"The best known life coach in America" ( Psychology Today ) and bestselling author of Finding Your Own North Star provides a new transformational program for creating an unconventional life path to a sustainable way of life.

Finding Your Way in a Wild New World reveals a remarkable path to the most important discovery you can make: the knowledge of what you should be doing with your one wild and precious life. It's the thing that so fulfills you that, if you knew what it was, you'd run straight toward it through brambles and fire. Life coach and bestselling author of Finding Your Own North Star Martha Beck guides you to find out how you got to where you are now and what you should do next, with clear instructions on tapping into the deep, wordless knowledge you carry in your body and soul.

You probably have sensed that you have a higher calling and a quiet power that could change the world--you lack only the tools. With her sparkling prose, Beck draws from ancient wisdom and modern science to help you consciously tap into that power and develop those tools for transformation . You'll also find your inner identity and your external "tribe" of like-minded people, experience the spark of inspiration, and take action to make a lasting impact on the world.

Compassionate and inspirational, Finding Your Way in a Wild New World is a revolutionary journey of self-discovery that leads to miraculous change.

This was my last Martha Beck book to read. She is so great!

First of all, finding your Way in A Wild New World, is a fantastic title. Inside, Dr. Beck shares her concepts of the 4 technologies of magic.

Disclaimer: read Steering by Starlight first, and then this book. It's not necessary, but this book will then become more personable.

Martha Beck, Ph.D, received her B.A., M.A. and Ph.D from Harvard. In this book, she writes about Wordlessness and writes that words are... "the products of a dualistic mind-set". "Wordlessness shifts consciousness out of the verbal part of the brain..." ... so you can ..."connect your consciousness with the deep peace and presence that is the essential you." She adds that..."detaching from verbal thoughts eliminates almost all our psychological suffering." She says that Nature can heal. And she explains Forming... in the material world.

There were some valuable exercises that are essentially based around awareness and meditation... However, when things got very "new-age-y", and there was talk of controlling animals with the mind, and bending spoons, and all that kind of thing, it really lost me. Be prepared for a lot of unscientific, "it's true because I and other people believe it" kind of things. If you are able to get past a lot of that, it's an OK read.
