Friends and members of the Section for the Literary Arts and Humanities of the School for Spiritual Science in North America have met regularly and continuously in Fair Oaks since 2010.  In March 2020, we opened our meetings to Section friends and members worldwide by use of Zoom.

Our meetings have a hybrid character—local friends and members attend in-person and distant friends and members use Zoom. Livestreaming is used for some events.
