Creations regularly offers special events like lectures, classes, and multi-day retreats with nationally known instructors at The Main House. The multi-day retreats include overnight lodging. Our 2017 Retreats were a lot of fun and we look forward to more good times through 2018!
Our 2018 Retreat Schedule is now underway. The retreats are almost all full, but we still have seats left in two retreats (1 with Gail Garber and 3 with Karla Alexander – see below for details. ) We are still accepting a wait list for most of the other retreats, as noted in each description below.
Our retreats often fill up as soon as we announce them. So, if you are feeling left out because the retreat you want is already full, be sure to sign up for the Creations’ Newsletter so you can sign up as soon as we announce a retreat. (We’ve had to start announcing them via our email newsletter as soon as we get the teachers confirmed, because they post the retreat information on their own websites immediately.) As soon as we have a contract with a teacher, we send out an announcement with the instructor name, date and class description via our email newsletter. You will be the first to receive that news if you are on our email list.

2018 Retreat Schedule
We do have a few slots still open for our 2018 retreats and we continue to take a waiting list for the retreats that are full, so take a look at the listing below for the topics, dates, descriptions and number or seats left for our 2018 retreats. (If you’ve previously attended one of our retreats, don’t miss the 2018 UFO dates below the 2018 retreats info.)
If you are interested in one of the open slots, or in getting on a waiting list, please contact Julie Milam at 830-896-8088. We do not have online registration for these retreats.
The following details apply to all the 2018 Retreats:
Each retreat is 3 1/2 days. The cost is $695.00 + lodging tax, which includes the 3 1/2 days of class, 9 meals and 3 nights stay at The Main House. You may choose to come as a “day student” for $545.00 which includes everything except the overnight lodging.
For 2018 we have again added a leftover night to each of our retreats. Here’s how it works – if you are traveling a distance, you might want to spend one more night at The Main House to get a fresh start in the morning. The fee is $50.00 which includes leftovers from our meals and a good night’s sleep before you begin home.
We will charge your card a $150.00 deposit at the time of registration. We will charge the balance 60 days prior to the class and send the supply list at that time. If you cancel before the balance is charged, we will refund $100.00 in the form of a Creations’ Gift Card. If you cancel within the 60 days, we will refund to your credit card, the amount of the retreat, less $150.00. If you cancel within 15 days of the retreat, there is not a refund as the instructor has been paid.
