This is the third post in a series on The Artist’s Way: A Spiritual Path to Higher Creativity, a book and a self-study program developed by Julia Cameron in the 1990s. Each week of the program is focused on a theme. In the post, I’ll be looking back on Week 3: Recovering a Sense of Power. By the third week of doing The Artist’s Way, I had found a rhythm and was already starting to see some changes in the way I approached my creativity and expression.
The other day I was working from home and did a little ask-me-anything on my Instagram stories. I received some excellent questions, so I thought I share them here, too.
This is the second in a series of posts about The Artist’s Way: A Spiritual Path to Higher Creativity, a book and a self-study program developed by Julia Cameron in the 1990s. I completed the 12-week program at the end of 2018. By doing the reading and working through the course exercises, I experienced a significant change in my own creative process. The course helped me reclaim my identity as an artist and return to my passions with new energy and confidence. I’ve decided to start this year by revisiting the book and sharing some of my insights.
Lately, I’ve been spending lots of time thinking and talking about creative habits. Over the past year or so, I’ve transformed my creative process through the power of a flexible daily routine built from habits that support my creative exploration, purpose, and well-being. Through a process of experimentation, I discovered there were certain activities that shifted my mindset, helped me feel in alignment, and generally built up my confidence.
