Publisher Joel Fotinos in Conversation with Julia Cameron


An Evening Book Event & Lecture

Monday, January 31, 2022 7:00 – 8:30 pm ET

Author Julia Cameron changed the way the world thinks about creativity when she first published
The Artist’s Way: A Spiritual Path to Higher Creativity thirty years ago. Over five million copies later, she now turns her attention to creative prayer, which she believes is a key facet of the creative life. In Seeking Wisdom, a 6 Week Artist’s Way Program, readers, too, will learn to pray. This evening Julia Cameron will be in conversation with her longtime editor Joel Fotinos, about her new book, Seeking Wisdom: A Spiritual Path to Creative Connection.

Seeking Wisdom, Julia traces her own creative journey, and reveals that prayer is what led her forward at a time of personal crisis. Unexpectedly, prayer became an indispensable support to her artistic life. The tools she created to save herself in her darkest hour became the tools she would share with the world through The Artist Way. Seeking Wisdom details the origin of these tools, and by Julia Cameron’s example, the central role that prayer plays in sustaining a life as an artist.

She will discuss the mindful collection of prayer practices that can open our creative souls that she includes in Seeking Wisdom. This path takes us beyond traditional religious rituals, welcoming all regardless of their beliefs and backgrounds. As you journey through each week of the program you’ll explore prayers of petition, gratitude, creativity, and more. Along the way, the three beloved tools of The Artist’s Way—Morning Pages, Artist Dates, and Walks—are refreshed and reintroduced, to provide a proven, grounded framework for growth and development.

Additionally, Julia will introduce us to a fourth tool, Writing Out Guidance, which she believes is a powerful practice that will greatly aid aspiring artists. So join us for a wonderful evening of talk and creative guidance.

Each ticket includes your own hardcopy of the book
“Seeking Wisdom”. The book will be mailed after the event to participants with the current U.S. mailing address. We cannot mail the book internationally. Please allow 2 – 4 weeks for delivery.

“Julia Cameron’s new book, Seeking Wisdom, carries on the author’s tradition of magically changing lives, hearts, habits and attitudes. Julia writes about her own life and about writing and living and in this six-week guide to contemplation, prayer and seeking the living presence, Julia does again what she has done since writing the Artist’s Way―she leads us into the real questions and answers that lie in our path and points to contemplation of the Higher Power in our creative inner lives and points us to the spiritual approach–prayer, work, writing, and living. A master of her craft of giving to others what her inner guides have taught her, I promise you will come away from reading her new book, as I did, with renewed creative zest and energy, as well as insight into your own spiritual possibilities as a creative person. Get this book―Seeking Wisdom; it holds magical wisdom and genuine truth.”

―Judy Collins, Singer, Songwriter, Author

In Seeking Wisdom, Julia Cameron continues her work as a masterful guide, offering a path of creative recovery by asking us to personalize our sense of God through our own intimate practice of prayer. Both grounded and innovative, this book casts writing as praying on the page to everything larger than us. Bring your whole self to the journey of this book and you will touch the eternal link between creativity and spirituality. This book will help you come alive. It will help you play your instrument and sing your song.

—Mark Nepo, author of the #1 bestseller The Book of Awakening: the Life You Want by Being Present to the Life You Have
