Publisher's Summary

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.

What the Critics Say

“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)

    "Life changing"

    I read a lot about spirituality, personal growth, entrepreneurship, neuropsychology, and animal science. Yet this has to be one of the most inspirational calls to action I have listened to, despite the oftentimes corny narrator and lengthy bush stories. Martha Beck is full of contagious, joyful energy and a great combination of soulful believer and thoughtful academic.

    "I believe in magic"

    Just finished the audiobook and am deciding whether to go back and read it again right now. I'll definitely be getting the ebook for quick reference and exercises.

    Story
    "Insightful and Amazing"
    Would you listen to Finding Your Way in a Wild New World again? Why?

    Yes and I have at least twice. There are so many fresh insights - too many to absorb and consider in one reading. The story about the safari coming upon a family of giraffes and the author's witnessing the horrifying experience really moved me. I learned so much from this example. While I won’t spoil the story by giving too much detail, I truly identified with Martha’s delayed reaction at the airport and am sure she was correct in thinking those who witnessed that thought she was a madwoman!


    What other book might you compare Finding Your Way in a Wild New World to and why?

    I've read many fine books but this one is in a class by itself. I'm blown away by the differing perspectives of the reviewers I read but diversity is what makes the wild, wild, world go round!


    Have you listened to any of Heather Henderson’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Not that I know of but she is a phenomenal narrator and my delight in this book was greatly enhanced by her expressive delivery.


    What insight do you think you’ll apply from Finding Your Way in a Wild New World?

    Too many to divulge here and since I know I will listen again, I'm sure new insights will unfold.

    "Not good as an audible"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    This is one of those books that you start listening to and realize that you should have gotten the paper version. There are too many spots that I would want to re-read, especially when she gives you different exercises to do.

    Story
    "Repackaged New Age Silliness"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Magical thinkers who believe "The Secret" is real and who are willing to pay over and over again for repackaged buddhism.


    What could Martha Beck have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Not much. I don't really see the world the same way as the author.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    Toned it down a bit. The level of enthusiasm she expressed for small things was a little over the top.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Laughter. The author kept insisting that this is not the same old new age "woo woo" but in the very next sentence would go on to espouse the same old new age mumbo jumbo. Sure she has her own labels to sell her own brand of wishful thinking, but their really is nothing new or particularly insightful here.


    Any additional comments?

    You want to succeed in life? All of these self help books can be boiled down to one simple sentence. Identify what you like and then commit yourself to the effort needed to achieve it. Everything else is just fluff and salesmanship

    "Loved the book, but disappointed that Martha was not the narrator!!!"

    Loved the book, but the narrator's voice sounded mechanical and incongruent with the spirit and inspiration of the story. Would have loved to hear Martha narrate her book, it's so brilliant that it's deserving of her narration!!!

    "Excellent performance"

    This was the best-narrated audio book I have ever listened to. Bravo! It made the magical content of Martha Beck's book come alive. I wish there was a PDF to summarize the main points of the technologies of magic, but I took notes. Excellent book!

    "So good."

    This is a truly wonderful book, written in a style I would be afraid to use. I can't remember the last time, if ever, I felt mentored by a book. I cried through a lot of this book for no reason. I tried the exercises. The concept of "wordlessness" landed so precisely within me that it wasn't difficult to build from there. I'm expecting a leopard to show up in my front yard any minute.

    "Find Your Purpose and Get Happy!"

    I do Past Life Regressions, and I stumbled onto Martha Beck's work when I read and loved Lissa Rankin's book, "Mind Over Medicine." Reading Martha Beck's book reminds me of the "healer's journey," which she describes to a "T." It was her journey, and mine, too! I've been on it my whole life. Somewhat involuntarily! ;^)) (You'll get that joke if you read the book.) I'm now recommending both these books to my clients so that they can get inspired and brave enough to open to doing what their "soul demands." Once you know the over-riding purpose of your life, you can begin to walk like a warrior in the right direction. "Finding Your Way," is a book about smelling, sensing, tracking and feeling the path that will bring you the greatest joy! And Martha's book is filled with wit, wisdom and joyfulness!
