The Birth of the San Diego Branch

    "At Eastertide, 1989 the San Diego area members received an invitation to unite in the formation of a branch.  It stated that "We believe there are ways we could help one another in our respective anthroposophical endeavors - and help the being Anthroposophia to incarnate more fully among us.  We propose that, while maintaining our individual anthroposophical undertakings, we unite to form a San Diego Area Branch."  On May 6, the decision to establish the branch was made, and ten members signed a request addressed to the Western Regional Council for their recognition and support.  In reply, not only did the Council give their recognition and support, but they agreed to hold their fall meeting in San Diego so that they could be present at our recognition ceremony.   

    On October 7th, our celebration was held to honor the formal establishment of our new area branch.  The celebration was attended by six members of the Western Regional Council, anthroposophists from as far away as Los Angeles and Tucson, and some 30 members from our area....

   Each of the founding members of the Branch spoke briefly about their respective paths to anthroposophy.  founding members are Jean Binder, Jan Boss, Bonnie Coffman, Alice Gardner, Dorothy Morgan, Sarah Morgan, Richard Rettig, Loretta Scott, Candace Stryker Teutsch and Stephen Vallus...

   And here, perhaps a quote from Awakening to Community by Rudolf Steiner would help to express our deep feeling for this initiative:

   "We must make anthroposophy real by learning to be aware in anthroposophical community life that where people join in anthroposophical tasks together, there they experience their first awakening in the encounter with the soul-spiritual element in their fellows.  Human beings wake up in the mutual encounter with other human beings.  As each one has new experiences between his encounters with these others, and has grown a little, these awakenings take place in an ever new way as people go on meeting.  The awakenings undergo a burgeoning development...We are firmly grounded inour understanding of things of the spirit only when we do not rest content with abstract spiritual concepts and a capacity to express them theoretically, but instead grow into a sure belief that higher beings are present with us in a community of spirit when we engage in spiritual study."
