Tiger Tales and Tea Parties

Are you feeling stuck, uncertain, unsupported, afraid of making a change, going in a new direction or feeling powerless?  Share, listen and learn new ways of seeing yourself and your world in a safe, nurturing group.  Awakening the Tiger Within inspired Joy to offer a Tiger Tales and Tea Party to provide a forum for heartfelt sharing, connecting with new and old friends and gaining personal insights.

When is the last time you heard tiger tales while sipping tea? Never? Well, come and join us for some great fun and meet the Tiger! Here’s the way it works. Joy supplies the tiger tales and tea. The tales relate to her book,  Awakening the Tiger Within: 9 Paths to Healing and Empowerment.  The focus for the party is acquainting you with your inner Tiger and having some fun.

You can attend as a guest or invite your friends and family to come to your home or other comfortable space.  As a hostess, you may choose one of several gifts as a “thank you” for opening your space to us. This is a perfect time to get a copy of this exciting book signed by the author. It’s also a great opportunity to pick up an extra book or two as a gift for someone special.
