Elizabeth Gilbert may be best know for writing Eat Pray Love, which was a chronicle of a major upheaval and recovery at a time in her life. It also became a smash success as well as a film starring Julie Roberts in 2010. Gilbert has continued to write past the phenomenon of the Eat Pray Love experience and has 2 Ted Talks where she discusses her journey.
The talks offer a candid, self-effacing approach to the creative process. She presents her own path as well as other’s paths to their inspirations, ultimately encouraging the listeners to find their “home”. That place we should all return to as we have both successes and failures in our lives.
Take a listen, it’s worth it.
She has continued to write beyond Eat Pray Love with many books including those posted below:
