Your Satisfaction is Guaranteed:
In My Grandfather's Blessings, Rachel Naomi Remen, a cancer physician and master stroyteller, uses her luminous stories to remind us of the power of our kindness and the joy of being alive.
Dr. Remen's grandfather, an orthodox rabbi and scholar of the Kaballah, saw life as a web of connection and knew that everyone belonged to him, and that he belonged to everyone. He taught her that blessing one another is what fills our emptiness and heals the loneliness in us all
Life has given us many more blessings than we have allowed ourselves to receive. My Grandfather's Blessings is about how we can receive our blessings and share life's blessings with others. Through our blessings we will discover our own wholeness and the way to restore the hidden wholeness in the world.
Remen uses the heart-rending stories of her patients to teach readers how to follow in her example, that is, combining a life of service with a life of receiving and giving blessings (a combination that avoids common problems such as burnout, self-sacrifice, and navel gazing). Remen also includes personal stories of her grandfather, who showered the world with his mystical beliefs and wizened blessings. While this story-by-story structure is similar to the bestselling Kitchen Table Wisdom, it is still a tearful and satisfying formula. --Gail Hudson
