Praise for The Artist's Way:
"If you have always wanted to pursue a creative dream, have always wanted to play and create with words or paints, this book will gently get you started and help you learn all kinds of paying-attention techniques; and that, after all, is what being an artist is all about. It's about learning to pay attention."

In this book, creativity is the path which leads you to your next stage. This is a 12-week course in cultivating your creativity to create a more inspired and authentic life which reflects what is meaningful and joyful for you. Although I've read many of Julia Cameron's books, including her Artists Way and sequels, this book hits just right for midlife or retirement and is a refresher course with new wisdom and perspective.
You can spend a week on each chapter doing the exercises, and it will ignite new thought. Upon reading it, already I checked out universities to see about getting a master's degree - or maybe even a doctorate - in a subject which fascinates me. I looked at my local continuing ed for dance and art classes. I'm buying a new Journal for Morning Pages and brainstorming possible Artist Dates.
The 12-week summer might be a great time to do this course, or fall when school is in the air, or January when you're thinking about doing something different in the New Year.
Cameron writes her purpose for this book is to give readers a set of tools to "trigger creative rebirth". Cameron reminds us that Laura Ingalls Wilder wrote her first children's book "Little House in the Big Woods" when she was 64. Many more books followed.
Some of the wisdom gleaned from this book:
* You shake the apple tree and the universe delivers oranges.
* As we open our creative channel to the Creator many gentle but powerful changes are to be expected.
* Your life is lived by tiny changes.
* The secret of your future is hidden in your daily routine.
* Our creative dreams and yearning come from a divine source. As we move toward our dreams, we move toward our divinity.
To give you a sense of topics covered in the book, some of the chapter headings include "Reigniting a Sense of: Wonder, Connection, Purpose, Honesty, Humility, Resilience, Joy, Motion, Vitality, Adventure and Faith".
This book teaches the creative principles to bring these more into your life through activities, questions to ponder and answer, wisdom and examples of others. Who doesn't want more joy, motion, purpose, faith, connection and adventure?
This book helps you design your own creative course for yourself - almost like a summer camp or university experience. What do you want to learn about or explore that is tugging at you? This book inspires you to begin again
and seek it out.
Julia Cameron and Emma Lively have a very valuable goldmine here if people who are in need of beginning again, who may feel timid or don't know how to start, can read this. I truly mean that I am elated! They have topics to write about, things to consider and things to think about. They are called
"Basic Tools For Creativity Recovery", but I call them "Jumpstarting Your True Self". There are "Taboo Subjects For The Newly Retired". Among oters that are addressed are: boredom, irritability, excitement, and even depression.
All of these are addressed to make your life ahead truly authentic and new. I did some of the exciting homework, like walking 20 minutes and letting your mind wander, journaling first thing in the morning, and answering questions about certain periods in your life. They are absolutely incredible. You should do this for twelve weeks straight. I just began for this review. It changes your life in ways you won't even know at first. This book truly is one for the recently retired, who need to find the life that they want to live next. Plus, it is so much fun!
Thank you,Julia Cameron, Emma Lively, PENGUIN GROUP TarcherPerigee, and Netflix for giving me an ARC copy of this book to read in exchange for my honest review.
