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)
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.
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.
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!
No, she is clearly unbalanced
I love the premise, I love the peppy upbeat vibe...but I hate the ridiculousness of it.
This is a sad review. The author is obviously so devestated by the fact her son was born with Down's Syndrom (and can't speak) that the author has created an alternative reality where his disability is not 'reality' and where they actually communicate through a telepathic type stream of conciousness. But she would have you believe, it's not just her,anyone can tape into this 'stream' and thereby improve their lives. And here is the whole reason for this book: she want's as many people as possible to buy into this idea.
This audio book started so well, I really enjoyed the beginning and felt like it was going somewhere...until she started talking absolute fantasy and 'basing' or proving it with really bad and unproved science.
Martha, I've been bending spoons since I was a child, so I'm more open to your ideas than most but it's clear to me that you are unwell. I'm sorry about your son but putting forward the idea that he planted dreams in your mind and communicates to you via some higher stream is just nonsense. You must be in a lot of pain to dedicate so much time and effort into what is essentially a work of fantasy. You are deceiving people. I'm not OK with you taking my money for this rubbish.
Seriously.Get a grip already.
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.
The reader's voice sounds a lot like Martha Beck's! This is a great audiobook and it has really entertained and enlightened me.
Magical thinkers who believe "The Secret" is real and who are willing to pay over and over again for repackaged buddhism.
Not much. I don't really see the world the same way as the author.
Toned it down a bit. The level of enthusiasm she expressed for small things was a little over the top.
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.
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
Good until she started talking about bending spoons.Guess I am not a Wayfinder or whatever she calls herself. I also don't like how she talks down to her readers when she admits to her daughter that her books are just one big extended mediphor and "Well people seem to like it and buy my books".
I did like her term, the every when, that is a cool term/concept.
Foreign voices become dear friends, whispering in my ear. Some last long after the story has ended, heard, then, by all whom I touch.
Martha Beck is one smart and courageous cookie, who I think is ahead of the curve in her predictions. Her writing style is always informative, easy to digest and she's got a great sense of humour. The only bummer for me was that she did not narrate this book. I missed her voice.
