Not only a remarkable story, Jill Bolte Taylor’s story beautifully captures the dichotomy we know all too well: the rational self versus the spiritual part of a whole. As a neuroscientist, Jill uses her experience of having a stroke to illustrate the powerful differences between our left and right hemispheres. Our left controls our understanding of time, language, planning, and ourselves. Our right includes our senses, our feelings, and our spirituality.
P.S. She also has a wonderful interview with Oprah on Super Soul Sunday that further explores the significance of her experience, especially her recovery.
