"Cameron (The Artist's Way) has written a book addressed to our times, offering advice on how to begin to fulfill one's dreams in times of recession or austerity."--Library Journal
"Many artistic and imaginative souls are troubled and often blocked by money worries. They are unsure about the future and afraid to take risks since they have no Plan B to put into action. In response to this grave situation, Cameron speaks to the darkness and the dread in creative people's hearts with an alternative: the prosperous heart which recognizes "a spiritual bottom line, not a fiscal one. Our faith, not our cash flow, is what brings to our lives comfort and ease....The book is chock-full of other down-to-earth material such as myths about money, trusting that we live in a benevolent universe and that things will turn out okay, clearing clutter away, finding community, and taking to heart the spiritual virtues and practices of forgiveness, kindness, generosity, and perseverance."

Praise for THE ARTIST'S WAY...
THE ARTIST S WAY by Julia Cameron is not exclusively about writing it is about discovering and developing the artist within whether a painter, poet, screenwriter or musician but it is a "lot" about writing. If you have always wanted to pursue a creative dream, have always wanted to play and create with words or paints, this book will gently get you started and help you learn all kinds of paying-attention techniques; and that, after all, is what being an artist is all about. It s about learning to pay attention.
--Anne Lamott, Mademoiselle
The premise of the book is that creativity and spirituality are the same thing, they come from the same place. And we were created to use this life to express our individuality, and that over the course of a lifetime that gets beaten out of us. [THE ARTIST S WAY] helped me put aside my fear and not worry about whether the record would be commercial.
--Grammy award-winning singer Kathy Mattea
Julia Cameron brings creativity and spirituality together with the same kind of step-by-step wisdom that Edgar Cayce encouraged. The result is spiritual creativity as a consistent and nourishing part of daily life.
--Venture Inward
I never knew I was a visual artist until I read Julia Cameron s THE ARTIST S WAY.
--Jannene Behl in Artist s Magazine
Julia Cameron s landmark book THE ARTIST S WAY helped me figure out who I really was as an adult, not so much as an artist but as a person. And award-winning journalist and poet, Cameron s genius is that she doesn t tell readers what they should do to achieve or who they should be instead she creates a map for readers to start exploring these questions themselves.
--Michael F. Melcher, Law Practice magazine
This is not a self-help book in the normative sense. It is simply a powerful book that can challenge one to move into an entirely different state of personal expression and growth.
--Nick Maddox, Deland Beacon
THE ARTIST S WAY (with its companion volume THE ARTIST S WAY MORNING PAGES JOURNAL) becomes a friend over time, not just a journal. Like a journal, it provokes spontaneous insights and solutions; beyond journaling, it establishes a process that is interactive and dynamic.
--Theresa L. Crenshaw, M.D., San Diego Union-Tribune
If you really want to supercharge your writing, I recommend that you get a copy of Julia Cameron s book THE ARTIST S WAY. I m not a big fan of self-help books, but this book has changed my life for the better and restored my previously lagging creativity.
--Jeffrey Bairstow, Laser Focus World
Working with the principle that creative expression is the natural direction of life, Cameron developed a three month program to recover creativity. THE ARTIST S WAY shows how to tap into the higher power that connects human creativity and the creative energies of the universe.
--Mike Gossie, Scottsdale Tribune
THE ARTIST S WAY is the seminal book on the subject of creativity and an invaluable guide to living the artistic life. Still as vital today or perhaps even more so than it was when it was first published in 1992, it is a provocative and inspiring work. Updated and expanded, it reframes THE ARTIST S WAY for a new century.
--Branches of Light
THE ARTIST S WAY has sold over 3 million copies since its publication in 1992. Cameron still teaches it because there is sustained demand for its thoughtful, spiritual approach to unblocking and nurturing creativity. It is, dare we say, timeless.
--Nancy Colasurdo, FOXBusiness


Praise for VEIN OF GOLD, the second volume in the ARTIST S WAY trilogy
For those seeking the wellspring of creativity, this book, like its predecessor, is a solid gold diving rod.
