In My Grandfather's Blessings, Rachel Naomi Remen, a cancer physician and master storyteller, 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 Kabbalah, 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, heals our loneliness, and connects us more deeply to life. Life has given us many more blessings than we have allowed ourselves to receive. My Grandfather's Blessings is about how we can recognize and receive our blessings and bless the life in others. Serving others heals us. Through our service we will discover our own wholeness--and the way to restore hidden wholeness in the world.… (mere)

(9) I read this for a work thing and it is very similar to her book, 'Kitchen Table Wisdom' that I read last year around this time. I think perhaps I liked that original book better. This one is filled with shorter essays - some only a page or two - that all revolved around 'blessing' life. And by blessing, it means rather honoring as opposed to the Godly connotation. Dr. Remen is an MD who counsels patients in the end stages of cancer and is active in medical education - she has created a seminar taught nationwide in many medical schools focusing on the art as opposed to the science of being a physician. Having taken it and now facilitated it; I can say - it is lovely. Thus, my reading of her books. Remen's holistic and accepting view of life and humanity comes from her grandfather who was a rabbi of some sort. Though his philosophy seems more Buddhist than Jewish.

The essays all seem to run together after while and some seem a bit recycled or changed a bit from Kitchen Table Wisdom but overall I have to say her observations about living a meaningful life are so refreshing; so liberating. Inspirational really. Some things veered into a bit too twee for me - such as the sand tray work and the Jungian psychology and the feather in the elevator, etc. But I loved the stories of the many patients that she helped and how even when she seemed at a loss for words; just her bearing witness; her generous listening; her creation of a safe space was so therapeutic. I love the idea of "I, alone, am enough."

Anyway, much the same as 'Kitchen Table Wisdom' but I am glad I read it. It seems like a book I should purchase as I have to give back this borrowed copy. It seems like it could be helpful in the times of darkness that inevitably come for us all. ( )

bought this book when my mother got cancer; kept it and the other one, kitchen table wisdom in the bathroom (they are not THAT sacred - but...) It was good to just be able to rest my mind in her words and kindness. after she began to recover, my mother found them, and loved them too.
