Kinfolk’s sixteenth issue, The Essentials Issue, explores the different meanings of life’s fundamentals, the things that bring us back to our cores, and shows how we can implement them into our daily lives.
'Instead of determining how little we can live with, it’s about working out what we cannot live without.'
In my opinion, the excerpts taken from Peter Block’s book Community: The Structure of Belonging (pp. 49-59) is one of the most compelling and relevant articles of this issue. Moving away from the tangible concept of belonging, it discusses the ‘esoteric’ side of belongingness: a deap-seated desire we have to belong to something larger than ourselves, suggesting ways in which we can create a stronger sense of togetherness by fostering genuine support through our communities. 160 pages, offset-printed and perfect bound, full colour on uncoated paper. Printed in Canada.
