Synopses & Reviews
Many people feel called to help others and change the world, but they just dont 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 Marci Shimoff
“Hendersons performance is totally in sync with the worldly authors let-the-dogs-out energy. This subtle but powerful advice on a variety of lifestyle choices will raise everyones expectations of what life can be.”
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.
