Kitchen Table Wisdom: Stories That Heal, 10th Anniversary Edition (Anniversary)
I recommend this book highly to everyone. --Deepak Chopra, M.D. This special updated version of the New York Times-bestseller, Kitchen Table Wisdom, addresses the same spiritual issues that made the original a bestseller: suffering, meaning, love, faith, and miracles. Despite the awesome powers of technology, many of us still do not live very well, says Dr. Rachel Remen. We may need to listen to one another's stories again. Dr. Remen, whose unique perspective on healing comes from her background as a physician, a professor of medicine, a therapist, and a long-term survivor of chronic illness, invites us to listen from the soul. This remarkable collection of true stories draws on the concept of kitchen table wisdom-- the human tradition of shared experience that shows us life in all its power and mystery and reminds us that the things we cannot measure may be the things that ultimately sustain and enrich our lives.
