Week 12: The End of the Walk

16 Apr

Well, they took 12 months instead of 12 weeks to finish The Artist’s Way by Julia Cameron, and that’s how long they took to finish Walking in This World, too. For the past year, the 4 Chicks have walked and talked their way through this second book together. To celebrate this completion, and in the spirit of Cameron’s many excellent creative exercises in her books, I inspired the 4 Chicks to hold a “Letting Go” fire ceremony, burning their fears, frustrations and other negative feelings that might otherwise block their future creative paths, as well as a whimsical “Dream Planting” activity, articulating their top three creative dreams for the future and giving them fertile ground in which to grow.

If I, the Muse, inspire you as well–be it writing, illustration, music, drama or any other artistic endeavor–consider bringing together three fellow sojourners and continue further down your own creative path today.

    Making it all the way through The Artist’s Way is a huge achievement. Congratulations to you all. I wish I’d had that kind of community when I was doing it!

      Thanks, Julie. You are certainly one who understands the power of supporting one another, like your awesome 12×12 Challenge. We Chicks found Cameron’s second book that we just finished, Walking in This World, just as inspiring as Artist’s Way. Great stuff!
