An invitation from The Academi Of Life to spend a night with Dr. Jill Bolte Taylor, a Harvard-trained Neuroanatomist, Lecturer and Author on:

May 11, 2021 at The New York Society of Ethical Culture in New York City.

“Dr. Jill Bolte Taylor got a research opportunity few brain scientists would wish for: She had a massive stroke, and watched as her brain functions — motion, speech, self-awareness — shut down one by one. An astonishing story.”

Dr. Jill Bolte Taylor is a Harvard-trained and published neuroanatomist. Her brother’s brain disorder and schizophrenia led Dr. Taylor to dedicate her career to studying severe mental illnesses. She is the author of the New York Times bestselling memoir My Stroke of Insight: A Brain Scientist’s Personal Journey. Dr. Taylor gave a presentation at the TED Conference, which has been watched by over ten million and has become the most viewed TED Talk to date. She was chosen as one of TIME Magazine’s 100 Most Influential People in the World.

Dr. Taylor was the premiere guest on Oprah’s Soul Series webcast and was interviewed by Oprah and Dr. Oz on The Oprah Winfrey Show. She’s now an artist as well as a scientist, creating anatomically correct stained-glass replicas of brains that are sold as fine art and also travels the country on behalf of the Harvard Brain Bank as the “Singin’ Scientist.” Dr. Taylor is an adjunct lecturer at the Indiana University School of Medicine.

o Learn how to get your brain to do what you want it to do.
o Learn who is who inside of you.

Join us for a special evening of inspirational storytelling, spiritual conversations, and meaningful music: an evening of “uncommon depth.” Jill will be joined by critically acclaimed singer/songwriter Carrie Newcomer. Presenting on the same stage, author and songwriter weave a seamless story of insight into the wonders of the human brain and the resilience of the human spirit through their own stories of change and transformation.

The evening is designed to be a completely enveloping experience as Jill and Carrie engage the audience in an intellectual discussion, while taking them on a powerful journey into the consciousnesses of their minds, bodies and hearts and at the same time, creating a space of safety, joy and celebration of life.

‘Pay attention to what you are thinking, and then decide if those are thoughts that are creating the kind of life you want created.’ – Jill Bolte Taylor
