Although her personal examples are simply there to help your own journey, their poignancy touched me deeply. If you are like me, you will admire the honesty and openness of her sharing. Ms. Dreamer has had two failed marriage and many failed relationships. She has had friends who experienced horrible personal setbacks. You will be seared by the pain, the truth, and the beauty in these experiences. And you will be the better for the vicarious experience.
Above all, this book is a call to have courage, courage to go beyond the comfortable into the important. Because of the examples chosen and her personal perspective, this book will probably speak more eloquently to many women than to many men.
The book is broken down into the statement of her invitation to follow her spiritual path by dealing with longing, fear, sorrow, joy, betrayal, beauty, failure, commitment, and fire to develop the deep sustenance to allows you to go to your true inner home. Each section contains personal experiences of her point, and ends with valuable meditation exercises to help you find your own "truth" in these areas.
Although the book sounds like another New Age tract, it is actually anti-New Age in many ways . . . especially in favoring emotional and physical reality over spiritual vagueness.Read more ›
Oriah Mountain Dreamer touches often on thoughts and feelings which ring utterly true to my life and yet I’ve never allowed myself to admit them. It’s both a relief and an inspiration to read sentences such as: ‘It is not the being, not even the doing that exhausts. It is the trying’.
The Invitation is a call to integrity… integrating all of ourselves into our lives. No denial of the bits we think we don’t like, but an acceptance, even a celebration of all and every part of ourselves, our feelings and our thoughts. It certainly isn’t the path of least resistance in life, but this book paints it with glorious honesty, clarity and beauty. I know I will return to this text again and again and that my life will be the richer for it.
