More children will be diagnosed with autism this year than with AIDS, diabetes, and cancer...combined. In Autism and the God Connection, William Stillman presented extraordinary accounts of spiritual giftedness in autistic children and adults, persons often deemed intellectually inferior.

Now, in The Soul of Autism, Stillman shows:
• Why the unaccountable and dramatic rise in autism-with no single known cause-is a necessary part of our spiritual evolution.
• The secret component that makes autistic telepathy possible for us all, and how we can learn to use it.
• How certain autistics communicate with animals and how what the animals are saying is pertinent to the rest of us.
• How anyone can tap into the multi-sensory giftedness possessed by many autistic children and adults.

We have much to learn from our autistic friends about transcendence rising, a new humanity accessible for all. The Soul of Autism illuminates the way.

    Glimpsing the Sensitive Brilliant Spiritual Beauty of Autistics

    THE SOUL OF AUTISM is a very different kind of book about people who have been diagnosed with autism, since its author, William Stillman, has Aspergers Syndrome, something somewhat similar to autism. Not only does Stillman know first-hand what it is to live a life differently from others, he has dedicated much of his life to working with autistic children and their families. In THE SOUL OF AUTISM, Stillman finds ways to describe the autistic spiritually graceful way of living in ways that greatly expand our awareness of the value of autism. Stillman views the recent dramatic rise in autism not as something dreadful, but as a requisite part of human evolution, since autistic individuals tend to have tremendous sensitivity and multi-sensory giftedness (including telepathy, precognition, and animal communication). People who learn from autistic individuals tend to naturally become more compassionate, more considerate, more sensitive, and more loving. This beautifully written book suggests we consider autistics with tremendous reverence and respect, and that we consider the idea that the world needs autism, now more than ever. 'People with autism compel us to higher standards of deference and respect for humanity,' Stillman explains, as he recommends that we learn from autistics and while we assist them in learning in their own unique ways that work best for them. Stillman packs this book with dozens of page-turning stories about autistics who talk with animals, ghosts, and dead people... and who can at times know what will happen or has happened without normal direct experience. THE SOUL OF AUTISM is an excellent book for anyone who knows autistic friends, family members, students, or community members, as it provides an intimate and surprisingly revealing view of autistic life that has the power to expand our awareness of what it means to be conscious, to be aware, to be human.
