Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely divine! This book changed my life! It is a book of hope and freedom for the ones that did not have any artistic support. It is simple and amazing! Thanks to Julia Cameron for such a great action of bringing it to our lives and to GOD for putting it in my way!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Classic Book to Break through blocks Julia Cameron's book is truly amazing IF you put her recommendations into practice: doing the morning pages, weekly artist date and a few of the exercises each week. I am currently in week 6 (of 12) and after working my way through it, I have honestly noticed more synchronicity and a general feeling of more possibility in the world. There are more practical get-going-and-write books out there, such as Natalie Goldberg's Writing Down the Bones, but the Artist's Way is really fantastic at guiding you through the process of listening to your inner critic and doing the work despite your worries about quality, acceptance, etc.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bar None Plain and simple, this is the best book ever written for unleashing creativity, whether you believe yourself an artist or not. This book is for anyone who wishes to express themself through any art form, or in any creative way.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Artist's Way I am enjoying this book much more than I anticipated. It is helping me to be a better person for myself. It has made me realize that I need to have time for myself even though I don't feel like there is any more time to give. Having a stressful life is not fun and she has provided me with some ways to decrease the stress and the constant motion of my life with simple reasoning. The best thing about this book is the tasks and exercises. They make you understand who you are as a person better than anything anyone can tell you or you can read about. I have found that I feel alot less guilty about the time I spend doing things for me. I'm much more patience at work and with my family. I've starting doing things I use to love to do and things I've always wanted to do. Get this book and treat yourself - you deserve it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow! This "inner work book" is an amazing tool for creators of all kinds. It is for anyone interested in unleashing creativity buried in their soul, and unblocking habits and devices that hamper your creativity. Whether you write, act, dance, or express your creativity through sewing, needlepoint, or carpentry - any creative pursuit is enhanced by developing a spiritual path. You won't believe the results! The book pre-dates most of the spiritual books (and subsequent business empires) that glut the marketplace and SHOULD NOT be overlooked as a tool to help you attain the level of creative success you desire. Quite simply . . .wonderful.

Editorial Reviews

“ THE ARTIST’S WAY by Julia Cameron is not exclusively about writing—it is about discovering and developing the artist within whether a painter, poet, screenwriter or musician—but it is a lot about writing. 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.” --Anne Lamott, Mademoiselle   “The premise of the book is that creativity and spirituality are the same thing, they come from the same place. And we were created to use this life to express our individuality, and that over the course of a lifetime that gets beaten out of us. [ THE ARTIST’S WAY ] helped me put aside my fear and not worry about whether the record would be commercial.” --Grammy award-winning singer Kathy Mattea   “Julia Cameron brings creativity and spirituality together with the same kind of step-by-step wisdom that Edgar Cayce encouraged. The result is spiritual creativity as a consistent and nourishing part of daily life.” --Venture Inward   “I never knew I was a visual artist until I read Julia Cameron’s THE ARTIST’S WAY .” --Jannene Behl in Artist’s Magazine   “Julia Cameron’s landmark book THE ARTIST’S WAY helped me
