You are truly a gift in my life
"I have been laid up for three weeks with four herniated disks. My healing of the weeks was your CD played in the Spring in Cleveland at Chardon with the Sisters of Notre Dame. I am also loving your book on Original Thinking...You are truly a gift in my life and I hardly know you. Thanks for the gift you are!!"

What a great workshop
"I was a participant in the recent workshop that you presented for the Dominican Sisters in Columbus, OH. What a great workshop. Everybody was talking about it long after you left, saying how special it was. Thank you so much, Jan, for doing this kind of work. I hope that you felt as affirmed as we did as a result of your workshop."

The universal response to Jan’s day long presentation was so enthusiastic!
"The universal response to Jan's day long presentation of "The Word, The Image, The Story: Tools of Transformation was so enthusiastic! Jan is an inspirational speaker and leader who has the ability to engage and encourage others' creative processes. Through poetry, compelling images, stories, and invitations to explore one's own inner wealth of experience, she was able to draw out even those who were convinced they were not "creative"! The time she spent with us was too short!"

Discovering Jan has been an experience of being ‘mused’

As Dominican Sister and as a working artist, I can resonate with the passion, energy and depth of spirituality that is exhibited in her writing and in her workshops. Discovering Jan has been an experience of being 'mused'."

Jan Phillips is an extraordinarily creative, insightful, clear presenter
"Jan Phillips is an extraordinarily creative, insightful, clear presenter who can keep any audience riveted with mind-blowing facts and research, with colorful stories and anecdotes, and with wisdom garnered from diverse contexts around the world. She is unquestionably one of the best presenters I have experienced in my 25 years in higher education, and, on top of that, her presentations and workshops range across an incredible array of fascinating topics -- creativity, leadership, spirituality, entrepreneurship, original thinking, personal and social transformation, training, self-expression, photography. She can bring both meaningful learning and sincere joy to any university context. If you seek a speaker who can captivate your school, department, unit, or other university context, and also bring real, practical ideas that lead to satisfying transformation, you can't do better than Jan."
