Welcome to the Chicken Yogi Show

The Chicken Yogi Show exists at the intersection of lived neurodivergent experience, spirituality, liberation, and creativity to help neurodivergent individuals connect with themselves and with the wider universe. Too many people are trying to tell how neurodivergent people should live in a world designed for neurotypicals–be more productive, do more, act more neurotypical–and few people are discussing the creative and spiritual lives of those who are neurodivergent.  A

An outspoken spirituality and creativity mentor, Kit Caelsto shares from their lived experience as an extra spicy neurodivergent person who exists in a trans and disabled body. They’re not afraid to talk about controversial topics or get into the policy weeds, all while maintaining information that especially the neurodivergent and chronically ill community can use. Expect to hear about  topics such as spirituality, pursuing connection, remembering who you are, yoga, meditation, socioeconomic impacts, liberation (autistic, disabled, and mad liberation), and the intersection of how living as part of a marginalized group can impact any or all of this.
