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.”

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."
