What We Stand For

At Women Connected, we stand for the extraordinary qualities and strengths of women.

Through Women Connected Circles, Online Courses, and Coaching programs, you will find the tools and resources to enable and empower you to:

  • challenge the status quo and predetermined expectations
  • release inherited patterns
  • heal our wounds
  • integrate the shadow parts 
  • create a values-driven life
  • focus on your inner world to drive change in the outer world
  • model, mentor and lead through your lived example.

We are teaching a paradigm that encourages women to collaborate rather than compete, to trust rather than mistrust, to honor and value the feminine aspects of themselves, and to teach this honoring to the next generation of women and men.

Our Mantra:  We Stand Stronger When We Stand Together

What We Believe

Mindfulness is Core to Self-Transformation

It takes courage to look at ourselves, and to release our protective armor and social comparison. When we do this we can bring our authenticity out into the world.

Inner Freedom Comes From Work With Self-As-Process

Our stories keep us hidden. However when we begin to work with ourselves as process, we are able to observe our stories and be more in the present moment.

Suffering Eases, Where Self-Acceptance Begins

We are here for a very meaningful experience. By turning inwards, we can gain powerful insights that lead to greater vitality and sovereignty.

About the Founder

terri altschul

Terri Altschul, PCC, Professional Integral Coach, Creative, and Founder, WomenConnected.net

I grew up and worked in a very male-oriented world. The oldest of four children and the only girl. All sons. A career on Wall Street. I was yearning for a deeper connection with what it meant to be an impactful woman leader while also expressing my own feminine nature.

I realized I was not alone in these feelings. That many women were looking to live a whole-hearted life but also felt constrained by society’s expectations. This realization was my tipping point for founding WomenConnected.net and Women Connected Circles.

  • Appreciation of Beauty and Excellence
  • Love of Learning
  • Spirituality
  • Creativity
  • Gratitude
