Testimonials


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."

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

Jan Phillips gave me food and fire for my passion like I’ve never had before.

"In one weekend, Jan Phillips gave me food and fire for my passion like I’ve never had before. I see real and viable ways to change my work and live closer to the life I want. I am transformed, enlivened and profoundly hopeful. I will be making my income in a different way than I was before this seminar. My spirit, heart and brain kept firing all weekend giving me confidence and content for groups and presentations. I also have the know-how now to market and bring my gifts to the people who need what I teach. To anyone considering this workshop: Don’t wait! You can get started NOW to get your new life launched."

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."

Jan’s facilitator training… moves you into the next level of awareness

"Jan's facilitator training is more than learning how to formulate a plan to run your own workshop. It moves you into the next level of awareness, by learning to facilitate your own life. To drill down and learn how to communicate that vision to the most important person of all….yourself.
