You are truly a gift in my life

"I have been laid up for three weeks with four herniated disks. My healing of the weeks was your CD played in the Spring in Cleveland at Chardon with the Sisters of Notre Dame. I am also loving your book on Original Thinking...You are truly a gift in my life and I hardly know you. Thanks for the gift you are!!"

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."

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."

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."

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’s workshop was ideal for me.

“Jan's workshop was ideal for me. I knew I loved photography but feared what I didn't know. I gained confidence in practical information with lots of experiential learning. Even better, I was deeply inspired with possibilities for the future. I am grateful for Jan's extraordinary knowledge, creativity, and encouragement.”
