The June Topic of Conversation again asks What is True Family? We have all been born into a family and the majority of us have grown up within that family nucleus, however from what one understands from listening to other people’s personal accounts of their family life, our experiences of family can be very different from each other – even different from our siblings and cousins who are part of the same family group.
Two of our June articles offer insightful and different frames of reference for this complex discussion. Caroline’s article, ‘Is Family Good for Our Health?’, and an article written by members of the Joy of Ageing Esoterically team, ‘In Search of True Family’.
We are inviting our readers to share with us their own understanding of what a true family looks like to them. We are asking the question: In a true family, how would we be raised, how would we relate to each to other in a way that would ensure we grow up feeling loved, nurtured and appreciated for who we truly are?
