Come explore ways to face and resolve fear, remove emotional scar tissue, discard damaging old ideas, and strengthen your confidence. Move beyond pain and constriction and learn to recognize, nurture, and protect your dreams.

This weekend, working with a combination of experiential exercises, lectures, readings, and question-and-answer sessions, you will experience an intensive, guided encounter with your own self, including your private villains, champions, wishes, fears, dreams, hopes, and triumphs.

Julia Cameron

Julia Cameron has had a remarkable career -- one which has in turn given remarkable help to millions of others.  Herself an award-winning poet, playwright, and filmmaker, she has written twenty-five books, ranging from her widely praised novel, The Dark Room, to her volumes of children's poems and prayers.  Despite her extensive film and theatre credits, Cameron is best known for her hugely successful works on creativity. The Artist's Way has sold over three million copies worldwide; her follow-up bestsellers The Vein of Gold, Walking in this World, and The Right to Write are likewise flagship books which are taught in universities, churches, human potential centers and even in tiny clusters in the jungles of Panama.

Credited with having founded a new human potential movement which has enabled millions of people to realize their dreams, Cameron eschews the title "creativity expert," preferring to describe herself simply as an artist. "Artists have always mentored, I just do it on a wider scale."

Citing her work as an authentic spiritual path, Cameron's work has been embraced by such diverse spiritual groups as Buddhists, Sufis, Roman Catholics, Church of Religious Science and Unity with "quite a few British Wiccans thrown in."  Her three affirmative prayer books, Heartsteps, Blessings, and Transitions are widely used, beloved for both their optimism and pragmatism. 
 

The Artist's Way

Despite extensive film and theatre credits, Cameron remains best known for her works on creativity.  The Artist's Way has sold nearly a million and a half copies worldwide.  Her follow-up best sellers, The Vein of Gold and The Right to Write are flagship books.  Credits range from Rolling Stone to The New York Times.  She has taught everywhere from The Smithsonian to Northwestern University, where she served as writer in residence in film.  As a filmmaker, she collaborated with former husband Martin Scorsese on three films.  As a playwright, her work has graced such prestigious stages as Princeton's McCarter Theatre, and The Denver Center for the Performing Arts.
 

"Artists have always mentored, I do it on a wider scale.  My books and workshops are not creative theory," she explains. "They spring straight out of my own creative practice.  When we are unblocked we can have remarkable and diverse adventures.  Most of us have no idea of our real creative height.  We are much more gifted than we know.  My tools help to nurture those gifts."
