Here is a summary listing of posts I have written here at Reptitude specifically related to The Artist’s Way, meaning the book and the creativity study program. The posts generally follow the same order of topics as they are mentioned in Julia Cameron’s famous creativity manual, The Artist’s Way: A Spiritual Path to Higher Creativity. Although I have touched on many different aspects of creativity and creative blocks in these posts, the book itself, as you might expect, is far more thorough and detailed and brings up many more facets of understanding and enhancing creativity.
To gain the full benefit of the Artist’s Way program you would definitely want to read the book and work through at least some of the tasks or exercises listed at the end of each chapter. That said, you might wish to follow along here as you read the book, using the posts as an additional information resource on this exciting, powerful creative journey. I wish you “Bon Voyage!” as you embark on this fascinating (and demanding) “Course in Discovering and Recovering Your Creative Self”.
