This new episode continues the story of Jill Bolte Taylor’s left hemisphere stroke and her life, as experienced through her Right Hemisphere. We focus on her recovery process and restoration of the use of both hemispheres of her brain.
Although Jill Bolte Taylor found life in the silent world of her Right Hemisphere to be seductively blissful, as though she was “enfolded by a blanket of tranquil euphoria,” she recognized that she needed, and wanted, to return to her “normal” life. To do so she needed to will herself out of her state of near paralysis and restore use of her left hemisphere function. Her path of recovery began with a little rock forward. Then another. She rocked & rocked & rocked some more.
