Format: Paperback
Ms. Oriah Mountain Dreamer has created a pathway beyond the comfortable and the mundane into that which challenges and repels you. By addressing the edges of your personality and sensitivities, you can build on and extend your awareness and your reality in honest ways that better fit your inner self. The book is propelled from the author's emotionally intense vision of her life as expressed in this question: "Did I love well?"
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.

It is very rare for a book to touch the most profound feelings and emotions within us, but this one does it again and again. It has the intensity of poetry in its heartfelt prose. If I’m honest, I often pick up ‘self-development/spirituality’ books because I want to read about how to improve my life without actually having to *do* any more than just read. On this score The Invitation challenges me right from the start. It is compelling reading and it leads me to broader, deeper, more intense thoughtfulness about what living is every time I open the cover.
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.

I read this book during a difficult time in my life, it helped me to focus on me and what is really important. The inspiring stories she tells of her life enable you to translate what she is trying to say into your own meaning, and the best thing about this book is everybody who reads it will take something away from it that they will always remember.

The Invitation is exactly that, it invites you to apply these questions to you and your life. It manages to be healing, challenging and thought provoking and a constant source of comfort ~ knowing you're not the only one to have felt this way. It is easily readable, not full of jargon or new age phrases and makes a great gift, especially to a friend in need. The last line haunts ~ "I want to know if you can be alone with yourself and if you truly like the company you keep in the empty moments."

To begin I must thank this wonderful woman for her courage to share this wonderful book with the world. I would then like to thank her for letting me know that I am not strange or weird and nor are my thoughts on living my life as I have thought for so long. She has given me the okay to be who I am, because I strived for so long to let others know who I was, and now I see myself in the pages of her book. I believed all that she writes and hid this because others could not see what I was trying to say. Now I have a book, a guide to pass on to those who look puzzled at me and wonder 'who are you'. I am the one who lives through my heart, soul, and lives life with love. Thank you for setting me free and to all of those who have crossed my path, wondered who I was, read this book and find the answers to your questions.
