A Map for Feminine Pathwork

Feminine Pathwork is the learning journey to authenticity and becoming.   For women, this means moving away from the prescribed roles and limitations defined by society, and towards living from and expressing the desires of her soul.  We no longer look to the status quo to find our path of becoming, rather we look within ourselves for the unique perspectives, gifts, and talents we have to offer.

Pathwork allows us to bring alignment between our inner and outer lives.

The Women Connected Journey Wheel, provides a map for us to make this journey from the outer world of roles and expectations, into the inner world where we resolve our identity conflicts.

We can be projected into the journey by an external change like the death of a loved one, having a baby, changing jobs, illness, empty nesting, letting go of an outlived chapter of life, and even with the elements of nature.

These external events create an opening to the inner world – our psychology and spirit – where we have the choice to do our Pathwork and reorient and redefine ourselves.

In Pathwork Coaching, Terri supports you through the full-cycle so that the event in the outer world is given the time and resources needed to reorient in your inner world.

3 Stages of Transition:

REALIZING:  We are waking up that the change is really happening.   We recognize that the ways of the old self are no longer useful in our current life.  It is in this stage that we are often looking for a coach, mentor, or other kind of guide who can support us.

RELEASING:  In the second stage of the journey we are in “the gap” between the old self and the transformed self.  It is the liminal stage where we meet the Shadow Self.  This period is marked by ambiguity, confusion, reorienting, and being patient with paradox.  It is also a time of deeper realization, restoration, and healing.  You begin to experiment with new approaches and mindfully observe yourself as work through new habits and ways of being.  It is here, in the rich inner world, that the work of shifting your narratives occurs.

RECLAIMING:  The new self emerges as we consolidate what we have learned. We emerge from the inner world of transformation to the outer world of implementation.

We approach the inner and outer world with unique tools.

We operate in the outer world using goal setting, planning, managing, and sustaining.

We explore the inner world with metaphors, narratives, mindfulness, self-observation, polarities, intentions, and the healing arts.

    Jada Black Professional Certified Coach & HR Leader
  • Terri balances intuition, strategy, compassion, and accountability. Her coaching accelerated my professional and personal growth, and resulted in a promotion and a new job opportunity that I don't think I would have been qualified for prior to our work together. A year later, I still use the frameworks, tips and best practices she shared and have imparted many to my own team. Thank you!
