What a treat to get to here this wonderful conversation between Julia Cameron and Natalie Goldberg. They each spoke with such grace and wisdom…. and even when their perspectives were divergent they spoke with real respect and caring. I loved listening to this program.

This is a very inspiring message because even if I don't necessarily become a writer, the disciplines she suggests are leading me to such a deeper understanding of who I really am and what my path truly is that I've become more and more excited to write each day and learn more about myself/spirit.

The contrasting energies brought into this gorgeous conversation are mesmerizing; I've listened to this work three times and know I will many more times because the essence continues to shift as I open to each perspective from these wise women. Thank you Natalie, Julia and Tami for a beautiful sharing.

As a writer, I found these interviews with Julia Cameron and Natalie Goldberg very helpful. They are both great teachers, and speak directly to the kinds of issues relevant to those of us who are writing. Highly recommended.

this is a very interesting, and sometimes inspiring, talk by two very interesting and inspiring women. I had hoped for more detail about writing but what it does have is very helpful and, once again, inspiring.
