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."

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 far exceeded any other speaker I’ve encountered

I highly recommend Jan Phillips
"Jan was the keynote speaker at our annual convention and I was absolutely captivated with her presentation. Being in a profession that is all about the nuts and bolts of testing, evaluating and meeting governmental guidelines, Jan inspired the audience with her inspirational words and ideas. She made great use of stories to illustrate her points and engage the audience in her ideas. She challenged us to create an image of what we want to accomplish and that image itself becomes motivating on its own. Her ideas on creating balance in our life utilizing the mental, physical, emotional and spiritual sides of ourselves was just the sort of speech that we needed to get our convention off to a rousing start. It was both educational to the mind and nourishing to the soul. I highly recommend Jan Phillips as a speaker for your organization's event."

I feel free enough to dance and sing and praise God
"Dearest Sister of my soul Jan, The cover of your book Marry Your Muse says it all—that’s exactly how I feel after your wonderful retreat. I feel free enough to dance and sing and praise God in my own little way. I can never thank God enough for you! I really feel joyful and I thank you for that and for all I’ll still get out of the best retreat I’ve made in 79 years."
