Are you curious how understanding your brain can better impact the quality of your life? If so, join us for this a 3-week session of interactive learning that will offer insights and access to the wisdom found in Whole Brain Living, The Anatomy of Choice and the Four Characters That Drive Our Life by Dr. Jill Bolte Taylor.

In Whole Brain Living, The Anatomy of Choice and the Four Characters That Drive Our Life, Dr. Bolte Taylor chronicles the experience of her rare stroke at the age of 37 where she lost her ability to walk, talk, read, write, or recall any of her past. It took eight years for her to rebuild her brain — to recover all physical, emotional, and thinking abilities. She blends neuroanatomy with psychology to illustrate how we can short-circuit emotional reactivity to lead more fulfilling and peaceful lives and create healthier relationships. She introduces readers to the four characters of the brain that make up who we are and presents a new framework to understand our behaviors, feelings, and emotions.

Participants are requested to read Whole Brain Living: The Anatomy of Choice and The Four Characters That Drive Our Life before the first session.

Dr. Bolte Taylor is an author, speaker, and Harvard-trained neuroanatomist. With views of over 27 million on her 2013 Ted Talk and her first book, My Stroke of Insight, A Brain Scientists Journey, being a best seller, Dr. Bolte Taylor is making strides in the public world. Excitingly, Dr. Bolte Taylor is scheduled to make a virtual appearance during one of our sessions.

The sessions will be facilitated by Rob Schware, Patricia Karpas and Lori Dube. Rob is certified in applying Whole Brain Living and is the co-founder and co-executive director of the Give Back Yoga Foundation. Patricia is a longtime media executive and host of the popular podcast Untangle, where she interviews experts, thought leaders, and authors on topics like neuroscience, brain health, general health and wellness, mindfulness, relationships, and more. She is also the co-founder of 5-star app, Meditation Studio. Lori Dube is a social worker, life coach and Jewish Mindfulness and Meditation facilitator. She has also facilitated meditation sits and groups on Wise Aging and Dating Later in Life.
