Kitchen Table Wisdom
Rachel Naomi Remen
'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.
Rachel Naomi Remen is nature’s gift to us, a genius of that elusive and crucial capacity, the human heart. She has much to teach us about healing, loving, and living.

This is a beautiful book about life, the only true teacher.

Dr Rachel Naomi Remen is a pioneer in the medicine of the future. With the elegance of simplicity, she shows how physicians can become healers by no longer remaining mere technicians of the human body, but by becoming alchemists of the soul. I recommend this book highly to everyone.
