Product description

From Amazon

One night, after an unsatisfying evening at a party, author Oriah Mountain Dreamer wrote the start of The Invitation. By the light of her streetlight, she began, "It doesn't interest me what you do for a living. I want to know what you ache for, and if you dare to dream of meeting your heart's longing.... I want to know if you have touched the center of your own sorrow, if you have been opened by life's betrayals or have become shriveled and closed from fear of further pain...."

Her profound invitation (longer than is written here) became the framework for this wise and inspiring book. Chapter by chapter, the author uses passages from her "Invitation" to welcome readers into a life that is more soul fulfilling and passionate, and has far greater truth and integrity. In a sense, she invites readers to get a life instead of buying into a lifestyle. Each chapter ends with a guided meditation specific to the theme of the chapter, such as "The Joy" and "The Failure."

Despite her suspiciously New Age-sounding name, Oriah Mountain Dreamer is a highly grounded, practical, and honest writer. This fresh and beautifully packaged book is destined for great acclaim in the realm of spiritual inspiration. --Gail Hudson


“Her words pierced my shell and pricked at my soul. An invitation to the ultimate dance.” (Wayne W. Dyer, author of Wisdom of the Ages)

“Stunning in its simplicity and power, soul food for the mind and heart, a prose poem for a new world.” (Michael Toms, cofounder of New Dimensions Radio and coauthor of True Work)

“The Invitation is a treasure. If you want to live more deeply, honestly, and passionately, you must read this book.” (Richard Carlson, author of Don't Sweat the Small Stuff)
