Martha Beck, PhD, is a Harvard-trained sociologist, world-renowned coach and New York Times bestselling author. She has published nine non-fiction books, one novel, and more than 200 magazine articles.
“I’m shocked every time someone introduces me as a ‘bestselling author,’ because I’ve never written to sell myself, only to save myself. Writing is my favorite tool for addressing and dissolving my own suffering. At some point I discovered that it could help others, too. Since then I’ve been humbled by the responses I receive to my books and articles. My most recent stint as a monthly contributor for O, The Oprah Magazine, has lasted 17 years.
The method I call Light Writing is what’s earned me all those gigs. But I still do it primarily to wake myself up, to live more authentically and experience more joy. That makes writing my daily bread in every way I can imagine. I would love to share it with you.”
