Julia-Cameron1Julia Cameron has had a remarkable career, which in turn has given remarkable help to others. Herself an award-winning poet, playwright, and filmmaker, she has written 30 books, ranging from her widely-praised, hard-hitting crime novel The Dark Room to her volumes of children's poems and prayers.

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.

Learning from Life's Lessons
All too often, we yearn for a more spiritual life but tell ourselves it's too difficult.

But, the smallest prayer is heard and answered. The simplest overture meets with a loving response. Each of the prayers in Julia Cameron's new book, Life Lessons: 125 Prayers and Meditations, is a starting point. Taken collectively, they offer an approach to God that is powerful as well as simple.

These prayers not only allow us to reach out to God, but they allow God to reach out to us.

The book is called Life Lessons because each entry is a corrective to commonly held misconceptions of the divine. Like the postures assumed in hatha yoga, they stretch us gently. Through these prayers, we learn more of ourselves and the divine.

Listen as Julia joins hosts Andrea and Lisa to share insights from the book.
