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."
Sister Mary Elise OSF Williamsville, NY March 10, 2016
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."

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'."

Jan’s facilitator training… moves you into the next level of awareness
"Jan's facilitator training is more than learning how to formulate a plan to run your own workshop. It moves you into the next level of awareness, by learning to facilitate your own life. To drill down and learn how to communicate that vision to the most important person of all….yourself.
Lynn Croghan, Omaha March 14, 2016
It was an incredible presentation
"I was personally touched most by your ability to blend story-telling, humor and the arts to help participants regain a healthy sense of themselves. It was an incredible presentation and I look forward to having you back again!"

Time spent with Jan Phillips is transformative
"Time spent with Jan Phillips is transformative. In whatever context, Jan’s breath of wisdom, open heartedness and commitment to world service ignites the souls of those who have the good fortune to be in her presence. Her visionary thinking, humor, spontaneity, and expanded consciousness catalyzes an embodiment of our own soul/personal potential. Jan models the change for good that is now.”

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."
