It is a profound invitation to a life that is more fulfilling and passionate, with greater integrity. This book is a word-of-mouth sensation, whose truths have resonated with people all over the world, and is now reissued with a beautiful new cover design. When workshop leader and author Oriah Mountain Dreamer wrote her heartfelt 'Invitation', she did not expect the small prose poem to reach the level of popularity that it has. It has spread far and wide by word of mouth and the internet and has been read aloud at weddings, funerals and spiritual gatherings. In this inspirational book, the author explains and expands upon the ideas contained in her poem, creating a guidebook for living a life full of integrity, commitment and passion and inviting readers on a journey to find and accept their true selves. In this accessible book, Oriah Mountain Dreamer provides a line-by-line exploration of the poem, showing us how we can meet the challenge that it gives us.Read Less
the Invitation is first, a poem that has made the rounds of the internet to wide acclaim and interest. The book itself is Oriah Mountain Dreamer's first in a trilogy of books, which explains that poem. I have read it several times, and yes, I have recommended it to friends.
It is one of those pieces that speaks to me differently each time I read it, the way I find something different each time I read The Alchemist.
The book gets to the heart of matters in one's life, as the author has lived hers. It is reality, as in, the author admits her struggles which typically are universal. It invites me to look more closely at my own authentic self and asks me: Are you living your life as your true self.
a good work for those seeking inspiration to find their own way, to look beyond the unconsciousness of our culture's daily busy-ness.

This book really touches the nerve of spirit. I loved the way she gets right down to the exact nature of our human nature and makes the really important stuff so simple. Reading her book, I was given insight into my own fragile state of being. The mistakes that I have made in my life are now of some value, in the context of her story. I have given this book to many, and many have said it is their favorite book.
