In Walking in This World
Julia Cameron offers a 12-week course crammed full of practical tips on how to rejuvenate the creative life. What happens when you get stuck and can't create? What should you do when you can't solve a problem or move into the next stage of goal achievement? Take a walk. Seriously. Cameron, who has already written successfully on the science of human creativity, suggests that a weekly walk helps to clear the mind, focus the energies and re-establish the priorities. Her advice is not just for artists, writers and musicians. Everyone has areas of life where creative problem solving is required. Cameron believes that getting in touch with the deep sources of inspiration will help us solve business problems, relationship problem and become more spiritual, whole and positive as individuals.
Along with the practical suggestions, on every page there are memorable quotes from creative people that support Cameron's point. While this book is practical and inspiring, like many self-help books, it is over-written and repetitious. Cameron's advice is excellent, but she could probably have made her points in half the space. Sometimes her own creativity errs on the side of cliché and sentimental excess, but despite these criticisms, Walking in This World points a way forward for those who are seeking a more meaningful, creative and spiritual way of life. --Dwight Longenecker
