Over 30 years after introducing “Morning Pages” in the hugely successful book The Artist’s Way, Julia Cameron turns her attention to creative prayer in her latest book: SEEKING WISDOM: A Spiritual Path to Creative Connection (St. Martin’s Essentials; Jan 11, 2022; $18.99). Julia has inspired millions of people, from Elizabeth Gilbert to Alicia Keyes and Pete Townsend, to Russell Brand, to find a deeper connection to themselves by doing their Morning Pages each day and exploring the creative lessons found in her books.
The origin story of The Artist’s Way: Cameron reveals how, in a time of personal crisis, when she was experiencing alcohol use disorder, her spiritual life became an indispensable support to her artistic life. The tools she created to save herself in her darkest hour—Morning Pages, Artist Dates, and Walks–became the tools she would share with the world through The Artist’s Way. In SEEKING WISDOM she details the origin of these tools, refreshing and reintroducing them, along with a fourth tool, Writing Out Guidance. Through her own life’s example, she highlights the central role that prayer plays in sustaining a creative life.
Hailed by the New York Times as “The Queen of Change,” JULIA CAMERON is credited with starting a movement in 1992 that has brought creativity into the mainstream conversation—in the arts, in business, and in everyday life. She is the best-selling author of more than forty books, fiction and nonfiction; a poet, songwriter, filmmaker and playwright. Commonly referred to as “The Godmother” or “High Priestess” of creativity, her tools are based in practice, not theory, and she considers herself “the floor sample of her own toolkit.” The Artist’s Way has been translated into forty languages and sold over five million copies to date.
