Course description


Women Connected Circles - New Circle Opening January 2019

6-Month Online Program


Women Connected Circles is a unique experience of self-learning while forming relationships with a small group of women.

Each month, Terri will take you on a guided journey with a specific theme, online materials, a unique journal with exercises, and conscious choices you can apply in your life.

On these journeys we reconnect with the feminine within us, our core purpose, and our dreams. We look at the stories and beliefs that have shaped the women we are today and we are empowered to expand and revise these stories.

We come to a deeper appreciation of how our female biology changes over time, and we learn the skills to navigate those transitions by reaping the lessons, grieving the losses, and embracing new beginnings.

We have intentional conversations and hold the voice of each woman in the Circle as sacred as we offer encouragement, ideas, and personal stories.

Women Connected Circles is a transpersonal journey of emotional healing, empowerment, and honoring the sacred within ourselves, each other, and all of life.

This program is open to all women who are interested in a learning path that supports their own growth as they support the growth of others.

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



WOMEN CONNECTED CIRCLES CADENCE AND FLOW

Women Connected Circles are an opportunity to learn and grow in the context of relationships with other women. Learning with others provides us the chance to be mirrored, to be seen and heard (deeply important human needs) and to be supported as life coincides with our Women Connected Circles work.

Terri creates a safe container for self-learning and holds a vision for each woman to safely explore the learning that each topic holds for her. Terri models and teaches sacred witnessing as part of the Women Connected Circles curriculum.

During each of the six months, we begin a new module/topic. This topic is supported by a Journal where you can take notes and reflect on your experiences, and specially designed activities called Circle Accelerators.

The cadence for each new topic is a cycle of beginnings, enriching our experiences, and then closing.

Prior to the Live Gathering:  At the end of the previous topic, the new module is released is in your course. 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 activities that allow you to reflect on who you are becoming through journal work and creative and written exercises. There is also the opportunity to share what you're learning through the online discussion threads if you choose.

During the Live Gathering: The Live Gathering is the culmination of the self-work done. During the Live Gathering, 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 opened with a meditation or mindfulness practice to help us set our intention for our time together. Each woman checks in about how she is coming into the Circle, she shares her personal intention for our time together, and asks for the kind of support she'd like for this time.

More than half the time on a Live Gathering is spent sharing the self-work from the Circle Accelerators and integrating these learning through In-Circle activities.

Each Circle is closed with a meditation or mindfulness practice.

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

Founder Women Connected & ICF Professional Certified Coach

Hi, I'm Terri Altschul, Founder of WomenConnected.net

I am a transformational coach supporting women going through change and transition.

As women, we experience distinct stages of our lives that are driven by our female biology and bodies. Each of these stages has a beginning, a middle, and an end and is a major milestone. Within each stage, we can also experience many changes and developmental milestones.  And, transitioning from one stage to the next is an ending and a kind of death.

Navigating these stages, accepting what is ending and embracing what is new, opens the door to many possibilities within our lives.

Yet, often we get stuck along the way.  You may be at a career crossroads and not know which way to turn.  You may want to be home with your children but your family needs the income you can provide.  You may be dealing with illness and feeling like time is standing still as this becomes the focal point of your life. 

When working through change and transitions, continuing to move through becomes key.  We do this by looking within, understanding our fear and resistance, noticing what we have outgrown, healing our wounded parts, and embracing our new realities.  We call this “The Heroine’s Journey”

With the support of coaching and the tools offered at Women Connected, you will have a roadmap for the changes of your life, you will acquire tools that will help as you continue to grow and evolve, and will be supported by a coach who cares deeply for you and the changes you are navigating.

I use many creative approaches in my coaching ranging from deep holding space, to powerful conversations, to incorporating art. 

My particular brand of 'medicine' is to deeply hear you, to see you, and reflect this back so that you may see your own light.

Whether I am coaching with you or leading a group program, I am here to hold space for you and to be a witness to your journey, to support you when life throws the inevitable curveballs, and to offer inquiries that take you just a little deeper - just a little further than you thought possible.  I have been many of my own Heroine’s Journeys and am here to be your guide as you as you navigate change and transition in your life.

I look forward to working with you!

With love,

Terri
