celebrate mother's day. As I began reading Jenny's words and seeing the photos, I felt called to experience this retreat and also to invite my mom to join me. However, having never done anything like it before, I felt somewhat outside of my comfort zone and unsure about what I was getting us into. But we decided to listen to that encouraging voice within which we sometimes forget to trust.
    And, I tell you, it was the loveliest and most nurturing, insightful, powerful two days we've ever spent together. We got to know Jenny, who with much love and much understanding, helped us get to know each other and also OURSELVES in a far deeper way.
    If you are reading this, and you are feeling a pull to explore this experience, I encourage you to trust your intuition.

  1. I agree with the analogy that it is like a splinter being taken out of my heart. Jenny has been a great help through intense moments in my life when I needed a "helping hand " with some of life's problems. She is very intuitive and goes right to the center of the issue. The quiet times between sessions is a great time to reflect and think over what has been brought to the surface. Thank goodness Jenny is there when I need her!

 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.
