[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 could 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 Shaman Press, an indie press that aims to further the public conversation around disability issues, mental health and human rights. My work includes e-books, journalism and online courses that will soon be offered on our websites and other platforms like Amazon. To keep up with me, visit me at https://greyshamanpress.com (currently under construction). Leave your e-mail address for special updates and access to discounts, events and free e-goodies! You can also check me out on Facebook at https://greypriestessabbey.com, or on Twitter @greyshaman33. Finally, I'm on Parler @greyshamanpress. My personal webpage is at https://helenoneil.com, where I talk about my work as a writer, educator and shaman. Welcome!
