Jill Bolte Taylor
My Stroke of Insight

This account from lalaland is beautifully bridging the gap between science and spirituality to open up our perception of the world.

Neuroanatomist Jill Bolte Taylor had an opportunity 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 about how our brains define us and connect us to the world and to one another.
