Finding your Way in A Wild New World
Oprah favorite and bestselling coach Martha Beck offers a transformative guide readers can use to become miracle workers, harnessing healing power for themselves and for the world. Many people feel called to help others and change the world, but they just don’t know how to fulfill their potential. They have the creativity and passion, but often get lost, not knowing how to direct their energies. Now, popular life coach Martha Beck shows how readers can find their calling in service and healing--while realizing their destiny. With a sparkling, compassionate, and often irreverent style, Beck draws from a combination of ancient wisdom and modern science to help readers consciously embrace vital skills that may be embedded in our DNA and are now made accessible again. Beck shows how to put together an “inner team” and an external “tribe” of people with the same aims and outlines four simple Steps for Transformation: Wordlessness, Oneness, Imagination, and Creation. With step-by-step instructions and guided reflections, Martha shows readers how to drop into the wordless state of communion with nature and self, how to connect with the oneness between self and the universe, how to be empowered by the spark of inspiration, and finally, how to take action and realize their creative potential to make a lasting impact in their own lives and the world around them. Heartfelt, inspirational, and filled with “a-ha” moments, Finding Your Way in a Wild New World provides the map for the unconventional life path that leads to miraculous change.

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.
