In The Invitation, Oriah expands on the poem that started it all, exhorting us to fully examine our lives, learn to live with intimacy and joy, and, above all, be true to ourselves. The Dance is the celebrated follow-up that reveals how to let go and enjoy the dance of life. To dance, alone or with others, is to slow down and realize that who we are is enough. Finally, in The Call, Oriah shows that each of us has our own call, our own specific place in the universe, and a contribution that only we can make.

Oriah Mountain Dreamer is officially on ts on my list of hero authors! She developed a series of books for those who are learning about the self and intend to improve it. The silent, timid, "normal", audaceous, clueless and other personalities shall benefit from reading Oriah. 5 Stars !!!!!

I initially got the impression that its a bit a mix of "Rene" (Chateaubriand) and the "Reveries" (Rousseau), given all of the 'I's and 'me's, but then it descends into spiritual/self-help type blather. A soft voiced tone is maintained throughout.

I agree with: from desire to commitment, but I never got the impression that led to sorrow and betrayal. In fact, I didn't experience sorrow and betrayal from this story. This book is as lost as its writer and now its many readers. Thanks Oriah.
