Yes, you can! There are some nice extensions that allow for this. I used the "Plugin Include Component" plugin, which is available on extensions.joomla.org. With this plugin, you simply create an article that contains a special tag, indicating the component to include.
Just like this:
Install the plugin and put the following code in whatever article you need it in (substitute 'componentName' and 'viewname' for your component's and view's name...).
