Women Connected Stand
Through Coaching Programs, Online Courses, and Expressive Arts programs, Terri Altschul is teaching a paradigm that encourages women to collaborate rather than compete, to free their leadership capability, to trust other women rather than mistrust, and to honor and value themselves as much as they honor and value men.
We do this by healing our emotions, releasing inner glass ceilings that limit our potential and expression, and befriending and integrating our shadow parts.
Mantra: We stand stronger when we stand together
Coaching and Expressive Arts: Going Deeper Than Words
Expressive art is a complementary process to the traditional coaching conversation and the experience of healing and transformation. Through expressive arts, we incorporate the mind-body and the split-brain functioning into the coaching process. When used with coaching, expressive arts can help you release stress-producing emotions, get in touch with feelings, resolve conflicts, and give voice to your soul. Imagery is a language inherent in each individual and is the body-mind's first or primary means of inner communication.
Here are a few of the expressive arts modalities we incorporate into Women Connected programs:
- Women Connected Circles combine ancient practices of gathering and sharing with modern technology and social tools. The Circle is the container in which we come together to share our journeys. We use core practices and honor traditions based on the specific Circle program. Here we see and are seen. The Circle provides safety and mutual respect and it is a crucible for learning. Wherever you see the Women Connected Circle logo.
- Storytelling & Visual Narrative is a form of exploring self through image, word, symbol, metaphor, object and landscape. This form can help to identify one’s experience to story, history and intuitive knowing, unfolding new experience and perspective as the creative process unfolds.
- Mixed Media incorporates paint, collage, ephemera, photographic art and objects on paper and other surfaces. It can be approached in various forms and is a useful process to add layers, combining image and words.
- Collage Cards is a psycho-spiritual process of creating your own personal collages of wisdom cards that are reflections of light and shadow, parts of self, guides and influences, and invites you to explore your many facets of self and archetypal energies.
- Art/Visual Journaling offers a wonderful design to explore visual narrative and story while working with image, word art, collage, intuitive painting, art journaling and writing.
- Guided Visualization and Meditative Portals are valuable additions to the creative process and depth coaching. Bringing symbols into consciousness invites clarity, curiosity and perspective. Techniques that we offer include shamanic and contemplative journey process, and parts work; all of which may be incorporated into your art.
- Creative and Intuitive Writing/Voicing Practices will deepen your insight and understanding. Engaging in writing, journaling and poetics in written, voiced and gestalt dialogue forms of expression will complement your creative process. Working with prompts, dialogue and storytelling offers perspective and integration.

Working with Terri is engaging in honest, open, and meaningful conversations that expand and create a vision of what’s possible. I gave myself a wonderful gift when we started our mastermind, she’s a living proof of the power of women joining together in intentional conversations, supporting each others’ goals, and expecting the best of one another. I’ve heard her facilitating women’s groups and applaud the way she encourages amazing, purpose-seeking women to live the life of their dreams.
I sought out this program at a point in my life where I realized I needed to make a significant change of direction in my life and career. It was time to learn to contribute back to the greater good from my heart, not my head. Terri taught me to look deeply inside myself for the answers, and to trust who I am in my reinvention. Her valuable knowledge, training as a coach, but most of all, her compassion and personal authenticity made this an enriching process of personal growth for me, and allowed me to unhook from so many fears and insecurities that I had been carrying for too long!
Pleasing people is something I see almost every woman I know struggling with. That was my Achilles heel – until Terri came along! To me, EVERYTHING was personal, especially when there was no business involved. Now my phrase is;” it’s not personal, it’s just a difference in values.” (It makes much better sense!) I’m so honored to have met Terri! It warms my heart to see how much she cares about people. She inspired me to go after my dream. She gave me the tools to conquer it, and I can’t thank her enough!!!
