Loretta welcomes remarkable woman to discuss an incredible journey


Jan Phillips’ quest has taken her into and out of a religious convent, across the country on a Honda motorcycle, and around the world on a one-woman peace pilgrimage. Born gay, she became a social activist in response to the homophobia she felt even as a young girl. She entered the convent at age 18 because it was her 6th grade nun who saved her from suicide.

Jan guests on The Original Loretta Brown Show, Thursday, October 21st at 8 a.m. (repeats Monday, October 25ht at 6 a.m.). 

Jan is the author of 11 award-winning books and a thought leader who connects the dots between spiritual intelligence, evolutionary creativity, and social transformation. She has taught in over 25 countries, and has published work in the New York Times, Ms., Newsday, People, Parade Magazine, Christian Science Monitor, New Age Journal, National Catholic Reporter, Sun Magazine, and Utne Reader.  We will be discussing her new book Still on Fire: Field Notes from a Queer Mystic.

She has performed with Pete Seeger, presented with Jane Goodall, sung to Gladys Knight, and worked for Mother Teresa. Her books have been endorsed by Bishop John Shelby Spong, Ervin László, Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi , Richard Rohr, Diarmuid O’Murchu, Gloria Steinem, Jean Houston, Barbara Marx Hubbard, Brian Tracy, and Ken Blanchard.

Loretta Brown, Host

Loretta Brown, owner of Reiki Oasis, has been practicing and teaching Reiki Energy Medicine, sound healing, intuitive Guidance, past life regression, meditation and psychic development since 1995. Born as a sensitive, Loretta always felt at home among the concepts of angels, spirits, fairies, energies, vibration, sound, music, devas, goddesses and God. However, it took years for her to understand not everyone had these gifts, and to figure out how to use them to help others navigate their lives in a more positive way. Now, she is dedicated to helping everyone discover their own gifts, resonate from the very center of their Being and live the joy-filled life they were meant to live. Loretta has traveled the world extensively, teaching and performing internationally, has studied with great spiritual teachers, and has spent years chanting, searching for truths, visiting sacred sites and learning the great mysteries. Her joy is sharing as a Teacher, Channel and Healer so you can renew, refresh, and re-member who you really are and why you are on the planet at this time. Loretta also offers Crystal Bowl Healing Concerts, Loretta offers in person one-on-one sessions, as well as workshops, skype and phone sessions. Find out more about her at
