Realizing Your Best Self

A 6-Month Positive Vibes Online Women's Circle | taught by Terri Altschul

Course description


"Female friendships that work are relationships in which women help each other belong to themselves."

--Louise Berkinow




Could you benefit from an engaged, supportive, positive-vibes only,

group of women who want YOU to be the best YOU possible?

Are you ready to raise your self-awareness, develop more self-care, and show compassion to ALL parts of yourself and others?

In REALIZING YOUR BEST SELF we come together in a Women Connected Coaching Circle - a small, GLOBAL, cross-generational, sacred gathering of women.

We have been created to realize the true nature of existence through our consciousness. The journeys in REALIZING YOUR BEST SELF help you unlayer, reconnect, and realize the true nature within you.

As we unlayer, we heal the stories and the woundings of our lives so that you can experience true freedom for social pressure, released from internal and external judgments, and letting go of attachments to ideas of "who you ought to be" instead of who you really are.

Each month we go on a new journey and delve into another aspect of ourselves. Through each cycle of a new journey, we practice the skills of transitions by allowing the unconscious to reveal itself, healing our woundings, integrating the lessons, and embracing new realizations and freedoms.

Throughout the program, we have intentional, purposeful conversations and the voice of each woman is held as sacred as we offer our encouragement, ideas, and personal stories. You will practice self-care and prioritize self-love. You will be mirrored, seen and heard (deeply important human needs) and be supported throughout the program by the Women of your Circle, Terri, and Russ.


Circle work is very different from a training course. A training course teaches you new knowledge or skills.

In Circle work, we both introduce new skills and knowledge AND we take a coaching approach. We provide you with creative tools to help you know yourself in a new way. We help you see hidden beliefs, internal and external roadblocks that are getting in your way. We support you to design an environment that reinforces the changes you want to bring forward. We work in the context of deeply engaged conversations which venture fearlessly into profound subjects. Through the support of Terri and Russ and your Circle of women, you will manifest change faster than if you were trying to do this alone. And, most importantly, we help you to arrive at YOUR own answers for YOUR life and YOUR Best Self.

All along the way, Terri and Russ (both skillful and experienced coaches) provide guidance, encouragement, feedback, and support for your personal breakthroughs.

Circle work creates a space of unconditional acceptance where learning, growth and transformation occur naturally.

We do all of this online, from anywhere in the world that has an internet connection.


During each of the six months, we begin a new module/topic. These topics are organized in the Women Connected School portal where you will dive into creative and experiential activities through Circle Accelerators.

Prior to the Live Circle Gathering: At the end of the previous topic, the new module is released is in your program portal. It contains the self-work that you will do during the month prior to coming together for the Live Gathering. Self-work includes a variety of right and left brain activities where you will journal and also work with images.

During the Live Circle Gathering: The Live Gathering is the culmination of the self-work done through the month. Here we meet on webcams and work in a Circle fashion. Our Circle time is filled with intention, purpose, and respect for the Circle process and members. Each Circle is a sacred setting that opens with meditation and intention setting.

More than half the time on a Live Gathering is spent as each woman then shares her work and her insights and questions from the Circle Accelerators.

Each Circle is closed with a meditation, poem, or mindfulness practice.

After the Live Circle Gathering: To fully integrate the learnings from the Circle, each topic has Journal work to complete the process.


  1. 7 modules and accompanying journals of creative exercises, journal prompts, and space for your own unique expression.
  2. 7, 90-minute Live Gatherings corresponding to the monthly module where you will have the opportunity to share your insights and learn from the insights of the other women in the Circle.
  3. Each month you will delve into a new topic and unlayer another part of your best self.
  4. Regular interaction with Terri and Russ (our Mindfulness teacher!)
  5. Private Facebook Community for discussions and sharing.

You can expect to make profound changes when committed to the processes of Women Connected Circles.

Founder Women Connected & ICF Professional Certified Coach

Terri is an Integral Coach, a group facilitator, mentor, blogger, art-journaler, wife, mom, feminist, continuous learner, and Founder of WomenConnected. net. She is passionate about women's potential and demonstrates her commitment to the development and empowerment of women both personally and professionally.

After 20 years of being the head of Learning & Leadership Development functions on Wall Street, Terri became frustrated that programs that were designated for women, were really the same programs designed for men. These programs didn't take into account the inner world of women, the way women think and operate differently from men, the collaborative preference of women vs. the command & control styles of men, the many hats that women wear in their lives, and the shifts that women need to make in order to break free of the conditioning imposed on women by our societies. As Terri began working with women around the world, she began to see that this was not just a western need, but also a global need in male-led socieities.

In 2015, Terri founded Women Connected and launched Women Connected Circles, touching a global audience. Now in 2017, she has launched the Women Connected Global School, providing transformational experiences for women to support women to expand their awareness and to empower them to fully express their talents in the world.

As a professional in the field of Learning and Adult Development, Terri uses creative, out-of-the-box approaches to designing programs that train and coach the whole woman to master her inner world so that her outer world can shift.
