A Stroke of Insight

Twenty minutes may be asking a lot, but this talk by brain researcher Jill Bolte Taylor offers astounding spiritual insights about who we are.

Click here for a previous post on Dr. Taylor, with more information about her journey.

Although I did not take the time to listen to the bit you posted, I recently saw an interview with this woman on CBC's The National (Canadian Broadcasting Corp).

Since that time I have been actively looking for her book whenever I go to the city but have yet to find (perhaps I should look on line!). The story in and of itself is incredible and I think it swings a door wide open on rehabing from brain trauma/damage.

I have 3 Fetal Alcohol (FASD) students in my class who suffer brain damage due to consumption of alcohol in utero. Listening to Jill made me wonder if they share in any of the cognitive changes she experienced - which could explain the very different eyes through which I believe we see the world!

Thanks for posting. Incredible story!

Angela, thank you for your comment. Her book is coming out in paperback this week, so you might have better luck finding it now. It's available through Amazon.com as well.

Interesting thought about the students with FASD and how they might view the world.

Thank you for stopping by!
