“ On the other hand, I think cats have Asperger's. Like me, they're very smart. And like me, sometimes they simply need to be left alone. ”
“ And now I know it is perfectly natural for me not to look at someone when I talk. Those of us with Asperger's are just not comfortable doing it. In fact, I don'treally understand why it's considered normal to stare at someone's eyeballs. ”

[close] Are you living with a disability, or know someone who is? Do you or someone you love struggle with a mental health condition like anxiety, schizophrenia, depression, or Asperger's syndrome? Or are you a student or professional in the field of disability or mental health? Then this book club might be for you! I'm hoping to use this Goodreads group as a public forum for discussions around the issues of disability, marginalization, freedom and dissent. In my opinion, issues of disability are intimately connected to the preservation of the social freedoms we all enjoy, as well as our continuing prosperity. If we can get the conversation around disability (physical, emotional and mental) right, many of the social problems we grapple with as a society would vanish. In this group, we'll read first-person narratives of disability and dissent, classics in the areas of political philosophy and metaphysics, and books on current and historical events. Particularly of interest are Western political philosophers from the 18th century onward, narratives of resistance (both fiction and nonfiction), comparative religion, and historical books about the Nazis. A little about me: My name is Helen, and I'm the founder of Grey Priestess Abbey, a group of shamans, mystics and monastics who are interested in furthering the public conversation around disability issues, mental health and human rights. Our work includes books and online courses soon to be published through Grey Priestess Press, our publishing imprint. To keep up with us, visit us at https://greypriestesspress.com. Leave your e-mail address for special updates and access to discounts, events and free e-goodies! You can also check us out on Facebook at https://greypriestessabbey.com, or on Twitter @greypriestess. My personal webpage is at https://helenoneil.com, where I talk about my work as a writer, journalist, educator, filmmaker and shaman. Welcome!
