Jan was creative and engaging beyond our expectations

"We invited Jan Phillips to coordinate ritual at our General Chapter. Jan was creative and engaging beyond our expectations. She impacted the climate in a positive way - was forthright, confident, respectful of the group and cut across boundaries. We were inspired by her ability to touch at a deeper core. Jan became one of us and everyone connected with the process. It is hard to imagine ever having another Congregation gathering without Jan."

Discovering Jan has been an experience of being ‘mused’

"Jan Phillips, woman, artist, former sister, teacher, and muse, brings all of these experiences into her writing, and personal workshops. 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'."
