The Horse Boy
Mrs. B posted this on Face Book. I had not heard about the book or the documentary, but after reading the synopsis of the story and watching the trailer of the movie, it's on my list. I cannot even imagine what it would be like to have a normal child who then develops autism. I'm in that camp that thinks that vaccines play a role in autism. I'm also in that camp that believes that animals and all of Nature have the ability to heal humans, if we just let them.
Shamanism is something I am very interested in - not your "I did a weekend in Shamanic training and now I'm a Shaman" Shamanism, but the real stuff - the stuff we as humans used to know and practice before entering these forgetful times. Being so removed from Nature and her creations is a sickness from which we need healing. I think Shamans hold one of the keys to our healing as a species.
The move trailer can be found here.
