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.”

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."

Rev. Melanie Burns, Spiritual Director Esprit Center for Inspired Living, Religious Science Naples Florida March 13, 2016

The classroom atmosphere was electric!

Thank you so much for your breaking open of your life and spirit

"Dear Jan- I'm a Wheaton Franciscan Sister (Illinois) who was introduced to you through your music (which I have used in giving retreats). As someone who is now involved in formation ministry and spiritual companioning/ pastoral counseling, I find you are one of my companions who nourish me spiritually. Thank you so much for your breaking open of your life and spirit with me so many others."
