My Stroke of Insight and What it Means for YOU

A dear friend of mine passed along this video to me the other day. I have to say after watching it that it absolutely blew me away. I have been a friend of the Ted.com videos for a while. They are amazing speeches by the world’s greatest thinkers and doers.

This particular video is called “My Stroke of Insight”. It is about neuroanatomist Jill Bolte Taylor’s experience few brain scientists would wish for: One morning, she realized she was having a massive stroke. As it happened — as she felt her brain functions slip away one by one, speech, movement, understanding — she studied and remembered every moment. This is a powerful story of recovery and awareness — of how our brains define us and connect us to the world and to one another. I take these words right from her bio on the Ted site because they are so powerful. The video is even more iinspiring.

I have been fascinated by the study of consciousness and how the brain works for years. While I am no scientist, the possibilities for connection and being fully present and creative in one’s life do fall within my passion and profession as a coach. Taylor’s experience drives home an important message at the end for us all.

Sit back and treat yourself for 19 minutes. You’ll be glad you did.
