Synopses & Reviews
In The Vein of Gold: A Journey to Your Creative Heart, Julia Cameron, author of The Artist's Way, draws from her remarkable teaching experience to help readers reach out into ever-broadening creative horizons. As in The Artist's Way, she combines eloquent essays with playful and imaginative experiential exercises to make The Vein of Gold an extraordinary book of learning-through-doing. Inspiring essays on the creative process and more than one hundred engaging and energizing tasks involve the reader in "inner play," leading to authentic growth, renewal, and healing.
"For those seeking the wellsprings of creativity, this book, like its predecessor, is a solid gold divining rod." Publishers Weekly
"Cameron characterizes her teachings as "a process of creative individuation and emergence," or...of freeing the inner child. To her credit, Cameron is perfectly aware of readers' resistance to such approaches, but she forges ahead nonetheless, reminding us that a closed mind is antithetical to creativity." Booklist
