Early on, Jan decided that having lots of careers would be more fun than just one (or
She carried her experience as a homemaker into becoming a systems
analyst, founding her own manufacturing company in 1988. Soon afterwards she came into consciousness around her spiritual
journey, completed her B.S. in Psychology and trained in massage therapy, Cranial Sacral, Polarity, Core Energetics©,
Somatic Experiencing©, Past Life Awareness and accessing Akashic records -- while also earning her commercial pilot’s
license and completing 8 years of Pathwork courses to become a Helper.
She is a voracious collector of films from all genres and uses them to illustrate and explore Pathwork concepts.
Jan'a perspective comes from “it took a long time for me to profoundly understand that spirit
can’t be known like science, physics or math. It took even longer to accept that I didn’t need
to control life, only to navigate it. We don’t follow the Plan of Salvation: we ARE the Plan."
"The conscious mind you express in your daily living is separated from the vast whole,
the universal mind, only by an illusory belief that you are separate. You do not possess an aspect of this universal mind,
you are not even a separated part of it. You are it."

She returned to the US in 2006 to live in Austin, Texas (www.pathworktexas.org
) before finally moving to Brooklyn, New York, in 2009 to help care for her granddaughter. She continues to serve clients
and students via email, telephone, and presentations posted on YouTube.com.
Under the leadership of David Schwerin of the Philadelphia Pathwork, she guest-lectured at 14 universities

"The point of studying Pathwork
is to help us become better human beings, which will then accelerate the task we came here to accomplish. While the Guide
says you can't do this work alone, I interpret that as an invitation to recognize that I am never alone. Family friends, social
groups, and work contacts all contribute my self-development. Pathwork helps me understand why an uncomfortable or unpleasant
situation is an opportunity: it can only expose negativity if it is already present within me. I may wish I didn't have to
do any work, I may be disappointed that I am not 'better than that'. I may go into defense about seeing a reality I don't
like. Yet at the very moment I allow myself to become aware of inner negativity, I simultaneously unleash my divine
positive intentionality to address it -- organically, at a pace of my own choosing" JR
Jan hosts a free weekly online meeting using video-teleconferencing software (also accessible
by phone). Participants are invited to share their experience of the lectures, and how they apply the concepts in their daily
lives. You may download the free monthly study guide from the 2015 Teleconference tab on this website. Details
about how the weekly meetings operate may be found at www.pathworksteps.org
Listen to (or download) an interview with Jan broadcast
March 2012 on WBAI, Pacifica Radio in New York City:
Play Pt 1: Personal Process
Play Pt 2: Applying the Concepts
The Pathwork lectures offer tools, techniques and concepts to support us during
the most painful phase of spiritual evolution -- awareness -- by explaining the incongruities and paradoxes between the unitive
and the earth plane. Understanding allows us to connect to inner knowing and our Real Self, our divine natural beingness.
Study Guides, audio and video files of online presentations may be downloaded at no
charge from this website. 17 full length presentations were uploaded to Youtube.com in 2013.
2014, Jan asked long-term 'self-study' Pathworkers to volunteer for free, first-time individual sessions that were recorded,
to give others an idea of how the concepts are applied to an individual's unique circumstances. These 5 recorded sessions
are available on YouTube.
Free monthly newsletters and weekly self-study guides are also available.
weekly teleconferences are held on Sundays at 7pm US EST.
