Dr. Rachel Naomi Remen draws on ancient Jewish traditional wisdom to propose that the future is determined by the potential of the present. A doctor and storyteller from a long line of Jewish physicians, she explores healing as an exercise in resetting how we view our lives. She shares poignant stories of her upbringing in a Jewish household with a grandfather who taught her the values of generosity and caring.
