Sounds bad, excellent content

The sound quality isn't as bad as "Vein of Gold", but you do have to listen past it. Nevertheless, it's worth listening to if you have the least interest in your creative side. You don't have to quit your job and paint or anything; you can be creative in any way, at anything. This can help you use more of your skills and talents with less angst.

sock

i think julia cameron is great, I love her philosophy and faith.
Unfortunately this recording sounds like it was made with a microphone covered in a sock. why would that be? Better sound quality and I would give this a 4 star review!

Uniquely helpful. I enjoyed every minute of it.

Easy and fun information. Serious info, but presented in a way you can absorb. Funny and witty.

The Artist's Way - Jumpstart your creativity!

I am pleased to say that this audio book is a worthy addition to my library. It dovetails seamlessly with Julia Cameron's flagship book 'The Artist's Way' giving valuable context as well as highlighting the key lessons in the 12 week course. The audio book is divided into three sessions: Parts 1 and 2 are from a lively seminar, whilst the final session is interview style. Julia Cameron draws upon a lifetime's work and experience (and tried and tested tools e.g. Morning Pages) and therein lies the beauty and value of this recording. Furthermore I have no doubt many listeners and reflective practitioners will enjoy and reap the rewards from the advice and creative insights discussed. To get the most out of this recording I highly recommend reading the book 'The Artists Way' to which this recording refers; or equally stimulating 'The Right to Write'.

Reflections

A wonderful insight into the power behind the Artists way and Julia Cameron's fantastic creativity. The listener learns a little of how Julia thinks but also her compassion for fledgling artists and the experienced. An enjoyable but also educational book.

Be intentional

This is a God sent book, as I'm typing this am listening to Julia talk about the 'crazy maker'. I made a conscience decision to prioritise ME! And this is one of the greatest gifts I have gifted myself to date.

A great companion to The Artist's Way book

I have done the Artist's Way twice but this was still so informative and useful. It really helped to feel even more aware of how our society is so anti creative and how we are discouraged from something that should be natural for people. Even though it was recorded in 1993, it still holds up. I would be very interested to know how Julia sees things like social media or the internet in relation to TAW so an update would be good. The only thing she gets wrong is this idea that creativity is much more acceptable in 'Europe'. American's are often so America centered and they always relate everything to their society and dismiss how it's the same elsewhere. That's my only critism though. I enjoyed it! Really love Julia!

A life changing, self searching, reflective book

A great book especially if you are ready to be challenged. It enables you dig deeper into self, confront excuses, providing tools to create your own change. An opportunity to embrace, discover and enjoy the real you inspired through creativity.

Excellent read / audio

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes, you feel as if you are part of the audience listening to some very sage advice delivered with great humour - I could have listened for hours.

Have you listened to any of Julia Cameron’s other performances? How does this one compare?

No, this is the first of her books I have listened to and am currently searching for another.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Not that I recall - I just felt really engaged in the delivery and my only disappointment was when it finished - could have done with a couple more hours.

Any additional comments?

One of the best audio books I have listened to and so motivating for anyone wanting to get out of the starting blocks.

Life changing

If you’ve ever felt a creative stirring and a sudden flow of ‘rational’ thoughts listing off the reasons why your creativity can never be expressed, this is for you.

Short, at times funny, and potentially life changing. You won’t regret listening to this .
