Oriah is first and foremost a story-teller, a lover of words and symbols and the stories that lift our spirits, open our hearts and offer us ways to see patterns and create meaning in our lives. The focus of her life and work has been an on-going inquiry into the Sacred Mystery.

Oriah is the author of 7 books including the poem & book, "The Invitation. Even as I write this I feel how hard it is (even when the choice is taken from us by changing abilities) to surrender to slowing down, to take a deep breath, to sort out what really "must" be done immediately and what could be set aside, or done in a way that lets us taste the movement and make room for the.

This text provides a sequel to The Invitation  . Each chapter begins with a line from Oriah Mountain Dreamer's poem The Dance, and explores our ability to open up to the adventure of living - facing love, sorrow and anger and learning all they have to teach us. Get A Copy.

Welcome to The Dance, the wise and practical book that expands on Oriah Mountain Dreamer′s new moving prose poem. In this compelling book the acclaimed author of The Invitation challenges readers to live with passion, energy, and honesty. The key, says Oriah, is to savour the everyday world of family, friends, love, and work with clear minds and open hearts. When we are physically and emotionally stressed and our spirits are depleted, we must realise that happiness has not vanished but is buried beneath the clutter of our harried lives.

By Oriah Mountain Dreamer more Oriah Mountain Dreamer. 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 can be with joy mine or your own if you can dance with wildness and let the ecstasy fill you to the tips of your fingers and toes without cautioning us to be careful to be realistic to remember the limitations of being human. It doesn't interest me if the story you are telling me is true.

This author reaches down inside and touches the deepest part of us----just wonderful as all her books are. She does not spare herself in examples of failure to always live to one's true integrity.

It is difficult to imagine, but The Dance is even better than The Invitation. With her unique blend of beautiful language and down-to-earth wisdom, Oriah Mountain Dreamer takes us to the next logical, post-invitation step: action. "Don't just say 'yes' to my invitation," Oriah tells us, ". . . take my hand and dance with me." The Dance is about active spirituality, about putting our dance steps where our mouths are. And as with The Invitation, Oriah Mountain Dreamer leads us along this path by taking her turn at vulnerability first. She leads by example, and she is a beautiful, perfectly imperfect example of what humanity can be. The Dance offers fresh perspectives ("I believe that the big picture is somehow shaped by how we live the details, the little pictures that run through our lives."), and wise counsel ("If you need to be afraid, fear will come wherever you are, but you don't have to go out looking for it."), and it confronts the dangers of oversimplified, sugar-coated self-help recipes. ("Guaranteed outcomes and delineated steps may be warranted and useful for baking cookies and assembling bookshelves, but I find them less useful and potentially misleading when we are talking about finding meaning and creating happiness in our own lives and in the world.") As a psychotherapist, as an author, and as a human being, I have found a kindred, anti-namby-pamby spirit in Oriah Mountain Dreamer. Reading The Invitation is not a prerequisite for reading The Dance, but I can't think of a better way to spend your reading time than to read these two babies back to back. I said that it is difficult to imagine that The Dance is better than The Invitation, but you don't have to rely on imagination. Reading is believing.

Eh, got this on a recommendation, it's a good book, but it isn't me.

I enjoy the honesty that Oriah writes from. I read the "Invitation" many years ago, so I was happy to read another of Oriah's wonderful books. This book has wonderful meditations at the end of each chapter that I find valuable.

I just love everything from Oriah, The Dance is no exception.
  • Coiriel
I love Oriah's books. She writes from the heart, and it shows.
  • Via
I love this book. I bought the hardback just for the cover as this is one of my favorite quotes. Amazing read!
I read the invitation over and over. At first I was not ready for this book. It wasn't untill I read a half of it that I fell deeply into seeing Oriah's perspective and it healed me.
Now I have read it twice, and it still is moving, and highly recommended from my point of view.
