Author. Speaker. Wayfinder.
I grew up wanting to be an ecologist or a professor. However, after bearing three children while acquiring three Harvard degrees, I decided I’d rather just lie down for a few decades. During that time I became an author and life coach. My books include Expecting Adam, Leaving the Saints, Finding Your Own North Star, The Joy Diet, Steering By Starlight, Finding Your Way in a Wild New World, and my brand new book, Diana, Herself: An Allegory of Awakening.
I’ve been a columnist for O, The Oprah Magazine since its inception in 2001. I have also been a contributing editor for several popular magazines, including Real Simple and Redbook.
As president of my company, Martha Beck, Inc., I continue to speak around the world, as well as offer virtual teleclasses and in-person workshops a few times a year. I also train life coaches worldwide through my Wayfinder Life Coach Training program. On this site, you’ll find a number of audio products and journals from me and a few of my talented Master Coaches to help you create your right life.
When not covering myself in bird seed and sitting outside in nature, I am writing my new book called Maelstrom, which is the follow up to Diana, Herself, and the second installment of The Bewilderment Chronicles series.
