Product Description

Review

“Oriah has the gift of being able to slip inside the soul’s secret and brings its desire to voice. The Call is at once fierce in its urgency for Becoming and yet so patient in its compassion for our frailty. Her grounding intuition is: if you attend to your depths, they will guide, shelter and transform you. The Call is a gift of healing and renewal. Enjoy it!”
John O’Donohue, author of international bestsellers ‘Anam Cara’ and ‘Eternal Echoes’

This book confirmed what I knew already, God is all around us and within us at all times. Oriah teaches us to access his presence within us and use this presence to enhance our lives and that of others. Inspiring.

Format: Hardcover
`The call' is the moving and stunning conclusion to an epic trilogy that began with `the invitation' and continued with `the dance'. This is a book that opens a window into your heart and which delves down into the very depths of ones soul, exploring what we know of ourselves through the eyes of other people thus handing us a mirror to look into. It helps the reader to explore who they are as an individual by understanding ultimately what it means to be human, by what makes us unique, distinctive and most singular as human beings. By letting go you are able to be honest with yourself and through courage find out much more than you would have thought possible, which will shock you, surprise you and touch your heart. This by far has to be one of the most truth-drawing books that I have ever encountered, where the author reaches out to you with her brave humanity as a poet and lover with such skin-and-bone honesty, that I found to be most personal. You are nourished by all the wisdom that she carries as you begin to learn so much about life and yourself in it, with such vision that gives light to the darkness. I found myself re-evaluating my actions and thoughts on life and on myself, which led to the most life changing consequences that all took place because of a decision that I had made since reading this remarkable book, hence I now certainly hope to be as proactive as I possibly can be. I was touched by how much of herself the author puts within her work, so as to give it more meaning and depth of feeling. Even the reader who feels most contented within their minds and who are sure of themselves and their futures, I do strongly urge that they read this book as it would certainly have an impact on any reader's life.Read more ›

Format: Hardcover
What a shame - I adored the first two books "The Invitation" and "The Dance" and therefore was eagerly awaiting this book. However, I felt disappointed to say the least, where the other books had encouraged readers to look within themselves this one felt heavily religious! Far too goddy a book for me and although I too love Rumi poetry I was surprised to see it so widely represented in some of the actual wording of this book.

Call to be at peace 7 Sep 2004
By Reader - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I have read two of Oriah's earlier books, the invitation and the dance, and the third in the trilogy i like even better than the other two. Oriah speaks to the reader with absolute honesty - on her relationships, her family, work, fears and hopes of everyday life - and how she deals with it. I particularly liked what she said about finding your 'word' or the one word around which inner dynamics evolve. And her clarity/differentiation between ego and essence is incredible, a noteworthy approach to practical spirituality needed for modern times.

This is definitely not for the average self help person or someone who just wants to 'make it work' with ten points on how-to- it is more for those of us who struggle with finding inner peace and authenticity in all that we do. Also the author has a very verbose style of writing that may not appeal to many - particularly those who are not very word-oriented and that might be something to watch for.

The Call: Discovering Why You Are Here 21 May 2004
By Gwendolyn - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Stunned by two negative reviews, I feel compelled to add my thoughts about this book--a book which I have heavily highligthted and found to be thoroughly honest. The author deals with the not-so-easy aspects of the spiritual journey with a direct 21st century awareness, using her own life as example. Anyone on a genuine spiritual journey of their own will understand what she means when she writes: "Create a gap in your story and sit within the gap, sit in the emptiness of not knowing who or what you are until an awareness of your essential nature fills you." This is one more book to add to my library of hundreds of volumes of spiritual literature, many of which I gathered while in seminary working towards a master's degree in Spritual Direction. Along with The Cloud of Unknowing, works by the Desert Fathers, Teresa of Avila, Julian of Norwich, Evelyn Underhill, Joseph Campbell and others I add Oriah Mountain Dreamer for speaking bravely to our time and, more specifically, to my life.

A Spiritual Workbook 6 Nov 2003
By Peter Marmorek - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Even more than its two excellent predecessors ("The Invitation" and "The Dance") the third book of Oriah's trilogy is a handbook on how to live. While influences of both the Sufis and Lao-Tze (Taoist) are present, the voice is clearly unique and powerfully original. Grounding her teachings in stories from her life, Oriah marshalls a persuasive argument that the core issue in our lives and our relation to Spirit is not that we need to do more, but that we need to accept who we are. The meditations offer clear and practical steps towards accomplishing that.
This is a practical book, that can be enjoyed whatever the reader's religious views are. Highly recommended!

Self discovery is the most challenging subject matter to discuss as an author and writer but also to read, and to those who take the first few steps to reading this will undoubtedly be greatly rewarded and will find much enjoyment as well from such breathtaking writing. This is a book that will find a special place within your heart.
