Beth Green is a counselor and teacher of tremendous depth and breadth. She fearlessly confronts traditional beliefs that don’t serve, lends her powerful intuitive skills to piercing people’s facades and helps liberate them from destructive and self-destructive patterns. To achieve these ends, Beth has developed many innovative and original modalities and tools that help individuals and collectives achieve greater wellbeing and awareness.
She is an author of fiction and nonfiction, a composer, workshop leader, counselor, consultant, teacher, mentor and pioneer in the application of the intuitive process to guide us in all areas of our lives. Now she is branching more into the media with Inner Revolutionary Radio and Beth Green TV. Whether on radio, on TV or via video conferencing, Beth is available to anyone in the world via the internet.
Beth is not afraid to confront herself or us; nor has she been afraid to confront conventional wisdom, even when her perspectives have been extremely unpopular. This includes her teaching that “God” is not perfect and humanity sinful; rather “God” is evolving and so are we. (See her book Sacred Union: The Healing of God.) Her teachings also conflict with many popular New Age/New Thought teachings, such as positive thinking, manifestation consciousness and the idea that we create reality.
Some of the threads that run through her work are:
- Being real and unflinchingly honest about what we see and feel
- Understanding ourselves in the context of the whole, always focusing on the collective nature of consciousness, how alike we are and the importance of collective change
- Being transparent about ourselves and acknowledging our individual and collective dysfunctions
- Probing the roots of our dysfunction through self-examination, as well as through a more general understanding of human consciousness as delineated in her seminal work, the book Living with Reality, which presents a clear understanding of the ego and its relationship to survival, while offering a pathway for change
- Dedicating our efforts to what she calls Becoming Becoming: transforming ourselves in alignment with our authentic nature to whatever degree is possible on an ongoing basis
- Creating mutual support systems to enable and sustain these changes
- Having compassion for ourselves and others, recognizing the difficulty of change, because it challenges our survival-based egoic behavior
- Confronting any beliefs, including spiritual belief systems, that feed delusion, ego and separation and which do not serve our highest good and the highest good of all
- Cultivating higher consciousness in a way that supports everyday life
A spiritual innovator and original thinker, Beth has always been a revolutionary. Born in New York City in 1945, she became a social activist at the age of nine, this despite the repressive political environment of McCarthyism. Already at that young age, she espoused unpopular causes, hoping to help alleviate inhumanity and suffering. In 1961, at the age of 16, she wrote a heart-felt letter to the New York Times calling us to consciousness about nuclear proliferation. The letter was published around the world and led to her expulsion from an Ivy League college, which she was attending on scholarship. Despite this very painful setback, she remained a devoted activist, intensely participating in the anti-Vietnam War movement and a variety of other struggles for social and economic justice. Her last political commitment was as the West Coast coordinator of the Wages for Housework campaign 1974-1978, advocating the social empowerment of women through their economic equality.
After many years of devotion to social revolution, Beth had a spiritual awakening in 1978 at the age of 33 and a psychic awakening two years later. Since that time, she has been guided by an inner voice connected to higher consciousness and a total devotion to authentic spirituality. Having turned her focus to the inner revolution, Beth in no way lessened her concern for the wellbeing and evolution of others. On the contrary, when she discovered her spiritual power and phenomenal intuitive gift, she used them to bring through and develop new teachings and a new world of modalities to effect real change on the individual and collective levels.

Beth as a Counselor and Teacher
Beth’s vast life experience coupled with her spiritual connection bring her a unique take on our lives and our world. She pulls no punches. In fact through all her work, she has confronted humanity’s me-based, destructive and self-destructive patterns and called us to a higher consciousness. Yet she has done so with understanding, compassion and tools that work. Her favorite saying is “I am that!” because she emphasizes our alikeness and even discloses her own inner process and challenges whenever she teaches and shares.
Beth’s Growing Outreach & Recognition
Beth’s work is becoming more known nationally and internationally. For example, she was one of only 28 luminaries in the fields of science and spirituality to be included in The New Science & Spirituality Reader, co-edited by Kingsley Dennis and Prof. Ervin Laszlo, who was twice nominated for the Nobel Prize. Beth’s articles, columns and blogs have appeared in a variety of venues, including magazines, such Awareness, Light of Consciousness, The Life Connection and Vision, and The San Diego News Network, where she was a regular columnist. Until recently, Beth was a frequent blogger on The Huffington Post and had a monthly column, plus videos, on the print and online versions of The LifeConnection. But Beth has let go of her many writing responsibilities to focus on internet radio and television as well as training intuitive counselors. Beth is also a dynamic speaker and has been interviewed over 100 times in the media around the country.
Beth as a Person
Perhaps the most astonishing personal fact about this gifted, prolific woman is that for well over 50 years, Beth has dealt with chronic pain and debilitating illness (she became chronically ill at the age of 15). How does she do it? If you question Beth as to how she has faced her many obstacles and been able to keep up her spirits, she will tell you her secrets:
- She cares. Her desire to help others and her never-ceasing thirst to develop more effective healing modalities have propelled her on a path to her own evolution.
- Her optimism. Never daunted by obstacles, Beth always believes the best is yet to come.
- Her community. To thrive, we all need support, including challenges to our egos. TheInnerRevolution.org, her husband and life have provided her with both!
- Her connection to higher consciousness.
Beth currently lives with her husband and partner James at their beautiful wooded sanctuary in Oregon, where they do their work and enjoy the company of the deer, wild turkey, trees, friends and dogs Lilly and Mojo. She and James found each other at Christmas, 2010. It’s a joyous time in both their lives.
