Virtual Conversations with Today’s Creative Leaders and Innovators
New Events Every Month on Wednesdays at 1PM Eastern
Join us for our November event on Wednesday, November 7, 2012 at 1PM Eastern where we'll interview Jackie McMillan on "Transforming Our Paradigms around Autism: The Hidden Promise."
All Creativity Cafe events are hosted by Creative Life Design Coach, Katie Curtin.
"Transforming Our Paradigms around Autism: The Hidden Promise."
Jackie McMillan is one among a number of extraordinary adults in the autistic spectrum who have been "coming out", writing and speaking publicly about their inner experience living with autism.
Her magnificent obsession has been to find ways for people with autism to thrive. Her own personal journey has led her to years of research and experimentations with therapies, diets, health and healing regimes and energy techniques.
Out of this has come a brilliant synthesis of current knowledge, and a holistic approach which she has been teaching to hundreds of parents, caregivers, educators and adults in the autism spectrum.
In this interview I’ll talk with Jackie about her personal journey "out of the fog" and the implications of her work in helping people with autism to develop their gifts and potential.
We'll discuss the spiralling numbers diagnosed with autism, its relationship to the degradation of the environment, and the collective measures needed to stem this crisis.
On another realm we'll explore the fascinating implications of recent scientific research on autism and what it's revealing about the nature of the human brain and its potential.
Bring a cup of your favorite brew to the call, sit back in a comfortable chair and enjoy!
