Sensitive children and shamanic healing « Raising a Sensitive Child


This was interesting. Were shamans sometimes adult autists? I though of Temple Grandin’s point, that autists could be connectors through the “normal” human world and the animal world, or the world of science and music. Were autists, in traditional societies, sometimes also connectors to the spirit world? I thought of Besa and some of the other healers I’d met, all of whom were odd, spoke in riddles, were “away with the fairies,” as the British put it. That wasn’t so far from Rowan. Although it was interesting how all of them had integral roles in their communities rather than being marginalized. (p. 110)
