Kindred Spirit Magazine of Darlington England
Kindred Spirit has been the UK’s go-to guide to spiritual and compassionate living for over 25 years. It combines ancient wisdom with practical advice from contemporary teachers and authors. The magazine showcases new healing modalities, shares insightful interviews with the leading lights of the Mind, Body & Spirit world, and reports investigations and the latest discoveries in the field of spirituality, well-being and the inner workings of the human mind. KS is a source of information, inspiration and contemplation.
Kindred Spirit was founded in 1987 by Richard Beaumont and Patricia Yates, following the inspiration of ‘The Harmonic Convergence’ in which thousands of spiritual seekers gathered at sacred sites throughout the world. Seeing so many different people and spiritual paths, yet sensing a common direction of deep respect for natural wisdom and a yearning for higher truth, Patricia and Richard created Kindred Spirit to offer a platform to serve such wisdom and higher truths. While the founders have now moved onto different paths and projects, the magazine keeps their wonderful vision alive.
Since the very first issue published in November 1987 the magazine has featured all kinds of discoveries, whether they be in the field of spirituality or physical health and well-being or revelations concerning the inner workings of the human mind. New and progressive forms of complementary healthcare such as Zero Balancing and Holographic Re-patterning appear in Kindred Spirit next to articles on angels and the latest explanation of the workings of Stonehenge. We featured ground-breaking stories such as the inner temple of Damanhur, the psychic surgery of John of God, and the link between our genetic conditioning and the I-Ching – years before such news hits the mainstream publications.
Since summer 2014 Kindred Spirit has become part of Watkins Books, London’s oldest and largest esoteric bookshop founded in 1893 by John Watkins. Kindred Spirit continues to offer a variety of wisdoms, investigations and windows into the huge remit that comes under the title of Mind, Body and Spirit. We are here to put forward some of the alternatives, in line with a natural wisdom that elevates us all.
