An invitation 

I’ve recently become familiar with ‘The Invitation’ by Oriah, where she questions the framework of being complacent about truly connecting and being intimate with others. We do this in an effort to shield ourselves but simultaneously shield full joy and acceptance.   She shares the fierce joy and depth of feeling to be gained by owning our truest values and emotions. I realize now why it was such a widely regarded work and invite you to add it to your summer reading!
