Testimonials from guests who experienced facilitation services with Jenny:

“My soul has been yearning for this experience. I am grateful for the insights and awakenings I have experienced in this sacred space. You have a true gift to connect with another soul and guide along the way – going with the flow of spontaneity, creativity and synchronicity.” – Ami
 
I felt so blessed to be in this sacred, comforting space. The retreat is very clean and meticulously organized with personal touches that make it feel like a haven for restoration and peace. The facilitation process was truly eye-opening. I accessed a part of myself that I didn’t realize I had. I am so grateful for Jenny’s support, patience, kindness and care. She gently encouraged me to deeply explore my inner self. She allowed me to discover my creative side and access many feelings. Jenny is an excellent listener who was so genuine, it touched my heart. I felt so understood! After my retreat, I felt restored and ready to continue facing my life.” – Monika
“Words just can’t express how appreciative I am for you and your cozy retreat home. It was exactly what I needed. Thanks for your time and talents. You are such a blessing – Kelly
 

“This retreat was more than I ever could have hoped for! Thank you so much for creating this beautiful, rich and open space! I so enjoyed our group time and one on one session. Thank you for helping me bring important things to consciousness! You have helped me more than you know! – Sherry

 

“Jenny was fully available to all that was birthing within. It wasn’t just the one-on-one sessions, but also her presence during my entire time while in Yellow Springs. She was flexible with the timing of events and even went out of her way to provide requested resources. Jenny’s facilitation isn’t a job, but a ministry that radiates from her presence.” – Therese

 

“Oh! to be encouraged to tap into my creativity again and to receive confirmation! Using a variety of her skills Jenny gently nudges you to new awareness. … What a beautiful retreat! A space that hugs you!” – Sally

 
“I enjoyed the creative facilitation process the most. I learned more about myself in those few hours than I did in months of counseling!” – P.C.
 
“We scratched the surface and found some good stuff to work with! I got the feeling that you really know a lot, but are careful to share enough to get me engaged with the ideas so that I may pursue them on my own. You create a supportive environment for dialogue.”  – Jeanette
 
“I was a mess when I got here. Seriously! The two sessions with Jenny really helped me focus on me instead of being so scattered and outer-focused that I was freaking out! I feel GREAT! Jenny really listened to me, remembered things I said and helped me pull things together to make sense of things and see a bigger picture.” – Elissa
 
“It is a little scary to think about disconnecting from the world – cell phone off, no computer, no TV, time just to be alone , but once you get going, it’s really not too hard! I enjoyed the balance of self-indulgence (massage) and work, and the freedom to explore my feelings.” – Linda
 
“This retreat was very good! I sometimes feel like we are pulling a splinter out of my heart. I know it will hurt, but afterwards, I will feel better and start to heal. After having done counseling for years, I can always be sure to get the results here in a few hours that take years in therapy.” – Jill  (returning guest)
 

“I appreciated that you went with the flow . You did a good job of picking up on what we needed!”  – Jan

“I visited an island this weekend. One that was filled with love, a soothing spiritual force, and peace as if coming home. You, within this safe haven you have created, allowed me to look at the past and look into the future, all while living in the moment. You have given me the gifts of hope, clarity and choice of direction. Thank you for sharing this sacred place.”  – Sally
 

“You have given me a lot of springboards for my own personal exploration. Things I would not have been inclined to try on my own. Jenny, you were very open and caring – listening and questioning, but not judging.” – Linda

 

“My expectations were surpassed and I so enjoyed eveything about the time spent here. I feel renewed and ready to go back into my chaotic space in the world.”  – Nancy

 
“Thank you for an extremely positive and centering few days. I liked having the two sessions over two days with lots of opportunity to explore on my own. The meditation room provides a way to start, end or spend the day being quiet. I loved the freedom to accomplish my set goals . or not! . to come and go in a very safe, nurturing environment. ” – Daniella
 

“The creative facilitation session with the pastels was such a simple task,but it really opened my eyes! Our “old stories” ritual was great and very moving … You are a wonderful, patient listener! very thoughtful, non-judgmental and non-prescriptive. You really facilitated our discoveries. Thank you!” – Cassie and Cindy

 

“What a pleasure it was to meet you! You have to be one of the most comfortable people to be with, almost like an instant friend whom I have known all of my life! You made me feel so comfortable, you managed to listen without any judgment, you lead and inspire in such a gentle way, and let me make my own conclusions based on my own work… I can tell you have years of practice, experience in being supportive, gentle and your insights are marvelous.” – Deborah
