Walking in This World - Initial Meetup and Discussing Week 1

If you'd like to take your creative recovery and discovery further, please join us!  What better way to enjoy the Spring than to be out walking and creating?

Walking in this World is Julia Cameron's sequel to The Artist's Way, and is a follow-on twelve week course.  Each week includes an artist's date and morning pages, with the additional basic tool of a weekly walk.

A few people have expressed an interest in working through the course together so this will be an initial meetup to talk about how we might do that, including where, when and how we have subsequent meetings.

We'll also be talking about experiences of Week 1 and the book generally.

There will be a one-time fee of £3 towards the meetup.com subscription costs.  In addition, please buy something to eat or drink at the venue, which will be the Cafe in the Crypt at St Martin in the Fields, Trafalgar Square.

Anyone who'd like to come is welcome.  Please RSVP and keep your RSVP up to date.  If you have any questions or comments, feel free to post them below (you'll need to open up the full message by clicking on "LEARN MORE").

    An update on the arrangements for this group. We used the initial meetup yesterday for a general discussion and to decide how to take this forward given people's varying availability and locations. Thanks to everyone who came and took part.

    PLEASE NOTE THERE'S A NEW MEETUP TIME, VENUE AND STARTING DATE. I'm also sending out an event announcement for the next meetup, which people will be able to RSVP to.

    Meetup day and time: Sundays at 11.30am Venue: To be confirmed. Central London, and able to have brunch if want to.

    Starting: Sunday 17 March

    Starting point: Discussing Week 1.
    In advance, please read Chapter 1 and try the tasks and the basic tools, which are explained in the book - morning pages, an artist's date and a walk

    Please note that this group is for Julia Cameron's Walking in This World 12 week course, which is different from The Artist's Way 12 week course. Anyone who would like to share experiences of Walking in This World is very welcome.

    Hi Nisha,

    The initial meetup and discussing Week 1 is definitely going ahead on Sunday 3 March at 2.00pm, at Cafe in the Crypt. I hope you can make it. Meetups after that (ie Week 2 onwards) may be the same day/time/venue or we might adjust it, depending on what suits people. We'll talk about this on 3 March.

    Therefore, if anyone's interested but can't come on 3 March, they can let me know their general availability and we can try to consider that as well, to see if they could join us from Week 2. No promises, but we can try. If someone in that situation posts here, I'll contact them by email via their meetup.com profile. I've emailed Tina and K.

    Hope that clarifies things. Let me know if you have any questions.

    Looking forward to seeing you on Sunday if you can come. Please RSVP if so.

    Thanks,

    Max

    Hi guys,

    I'd like to get together for this too.
    If we're not meeting this Sunday, please do post the Meetup date and I'll try and clear my diary to join the group.

    Many thanks.

    i read chapter one this weekend and was unconsciously inspired to spoil myself, walk and create!! i think the ground work of the artists way was importnat to me in following this book, i think its less prescriptive or rather deosnt lead you by the hand in quite the same way. although at a slightly different stage i do want to stay in touch with this group

    On your own at some point during the week - yes, I hope! At the meetup, no. Except to the counter to buy a drink ;)

    Thanks for your comments. I'll get in touch directly by email with anyone who's interested but can't come on 3 March, to see if we can arrange subsequent meetings at a day and time to suit you. If anyone else is in the same situation, please post here and I'll contact you directly.

    Best wishes,

    Max

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
