This week I get to spend time with Julia Cameron, the Author of The Artist’s Way. I am so excited that she is coming here to Edmonton on October 5th, to a sold out event. Luckily I bought my ticket back in March.
I have facilitated her program on more than one occasion over the years and have another one starting in January. The Artist’s Way monthly meeting.
According to this New York Times article, Julia Cameron invented the way people renovate the creative soul, and I think I agree. Have you ever worked through The Artist’s Way spiritual Journey. Most of us have heard of morning pages or artist’s dates but don’t really know much about the whole journey.
The Artist’s way is 12 weeks (or modules) of self care, creativity and stepping out of your comfort zone. I have facilitated this program over the 12 weeks, but in January we will be starting a 12 month facilitated program. As I have found in our very busy lives that it is not always possible to commit to show up for 12 weeks to something. Monthly check ins allow us to work at whatever pace we need to while still having that interaction with others and their feedback.
We will meet each month in person, here in Edmonton on the third Wednesday of each month, and we will discuss the chapter and how we are working through the program.

The Artist’s way is an amazing journey into ourselves, our creativity, and our spirit.
I am thinking of also starting an online version again for people who are unable to join us in person, if this is something you might be interested in let me know. [email protected] It is a commitment you would be making to yourself for the year.
Have an Amazingly creative Day,
