The Artist’s Way is a powerfully provocative and inspiring book on the subject of creativity by American author Julia Cameron, published in 1992. It is the seminal book on creativity. An international best-seller, it has become a phenomenon and instigated many support groups throughout the world for artists dedicated to practicing the exercises it contains. Cameron recommends two ongoing activities that will conquer blocks and self-destructive tendencies: morning pages and artist’s dates. Morning pages are three pages of writing, performed daily, about anything at all. This is how I started writing! I thought I was fostering growth in my design career, I had no idea that this book and the exercises it proposed would spawn not only my healing journey but also launch me in my greatest enterprise to date: Riding the Wave: Tales of Transformation.
“With the basic principle that creative expression is the natural direction of life, Julia Cameron and Mark Bryan lead you through a comprehensive twelve-week program to recover your creativity from a variety of blocks, including limiting beliefs, fear, self-sabotage, jealousy, guilt, addictions, and other inhibiting forces, replacing them with artistic confidence and productivity. This book links creativity to spirituality by showing how to connect with the creative energies of the universe.”
