I’m pretty comfortable saying this is the most fun interview I’ve ever done. Martha Beck is a wild woman to the core and her intense brilliance is undeniable. We run the gamut from psychic senses, technology and integrity to what we can learn from animals, processing grief and being honest with the people in your life about everything. We talk about life coaching, and she even analyses a few of my dreams. This conversation is an absolute blast ripe with a ton of insight. Enjoy!

Beck’s latest book, Diana, Herself: An Allegory of Awakening, is her first foray into fiction and is the first installment of her Bewilderment Chronicles series.

  • Hannah Schmitt

    Aaaawesome interview, thank you so much! Especially the Byron Katie / integrity thing helped clear up something. Cause…. if somebody steals from me and I do the work in order to be ok with it somehow – *how* can I also set boundaries and speak up at the same time?

    But I like speaking my mind and doing the work on the bad conscious that might creep up for doing it.
