more about stroke of insight

Jill Bolte Taylor, Ph.D, author and neuroanatomist, says several things in My Stroke of Insight that resonate for me in recalling my recovery from ovarian cancer and my efforts to keep at bay any recurrence of tumor activity.

An excerpt: “Prior to this experience with stroke, the cells in my left hemisphere had been capable of dominating the cells in my right hemisphere. The judging and analytical character in my left mind dominated my personality. When I experienced the hemorrhage and lost my left hemisphere language center cells that defined my self, those cells could no longer inhibit the cells in my right mind…

…My stroke of insight is that at the core of my right hemisphere consciousness is a character that is directly connected to my feeling of deep inner peace. It is completely committed to the expression of peace, love, joy and compassion in the world.”

Take care,

Carolyn
