I popped this on while I was doing my work at home. I was listening however not intently to be honest (I intend to go back and listen properly again). As the time progressed and the stories unfolded, I found myself suddenly bursting into tears and sobbing very deeply. It felt to me that the story had pushed up something I had locked away, what exactly I am really not too sure, but I don't think that matters. I think the unwavering compassionate humanity in every word that Oriah speaks manages to coax out of us what we have shut away and given freedom of expression it is healed. That was a very unexpected outcome for me and I am thankful for this work and for my inner wisdom which knew to choose it.
Yes. I have listen to the book daily and learn something new each day. It say a lot about life and how we should go with the flow of life.
"Beautiful & Thought Provoking"
Hits my all-time favorites list. A perfectly well written book about what it means to exist as a very aware human. Colorful and descriptive articulation about being connected to and accepting of the internal and external limits while transcending beyond them. Wonderful, wonderful book.
