THE WAY OF INTEGRITY

FINDING THE PATH TO YOUR TRUE SELF

Introduction

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, Beck 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, staying in stale relationships, 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, Beck 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, Beck brings her expertise as a social scientist, life coach and human being to help readers to uncover what integrity looks like in their own lives. She takes us on a spiritual adventure that not only will change the direction of our lives, but bring us to a place of genuine happiness.

“Martha Beck’s genius is that her writing is equal parts comforting and challenging – she holds our hand as she leads us back home to ourselves. Beck is a teacher, a mother, a sage- and The Way of Integrity is the precise book needed as we head into this post-pandemic new world as our new selves.”

Glennon Doyle, author of the #1 Bestseller Untamed and founder of Together Rising

The Way of Integrity is the perfect guide for anyone who wants greater happiness and clarity of purpose.  As always, Martha Beck’s writing is beautiful and perceptive, and  the insights and exercises she shares in these pages may take you somewhere unexpected, but will certainly lead you to a better place.”

Marci Shimoff, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Happy for No Reason

The Way of Integrity is Martha Beck at her finest: one hundred percent pure distilled wisdom, truth, and illumination, delivered always with humor. This book is a compass that guides readers through the heart-bruising, nerve-jangling, chaos-making challenges of our time—and sets them on a more joyful path. There’s no one I’d trust more to get me out of the dark woods.”

Susan Casey, author of Voices in the Ocean, The Wave, and The Devil’s Teeth

I started reading this book in the midst of a stressful time—in my own life and in the life of our country (complete with civil unrest, wildfires, and wilder politics.) In the middle of the read, not much had changed in my life or the country, but things were changing in my mind and heart. I felt more hopeful, less despairing. More curious, less righteous. More in the light, less in Dante’s dark woods. And by the end of this profound, funny, and beautifully crafted book, I finally understood what Martha Beck has been saying for years, that the “wild beasts” of my own negativity, impatience, and anger are actually my friends, sent to show me when I am straying from my true path. Thank you, Martha for this book that will help anyone get back on the path and walk more joyfully toward their full integrity.

The Way of Integrity. It’s about the redemptive power of discovering, speaking and living the truth about who you are…. The book vibrates with magic, intelligence, and love. It brims with humor, spirituality, fascinating science, and even Dante’s Divine Comedy. This radiant book will not only change your life, but perhaps even save it.”
