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.

“In a world that seems more and more chaotic, this book gives readers new tools - tools that bridge the gap between science and magic - for steering a clear path to joyful lives.” (Marci Shimoff, author of Love for No Reason)
Martha Beck has some interesting ideas to share.
She was very detailed about different characters. Her voice is easy to listen to and keep you entertained.
Taking the time to stay quiet and connect with something greater than yourself, the universe. Learning to recognize everything and everybody are connected.
On my search for peace, direction, spiritual enlightenment, whatever you would like to call it, this book offers some new ideas. The practice of meditation can be a challenge.
Practicing Idealist, Dabbling Realist ;)
Joyful Mind Teachings
Well, obviously the author since she is sharing her thoughts and experiences.
No - and this was a lot of fun to listen to. The various accents she used as part of the narrative were done well (at least they fit their stereotypes) and the delivery was good for the funny parts, with good comedic timing. There were some smile inducing sections, and a couple of laughs.
Bend it Like Beck-I-AM (under some twisted cutlery)
Yes, especially those friends who you have a deep connection with. The kind of friend you share your most intimate thoughts and never questions them.
I found so much more about a the world of healers, way-finders, meanders and ME!
Inflections were great
Already have tried and practiced the techniques of WORDLESSNESS
This book is a must read if you have ever had a psychic thought or experience. If your profession is in the service industry and work like hell and didn't know why listening to this will bring you closer to the answer. Lastly, if you want to discover about the connections of wild animals. their teachings and affects on the human mind this book is for you!
I'll let you know after I read the print version. I liked the audio version enough to order it.
This was told by the author. Not really a character book.
I really felt like Martha Beck was having a conversation with me.
Expeditions into finding the Wild True You!
I had read a few Martha Beck articles in O'Magazine. I read the reviews of her book here in Audibles.com and thought, what the heck, I'll try it. Talk about feeling like Destiny dropped this in my lap. Wow! If you are reading this review, then there is probably something drawing you to listen to this audiobook. Beck's unconventional approach is simple and profound. It quickly brings you to a clear way to find and follow your path to your true self.
This is the new Alchemist, you guys. Got it after Liz Gilbert recommended it on Twitter. So grateful. The book is wildly creative, joyful, magical and practical. I don't know how it manages to be all those things, but it does. I'm already a very happy person, but it has infused my soul with deep joy and hope.
I tend to listen to Martha Beck's books over and over. I like them best when she reads them, but this narrator is wonderful!!!!!!!!
The beginning of the book grabbed me and I was hooked from them on.
Heather's voices and accents bring a depth to the audio book that is rich and rewarding.
I listen to this book over and over on a two-hour commute between my home in the mountains and the city a couple times a month. I hear new things each time I listen.
I really want both the audio version (which was captivating) and the print version (for reference)
I love all the stories, I couldn't pick just one to talk about. The interactions with animals are just amazing.
Heather's performance of this book is a true performance, she elegantly weaves in the perfect amount of accents to help create a real sense of place and character.
In the course of this book there were SO many moments of bing. Light bulbs going off all over the place for me, bringing together so many things that I've learned in other places.
Martha Beck's ideas are much more unconventional than I expected, in the best possible way. She presents her somewhat esoteric material in a very approachable and fun way. Practicing her exercises has led to deep transformation.
I am glad to have listened to the audiobook, but I am now going to buy the print version as well because there are a lot of exercises that I want to be able to refer back to. If you're deciding between the two, I'd recommend the print version.
