Life Lessons: 125 Prayers and Meditations

Julia Cameron. TarcherPerigee, $15 trade paper (144p) ISBN 978-0-14-313049-9

Writer and creativity guru Cameron (The Artist’s Way) offers advice from her lifelong research in this book of spiritual affirmations. This small book contains 125 prayers and meditations, each less than a page in length, written in an approachable style, and tailored for people who might otherwise avoid organized religion. Those familiar with the language of 12-step programs will find some echoes here, as Cameron puts the wisdom of scriptural teachings into direct, comforting language. Although there isn’t a lot new here, Cameron teaches a very gentle spirituality that is rejuvenating to come back to. The book also includes pages of decorative art that invite concentration. This slim volume will hold appeal for readers looking for inspiration in nontraditional packaging. (Aug.)
