The Artist’s Way

The Artists WayThanks to meeting a new friend, actress Isabelle Sprung at a party that I wasn’t too keen on going to, I find myself in a new Artist’s Way group. It was about 10 years ago in Montréal that I first walked through this amazing book in a group setting, thanks to another good friend, Nick Serjeantson.

Here’s a quote from the back cover…The Artist’s Way* is an empowering book for aspiring and working artists. With the basic principle that creative expression is a natural direction of life, Julia Cameron leads you through a comprehensive 12-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.

The Artist’s Way 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 imagination and capture new ideas.”

I can’t recommend this book enough for those who need to deal with frustrated creativity….whether you are needing to discover your latent creativity as an amateur or needing to encourage it as a professional.

If you don’t mind, I’ll write a few blog posts in the next few months to share some of my insights and break-throughs that I experience throughout the course. Watch this space.

* Pour ceux qui s’intéressent, le livre, The Artist’s Way existe en français sur le titre – Libérez Votre Créativité.
