What Terri says :

Team Anastasia creates the most beautiful day. We laughed a LOT. We oooo'd and awww'd. I'm pretty sure we all teared up a few times. It's the best way to make beautiful images...to just be at ease with incredibly caring, talented and down-to-earth women.

Working with Anastasia and her team is pure joy. Every detail is attended to, but there's still so much creative flow. She got the essence of who I am and what I want to offer to the world. And I got a boatload of images...so generous.

About Terri | The Real Love Revolution

I’m interested in the True Reality of Love. The Love that clarifies, includes, and redeems. The Love that as A Course In Miracles puts it, "wants to join out of mutual abundance.” The Love that rushes into scarcity and division with generosity. I aspire to Love more than I am loved—it only recently occurred to me to give that a shot. It’s difficult. And amazing.

I think it’s too late in the day for business to be anything other than a vehicle for social and environmental healing. I think the opposite of spiritualism isn't necessarily materialism—it’s greed. I think loneliness is an epidemic. I believe that wellness is our natural state of being. I love what happens when we really hear each other.

I’m a lazy vegan, an opinionated introvert, a pure sensualist. I’ve had to fight for my Joy. These days, I fight less and flow more. I’m a terrible manager, but a good leader. Music has saved my life more than once—the louder the better. I support Functional Medicine, a number of conspiracy theories, the power of prayer, big hair, and celery juice. My girlfriends are my religion. I don’t want to hack anything in my life. Nope. No hacking. Just more living.

My bookends of professional pride are as follows: I never went to university, but I directed a future-studies think tank in Washington, DC. We consulted to the Pentagon on the dynamics of social change. That was weird. Jump cut to now: my team and I support about six hundred Desire Map Facilitators & Coaches in 15+ countries. Every week, somewhere in the world, a Desire Map event happens. That’s a lot of people getting clear on their Core Desired Feelings.

A big reason we love Terri's work :

She creates and gives so much to women! This spring she just released her Desire Map Course with Commune. She’s woven in a bunch of the emerging science on how it's the heart that directs the brain, not the other way around. It helps to foster deep learning, gives tools to work through suffering, and brings all of Danielle’s powerful #TruthBomb insight to a group format. You can find more info here: The Desire Map Course on Commune.

When I shot with Anastasia, it was a completely different experience from the many photoshoots I’ve done before. I loved the pictures she took of Danielle [LaPorte], who is a friend of mine, and Anastasia came highly recommended by her. I was impressed with the amount of time she took to prepare for the shoot, and how she actually flew in and came to my home. The prep itself really helped me figure out “where am I going?” and “how do I want people to feel?” She helped me realise that there was a real connection.

Anastasia has this incredible gift, this intuition, about who you are, and she brings that out through her ability to be spontaneous. Not only did I get clarity about my brand and where I want it to go through this process, but I also gained an entirely new audience through these photos because they truly are “all of me.” Throughout the process, Anastasia is so intuitive, spontaneous, and has so many great ideas, and is such an expert with lighting—this it is so much fun! I felt incredibly taken care of.

About Terri Cole

Terri is a licensed New York based psychotherapist, a meditation expert, and founder of the Real Love Revolution. For two decades, she has worked with some of the most well-known personalities from international pop stars, athletes, Broadway performers, TV personalities, and Fortune 500 CEO’s.

Before earning a Master’s Degree in Clinical Psychotherapy from New York University and adopting a daily meditation/green juice/exercise lifestyle, she worked as a talent agent for actors and supermodels. From Terri: “I was your typical Type A overachiever with zero balance and no internal peace. My ambition and fearless attitude fanned the ‘must get to the top’ flames as I zipped across the country from Los Angeles to New York City fueled by caffeine, nicotine, and adrenalin. (I was shocked to discover that espresso is not a food group!)”

She now empowers hundreds of thousands of women through her published articles, blog posts, therapeutic meditations, and courses.
