Show Summary:

For today’s conversation, I am joined by the amazing and brilliant Dr. Jill Bolte Taylor! 

Dr. Jill is a Harvard-trained and published neuroscientist. In 1996, she experienced a severe hemorrhage in the left hemisphere of her brain, causing her to lose the ability to walk, talk, read, write, or recall any of her life. Her memoir, My Stroke of Insight, documenting her experience with stroke and eight-year recovery, spent 63 weeks on the New York Times nonfiction bestseller list.

Dr. Jill is a dynamic teacher and speaker who loves educating people about the beauty of the human brain. She focuses on how we can activate the power of our neuroplasticity to not only recover from neurological trauma but also to live a more flexible, resilient, and satisfying life.

In 2008, her TED Talk went viral. That same year, she was chosen as one of Time magazine’s “100 Most Influential People in the World” and was the premiere guest on Oprah Winfrey’s “Soul Series” webcast. Her new book, Whole Brain Living – the Anatomy of Choice and the Four Characters That Drive Our Life, is a #1 release on Amazon in categories ranging from Neuroscience to Nervous System Diseases and Stroke.

Dr. Jill also happens to be my personal Diva on Whole Brain Living! And I’m super excited to bring you our conversation today.

In this episode, we’ll explore:

  • What happened when her TED Talk was the first one to ever go viral 
  • The four characters that correspond to specific parts of your brain
  • How understanding and utilizing all four of these characters can lead to a balanced, conscious, and harmonious life
  • Why embracing Whole Brain Living could bring about a significant positive shift in human consciousness and societal norms
