Lifeways Week in England, A Heartwarming Experience for All Ages

Guest article by Mary Lee Plumb-Mentjes

Lifeways Week in England, A Heartwarming Experience for All Ages

"There is a Lifeways Week held each year in midsummer at Emerson College in Forest Row, England.  I had heard that that this event really succeeds in keeping all family members engaged, and this past summer I went to see how it was staged." 

 

In America the word, “Lifeways,” is associated primarily with providing care for the child between infancy and three years of age, when it is not feasible for the very young child to be at home with a parent during the day.  In England the emphasis of Lifeways is the encouragement of individuals all ages from the young child to teenagers, from young and old single adults, to parents and  grandparents, to join together in the celebration of Life.

Memories of Emerson College Founder, Francis Edmunds

Memories of Emerson College Founder, Francis Edmunds

The late Francis Edmunds, the inspirational and charismatic founder of Emerson College, often used to call in at the kitchen in Pixton during the evening and chat with the students, answering their queries and offering shrewd suggestions as to their next steps. Ethan Brent, a Foundation Year Student in 1972-73 (known as 'Jim Brent' in those days) took this picture in 1972 of Francis Edmunds in characteristic pose during one of these kitchen sessions. 

Many thanks to Ethan for forwarding it to us!
