‘The call’ is the moving and stunning conclusion to an epic trilogy that began with ‘the invitation’ and continued with ‘the dance’. This is a book that opens a window into your heart and which delves down into the very depths of ones soul, exploring what we know of ourselves through the eyes of other people thus handing us a mirror to look into. It helps the reader to explore who they are as an individual by understanding ultimately what it means to be human, by what makes us unique, distinctiv ...more

I loved this book. Lots of little truths jumped out at me and the synchronicities I saw between Oriah's life and my own were uncanny.
Inspirational, quality self-introspection with suggested meditations. Love everything by this author.
I highly recommend this small but powerful book. Oriah models openness and dares to go beyond what we all think are our limitations. She takes us on her personal journey and shows us that commitment to self is critical to leading a healthy and happy life. One line in particular jumped off the page. It went something like this. Are you willing to break a promise to someone else in order to be true to yourself? Oriah is very real and honest with her humanity and teaches us how important it is to b ...more

Another one that I read over and over.
I am not sure what kept me to the end of the book. I have not walked away with any piece of vital information, but rather, a giant shrug with my hands up looking at the expansive sky. She is an interesting person to listen to, but not edifying other than by trying very hard, herself, to do life differently and see things differently with God leading the way, so inspiring at least.

I was not that impressed with this book. The first two chapters seemed to be about the author going on a retreat and putting herself at the brink of starvation and exhaustion. I read this during an overseas trip, and this really wasn’t what I wanted to read about it. I did not finish it.
This was a thought provoking book. I liked some of the questions she ponders. I don't agree with all her mythology/theology, but she's still a fairly grounded, realistic person.

I do wish I'd read the trilogy in order tho. I think this is the third but I read it first. Oh well...
I should remember that I'm not really fond of new age books. The chapter on Your Word was the only one that I actually read...
Many interesting points to ponder, especially what is my word- listen.
Oriah's stuff is just amazing. I liked this one a great deal!
