Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

Touted as the long-awaited sequel to The Artist's Way, Cameron's latest is so similar in look and format to the original that they could be sold in a boxed set. Previous follow-ups, including The Vein of Gold and The Right to Write and a slew of little spin-offs, here give way to a 12-week course of encouragement and exercises promoted as an intermediate level of The Artist's Way (inviting us to anticipate an advanced volume). At first and for a long way into the book, we encounter the wheel-greasing exercises that worked magic for millions, helping people discover their innate creativity by devising gentle ways around the myriad obstacles that block us (e.g., listing things we would secretly love to do.) Cameron re-introduces the basic tools the daily morning exercise of hand-writing three free-flowing pages and the weekly solitary "artist's date," designed to help us romance our inner artists and she adds the ancient practice of walking as a means of getting in touch with our deeper feelings and truer thoughts (hence the title). "When I can, I walk with friends, noting how companionable our silences become, how effortlessly deep our conversations," Cameron writes. Cameron does indeed capture the feeling of strolling and talking with an old and trusted guide. Her core insights are the same as in earlier volumes, yet her words seem to have grown wiser. She writes about the distractions of success, and about the long solitary stretches "climbing the glass mountain" it takes to bring a large-scale creative project to completion. Her latest book reveals how reaching higher also means going deeper. 10-city author tour.

From Library Journal

Cameron had an international best seller with The Artist's Way, which outlined a program that encouraged the reader's innate creativity. Here she extends her discussion of the topic. Aimed at practicing artists-and she considers everyone from full-time pianists to part-time pie makers to be such-Cameron explains how creating a work, whether it's a novel or a nosegay, puts people deeply in touch with the Great Creator. Then, in the form of a 12-week program, she outlines steps and exercises to nourish the "artist within." Some of these ideas, such as the pages she recommends writing every morning, will be familiar to readers of her previous work. Others, which are meant to help readers discover traits such as dignity, authenticity, and discernment, are new. Given Cameron's obvious familiarity with, and fondness for, the artistic temperament, this book is essential for public libraries serving "arty" communities. Most other public libraries will want a copy as well, since Cameron's broad definition of creativity will resonate with many patrons.

Format: Hardcover
For those who are new to the creative life or who need to get unblocked pronto, The Artist's Way is still the ultimate companion and guide. For those entrenched in the creative life, this mature sequel is excellent. Even those of us who seem to have creative careers can easily start spinning our wheels, getting stale, etc. That's where I was at when I started this book. I did the Artist's Way a couple of times and it was very helpful. The first sequel, The Vein of Gold, was fun to read but I didn't resonate with the exercises and examples. In Walking in this World, I feel that every chapter is a refreshing wake-up call of a different sort. Julia Cameron truly understands every nuance of the creative life. The tasks are simple, fun, but very revealing. I am mid-way through the course and already have found a renewed sense of energy and optimism, a very welcome respite during this horrible war with Iraq. The arts are and always will be important, for they define a culture. Without the arts and creative expression, we have no civilization. Thank you, Julia, for helping so many of us make this a more positive world through the creative arts.

As a professional writer and workshop leader who has lived by her words and her wit for twenty-five years, I approached this book with some degree of skepticism. (In the past, I found Cameron's books interesting, but not relevant to my concerns.)
Walking in this World, not only touched my spirit, it sparked my desire to write again after winning a book award left me termporarily burned out and off kilter.
Cameron's sections on how to overcome the internal and outside perils of success are sensitive and practical. I especially liked how she drew on examples from her own life and the lives of professional writers, musicians and artists to illustrate her points.
The most important thing I carried away from this book was the confirmation that there's nothing wrong with being versatile and multi-talented. Building a career, making a name in one genre or art form isn't the only option. If I'm called to write a novel or take up visual art, I can choose to do it and I'm not a quitter or crazy no matter what my upbringing or my agent say. I needed to hear that.
Art, music and writing schools don't teach this material. They should.

First a caveat: I did not finish the book. So anyone who did and dismisses this critique may well be right to for that reason alone. Still, I have read several other Cameron books to the end, and I feel confident stating that most of her points in this book are simply reworked albeit very poetic descriptions of the ones in her books on living the writing life.
Those who have already incorporated such techniques as the Morning Pages, Artists' Dates, etc. into their life and found them to be beneficial, do not really need to read this new book, unless it is simply to enjoy Cameron's writing style, (though it's not for everybody). Those who are die hard atheists or agnostics may find her ideas about God hard to bypass in order to consider the others. Those who believe that the craft of writing is like any other craft, requiring serious effort AND innate talent in order to consistently do it well, may be insulted by Cameron's belief that virtually everyone can write well given time alone.
Anyway. Read the first chapter, and if it sounds familiar, put the book back on the shelf. If it sounds intriguing, by all means give it a try.

I reread her books often. This one introduces taking gentle walks in with the other things that work in her books. I can attest since I've been writing Morning Pages for more than a year that they *will* change your life. I've made some real positive changes that I only complained about when I first began. Like water on rock, if you want to change your life and writing life, I'd recommend her books.

Once again Julia Cameron has written a book that will inspire and comfort anyone in pursuit of a dream, creative or not.
I say that because I know that her books are often targetted to artists, however, I find them just as useful for anyone undertaking a new endeavor, for instance, an entreprenuer would greatly appreciate what she has to say about perserverance and moving forward despite fear or obstacles.
The book is broken into weekly 'sessions' which each have a focus or theme. In each section are guided excercises meant to help you explore the idea and used in conjunction with her famous 'Morning Pages' the book can be a great service to helping one focus and get to work on accomplishing a goal.
Highly recommended.

I am loving this book. I've "done" the Artist's Way several times, and each time I feel like I want to continue the journey. Finally, along comes the sequel, and so far so good. It has the same general feel as The Artist's Way, but with the benefit of more years teaching the principles. This is my favorite Julia Cameron title since The Right to Write. She has added many new exercises, and another basic task in addition to the Morning Pages and the Artist's Date. Overall, I'm finding this book is having a profound impact on my creative life, and I'm so glad to have another 12 weeks of Artist's Way experience. Highly recommended for everyone who loved The Artist's Way, and wants to continue the journey.
