Dr. Jill Bolte Taylor is a trained and published Neuro-anatomist, Author, Motivational Speaker and CEO of My Stroke of Insight, Inc. and Jill Bolte Taylor BRAINS, Inc. She was also selected by Oprah Winfrey as one of the SuperSoul 100 awakened leaders who are using their voices and talent to elevate humanity. Dr. Taylor’s research specialty was in the postmortem investigation of the human brain as it relates to schizophrenia and the severe mental illnesses. On December 10, 1996, Dr. Taylor woke up to discover that she was experiencing a rare form of stroke. Two and a half weeks later, she underwent major brain surgery to remove a golf ball size blood clot that was placing pressure on the language centers in the left hemisphere of her brain. It took eight years for Dr. Taylor to successfully rebuild her brain - from the inside out. The New York Times bestselling memoir about her recovery and insights she gained into the workings of the brain is titled My Stroke of Insight: A Brain Scientist's Personal Journey. Dr. Taylor’s subsequent TED Talk was immediately viewed by millions of people around the world and launched Dr. Taylor into becoming a highly sought-after public speaker. She was chosen by TIME Magazine as one of the 100 Most Influential People in the World for 2008, and was the premiere guest on Oprah's Soul Series web-cast. In addition, she was interviewed by Oprah and Dr. Oz on The Oprah Winfrey Show in October, 2008. Visit Get the Inclusion Revolution CD by Sister Jenna. Like America Meditating.
