TSF West Coast Region U.S.A.
Welcome to the West Coast Station, one of many stops along your Stoic journey. Like the Stoic Fellowship itself, the West Coast Region consists of all volunteers and depends on grass-root efforts for all its energy and momentum. On this site you will find many opportunities to meet other Stoics, and find ideas and opportunities to help you practice virtue.
Our Collective Mission
To be a living and vibrant Stoic community that contributes positively to a peaceful, healthy and sustainable world; employing Reason to live, learn and love, as we aspire to wisdom, temperance, justice and fortitude.

Turn the change you find on the ground
into a way
to change the world!
Last year the Phoenix Fund, which is an endowment created to fund the operations and aspirations of The Stoic Fellowship, started by one person picking up a penny off the ground outside a gas station. Beginning with that penny, alert eyes from Feb. - Sept. 2017 and with Support from the Redwood Stoa raised nearly $20 for the fund. A humble beginning, but also an amazing journey.
*In 2018 the West Coast Community contributed $61.91 to the Phoenix Fund. Great job Wombats!
Join us this 2019 season by dedicating the change you find to the Phoenix Fund or your favorite charity.
