Women Meditation

Congratulations to Liz Lewinson on the release of the latest edition of Women Meditation and Power!

38247527Women, Meditation, and Power

Genre: Non-Fiction/ Women’s Studies

Publication Date: January 7, 2020 (New Edition)

Women are the power species on the planet. Why? Because life force or kundalini flows through women more strongly than in men. The primary aspect of the female person is power. The primary aspect of the male person is love and humility. Somewhere back in time, the roles got switched.

Men in charge have unwittingly created a heavy, inflexible power structure that lurches towards destruction. Now is the time for the woman in all of us to up-end the confusion, unravel the deep-rooted lines of misunderstanding, and make it right.

“In a Different Key: The Story of Autism” by John Donvan and Caren Zucker

9780307985705

 

I’ll be honest, this book took me weeks to finish. I’m a speed-reader. It took me weeks. But, seriously, this is not a bad thing in any way.

“In a Different Key” reads similar to books you can find in anthropology courses-meticulous in the retelling of history in a very personable way. It opens with the first boy diagnosed here in America and goes down the timeline (and across the ocean a few times) of all the superstars in the field (as well as at least one villain).

A truth becomes very obvious early on, that the parents who love their children were the driving force behind the social changes we have. And that is amazing.

This book keeps chugging along, documenting the break-throughs and pitfalls of Autism research and social change, right up to present day. It closes there, with the most meaningful message I have ever seen in any ASD book: that there are no “odd men out”. Autism, as of right now, is considered a spectrum. And those on either end are going to have radically different experiences, but it is up to us as a society to embrace and support whatever that reality is for them.

I was happy with this book. I myself am the parent of wonderful children with autism. Never once was the wording offensive, or dehumanizing. That was really important to me. I won’t finish a book that I feel like would upset them if they came across it. And there are plenty of those.

This does read a bit like a textbook, but it’s a glowingly warm one, sectioned off with very fascinating stories in every single chapter. And so worth the read if you are in any way interested or impacted by any form of autism.  Get it, along with some Temple Grandin books.

*I received this book from Blogging for Books for this review.
