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."

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."
