Testimonials


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!"

Your seminar changed my whole attitude about my work as a photographer

Jan’s workshop was ideal for me.

“Jan's workshop was ideal for me. I knew I loved photography but feared what I didn't know. I gained confidence in practical information with lots of experiential learning. Even better, I was deeply inspired with possibilities for the future. I am grateful for Jan's extraordinary knowledge, creativity, and encouragement.”

Expect the unexpected when you encounter Jan Phillips

"Expect the unexpected when you encounter Jan Phillips....Her varied skills, life experiences, and insights provides a foundation for creative change.  She is a master at listening to what you say, speaking her truth.  This in turn guides you to your truth, sometimes in unexpected ways!  Her sense of knowing, her humor, her photography and song, are gifts she willingly shares. The information I learned and the modeling I witnessed in her workshop has propelled me to reclaim my creative self, to share my wisdom, and to have fun in the process!"
