9780062515841: The Invitation

‘The Invitation’ is a poem that has been distributed worldwide. It has created a sensation and sparked this book that works with the poems elements and ideas in a step by step guidebook.

When workshop leader and author Oriah Mountain Dreamer wrote her heartfelt "Invitation" a couple of years ago she did not expect that small prose poem to reach the level of popularity that it has. It has spread far and wide by word of mouth, the internet and has been read alound at weddings, funerals and spiritual gatherings by people including Robert Bly and Jack Cornfield.
The poem is a challenge to us and in this accessible and inspiring book Oriah Mountain Dreamer tells us how to meet that challenge.

Book Description HarperCollins Publishers Inc, United States, 1999. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 190 x 140 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. Visionary author Oriah Mountain Dreamer brings to life the wisdom of her beloved invitation, which has touched hearts everywhere with its fresh and spirited call to live life more deeply, honestly, and well. Like the inspirations for Robert Fulghum?s All I Really Need to Know I learned in Kindergarten, Cherie Carter-Scott?s If Life Is a Game, These are the Rules, and Margaret Fishback Power?s Footprints, the poem that sparked The Invitation has been embraced around the world, passed along by thousands who have discovered and treasured its message. In this lovely gift book the author speaks from the heart, reflecting on everything from desire to betrayal and offering practical - and often surprising - suggestions for how to live the ecstasy of everyday life, learn to recognise true beauty in ourselves and the world around us, and how to find the sustenance that our spirit longs for. The poem Invitation has been recited and quoted at countless spiritual conferences, and on network radio by Robert Bly, Jack Kornfield, Angeles Arrien, and many other spiritual leaders. From the Invitation: ? 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. It doesn?t interest me how old you are. I want to know if you will risk looking like a fool for love, for your dream, for the adventure of being alive .?. Bookseller Inventory # AAS9780062515841
