How Kindred Magazine Began

Kindred coverIn 2002, Kelly Wendorf began publishing the world’s first eco-parenting magazine called byronchild in Australia. Four years later, due to its success and positive endorsements, byronchild relaunched as Kindred magazine. In 2009, Kindred stopped publishing as a print magazine, and moved to an exclusively online format as an initiative of the  award-winning and venerable American nonprofit, Kindred World.

Today, Kindred Magazine is proud to archive hundreds of the magazine’s timeless articles as well as host an ongoing cyberspace gathering and revolutionary party. Kindred’s former US Contributing Editor, Lisa Reagan, and her national nonprofit, Kindred World, are carrying forward Kindred’s vision of connecting our human family around virtual campfires to author our new story of wholeness, worldview & wisdom, in a complex and evolving world.

The Mission and Vision

Kindred  Magazine and Community serves as a gathering place for families to explore and share their experiences of writing a new story of childhood, motherhood, fatherhood and the ever changing and evolving adventure of being fully human. Kindred Magazine explores social, political, spiritual, global and environmental issues. Kindred also recognizes the inherent importance and worth of our shared custodianship of the future of our world through our children, not only as parents but also as members of the human family. We support the quest of conscious parenting through considering the needs of children and parents within a world that is rapidly changing. Understanding that there are immense forces through which we direct our lives and make our own choices for ourselves and our children, Kindred respects each parent’s unique journey and the choices made along the way. We understand that there is no formula for meeting each person’s individual challenges and therefore trust each parent’s innate ability to know and intuit what is right for their child, for themselves and their families.

Our Readers

Kindred readers are thoughtfully exploring the disintegration of the Old Story, the emergence of a New Story and the space we, as Cultural Creatives, now occupy between these stories. Kindred readers trust our belief that the human reach for wholeness as individuals and in community is always happening, even if we can’t find that story shouted from the 24 hour droning mainstream media – which is why Kindred exists! We’re here to serve you.  Please contact us with your questions at info@KindredMedia.org.
