5.0 out of 5 stars Brave and transformative 29 Jan 2012
By Fialka
Martha Beck's previous books Finding Your North Star and Steering by Starlight have already been the catalyst and ongoing guides for real change for the better in my life. This one takes it to the next level again and it's interesting too to see the development of Martha's own thinking, or way of living. To me it's like layers are peeled off and actually with each book 'the process' gets simpler and simpler. Not easier to put into practice, maybe, but simpler and fewer steps. And this feels like getting closer to the truth about life.

In contrast to the North Star especially, now there's almost no analysis and planning you need to do to find your right life; less work to do. According to Finding Your Way..., and what my own experience seems to affirm, you just sense and pick the right path each moment. The book comes close to being the 'How To' companion to Eckhart Tolle's The Power of Now.

The book is bravely written sharing very intimate and personal experiences, but in a way that feels open and appropriate, not exhibitionist. While you could have made it a much shorter 'guide', I enjoyed and found moving and inspirational the stories about Martha's own journey of discovery of the reality she's talking about.

This book may not be immediately accessible if you're not familiar with the spiritual ideas, such as energies and 'everything is connected', or have never experienced something like that in your life. But even so you'll probably enjoy this engagingly written book, and find something that strikes a chord.

I believe this will be a milestone book for the new spiritualism.

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved it! 10 April 2012
By njp
I found that this book totally spoke to me and I learnt a great deal from reading it. It took concepts that I have already experienced and added to them in a really valuable way. I found Martha's stories about her own personal experiences really helpful and fascinating.

I have been practising the exercises from the book and have already gained great benefit from them.

A couple of the reviewers didn't appreciate there being lots of Martha's personal experiences in the book which is fair enough as each person has their own different preferences. I however totally loved reading about her adventures and feel the book wouldn't have been so fulfilling without it.

Martha Beck has a much higher profile in the US than in the UK. I've never heard her name mentioned in the UK (either in the media or by acquaintances), but in the US she regularly appears on the Oprah Winfrey tv show and in videos hosted at Oprah's website, writes a monthly column in Oprah's print magazine, has written several bestselling books, runs a successful life-coaching company, is an inspiration to families who have children with Down's Syndrome, and has publicly aired her antagonistic relationships with the Mormon church and her extended family (which is highly-placed in the church's organization).

I read my first Martha Beck book about 13 years ago, and instantly admired her sense of humour, writing skill, down-to-earth personality, intelligence and academic achievements, and concern for other people. The more I've read by her, seen her on tv, etc., the more highly I've thought of her.

I haven't read all her books, skipping the one about her son Adam, the one about dieting, of course the Mormon-focussed one she wrote a long time ago with her (now-"out", now-ex) husband about overcoming addictions (including how to overcome being gay) (and now Martha is "out" as well, having lived with a female partner for many years, although I just learned about that side of her life last year, and I saw a 2011 interview of Beck by Oprah Winfrey during which Oprah learned about Martha's being gay, and Oprah was also quite shocked she had not known about this before, since they have worked together for many years).

I especially recommend her book _Finding Your Own North Star_. The follow-up _Steering By Starlight_ is okay, but kind of dips into the "woo-woo factor" more than most people are probably comfortable with (although I was fine with it myself).

5.0 out of 5 stars Courageous and compelling 19 Jan 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I've read all Martha Beck's previous books and know first hand what a skilful coach she is.This approach is something else altogether.Martha Beck moves into more"spiritual" territory,inspired by some of her own experiences,especially in Africa.She identifies how we can enter the deep energy field behind everyday life.There we are in contact and resonance with everyone else on the "team" as she calls the menders and wayfinders amongst us and everyone we have ever come into contact with.I was then expecting her to move into"Law of Attraction"spiel but she didn't.She suggests ways of working with events,people and creatures who are about to happen to us.Above all,it's about connecting with your own unique nature.Wonderful and helpful at the same time!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great value 9 Mar 2012
This is a complex book and takes the way we live in this world to a whole new level. I have only managed to implement one small change with regards to the advice given in the book. The result has been amazing and effortless. This book is one I'll be diving deeper into and, as with all her books, return to it time and again.
