At the end of November David Gershan sent out a note saying he wanted to move towards an Advent gathering on zoom, and was looking for new voices and new energy to bring that about. I have no idea who or how many people he sent that message to, but apparently Katja Wishart and myself were the two people who responded. As it turned out, the endeavor was postponed, and then with David’s death, it came to a halt.
David had a strong wish to develop connections among the Anthroposophical friends in the Bay Area, especially through study and festival celebrations. Katja and I don’t have the experience or resources to carry this project, but we believe that if we reach out to you, friends of Anthroposophy in this area, we can find a small group to pull something together.
We have let time go by, so perhaps now the most reasonable target date would be St. John’s Day, June 24th. St. John’s Day is not represented in the book “Festivals and their Meaning,” but there are a few lectures by Steiner on St. John’s Tide in the Rudolf Steiner Archives. A small group could gather, maybe even over zoom, and study some of those lectures and see what inspiration might come to us, in the way of artistic work, stories, music, what have you, aiming for a zoom gathering On June 24th.
Please contact Katja or me if you would be interested in working on this.
