TED: Jill Bolte Taylor erklärt ihren Schlaganfall

Ein Schlaganfall ist eine durchweg grauenvolle Sache. Aber wenn man als Hirnforscher einen Schlaganfall erleidet kann man daraus auch einiges lernen, vorausgesetzt, man überlebt. Genau das ist Jill Taylor passiert, die in diesem bewegenden Vortrag auf der diesjährigen TED das erlebte ausführlich schildert. ‚Mindblowing‘ wäre hier als Adjektiv für den Vortrag wohl etwas unangebracht, beschreibt ihn aber ziemlich gut, auch wenn es zum Ende hin etwas esoterisch wird.

  3. Gegen Ende wird es esoterisch? Etwa bei 20%, hatte ich das Gefühl. Nach 9 Minuten konnte ich diese überpointierte Sprechweise nicht mehr aushalten, Schlaganfall hin oder her.

  5. I’ve been recommending a book by Jill Bolte Taylor called „My Stroke of Insight“ to everyone I know. It’s an amazing story, both uplifting and powerful on three levels: physical, emotional, and spiritual, but the spiritual aspect alone makes this the best book I’ve read all year.

    How often do you get to hear a neuroscientist describe having a stroke, nearly dying and finding Nirvana, and then making a miraculous recovery so that she’s back to teaching medical students!?!

    I came away with a renewed sense of understanding, wonder and hopefulness about the capabilities of the human brain. I give „My Stroke of Insight“ highest marks!

    You can get the book for just $16.47 with free shipping from Amazon!

  8. The New York Times Sunday Newspaper on May 25 had a great two page article on Jill Bolte Taylor and her book, „MY STROKE OF INSIGHT“. Her book is a must read and this NY Times article – called „A Superhighway to bliss“ is worth checking out too.

  11. I read „My Stroke of Insight“ in one sitting – I couldn’t put it down. I laughed. I cried. It was a fantastic book (I heard it’s a NYTimes Bestseller and I can see why!), but I also think it will be the start of a new, transformative Movement! No one wants to have a stroke as Jill Bolte Taylor did, but her experience can teach us all how to live better lives. Her TED.com speech was one of the most incredibly moving, stimulating, wonderful videos I’ve ever seen. Her Oprah Soul Series interviews were fascinating. They should make a movie of her life so everyone sees it. This is the Real Deal and gives me hope for humanity.
