This episode follows the work of neuroscientist Jill Bolte Taylor, who experienced a stroke and had her left brain (including verbal processing) go off-line in an instant. Her story leads us into an understanding of the four "characters" in our brains (two in the left hemisphere and two in the right), which are the sources of our self-focus, our fear, our drive towards connection, and our ability to experience awe, wonder, and mysticism. What is revealed is a staggering reality: we have the power to choose which brain circuitry to run and which brain characters to empower on a daily basis. In this episode we dive into the what of Bolte Taylor’s research and, more important, how we can implement life-changing practices that change our thinking and our lives.
