My discovery of Families for Conscious Living some years ago was a revelation. FCL provides information and inspiration to help us return to our deep intuitions about parenting and family life that helps everyone thrive. It has a host of tools that provide solid but compassionate guidance for families on how to raise happy and healthy children. I recently was asked to join the board, a real honor.
I’m so grateful to have found a home for my non-profit initiative, The Evolved Nurturing Initiative, at Families for Conscious Living. These are some of the most dedicated, brilliant, generous, and passionate folks I’ve ever worked with. Each and every one sees the new story humanity must embrace to continue to evolved to our fullest potential. Families for conscious living is doing important work to ensure our modern culture doesn’t lose its biological inheritance of high nurturing care and respect for healthy and whole child development.
As a health and psychology journalist and mother, I’m so grateful for the work of Families for Conscious Living. Just when my mainstream media information channels make me feel that I’m living in the twilight zone, where emotions and attachments are superfluous, FCL brings me back to REAL life. The realities of raising children are often so distorted in modern society, but Kindred Media, The Evolved Nurturing Initiative, and all the resources FCL synergizes continue to show us how beautiful and fulfilling reality can be. As we inch our way toward more cultural and political support for emotionally healthy families, the devoted thought leaders at FCL will contribute to the knowledge base that buttresses that cause.
FCL is a great resource for parents and is truly making a difference in the lives of families! As a parent educator and coach, I have found the information and wisdom vital and instrumental to helping parents make conscious choices.
Families for conscious living helps provide a significant library of resources for parents to help them grow in their journeys with their children. FCL is always striving to put out the newest information and interview professionals in the conscious and attachment parenting fields so that everyone is always learning and growing, and I just love that they are an organization that is focused on forward growth and sharing that information with the public. Thanks FCL for all of your hard work!
Families For Conscious Living help to bring us vital education on how we can change the world we live in, not just for us and our children, but for generations to come. The world needs more conscious parents. The resources shared in FCL is the first vital step to make that change.

Families for Conscious Living serves families in ways no other organization does - with creative and knowledgeable leadership and a heart for parents and children--along with cutting-edge strategies and pioneering news. It's a pleasure to partner with FCL and feel encouraged that together we can change the course of lives and the world through compassionate parenting.
Families for Conscious Living is all about connection. And, for those of us who are working to radically transform the ecology of childhood in our own communities across the US and the globe, Families for Conscious Living reminds us that we are not alone on this journey and that we are each a significant part of the collective birthing of a new story of childhood. Families for Conscious Living is a playground for the imagination of any changemaker who is a part of the movement working to transform childhood and I am personally deeply grateful for FCL and the community it has connected me to!
Families for Conscious Living is illuminating the strands that connect those who are consciously involved in the movement to awaken the planet. I feel extremely lucky to be a part of this network and as a graduate student at UW-Madison studying mindful wise parenting I could not feel more supported in the work I do. Families for Conscious Living connects the head, the heart, and the soul.
Families for Conscious Living is an incredible resource that supports families and those who work with families. Resources are easily accessible, very interesting and incredibly valuable. FCL weaves the latest research from many fields into practical, easy-to-apply suggestions, applications and programs that support parents and professionals. Their reach is international and their offerings always feel like they are right next door. Thank you so much, FLC, for all you continue to do that makes our jobs easier and more effective!!
FCL and it's published materials are a valuable resource for those working toward a world where there is more awareness and consciousness about what is important in birth , childrearing , education and healthy families. We distributed their brochures and educational material at our recent conferences (see www.birthkeepersummit.com. Their staff gave volunteer support to us in the development of our programs. Many thanks to Lisa Reagen and the rest of FCL staff.
My favorite place to share from! I share these articles everywhere - on all of my parenting pages and groups.
As a parenting educator, who promotes attachment/connection parenting, I know how much parents need and appreciate the support and validation, for their "non- mainstream " parenting choices, that FCL provides to parents and professionals. For many, it can mean the difference between having the courage and conviction to follow their heart connection with their children or secumbing to the societal pressure to conform to the prevailing, disconnecting parenting norms."
I find the articles on Kindred to be a source of inspiration and Information that makes a positive difference in my work to educate and empower parents, and I love being able to send parents and colleagues there as a resource.
I am so consistently impressed with the work of Families for Conscious Living! Not only does it challenge me to live more authentically, with more awareness, honesty, and love - but I can see the ripple effects across so many different communities and families. It's truly inspiring and I am so grateful FCL exists in our wold.
As a parent educator, counselor, and author I am so thankful to have Kindred and Conscious Living to point parents towards. Here we can find a wealth of resources that are practical, insightful, and well— enlightening! If I need the latest research and heart/mind thinking, I head to Kindred. There is much about Kindred that is unique but one of the things I especially value is that it is global in its perspective and its reach—which of course makes perfect sense in a world in which it is increasingly apparent to us all that what any one of us does—perhaps most especially in raising our families—impacts the whole. We are all in this together, we need to pull together. I can’t speak to highly of the quality, depth and breadth, of the content offered on this site.
FCL and its nonprofit initiatives are providing a a needed vision and dialogue around shifting our personal and collective "stories." They occupy a special and unique place among nonprofits exploring the roots of sustainability and deserve our support and donations.
If we are going to make real change on the planet, then it must start with exploring this vital question: what conditions are needed to create a just, compassionate and sustainable society? Families for Conscious Living not only asks this essential question, but seeks also to find answers, and support a community around those answers. What an ambitious calling for a non profit, and how well they answer that calling.
