Dr. Jill Bolte Taylor is a Harvard-trained neuroanatomist and author of the NY Times Bestseller, “My Stroke of Insight: A Brain Scientist’s Personal Journey”. On Dec 10, 1996, Dr. Taylor experienced a brain hemorrhage which impaired the left hemisphere of her brain. On the morning of the hemorrhage, she could not walk, talk, read, write, or recall anything. Her recovery took eight years, and she was left with a deeper understanding about how the different aspects of her brain work to make her who she is, and how she can use that understanding to create the life that serves her best. In this episode we discuss:
- The major differences between the left and right hemispheres of the brain and how they process information.
- Practical guidance on how to connect with our right hemisphere throughout the day to tap into its wisdom to deepen our experiences.
-The 90 second rule, and how it can help you become a master of your emotions.
- How to gain back power over your emotions.
- What scientific research has shown happens in the brain during spiritual or mystical experiences.
