All of the relationships in your life are masterpieces. You need to be able to look back over and see what your answers have been telling you. That marginally speaks English, but not always. I am not an artist and became intimidated because these people were all artists. The format where some exercises are in the book and some are suggested at the end leads to too much scattered, imporant work.

Letters to My Dad Lea Redmond. It must be the equivalent of "the inner goddess" from The Fifty Shades of Grey or something. View all 10 comments.
I say "or not" because she says you don't have to do all the exercises to reap the benefits of creative recovery, but there is still maybe something helpful in there for you if you do them. There's more pseudo-psychotherapeutic talk than any actual propositions of inviting creativity I read each chapter thoroughly.
It's better camion you have people who will call you on your bullshit when you start wimping out. Letters to My Mom Lea Redmond.
FYI the book was originally published in ; my print copy looks like it is from ; and I bought the 10th anniversary Kindle version.
El Camino del Artista
The biggest takeaway for me was morning pages--writing, by longhand, three pages of stream of consciousness stuff going on in your head to get it out of the way. Every Note Played Lisa Genova. The last two times, I went through it with a local group that I gathered and facilitated. It wasn't a complete wash, but the book wasn't really written for people who studied creative writing in college.

Years later, I led a book group on this book and we had a wonderful time working through the book, growing closer as a group and feeling stronger in our individual ways of being artistic.
I Another book that has changed my life! However, I must warn that there is an ugly side to what Julia Cameron preaches here and I won't endorse that. Every time, I learn something new -- about myself, about creativity, about my hopes and dreams.
The Artist's Way by Julia Cameron
