Description: 

  Join Julia Cameron for a 5 day retreat on the stunning island of Santorini, where she will be offering her signature course - 'The Artist's Way' immersion.  

The Artist’s Way movement began more than two decades ago as author Julia Cameron shared her ideas with a few friends in her living room. Today, The Artist’s Way has helped millions of people around the world discover - and recover - their creativity.

In this intimate setting you will be able to interact with Julia and fellow creatives in a more meaningful and profound way as writing in this setting is expansive and joyful.

Julia Cameron, hailed by the New York Times as “The Queen of Change,” is the best-selling author of more than forty books, both fiction and nonfiction; a poet, songwriter, filmmaker; and playwright. The Artist’s Way has been translated into forty languages and sold more than 5 million copies to date.

On this exclusive retreat expect to jump-start your creative process, refresh your own thinking around creativity, and introduce you to a supportive creative community.

The retreat classes will be a mix of talks, practical tools, Q&A, and experiential work in small groups.

About the speaker, Julia Cameron

She has written thirty books, ranging from her widely-praised, hard-hitting crime novel The Dark Room to her volumes of children’s poems and prayers.

Despite her extensive film and theater credits, which include such diverse work as Miami Vice and the prize-winning romantic comedy God’s Will, which she both wrote and directed, Cameron is best known for her hugely successful works on creativity.

The Artist’s Way has sold more than four million copies worldwide, and her followup bestsellers Finding Water, 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 deep in the jungles of Panama.

Credited with founding a new human potential movement that has enabled millions to realize their creative dreams, Cameron eschews the title creativity expert, preferring instead to describe herself simply as an artist. “Artists have always mentored, I just do it on a wider scale.”

“My books are not creative theory,” she explains. “They spring straight out of my own creative practice. In a sense, I am the floor sample of my own tool kit. When we are unblocked we can have remarkable and diverse adventures.”

She knows of what she speaks. A writer since the age of eighteen, Cameron has published highly praised short stories, award-winning essays and hard-hitting political journalism. Her credits range from Rolling Stone to The New York Times. As a teacher, she has taught everywhere from The Smithsonian to Esalen, The New York Times to Northwestern University, where she served as writer in residence in film.

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.

As a filmmaker, she collaborated with former husband Martin Scorsese on “three films and one daughter, Domenica.” As a playwright, her work has graced such prestigious stages as Princeton’s McCarter Theater, The Denver Center of the Performing Arts and the tiny Taos Community Auditorium in her hometown. It was there that she first workshopped her musical “Avalon,” under the guidance of legendary director John Newland. On her musicals, Cameron serves as composer as well as libretto-writer and lyricist. This musical aspect of her career began in her mid-forties and she laughs, “I have only myself to blame for suddenly sprouting a new career. If you teach unblocking, you do get unblocked!”
