Rachel Remen: The Soul of Medicine

“The heart has had a very central role in medicine. Aristotle describes the temples of Asclepius, which was the first medical center. He described this as a group of buildings with courtyards and, in one of the courtyards of the temples of Asclepius there was a statue of Venus, the goddess of love. What that’s about is that the perspective of the heart is central to the practice of medicine.” In this riveting interview, acclaimed author Dr. Rachel Naomi Remen delves into what it means to be human, shares the story of her connection to Quan Yin, explores the soul of medicine, the dance between mastery, mystery, and more.
