"A Stroke Of Insight", by Dr. Jill Bolte Taylor...

I received this link from a friend of mine...unfortunately, I can't post the video directly to CHEESE, but it is definitely worth the click to the site! The link is a short (about 20 minutes) video of a lecture by Dr. Jill Bolte Taylor, neuroscientist...she talks about the brain, her own stroke, and "nirvana"...it brought me to tears.

Enjoy...

I've been recommending "My Stroke of Insight" to everyone I know. It's the best book I've read all year! You can get Jill's book from Amazon for a good discount.
Here's the Link:

I read "My Stroke of Insight" in one sitting - I couldn't put it down. I laughed. I cried. It was a fantastic book (I heard it's a NYTimes Bestseller and I can see why!), but I also think it will be the start of a new, transformative Movement! No one wants to have a stroke as Jill Bolte Taylor did, but her experience can teach us all how to live better lives. Her TED.com speech was one of the most incredibly moving, stimulating, wonderful videos I've ever seen. Her Oprah Soul Series interviews were fascinating. They should make a movie of her life so everyone sees it. This is the Real Deal and gives me hope for humanity.
