Jill Bolte Taylor in Oprah's Soul Series



One of my friends in Tadoku group introduced Jill Bolte Taylor's astonishing lecture hold in TED on the Tadoku Board.
I let her know Oprah's interviews series with Eckhart.
We are both delightful to share great video sites each other.
And now, What a coincidence, Jill appears in Oprah's interview!

I can understand the meaning of Eckhart's spiritual talk by the help of Jill's real story of her brain damage.

Hi, emmiesan.
Thanks for visiting my blog and mentioning about me on your blog as well. I get so excited to watch the Oprah's Soul series with Jill Bolte Taylor as if we are the ones who introduce Jill to Oprah.
I've inspired by you a lot. I feel blessed to get to know you through TADOKU.
Hope to work with you for something like a book club or storytelling in the future.
Love
Chico

Oprah's 4 interviews with Jill Bolte Taylor were the first that Oprah did after Eckhart Tolle and they take everything Tolle talks about to another level. Oprah's copy of Jill's book, MY STROKE OF INSIGHT, was dog-eared and all marked up and kept reading from it the way she read from A New Earth and recommended it highly.

Oprah's recommendation was enough for me. I read My Stroke of Insight and I loved it too. This story is as inspiring as The Last Lecture or Tuesdays with Morrie - and even better, it has a Happy Ending!

I bought the book on Amazon because they have it for 40% off retail and they also had an amazing interview with Dr Taylor that I haven't seen anywhere else - Here is the Amazon link: http://www.amazon.com/My-Stroke-Insight-Scientists-Personal/dp/0670020745/ref=pd_bbs_2?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1211471755&sr=1-2

Hello, Robinson.
Welcome to my blog! I wonder how you got here... Have we e-met somewhere on the net? I usually buy books on Amazon Japan, so I need to wait to get that book. I've read Tuesdays with Morrie and loved it. I'd like to read the last Lecture, too. Thanks for the Amazon link. I watched the Jill's video at the TED, there are many more inspiring videos.

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.

Thank you very much for leaving your comment here. I hope I can read 'My stroke of Insight' ASAP. I guess there are many people suffered from the same symptoms and experienced just the same thing as Jill did, but not everybody can make their experience into such a hopeful story. I agree that making a movie is a wonderful idea to let people know her story all over the world. I wonder if there is a board on the net talking about the next step.
