about martha

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 masterclasses from me to help you create your right life.

When not covering myself in birdseed and sitting outside in nature, I am writing my new book called The Way of Integrity.

No matter how difficult and painful it may be, nothing sounds as good to the soul as the truth.
