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."

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."

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!"

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."

Discovering Jan has been an experience of being ‘mused’

"Jan Phillips, woman, artist, former sister, teacher, and muse, brings all of these experiences into her writing, and personal workshops. As Dominican Sister and as a working artist, I can resonate with the passion, energy and depth of spirituality that is exhibited in her writing and in her workshops. Discovering Jan has been an experience of being 'mused'."
