Over six weeks, readers will be given the tools to become better listeners — to their environment, the people around them, and themselves. The reward for learning to truly listen is immense. As we learn to listen, our attention is heightened and we gain healing, insight, clarity. But above all, listening creates connections and ignites a creativity that will resonate through every aspect of our lives.
Julia Cameron is the author of the explosively successful book The Artist's Way, which has transformed the creative lives of millions of readers since it was first published. Incorporating tools from The Artist's Way, The Listening Path offers a new method of creative and personal transformation.
