Walking in This World picks up where Julia Cameron's best-selling book on the creative process, The Artist's Way, left off to present readers with a second course, part two in an amazing journey toward discovering our human potential. Full of valuable new strategies and techniques for breaking through difficult creative ground, this is the "intermediate level" of the Artist's Way program.
A profoundly inspired work by the leading authority on the subject of creativity, Walking in This World is an invaluable tool for artists.

I'm a contemporary artist. Listening to audio books is a great boon, keeping me happy during the many hours I spend alone in the studio.
i am utterly inspired and invigorated in my creativity!
i havent heard her perform before. but i felt as if julia herself was speaking to me
i absolutely loved the book. i listened to it in shortish chunks of about 40 minutes a time, and was inspired.
This is a religious book. Not a book on creativity. Utterly useless and misleading. Very upset I wasted a credit on it. Avoid.

This was the first book of Cameron's I've read/listened to all the way through. While we own The Artist's Way, I kept putting it down and focusing on doing the morning pages that are the main focal point of the book, and when I forgot to do them ( which inevitably happened), I never delved back into reading the book.
Walking In This World is a fantastic audiobook that's well-narrated and helps the creative create nourishing, inspiring routines that helps prompt them to create more. The main practice, like the title suggests, is the importance of walking in stimulating ideas. I do this everyday and have done so for years, and can testify that walking for an hour or so has helped me as a writer,blogger, and photographer. I see the world differently when I'm walking, and get ideas for my work and side projects.
But the book goes into more elements than just the importance of walking, and it's actually the perfect book to listen to while you are out for an evening stroll. I would also consider buying it in paperback too because at the end of each chapter Cameron gives questions for you to answer.
I enjoy audio books and blogging.

This book did not consist of many characters.
Writing three daily pages, and artist dates.
I liked her first book, but this is really off track. Preachy and uninspiring. Very obvious suggestions, nothing new here! Patronizing and judgmental. One of her similes is, "as needy as a child of divorce," implying at all children of divorced parents are needy. Wow!
Reread the first book and save your money!
Preachy, very preachy. I couldn't finish it.
"a life saver"
having previously read the Artist way this is just to complete that course. It will reinforce the learning and hopefully spark new creativity in you.
"the narrator ruins the book."
The narrator at the very beginning who introduces the the book and the narrator. I would change to her. The current narrator is difficult to listen to her. The book needs to be edited to suit more contemporary readers.
I was looking for a book about this topic.
Her voice sounds as if she has cold. It will be betterbif someone with more soft voice to read this spiritual reference book.
