5.0 von 5 Sternen The Invitation
This book is absolutely transformational. I have read many books regarding the search for self, but never have had the pleasure of an author describing exactly how I was feeling. The book's inescapable flow and pros, rendered me unable to put it down until complete. This very well written book has been added to my special library, and will be read till the pages fall...

2.0 von 5 Sternen A puddle among oceans
The best thing about The Invitation is the first chapter: The invitation itself. Nice poetry.

This societal design is seriously flawed, and the true spiritual seeker will realize the answer lies in a return to respect and co-existence for all living things which...

This book is absolutely transformational. I have read many books regarding the search for self, but never have had the pleasure of an author describing exactly how I was feeling. The book's inescapable flow and pros, rendered me unable to put it down until complete. This very well written book has been added to my special library, and will be read till the pages fall out of it's hardback cover. Thank you, Oriah Mountian Dreamer, for the chance to be TRUELY transformed.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Guide Posts Along A Spiritual Path, 17. Juli 1999
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Invitation (Gebundene Ausgabe)
The poem changed my life! Its energy first came to me 2-1/2 years ago and I was mesmerized by its content and exasperated by its challenges.
After first discovering the poem, I must have read it 30 times, over and over and over again. But each time I read it, I could feel myself becoming angrier and angrier because I could not answer "yes" to a single challenge.
But I was hooked and the power of the poem began to work on me. From then on, when I encountered fear and pain along my path, and felt myself trying to "hide it, fade it or fix it", my mind and spirit drew upon its wisdom...and I grew. I gave myself permission to "risk looking like a fool for love...for the adventure of being alive". I now "look for beauty every day and try to source...life from its presence". I let myself "dance with wildness and let the ecstacy fill me" to the tips of my fingers and toes. But most of all, when my life experiences those momentary pauses, those deep breathes and sighs between social heartbeats, when I am alone with myself, I "truly like the company" I keep in those empty moments.
Each chapter is based upon Oriah's own experiences, but I could feel "me" as the book's subject and magically relate my experiences to the wisdom and challenges of the poem. The poem and book so deftly drew me into the process and importance of life.
It is a New Age Zen. It is simple, it is profound...it is undiluted wisdom.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Refreshing and honest., 22. Juli 2000
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Invitation (Gebundene Ausgabe)
The author begins with a poem, followed by a chapter dedicated to illuminating various ideas. She is honest and, unlike most "new age" books, she does not try to guide her readers into a state of continual bliss and peace. As other readers have mentioned, she gets annoyed (and then laughs at herself) when her teenage son leaves wet towels on the bathroom floor. I found her book a refreshing 'wake up call'. We are here to feel everything that a human being can feel -- and, in each moment, we find an incredible sense of aliveness and well-being. I also found the exercises at the end of each chapter very powerful.
Another book that speaks the truth and is an incredible gift if you are searching for life "in the moment" is Ariel & Shya Kane's Working on Yourself Doesn't Work. This graceful and deeply profound book contains an enlightened view of life. The Kanes reveal their revolutionary principles -- just three -- which are truly life-changing. The Kanes also share experiences from their life together that are moving and express eye-opening truths. Their insights are deeper and more profound than any I've ever experienced. If you want to see magic happen in your life and experience a deep sense of well-being -- read this wonderful book.
I'd like to thank the authors of both these books. It's wonderful to read words and feel the truth in them resonate. Thank you all for sharing your lives and insights with us.

(REAL NAME)   
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Invitation (Gebundene Ausgabe)
The best thing about The Invitation is the first chapter: The invitation itself. Nice poetry. However, if you are a serious spiritual seeker, you are aware of the plight civilation has created for us. This societal design is seriously flawed, and the true spiritual seeker will realize the answer lies in a return to respect and co-existence for all living things which requires a self-less attitude - a departure from the <I deserve a break today> mentality and a return to community. But the message in The Invitation would have you believe that finding and maintaining a good relationship with a mate is the answer to all life's problems. If you are just starting on your spiritual journey, The subject matter explored in The Invitation is a pacifier that will need to be discarded as you mature. The meditations at the end of each chapter is the most juvenile advice of all. The emphasis on maintaining romantic relationships in this book reveals that the author is still wading through puddles instead of pulling up anchor and heading into spiritual oceans. Oriah Mountain Dreamer has a long way to swim before she reaches vital spiritual waters. Take your money and buy a pizza - it might be as enlightening and be a lot easier to digest.

5.0 von 5 Sternen I knew I could not be the only one!, 5. August 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Invitation (Gebundene Ausgabe)
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.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A devastatingly simple and profoundly wise book of hope., 2. Mai 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Invitation (Gebundene Ausgabe)
This little treasure of a book takes ordinary life and elevates it to mystical status.It is one of the most moving books I have ever read and when I finished the last page I actually felt better about myself than I have in a long time. Do not misunderstand, this isn't some flaky new-age message. This book is firmly rooted in real-life but it manages to make the mundane trials of our lives seem more like a dance with the divine that connects all humans. I would hate to say anything that might make potential readers shy away from this book, and I really am not able to convey its beauty or the feeling of peace I felt while visiting the noble world illuminated by Ms. Mountain Dreamers words but please, as a favor to yourself and someone you love, find this book and read it. Your soul will thank you.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Inspiring in many ways, 3. August 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Invitation (Gebundene Ausgabe)
This book touches on so many fundamental issues that all of us face on the path of life. Issues of love, betrayl, trust, faith and our individual spirits. I enjoyed the openess of the writing. It was encouraging to know that there are others out there struggling with and working with some of the same things I am. Yes, it is always nice to know that you're not alone!
For anyone who is interested, if you enjoyed this book, you may consider _The Artist's Way_ written by Julia Cameron. I think _The Invitation_ (especially the guided meditations) is a strong complement to Cameron's text and vice versa. I would definately include _The Invitation_ on the suggested reading list at the end of _The Artist's Way_.
Peace and energy to everyone doing this work.

5.0 von 5 Sternen I accept, 22. Juli 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Invitation (Gebundene Ausgabe)
The Invitation is incredibly moving. It invites you to live life more fully, and feel all there is to feel-both the good and bad. I don't know what I was expecting to find when I picked up this book, but I got more than I could have hoped for. One of the most compelling aspects of this book is that Oriah Mountain Dreamer is not afraid to practice what she preaches. Actually she doesn't preach at all, which is extremely refreshing. Here is a woman who has gone through it all, and is not afraid to be REAL. She is not some New Age guru living in a bubble, this is a real woman who can move you to tears with simple profound wisdom, and still admit to you she gets irked with her teenage sons for leaving wet towels on the bathroom floor. What a wonderful book!

2.0 von 5 Sternen Nice Poem, Lean substance, 18. Juli 2000
Von 
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Invitation (Gebundene Ausgabe)
The Poem the Invitation is interesting and moving. However, the author's attempt to fill out the thinking and emotions behind it falls short. This is not really billed as a "new age" book but in all actuality it is. Dreamer repeats herself and the same ideas over and over again. I think that anybody reading this book will want to know how a person like this can survive in the world. I am convinced that this means something to the author. Unfortunately if you are drawn to the book through the peom i would suggest reading the first two chapters in the bookstore before you buy it. By this point you will know whether you can handle this type of writing. Mainstream people looking for good, solid, and workable solutions will be disappointed.

Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Invitation (Gebundene Ausgabe)
this book grabbed me at a time when I was feeling pretty down in the dumps. Wondering when the magic of life was going to strike again. While I was reading this I felt like it was being written just for me. I could relate to so much of it. It made me realize that even when we are feeling sad or lonely, to stay with it and go to the depth of it. That is when we slowly start coming out of it with more knowledge and awareness of who we are. It's about being authentic. Who you really are underneath all the pretenses. And staying with your pain or someone else's and knowing your going to survive it and be more of who you are because of it.
