Walking in This World [The Artist's Way-Book 2]
Walking in This World is Book 2 in The Artist's Way series by Julia Cameron.
Julia Cameron presents the next step in her course of discovering and recovering the creative self. Walking In This World picks up where The Artist's Way left off to present readers with a second course--Part Two in an amazing journey toward discovering our human potential. Cameron shows readers how to inhabit this world with a sense of wonder, a childlike inquisitiveness that each of us was born with. Full of valuable new strategies and techniques for breaking difficult creative ground, this is the "intermediate level" of the Artist's Way program
I'm so thrilled to be hosting a creative cluster book club for Julia Cameron's book Walking in This World.
I'm excited and filled with curiousity as we dive into this book. I have found the first book The Artist's Way is an invaluable guide to living the creative life.
This is an immersive course in living a creative life which takes about 2-3 hours a week. Creativity can come in many forms (painter, parent, writer, chef, ideation, sketching, spouse, singer, et al.).
This is a group discussion style workshop. I am not your teacher or your guru, I'm simply facilitating the discussion! Julia specifically asks us not to "teach" this book to anyone, but to be part of it with the group (which she lovingly calls "creative clusters". I'll be exploring, sharing and learning again right alongside you. The more you bring to the discussion the more you will get out of this, very literally, life-changing journey. Morning pages and artist dates are at the core of the program and help us connect to creativity in it's purest form as a divine source.
This book is spiritual in nature and uses the word God, but as Julia explains to us you can call whatever that source is to you by whatever name feels right for you to call it.
You will need the book which can be found on Amazon or Kindle! (More details about the different versions can be found in the classroom, which you will get instant access to).
