Description
In December 1996, Jill Bolte Taylor, a 37-year-old Harvard-trained neuroanatomist, experienced 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 rationality of the logical, sequential left brain, which recognized that she was having a stroke and enabled her to seek help. It would take her eight years to fully recover, but for Taylor, the stroke was a blessing and a revelation, as it taught her that by "stepping to the right" of our left brains, we can all uncover feelings of well-being that are often sidelined by "brain chatter."
