Product Description

Review

'You have a true higher self, and this book tells you how to come from there all the time and be authentic and make a lasting difference.'
Mark Victor Hansen, co-author of Chicken Soup for the Soul

'To read The Dance is to invite all the far-flung parts of yourself … back onto the dance floor for a slow and sweet waltz. At the end of the dance, you have whirled yourself back into one whole person.'
Elizabeth Lesser, author of The Seeker's Guide

From the Back Cover

Oriah Mountain Dreamer, visionary author of 'The Invitation,' the sensational word-of-mouth bestseller, has written an inspiring new book. 'The Dance' picks up where 'The Invitation' left off, taking the ideas deeper. Each chapter begins with a line of poetry and explores our ability to open up to the adventure of living, facing love, sorrow and anger and learning all they have to teach us. Oriah Mountain Dreamer answers each of her insightful questions by taking readers with her on deeply personal, yet universal and inspiring, journey of the heart.

'Sit beside me in long moments of shared solitude, knowing both our absolute aloneness and our undeniable belonging. Dance with me in the silence and in the sound of small daily words, holding neither against me at the end of the day.'

'How to live bravely and find joy, balance and harmony.'

'And when the sounds of all the declarations of our sincerest intentions has died away on the wind, dance with me in the infinite pause before the next great inhale of the breath that is breathing us all into being, not filling the emptiness from the outside or from within.’

Format: Hardcover
Like her previous book, The Invitation,in The Dance, Oriah breaks down her poem into chapter headings and relates to real life situations. As we dance with her, we peel back another layer of our own prejudice towards ourself and others. As we learn the steps to this new dance, we learn not to judge not to condemn our selves but to love and cherish who we are. If you can accept a loved one warts and all, then why not yourself ? Do we not deserve love and understanding? So why are we so often the person we least want to be? With great insight Oriah reveals how she learnt to love her own spirit and trust her inner god. To aid the reader she closes every dance step with a meditation to cherish and accept ourselves for who we are. It is a book that I will open everytime I need to remember how to love myself.

I bought this book after hearing an excerpt by accident on the radio. It changed my life. I left a job I hated, got a new one and am happier than I have been in 30 years. The book is non-judgmental, funny, honest and empowering. Especially useful for people brought up and repressed in the Christian Church...read it...

Following on from the glorious Invitation, this book contains more of Oriah Mountain Dreamer's very special honesty and insight. Hers is not the language of persuasive argument or even of plausible explanation, rather she explores the way of acceptance - or as she puts it 'the ability to be with what is no matter how hard'. She explores the notion of not knowing, being in a void, not doing anything, just being with ourselves. She also writes about the power of being in silence with others - shared solitude as the most wonderful way to merge with another and with the world. Her meditative style is gentle but at the same time hard-hitting in the way that she strikes right at the heart of the issues she covers.
For me, the poem on which this text is based did not have the same impact as The Invitation, hence the 4-star rating, but nevertheless this is a book full of wisdom, beauty and truth.

I bought this book after reading 'The Invitation' by the same author. Absolutely beautiful words as the first book, and insightful advice about life and love and looking into yourself. More helpful than the usual 'self help' books, as it is realistic and doesnt say 'everything will be fine' as we all know in life, not everything goes to plan and there will be hiccups.
definitely worth the read. excellent.

It's grand, though I expected a bit more 'real' poetry, and maybe a bit more wisdom. That may just be me - others have found it truly inspirational, so I'll probably return to it and give it a fairer try-out. On second thoughts, maybe just take from this review that this book may not change your life instantly, but also may just contain a spark or two to make you think and feel better.
