Welcome to Creative Explorations! During a period of partial sabbatical, I welcome Theresa Sapunar who will be functioning as the primary retreat facilitator. As a seasoned colleague with extensive retreat facilitation experience, Theresa brings new approaches to your Creative Explorations retreat.
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
Creative Explorations Womens Retreat is both a process and a place. It is a beautiful, sacred space where you can choose to receive professional facilitation services, or be self-directed. 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, the facility is entirely yours, unless you wish to share your experience with one or two friends. Centered in the heart of Yellow Springs, Ohio, Creative Explorations provides a unique opportunity to replenish and nurture yourself.
The retreat is located between Cincinnati and Columbus, Ohio, and is readily drivable from anywhere in the tri-state area of Ohio (OH), Kentucky (KY), and Indiana (IN). For those traveling by plane, Dayton International Airport is a mere thirty minutes away.
Who are you? … Your roles?… Possessions? … Personality?
The pressure of daily life can send us whirling in conflicting directions.
What do you really seek? . Peace? … Clarity? … Purpose?
Come away. . . .
- Relax into a beautiful space of stillness. Silence the usual noise, release expectations and be at ease.
- Reconnect with your Inner Being, Intuitive Guidance, Spiritual Self.
- Renew your appreciation for the workings of Divinity.
Return . . . . to more consciously and graciously inhabit your life.
Introducing Jenny Horner, your retreat facilitator (Please note….. It is expected that through November, 2015, I will be on partial sabbatical. Most facilitated retreats will be conducted by Theresa.)
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.
