Brain scientist, Dr. Jill Bolte Taylor, author of My Stroke of Insight speaks of her brain trauma and unique journey to wellness in a jaw dropping, intellectually stimulating and awe-inspiring fashion. Along with valuable stroke awareness, Dr. Jill’s audiences are inspired by her profound insights to change the way we think and feel, thus change our lives for the better.
In Oprah’s final show, she said: “Dr. Taylor sent me a sign that I have hanging in my makeup room. It says, ‘Please take responsibility for the energy you bring into this space.’ Thank you, Dr. Taylor, for that simple but powerful lesson. All life is energy and we are transmitting it at every moment. We are all little beaming signals like radio frequencies, and the world is responding in kind.”
Dr. Jill was chosen as one of TIME Magazine’s 100 Most Influential People in the World, has appeared on Oprah, and she has one of the most viewed TED Talks to date. Sony Pictures and Imagine Entertainment are working on a feature film adaptation of My Stroke of Insight with Director Ron Howard.
