What has ‘lit up’ for me throughout this workshop was the courage to slowly shed my identity coat, to begin to realize that this coat is but an outer shell, not who I truly am deep within. That person is a girl who is willing to look beyond the parameters of her own altered perception and to start to witness not only the beauty of life, but also the beauty of who I am and the woman I am becoming. It has awakened within me a deep sense of purpose that I am now hungry to fulfill. In discovering my inner Panther, it has brought a burning need to help other broken, hurting souls to find the path to their own healing and enlightenment.  ~Teri

This little book and the practice of Gestalt along with the Enneagram allow me to explore the Real Me, Mia in her fullness!!! Hear me roar world…  ~Mia

My awareness of myself has grown so much that I hardly know where it has come from. I feel my life has been rescued.  ~Candace

Lioness has brought an opening to my spirit –an inner sense that I felt I had lost and would never get back… Her teaching has made me feel and know I am still human with a heart thriving and hopeful.

They need to be aware that there is still hope, whether it is here, or out of here…  ~Trinia

I kept remembering the Panther’s words, “You can wake up and choose your own path, even here.” This has been my touchstone, my transformational mantra, my key to surrender. Even here, even me, even now… I can find my way home. Because, as the great poet Rumi wrote, “What you seek is seeking you.”  ~Judith

"When did you know that we weren't on the margins but at the center?" The question felt poignant. It came from one of the women in our LiT-uPP core group as she looked up from reading a book that held a chapter on The Lioness Tale Prison Project. I knew the lines she was referring to because I had written them...
