Have you read the book “My Stroke of Insight” by Jill Bolte Taylor, Ph.D.? It is truly amazing, insightful and inspirational. If you’re not familiar with the premise, here’s a snippet from the back cover: “On December 10, 1996, Jill Bolte Taylor, a thirty-seven-year-old Harvard-trained brain scientist, experiences a massive stroke in the left hemisphere of her brain, As she observed her mind deteriorate to the point that she could not walk, talk, read, write or recall any of her life – all within four hours – Taylor alternated between the euphoria of the intuitive and kinesthetic right brain, in which she felt a sense of complete well-being and peace, and the logical, sequential left brain, which recognized that she was havinga stroke and enabled her to seek help before she was completely lost.”
It is truly an amazing story (and I’m only half way through the book!). As someone who studied science, I am enthralled with her genuine fascination with what was happening to her. Because of her approach and detailed account of her experience, her story is so insightful. She is able to give an inspiring story of recovery as well as testimonial that inner peace is accessible to all of us. I encourage you to check it out!
