Brain scientist Dr. Jill Bolte Taylor shared her experience of recovering from a brain hemorrhage/stroke via “My Stroke of Insight” book and viral TED Talk. Her second book “Whole Brain Living: the Anatomy of Choice and the Four Characters that Drive Our Life” blends neuroanatomy with psychology to show how we can short-circuit emotional reactivity and find our way to peace. Let’s investigate, discuss, and experience this exciting strategy for a new level of empowerment and peace. Two YouTube videos will pave the way for discussion and practice.
Note: Students may choose to watch two optional YouTube videos in advance and/or purchase and begin to read the book "Whole Brain Living." The video links may be found on the print receipt after registration.
