Meet Martha Beck | Finding Your Way in a Wild New World
Drawing from ancient wisdom and modern science, Beck helps readers consciously embrace their skills and create the life they really want. What she's found is that people with great passion, empathy, and creative potential have within themselves a quiet power that could change the world; but lack the tools. She shows you how to tap into that power by finding your inner identity and your external "tribe" of like-minded people. With step-by-step instructions and guided reflections, Beck instructs readers how to "drop into the wordless state of communion with nature and self, how to experience for yourself the your oneness with the universe, how to be empowered by the spark of inspiration, and how to take action to make a lasting impact on the world."
