Book Description

26 Sep 2002

Walking in this World presents the next step in Julia Cameron's course of discovering and recovering the creative self. The Artist's Way, a classic cherished by aspiring and working artists who have experienced its benefits, is a groundbreaking book that offered an original and astoundingly effective 12-week course in recovering inherent creativity by minimising life's 'blocks' - self sabotage, jealously, guilt, lack of confidence and other inhibiting forces. Walking in this World shows readers how to inhabit this world with a sense of renewed creativity. Full of valuable new strategies and techniques for breaking through difficult creative ground, this is the 'intermediate-level' of the Artist's Way programme.

A profoundly inspired work by the leading authority on the subject of creativity, Walking in this World is destined to become a true classic.

Product Description

Amazon Review

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

5.0 out of 5 stars Better than the Artist's Way? 27 Mar 2008
I read this book a long time ago but I do recall that I found it more to my taste than The Artist's Way (although I also found The Artist's Way useful at the time). I'm writing this review mostly to balance another reviewer's very negative 1 star rating. While Walking in this World did repeat some of what was in The Artist's Way I found the additional information very useful.

I won't go into specifics as it was quite a while since I read Walking in this World but I do remember being inspired by it at the time. I now find I refer more to Eric Maisel's Fearless Creating: A Step-by-step Guide to Starting and Completing Your Work of Art (Inner Work Book) but would still recommend this book if you liked Cameron's The Artist's Way and would like to read more.

3.0 out of 5 stars A light version of The Artist's Way 14 Dec 2009
By Lou Ice
If I'd not read and studied The Artist's Way and The Vein of Gold I would've given this book 5 stars. Even if the book is very good I was a bit disappointed that it wasn't as good as Cameron previous books.

Walking in this World feels like a repetition and a poor copy of The Artist's Way. The exercises are not as many and not as time-consuming as the ones in previous books. It's a light version and it's fine if you want to re-connect with your creativity and spirituality. For me it was perfect as I've been quite busy this year and it's been good going through a chapter now and again to help me get back on track.

Funnily enough each chapter has dealt with something I really needed to work on at that very moment. It's good with the constant reminders of claiming your right to solitude and support and also being protective of your work without isolating yourself totally.

Even if this book is more "passive" than The Artist's Way and Vein of Gold the essays are still well worth reading.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful, helpful, inspirational 23 Mar 2009
By Amoyan
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Shame on Mr No Name for giving a measly one star to this lovely book (if he'd like me to point him in the direction of some books which are far more deserving of the one-star treatment I'd be happy to). Yes, this is very much a sequel to the Artist's Way, but it's just as delicious, thoughtful and inspiring and it has helped me greatly in many ways. I definitely recommend it. I love Julia Cameron's work and find her approach to be truly nurturing and comforting.

1.0 out of 5 stars Mining the same seam 3 May 2006
Julia Cameron has some interesting ideas and good self-development/self-awareness exercises. However,if you have already bought one of her books, leave well alone. This book seems to be a thinly disguised reworking of The Artists Way - and thus it has less to offer the audience than the author's bank balance.

I read this book a few years ago to question what creativity meant for me as I did a lot of art in my childhood/youth but then went to a corporate career and forgot about arts. Visiting the Tate Museum in London, I saw this book in the bookshop and it suddenly felt like the book to read to revisit this forgotten part of my life. I found it great as it made me question creativity in my life, asked how my creativity was promoted when I was a child, what importance it has for me, etc. I found the book really great for people who would like to have more creativity in their lives and don't really know how to start. It is really inspirational, with great advice, quotes from famous artists and all this is very nicely worded. Thanks so much Julia! It helped me start a part time painting activity that I would never have started without this book. I found that now that I have obstacles in my everyday artistic practice I also have to read more practical books, like "Fearless Creating" by E. Maisel. However I still refer to Julia Cameron's book for inspiration!
