Jill Bolte Taylor video

A Neuroscientist Has a “Stroke of Insight”

This amazing video tells the story of neuroscientist Jill Bolte Taylor’s stroke, which totally shut down her left hemisphere. She talks about the gifts of the right brain and encourages us all to step away from our left hemisphere from time to time so we can have more inner peace.

Warning: This video is about 18 minutes long. If you don’t have time to watch the whole thing now, skip to minute 18 where you can watch a brief summary of her main ideas. Then, when you have time later, you can watch the rest of it.

–We strongly encourage you to watch the whole thing, because it’s such an inspiring video! It’s actually the second most watched TED talk of all time.
