Kitchen Table Wisdom

By Rachel Naomi Remen MD

First published in 1996, and in a new edition in 2021, this book comes highly recommended by well-known figures in the world of cancer, Jon Kabat-Zinn and Deepak Chopra among others. 

Kitchen Table Wisdom is a deeply moving and down to earth collection of true stories that show us life in all its power and mystery. As a physician, a professor of medicine, a therapist and a long-term survivor of chronic illness, Dr Rachel Naomi Remen has a unique perspective on healing and invites us to listen from the soul. 

As she said herself: “Everybody has a story. When I was a child, people sat around kitchen tables and told their stories. We don’t do that so much any more. Sitting around the table telling stories is not just a way of passing time. It is the way the wisdom gets passed along. The stuff that helps us to live a life worth remembering.”
