Kinship — our relationships with family, friends and community. Is one of the most basic of human needs, according to psychologist Abraham Maslow, who developed his famous Hierarchy of Needs in 1943. He postulated that once our physical needs are met, the next thing we look for is a sense of connection: community, friends, family, intimacy. Without these things, our lives can feel empty and cold, with little meaning.

What gives you a soul-satisfying sense of kinship? How do you maintain your bonds with friends and family? How do you connect to communities in today’s world? Make a connection with us and tell us your thoughts!
