Visible Transitions has helped me grow into the person I want to become…

I now often do things out of my comfort zone and have a deeper trust in life.

Visible Transitions has helped me grow into the person I want to become, braver and more confident with myself.

Having a visual representation of my progress through photography vastly helps me see how much I’ve grown in such a short amount of time. I highly recommend this enjoyable program to anyone challenged in transition.

“I whole-heartedly endorse
Janet and her program…”

I am writing to tell my dear friends that I had the pleasure of watching Janet and one of her students do a presentation of her program. I was overcome with joy watching as the young student presenter unconsciously “manifested an aspect of the program,” the further she got into her material. By presentations conclusion, the young shy student that walked to the podium had bewitched the lot of us who were lucky enough to be in the hall.

I whole-heartedly endorse Janet and her program and know it would be a loss for our children of today – maybe, some of our leaders of tomorrow, if this program were to close due to lack of funding. The work she’s doing with the youth is extremely important. They get to see their measurable results and nothing could be more healing and powerful than that!”

Janet provided me with a
new way of looking at my life…

Janet provided me with a new way of looking at my life and how I live in my professional self.

Not one for the normal espousing of career coach mumbo jumbo, Janet worked with me to bring me to the conclusions and understanding of self awareness, challenge and purpose on my own, yielding a far more effective result than a checklist of do’s and don’ts.

She is direct, effective and challenging. Recommended. Learn the power of yes!

We highly recommend her…

We asked Janet Caliri to conduct a seminar series across 6 weeks with some of our program participants who have developmental disabilities as well as other complex special needs.

We certainly don’t regret it and we certainly won’t forget it!

Recognizing and appreciating each person’s unique depth and potential, Janet created an experience that was both very powerful and very comfortable, and she did so quite elegantly. We highly recommend her, only lamenting that as a verb, “recommend” hardly seems sufficiently dynamic.

…gave me insight into how to better approach my relationship
with their mother…

After my two children participated in Janet’s photo walkabouts, I noticed a difference in how they related to situations that they feared, judged or condemned. For example, their mother and I split up about a year ago, and I witnessed them capturing photos in nature that represented their unspoken angst and desire for amicable interactions between the family and especially between us parents.

Their artistic use of the camera through the modality of Visible Transitions gave me insight into how to better approach my relationship with their mother.

I sincerely feel better
equipped and empowered…

Your method was especially awesome, as it held for me an example of the grace, ease, lightness and fun that can remedy our wounds. I sincerely feel better equipped and empowered to “Master my Mojo” declaring “I Am a Shameless Lover for Truth, Freedom and Sovereignty! Thank You so much!

Thank You so much!

A simple process, a successful result…

I recently was in a life transition involving a health issue of someone dear to me. Janet presented a simple method of taking a photograph of the primary trigger for my concern. I reflected on this object for some moments while replacing the old thought pattern with a new, realistic version.

I was successful in creating a positive outcome through this process. This resulted in neutralizing the situation for all parties involved. A simple process, a successful result and all done with genuine kindness and love.

Thank you Janet!

Janet’s program reconnected me
to my joy at learning in a group…

Attending Janet’s ‘Joyful Transitions’ workshop was a way for me to celebrate the completion of a project that had kept me indoors and isolated. I wanted to learn more about something I love doing, photography.

Janet’s program reconnected me to my joy at learning in a group, and gave me a fun new way of using the process of taking pictures for self-illumination.

…(the) workshop was worth
every single minute and penny invested!

Janet Caliri’s workshop was worth every single minute and penny invested! I realized my values and what’s important to work towards in life. That’s a wonderful gift. The photographic methodology mirrored the effect I have on people when I’m face to face with them.
