Reviews

Jan Phillips describes a spiritual path that is inward, cosmic, multi-faith and culturally diverse. This new pathway-- infused with unity, vitality and hope--will dominate the spiritual consciousness of the 21st century. --Diarmuid O'Murchu, author, "Evolutionary Faith"
Many of your customers have no religious affiliation, and more and more people are leaving traditional religious organizations everyday. It doesn't mean they're becoming less spiritual - just the opposite - but you already know that. You also know people are searching for a spiritual understanding and direction that suits their religious independence. Jan Phillips has written "Finding the On-Ramp" to help meet that need, employing the metaphor of a highway and its abrupt, mundane signage to describe the journey from religious dependence to personal spiritual authority and fulfillment. For example, she uses the familiar "Lane Ends" sign for the chapter in which she describes the moment when she, as a postulant intending to become a nun, began to take her spirituality into her own hands. Her writing is disarmingly simple and highly personal. While it contains in-depth information about the state of traditional religion and people's struggle to move beyond church walls, it is also lyrical, with an overall tone that carries the reader along with hopeful expectation and increasing faith in the possibility of finding spiritual growth without dogma and limitation. The book is a joy to read. --Anna Jedrziewski, Retailing Insight magazine, August-September 2013

Through story, poetry and her own spiritual journey, Jan's creative-mystical awareness invites our deep attention to the radical aliveness of a journey of the heart. She awakens us to the mystery of love guiding us through moments of synchronicity, novelty and resonant relationships. What does the next level of consciousness look like? This book inspires any seeker, evolutionary or spiritual pilgrim to walk in the freedom of love by discovering the truth of their deepest inner knowing. --Barbara Marx Hubbard, author and public speaker
With her usual enthusiasm and pluck, Phillips reflects upon mindfulness, faith, Infinite Mind, the grace of surrendering, miracles, the dead end of dualistic thinking, commitment, community, and much more. Philosopher Jacob Needleman has stated that group pondering may well be the art form of the future. Spiritual seekers relish getting together with others to share experiences and to come to grips with the mysteries of God and of the human adventure. Phillips has written a handy guide that these groups and individual seekers are bound to appreciate. --Frederic Brussat, Spirituality & Practice
"Finding the On-Ramp" provides yet another way to inspire readers to travel beyond the rules and structure of conventionality and organized religion that keep us powerless and dependent on external forces. Her prescribed route alerts us to our individual callings, and promises a destination where our true bliss can be found in following them - for the sake of our own fulfillment, and for a healthy society as well. --Margaret Placentra Johnston, Quest Magazine, Winter 2014
I love Jan's insight, guidance, and especially her stories. This book is like having tea with a spiritual mentor who I wish I had beside my when my own journey began. If you're at the on-ramp of yours, please let Jan drive for awhile. --Raphael Cushnir, author, "The One Thing Holding You Back" and "Surfing Your Inner Sea"
Not since reading Thomas Merton when I was a young seminarian have I been so deeply impressed by a book on spirituality. This is the book I would recommend to anyone wanting to explore and articulate a meaningful spirituality in the twenty-first century. --Michael Morwood, author of "Tomorrow's Catholic"
