Banyen's Description: 

Since it was first published in 1991, The Artist’s Way has inspired millions to overcome the limiting beliefs and fears that inhibit the creative process. The Artist's Way is the seminal book on the subject of creativity. Julia Cameron takes readers on an amazing twelve-week journey to discover the inextricable link between their spiritual and creative selves, includes:

  • Introductions to two of Cameron's most vital tools for creative recovery--The Morning Pages and The Artist Date
  • Hundreds of highly effective exercises and activities
  • Guidance on starting a “Creative Cluster” of fellow artists who will support you in your creative endeavors.

With the basic principle that creative expression is the natural direction of life, Julia Cameron leads readers through a comprehensive 12-week program to recover our creativity from a variety of blocks, including limiting beliefs, fear, self-sabotage, jealousy, guilt, addictions, and other inhibiting forces.

The Artist’s Way is unique in that it:

  • links creativity to spirituality by showing in nondenominational terms how to tap into the higher power that connects human creativity with the creative energies of the universe—thus linking creativity to personal empowerment.
  • links creativity to learnable skills, guiding us through a variety of highly effective exercises and activities that spur imagination and capture new ideas.

When I was a little kid, one of my favorite heroes was Johnny Appleseed. I loved the idea of a vagrant wanderer traveling America, apple blossoms in his wake. It is my hope that this book will also create blossoming, that artists and circles of artists will spring into being...
1.   Creativity flourishes in a place of safety and acceptance.
2.  Creativity grows among friends, withers among enemies.
3.  All creative ideas are children who deserve our protection.
4.  All creative success requires creative failure.
5.  Fulfilling our creativity is a sacred trust.
6.  Violating someone’s creativity violates a sacred trust.
7.  Creative feedback must support the creative child, never shame it.
8.  Creative feedback must build on strengths, never focus on weakness.
9.  Success occurs in clusters and is born in generosity.
10.      The good of another can never block our own.

Writing in a personal voice, one seasoned through trials and teaching, Cameron recognizes the energies of art as those of our most precious soulstuff, which connects us and which inspires reverence and rituals of renewal for ourselves and the community.

The Artist's Way is a life-changing book. This 25th anniversary edition includes a new introduction from the author.

Among Julia Cameron’s other books are Finding Water and The Vein of Gold.
