Described as one of the best-known life coaches in America in media such as Pyschology Today, O columnist Martha Beck has demonstrated a rare gift for helping people whose lives have gone off course to find their way back to authentic, rewarding lives. Now, in Steering by Starlight, Martha Beck describes the step-by-step process she uses with her private clients to help them find their way back to their 'homing instincts'--their true destinies.

Bringing together cutting-edge research in psychiatry, neurology,and related fields in an accessible, substantive, original way, Dr. Beck offers powerful new methods for solving the problems that beset ordinary people. Using her trademark wisdom, empathy, and engaging style, she connects listeners with personal coping strategies that are not yet widely available as she helps them overcome the alienation that is causing them to lose sight of their own North Star.

Dr. Beck identitfies three stages along the path to recapturing a satisfying life:

-'the stargazer' helps listeners understand why it's so easy to lose themselves and offers strategies for sighting their North Star

-'the mapmaker' uses this newly clairfied perspective to evaluate one's situation and plot a course for upcoming years

-'the pathfinder' discusses the adventures that may be encountered as one travels along this new life course

Whether it's seeking better relationships, more focused career direction, the achievement of specific fitness goals, or a more harmonious lifestyle, Steering by Starlight's colorful anecdotes, case studies, and exercises will point the way.
