    1. I'm just sinking into this book. I like Oriah Mountain Dreamer's voice. She reminds me of the things I've already learned in my creative life, but her book has arrived when I need a nudge.


    2. I salute Oriah Mountain Dreamer for getting to the root of the matter concerning self expression. Her book helped me greatly during the writing of my debut novel, CRESTMONT,published May 2010. She addresses many pitfalls and fears concerning any mode of creativityd provides much needed encouragement.


    3. I'm not sure I learned all that much about creativity, or how to be creative, but this was just a beautiful and pleasant book to read. It's like walking in to an auditorium thinking you'll be hearing a lecture and then relaxing to a beautiful music concert. I enjoyed it.



    4. The author has geared her writing towards the artist more specifically the writer but the principles would hold true to any of the art forms. The tone is extremely gentle. There's no cheer-leading here just advise, tools and ideas. Pg. 142: "Assume that in the after life you will be allowed to keep one memory from this life and to live forever within it. Which memory would you choose?" Pg. 159: "Remember, there is one word you are here to say with your whole being.When it finds you, give your li [...]


    5. Excellent book which blends the emotional saliency and drive to be a writer with the logical, imperative steps to actually get there and do the work. I have always struggled with setting personal writing goals and actually setting out to achieve them. If I had read this book a decade ago, it would have been 'pretty' but it wouldn't have changed much about my life. Much like anything, you get out what you put into it, and this book has absolutely altered my perceptions (positively and usefully) a [...]


    6. This is a book I read - start and stop - as my soul needs a lift or push to move in a new creative direction. The book can be read at one time or in spurts. It always has something new to give the reader.


    7. Am I the only person who will admit to finding this a bunch of insufferable, fluffy-fluffy, saccharine wanabe-woowoo? It's like being force-fed a mountain of cotton candy, the bright pink kind with the neon colors-not-found-in-nature rainbow sparkles that makes your teeth ache.


    8. Oriah Mountain Dreamer is another author that anyone interested in spirituality and creativity, and how they affect each other, should know. A good place to start is What We Ache For , her most recent title.


    9. This is pretty good. I actually bought it because it received a good review in Booklist, I think. It's a little new agey, but it is very good and very helpful. I used her thoughts in one of my fine art drawings.


    10. All Oriah's books reach in deep to the soul. She is a gifted, insightful and poetic writer. I've read many of her books.


    11. As always, a great read with a lot of great philosophy and writing advice.I didn't finish it though - there was nothing there I hadn't read before. I like her other books better.






    12. i think you need to be in a certain headspace to really digest What We Ache For, but i think the angle and the execution of the piece is breathtaking.
