"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.

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.

Motivating Your Students provides tools and techniques to bring teaching to life and to effectively motivate students to learn. Today's students raised on cable, video games, the Internet, and MTV demand more from their teachers than ever before. In order to reach these students and encourage them to want to learn, today's teachers must actively engage them in the learning process. This text focuses on helping teachers do just that, regardless of level of experience or subject matter. Motivating Your Students provides real-life, practical suggestions, with a focus on lesson planning and teaching strategies. It focuses on effective communication strategies and presentation skills for classroom use to inspire students to enjoy learning. This book will help teachers to do the following: understand and meet students' motivational needs; present information and structure education activities to match students' diverse personalities and learning styles; be more persuasive and influential; get and keep students' attention so that they participate more fully; use storytelling as a powerful tool to make abstract concepts more concrete; and make each lesson more memorable.
