Jan has a amazing ability to touch the individual heart

"Jan has a amazing ability to touch the individual heart while at the same time being able to inspire the minds of the collective group to create,  motivate and organize. She midwifes Spirit-led passion and then guides the co-creative process between diverse parts (minds or communities) to manifest a new creation that expresses something greater than the sum of its parts.  It is something innovative and exciting; something that is a blessing to the world and all who are part of the creation. Simply, it is thrilling."

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.”
