The Artist’s Way

This post is using a stolen title. Of course, it’s from Julia Cameron’s major work, The Artist’s Way.

If you have been wishing and pining and hoping to write, buy a copy of Julia’s book and dive in. You’ll take up daily writing called “morning pages” and probably some creative juices will start flowing, if that’s what you are looking for.

I did the book’s program for a year, followed by a writing course with Roland Fishman in the mid-nineties. Those two activities were a springboard to winning a contract with Simon and Schuster and writing Teach Yourself Yoga.

The practice of yoga is artistry of a different kind, one that is interpreted through the body like dance. When your yoga practice is orchestrated by a serene mind and animated by your spirit, it is a near-perfect creation. Your personal best.

For inspiration about creativity by the author of a book probably everyone except me has read – Eat, Pray, Love (Elizabeth Gilbert), have a look at this link. It turns out Ms. Gilbert is a great speaker too.
