The Vein of Gold: A Journey to Your Creative Heart
In The Vein of Gold: A Journey to Your Creative Heart, Cameron again draws from her extensive artistic and teaching experience to lead readers toward ever-widening creative horizons. An extraordinary book of learning through doing, The Vein of Gold features inspiring teachings on the creative process and more than one hundred imaginative, involving, and energizing tasks. Each task involves the reader in "inner play," leading to authentic growth, renewal, and healing.
Arranged as "a journey to the heart of creativity," the book guides readers through seven kingdoms: The Kingdom of Story, where the formative power of language empowers the creation of our guiding self-image; The Kingdom of Sight, where we learn to receive information holistically and honor our most personal impressions, intuitions, and feelings; The Kingdom of Sound, where we tune in to the melodic flow of creative life, literally making each day more "sound"; The Kingdom of Relationship, where we sharpen the skills and develop the will to choose the companions we can really trust; The Kingdom of Attitude, where the negative self-talk that weighs us down is cast off as we learn to pursue our creative efforts with lighter hearts; The Kingdom of Spirituality, which teaches us to examine and strengthen conscious contact with the higher realms for a working partnership with unsuspected inner resources; and The Kingdom of Possibility, where the reader comes to fully inhabit his or her creative life vision.
