Dr. Jill Bolte Taylor, a Harvard-trained neuroanatomist, has revealed her secrets to short-circuit emotional reactivity, helping us find our way to peace in her groundbreaking documentary. In this film, Dr. Taylor explores the four characters that live inside our mind and how they impact our lives.
Back in 1996, Dr. Taylor experienced a severe hemorrhage in the left hemisphere of her brain that left her with a profound disability, unable to walk, talk, read, write, or recall any of her life. This profound and life-changing experience has enabled her to gain a deeper understanding of the brain and how it works.
Dr. Taylor’s New York Times bestseller, My Stroke of Insight, tells the story of her stroke and the eight-year recovery process. The book provides readers with the lessons she learned about the brain and her journey towards personal freedom and recovery.
In her latest book, Whole Brain Living: The Anatomy of Choice and The Four Characters That Drive Our Life, Dr. Taylor combines her experiences, knowledge, and research to provide us with practical insight into the four characters that drive our lives. The book is a true gift to anyone seeking personal freedom and growth in their lives.
