It is my great honor to welcome Dr. Martha Beck, New York Times bestselling author, life coach, and speaker to the podcast this week. Her newest book, The Way of Integrity: Finding the Path to Your True Self, was an instant New York Times Best Seller and felt like a journey home for me — one of those books where I found myself yelling “EFF YES!” out loud while reading. You know the kind.

Martha holds three Harvard degrees in social science, and Oprah Winfrey has called her “one of the smartest women I know.” She is a passionate and engaging teacher, known for her unique combination of science, humor, and spirituality. In this episode we cover navigating the internal split when you’re out of alignment or integrity and the magic that awaits when you have the courage to walk your truth — away from your socialization and towards the call of your soul.


  • Why choosing and being in harmony with yourself is the key to a joyful and meaningful life
  • Staying true to yourself despite other people’s opinions and expectations
  • Navigating the internal split when out of integrity and having the courage to answer the call of your soul
  • Suffering as the key to liberation
  • How flipping your negative thoughts can give you peace of mind
