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'."

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 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."

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."
