Why Walk? | Julia Cameron Live



During the last session we read a101 Artist Date list, and brainstormed some additional ideas to add to  a SMA list.

Tonight I’m posting a few links about the third Artist Way tool that Julia Cameron added after the first book, The Artist Way.

The Artist Walk. Yes, it can overlap with the Artist Date but sometimes… a walk is just a walk. One foot in front of the other moving us forward, clearing our thoughts, clearing our heads.

In many Buddhist traditions a meditation practice is walking meditation.  In Northern British Columbia there is the appropriately named Birken Forest monastery. They hold their meditations both inside and outside because the monastery is completely surrounded by Crown land and there are no visible neighbours.


About canmexartistway

I am a happily retired teacher/expat to be now relocated to the spectacularly beautiful Harbour City of Nanaimo on Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada. During snowbird six I decided to morph from snowbird to Mexpat! I'm taking the 'scenic route' geographically and metaphorically during the next 5 to 6 months as I downsize, downsize, downsize in preparation for an international move in the fall.
