The Way of Integrity

Finding the Path to Your True Self

“This radiant book will not only change your life, but perhaps even save it.” -Elizabeth Gilbert, #1 New York Times bestselling author

Bestselling author, life coach, and sociologist Martha Beck explains why “integrity”—being in harmony with ourselves—is the key to a meaningful and joyful life.

As Martha Beck says in her book, “Integrity is the cure for psychological suffering. Period.”

In The Way of Integrity, Martha presents a four-stage process that anyone can use to find integrity, and with it, a sense of purpose, emotional healing, and a life free of mental suffering. Much of what plagues us—people pleasing, worry and anxiety, negative habits—all point to what happens when we are out of touch with what truly makes us feel whole.

Inspired by The Divine Comedy, Martha uses Dante’s classic hero’s journey as a framework to break down the process of attaining personal integrity into small, manageable steps. She shows how to read our internal signals that lead us towards our true path, and to recognize what we actually yearn for versus what our culture sells us.

With techniques tested on hundreds of her clients, Martha brings her expertise as a social scientist, life coach and human being to help readers to discover what integrity looks like in their own lives. She takes us on a spiritual adventure that will change the direction of our lives, and bring us to a place of genuine happiness.
