Program Description

Find peace and purpose in uncertain times and gain powerful tools to navigate in unchartered territory. This is a special opportunity to spend the weekend with renowned life coach Martha Beck. Through her engaging lectures, anecdotes, and experiential exercises, you will learn to live authentically, release negative behavior patterns, go deeper into yourself, and discover and experience a never-ending source of comfort and compassion.

Whether you feel stuck in some aspect of your life and are seeking expert guidance for taking a big leap, or you are looking for ways to feel happier, less stressed, and more fulfilled in life as you know it, this weekend will give you the courage to discover and take the next steps.
In this self-empowering weekend, you will:

  • Learn to drop away from the “tameness” of socialization that has been holding you back from living freely and authentically
  • Find your own “wild self” that has always been guiding you toward your optimal life path
  • Tap into limitless resources of power, creativity, peace, purpose, and joy
  • Use your wild mind—in real time—to invent creative, often unprecedented solutions to the practical problems in your current life situation and in the world at large.

You will return home with new peace, purpose, and practices to carry the skills you experienced in this program into every aspect of your life.

  • Faculty Bio
    Martha Beck, PhD

    Best-known life coach in America

    Martha Beck grew up wanting to be an ecologist or a professor. However, after bearing three children while acquiring three Harvard degrees, Martha decided she’d rather just lie down for a few decades.

    During that time she became an author and life coach. Her books include, Expecting Adam, Leaving the Saints, Finding Your Own North Star, The Joy Diet, Steering by Starlight, Finding Your Way in a Wild New World, and her brand-new book, Diana, Herself: An Allegory of Awakening.

    Martha has been a columnist for O, The Oprah Magazine since its inception in 2001 and has been a contributing editor for several popular magazines, including Real Simple and Redbook.

    Martha continues to speak around the world as well as offer virtual classes and in-person workshops a few times a year, primarily at her ranch on the Central Coast of California, where she lives with her partner, Karen, and her son, Adam.
