Publisher's Summary

A dynamic new creative-renewal program from the woman who has inspired millions to discover and recover their creative souls.

In The Prosperous Heart, Julia Cameron presents a ten-week program for using your creative heart and soul to lead you to prosperity in all the areas of your life. With inspiring new daily tools and strategies that follow in the footsteps of Cameron's groundbreaking The Artist's Way, this book guides readers in developing a life that is as full and as satisfying as they ever thought possible.

Drawing on her decades of experience working with artists as an expert on the creative process, Cameron shines a clear light on the path to forging a direct relationship between the passion that ignites our creative work and the more practical aspects of living our lives (for example, how one can keep a roof over one's head without losing track of the soul). In this wise volume, Cameron gives readers the courage and permission to live their lives as they create their art: purposely and fully.

Old WIne in New Bottles

The over arching issue I had with the book, and I have almost all of Julia Cameron's written work, is her scratchy, monotonous delivery. Almost 6 hours of it. WHen I first met her back in the 90s, at a workshop for her breakout sensation The Artist's Way, she was ethereal. Like a faerie spirit. She was able to weave magic out of air. Easy listening. Time and life have apparently taken its toll on her voice, and I hope she opts next time for another more mellifluous narrator.

Now to the book: maybe because I have all of her variations on the central theme of Artist's Way, I have become jaded. I keep waiting for another breakout AHA Julia moment, and instead, it is just Artist's Way (as it relates to diet, money, relationships etc) with a new title. Her main credo is creativity, and yet she hasn't really plowed any new creative ground since her seminal work.

I know each new generation needs telling the same advice, but it smacks of crass commerciality to restage her basic premise in a new title every year.

Umm...bought the physical book instead

The reading delivery was flat, monotonous and unemotional. I finished it and much of the content was worth keeping the book around for although I still find (even with the book purchase) that many of the stories she tells are long, boring and feel like fluff to fill up a book with content. I did a lot of fast forwarding.

I own or have purchases nearly all of her books by the way.

The words deserve better Narration

I love Julia Cameron’s work. But she was not the right person to narrate this book.
Really hard to listen to.

It was hard to enjoy this

The information is interesting, but the narration is terrible. Like an old woman lecturing you and mumbling... It was rough.
