Beth Green is an original thinker and a catalyst for change. She is also a gifted intuitive counselor, teacher, facilitator, author, speaker, live streamer, improvisational pianist, composer and more. Despite her having been chronically ill since the age of 15, Beth’s work is prodigious, effective and constantly evolving. Yet none of this describes her. Very simply put, Beth Green is intuitively guided in all things. And that is the secret of this amazing woman.
Born in New York City in 1945, Beth has always been acutely aware of the intense suffering on the planet. From the age of 9, and at great personal cost, she became a dedicated social activist, engaged with issues ranging from anti-nuclear proliferation to income inequality, the Vietnam War, racism, social justice and workers’ rights. At the end, from 1974-78, she was the West Coast Coordinator of the Wages for Housework Campaign, which pointed out the role of “women’s work” in the economy while addressing the economic foundation of women’s lack of power in society. She felt deeply committed to this work, but by 1978, she had burned out on political activism and opened herself to a different way to support social change.
She didn’t have to wait long. In 1978, just as she withdrew from radical politics, she had a completely unexpected spiritual awakening, and in 1980, she even had a “psychic” awakening and began to experience an inner voice that has guided her ever since. She immediately became an intuitively-guided counselor, working with groups and individuals.
With no training in spirituality or religion – just following her inner guidance – Beth immediately became a voice for grounded spirituality. Right out of the gate, her understanding has been broad, and her insight has been laser-like. Her coaching and teachings have called upon us to confront mindless conformity to the beliefs and conditioning that enslave us, and she has supported us to see past our own fears and rationalizations. She has helped us connect the human and the divine, and her life-long goal has not wavered. As before, when she was a social activist, she is striving to help co-create a better world, but now using what she sees as a more effective approach. And she does it all with warmth, compassion and a delightful sense of humor.
Right after her psychic awakening, Beth worked for a short time on her own. But in 1983, she was guided to call her work The Stream, defined as the process of becoming who you already are, and to her amazement, people joined her, and a spiritual community was born, whose express purpose was to bring together psychology and spirituality. During those years, Beth did counseling, taught intuitive counseling, ran workshops and intensives, wrote articles and created tapes, books and articles, all intuitively guided. One of the seminal works she created during that time was the book “Sacred Union: The Healing of God,” which posited a God that was not perfect, but evolving, and which showed the way to evolve beyond the domination of the ego.
Over the decades, The Stream went through many changes, including becoming a nonprofit organization. Ultimately it has evolved into what it has become today, which is called Granny Rocks: The Music & Message of Beth Green. Always the purpose has been the same, to support Oneness in ourselves and throughout the world. Beth also continued to evolve and added many books, different kinds of healing modalities, videos and music to her growing tools for supporting humanity’s evolution.
In the decades since her spiritual awakening, Beth has created numerous teachings, tools and processes to support evolution, which are communicated throughout all her work. Many of these teachings, tools and processes are contained in her books “Living with Reality” and “Handbook for the Inner Revolution.” She has been a counselor and prolific workshop leader, facilitated support groups for men, women and relationships, written six books (two fiction and four non-fiction, two of which are free downloads — for now at this website. These downloads include “Living with Reality,” a comprehensive manual to shift human consciousness, and created four CDs of original music, which you can download here. Beth has also been a blogger at the Huffington Post and other sites, and was one of only 14 spiritual teachers featured in “The New Science & Spirituality Reader” edited by two-time Nobel prize nominee Ervin Laszlo. She has been interviewed many times on the media, and she formerly hosted her own radio show, Inner Revolutionary Radio. Additionally, she has supported many people to develop their own intuition, both as a natural result of working with her in her intuitive style and through her many intuition and consciousness training classes.
Currently, in addition to doing intuitively-guided personal and creativity counseling, groups, retreats and workshops, Beth is offering a Facebook livestream at her very active Facebook page. Every Monday and Wednesday at 6:30 pm Pacific time, Beth offers GROW (Granny Rocks Our World), a livestream combining commentary, humor and mind-body-spirit healing processes. She also leads a weekly mutual support group every Wednesday evening at 7pm Pacific time, and all can participate. The program is called GROWTH (Granny Rocks Our World to Heal), where people meet with Beth and one another via videoconference (accessed by computer or phone) to gain deeper insight into themselves about their own relationship to themes recently explored on GROW.
And let’s not forget the music. Every Thursday night at 7 pm Pacific time, she livestreams her improvisational acoustic piano music, which is gaining a worldwide audience. People say this music soothes them, brings them joy, helps them cry and lifts their spirit. In fact, she is determined to hit the road with her husband James so that he and she can bring their music to people in person!
In addition to her Facebook page, which keeps people posted of all current offerings, Beth has over two hundred and fifty videos (and counting!) on her YouTube channel, Granny Rocks TV, where she speaks with fresh originality about topics from relationships and ego, to economics and history. On this channel, she also shares videos of her original music. And finally, at her YouTube channel, you can participate for free in LifeForce: The Inner Workout, which is a mind-body-spirit exercise program whose archives go back for years. By the way, she sometimes includes a brief LifeForce on her GROW programs to help us all shift in positive ways. Beth is also currently offering Train Your Intuition with a Master, a series of classes on Saturday afternoons to support those who value intuition and would like to develop theirs for professional or life purposes. And finally, in addition to her counseling, teaching, and other opportunities for you to interact with her personally online, Beth offers periodic in-person events, such as retreats.
And then there’s the music. Although Beth has been on the planet since 1945, she has just become a performer. Because of being crippled by illness, Beth stopped playing the piano at the age of 15. But through the miracle of computer technology, she was able to start composing and recording during her 50s. But now in her mid-70s, another miracle has occurred – she has begun playing the piano again. She is now using her gorgeous 7-foot Shigeru Kawai grand piano to perform live improvisations to support her message and connect us more deeply to ourselves. She has also been producing audio and video recordings of her intuitively-guided music. On many, including her Solo Piano Plus series, she accompanies her pre-recorded improvisations with digital musical instruments. These videos can also be found on her YouTube channel.
For a little personal information, Beth Green is married to James Maynard, otherwise known as Sweet Baby James, who is also a musician and with whom she sometimes performs. They live in a forested setting on the McKenzie River in Central Oregon with their two little dogs, Lily and Mojo.
