Video Friday

I did not have a stroke, but I did have a little experience that has brought me much pause of late.

I listened to a podcast of this brain-genious Jill Bolte Taylor, and I was speechless, but if I had to find words, I would say I found it inspirational.

I could not imbed the video, so click here to watch it instead.

I ordered her book to read as soon as I finish RATS. If you have about 15 minutes, it's really worth watching this video clip.

Very interesting! Actually my dentist was just talking about her on Wednesday at work. . .she's leaving dentistry to go back to education (she used to be a teacher) and specifically brain-based learning. She has a daughter that is highly-gifted and ADHD. She's fancinated by the way that the right brain vs. left brain works and lives.

So, I've never been to NYC - but last night I had the craziest dream that I was there. And wouldn't you know it - of all the people in NY, I ran into you and your visiting mom. You two were adorable. Just thought I'd share!

I just saw your pull-ups commercial on TV. Love the long hair!

Dear Kage,
Thank you so much for sharing Dr. Taylor's TED video, and recommending her book MY STROKE OF INSIGHT. I can't remember when I've seen such an inspirational video, and the book is wondrous and magical. I'm going to give it to my children and friends.
Do you know where Dr. Taylor talks or if there is any place to find programs that teach the wisdom of connection and right brain being and all her other great lessons?
Also, I found some Oprah interviews with Dr. Taylor on YouTube. You might want to check them out as well.
I'd call this a transformational movement more than anything, wouldn't you?
Cynthia
