Walking in This World: The Practical Art of Creativity Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Ten years ago Julia Cameron published a groundbreaking work that offered an original and astoundingly effective twelve-week course in creative discovery. With nearly two million copies sold, The Artist's Way is now a classic cherished by the aspiring and working artists who have experienced its rich benefits. Walking in This World picks up where The Artist's Way left off to present readers with a second twelve-week course-Part Two in an amazing journey toward discovering our human potential.

In Walking in This World, Cameron shows readers how to inhabit the world with a sense of wonder, a childlike inquisitiveness that each of us was born with. "Great artists are actually great amateurs," she writes in her introduction. "They have learned to wriggle out of the seriousness of rigid categorization and allow themselves to pursue the Pied Piper of delight." Full of valuable new strategies and techniques for breaking through difficult creative ground, this is the "intermediate level" of the Artist's Way program. A profoundly inspired work by the leading authority on the subject of creativity, Walking in This World is destined to become a classic in its own right.

Review:

"Her core insights are the same as in earlier volumes, yet her words seem to have grown wiser. She writes about the distractions of success, and about the long solitary stretches 'climbing the glass mountain' it takes to bring a large-scale creative project to completion. Her latest book reveals how reaching higher also means going deeper." Publishers Weekly
