"Dr. Rachel Naomi Remen is a pioneer in the medicine of the future. With the elegance of simplicitym, she shows how physicians can become healers by no longer remaining mere technicians of the human body, but by becoming alchemists of the soul." --Deepak Chopra, M.D. "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." --Daniel Goleman, Ph.D., author of Emotional Intelligence "A book of stunning radiance, authenticity, and power. I laughed and cried my way through it, from beginning to end... Come share in this extraordinary outpouring of human wisdom." --Jon Kabat-Zinn, Ph.D., author of Wherever You Go, There You Are "Read these gorgeous, from-the-soul stories at the risk of burying cynicism, finding hope, learning a good deal more about life and living-- and having a damned good time." --Norman Learshow more
