Julia Cameron's books have a way of cropping up in my life when I need them most, and so it was with this simple, wise volume of daily meditations. One of my new year's goals was to put a little spiritual elbow grease toward a particularly rough edge of my personality, and Transitions appeared as if by magic. Unlike some books of this type, the meditations are neither not dated; there's really no suggested or recommended way to digest them, so I enjoyed them on demand. Like The Artist's Way by t ...more

I cannot tell you how many times I've picked up this book and opened to the most perfect page for that moment. It is so comforting. It has one page blurbs on various subjects that are very wise and upbeat. I keep this next to my bed and reach for it in difficulty. I've given this book to many friends in their times of difficulty b/c Transitions can comfort in a very lovingly gentle manner within seconds.

A little, easy-to-read, book of antidotes & thoughts for moving through transitions. I bought it when going through a difficult period, as I'm a fan of Cameron's work. It wasn't my favorite, not because it was faulty - it just didn't offer anything too new or deep for me. If you haven't read her other work, however, it will offer some good insights.

اين جهان چيزي نيست جز مدرسهي عشق؛
روابط ما با زن يا شوهرمان
با فرزندان و والدينمان
با دوستان و اقواممان
اينهادانشگاههايي هستند كه ما ميخواهيم
در آنها بياموزيم عشق و فداكاري
به واقع چه معنايي دارند

a great book

Very stimulating and thought provoking. I really enjoyed the format that the author used. Very helpful in understanding the transition periods in our life.

I rated this three-stars rather than four-stars because I am familiar with Julia Cameron's nonfiction works and didn't think this was as exceptional as The Artist's Way and others. Julia Cameron is a gifted writer and her meditations flowed from the pages. I liked how the layout on each page included a quote from various people ranging from Rumi, Kabir, and Mother Theresa to Amelia Earhart, Lord Byron and Ralph Waldo Emerson. The most important part of the book was the introduction. In this intr ...more

I liked this book alright, but I would recommend that anyone reading it instead reference the index at the back for a prayer pertinent for their current situation rather than read it from beginning to end. It reads more drily that way, and I don’t feel the author intended this.

Such an all encompasing, spiritually uplifting wonderful little book. Beautifully written andcomplete with index at the back if you are looking for a particular inspiration... The perfect before bedtime tid bit or equally good with the morning coffee... Great read !

Writing flows as inspiration and there each one of us can form our own unique prayers lifted to the God who is there and not silent. However, her insights are not spiritually profound and they don't seem to be inter-connected. One thing I appreciate about the book is her affirmations at the end of each chapter. She writes, for instance, "Today, I embrace Spirit as the Lord of my existence. Spirit gives my soul an earthy home." I can take all that and Christianize it as affirmations of my own: ...more

Bought my copy in 2009 but passed it along to my son who was in a slump. So I had to replace it (2012). More Cameron inspiration.

About change in our lives. Quote at the top of each 1-2 page section to reflection on and think about.
