These are the barest bones of Natalie Goldberg\'s revolutionary writing and life practice, presented here in book form for the first time. The True Secret of Writing provides a whole new method of writing that Goldberg developed since the publication of her classic, Writing Down the Bones. The capstone to forty years of teaching, The True Secret of Writing is Goldberg\'s Zen boot camp. Stories of her own search for truth and clarity as well as her students\' breakthroughs and insights give moving testament to how brilliantly her unique, tough-love method works. As Goldberg says, \"To write is to be empowered ... Writing is not just for someone who wants to write the great American novel.\" Learning \"the true secret\" allows you to mine the rich awareness in your mind and to ground and empower yourself in a way that leads to deep, eloquent self-expression. Goldberg\'s beautiful homages to the work of other great teachers and observers of mind, life, and love provide further secrets and inspiration to which you will return again and again. In her inimitable way, Goldberg will inspire you to pick up the pen, get writing, and keep going. The True Secret of Writing helps you with your writing--and your life.
