Book – My Stroke of Insight – Jill Bolte Taylor

You have probably heard about Jill Bolte Taylor who was a neuroscientist working at Harvard’s brain research center. Dr. Taylor experienced Nirvana, by having a stroke. This stroke happened Dec 10th 1996, when she was 37. You will find the video of Dr. Taylor explaining the entire experience on stage at Ted Talks on this website as a video post in the Living in Courage archives. Imagine seeing that the atoms and molecules making up your body are blending with the space around you. Everything made up of the same energy. Dr.Taylor did just that. My Stroke of Insight is Jill Bolte Taylor’s new book about this experience, published by Viking. Jill went through 8 years of rehab and recovery. This experience has changed Jill’s life dramatically. Dr. Taylor can step into the consciousness of her right hemisphere at her own command, and be one with all. Imagine the bliss and joy of this. Dr. Taylor believes that in our choice to run the deep inner peace circuitry of our right hemisphere, the more peace we will project into the world. I highly recommend this book. Your perception of the brain and how it works will expand, opening your mind to new possibilities.
