Jill Bolte Taylor, a trained brain scientist, experienced a massive stroke in the left hemisphere of her brain. Amazingly, she was able to observe her mind deteriorate. She alternated between feeling the euphoria of her intuitive and kinesthetic right brain, and the logical, sequential left brain which recognized she was having a stroke.
Her book describes her eight-year journey to recover her ability to walk, talk, read and write but that is not the main event. She is passionate about “stepping to the right” of our left brains, so we can uncover feelings of well-being, expansiveness, love and peace. She has come to believe that tapping into our right brain could lead to world peace and the ability to solve many of the world’s challenges.
