How it feels to have a stroke

Neuroanatomist Jill Bolte Taylor had an opportunity few brain scientists would wish for: One morning, she realized she was having a massive stroke.

The way Dr Taylor describes her stroke is as a profound spiritual experience. The interesting thing is that Ram Dass describes his stroke in similar terms. He called it “being stroked by God”. You can get more on his perspective in the documentary Fierce Grace.
