Does the Theology of Star Wars Teach Us That All Religion is Doomed to Failure?
Date: 10/20/2018 2:30:00 PM
Topic of Study: Theology
Presenter: Chris Osborn
Synopsis: The stories of the Star Wars franchise show us that what appears to be good is not always as apparent as it seems and that evil does not really have much to offer, or does it? Perhaps it is not as clear cut as we would like it to be. However the ongoing battle between the Jedi and the Sith has some interesting correlations to real life and Freemasonry, and can perhaps help us to understand the purpose of religion and whether or not it will ultimately succeed or fail. May the Force be with you!

What is the Serpent Fire Within and How Do We Access It?
Date: 12/15/2018 2:30:00 PM
Topic of Study: Esotericism
Presenter: Tracy Leavey
Synopsis: The first known documentation of the practice of accessing the serpent fire dates back to the Vedic writings of the Upanishads. This scientific and spiritual practice was seen by its practitioners as a "sacred" science and technology that was only passed along through oral tradition from master to the chosen student. Is this serpent fire the pathway to a higher consciousness? Is it possible to access a state of bliss by tapping into this sacred space within our own bodies? Are there consequences? In Freemasonry we are seekers of higher knowledge not only within ourselves but to pass along to our fellow man. We join together the positive, the negative and participate from a place of neutrality. Is this place of higher consciousness the energy of the serpent fire? Come explore with us.

"A human being is a part of a whole, called by us universe, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something separated from the rest ... a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty."
