Is Diplomacy Important?
Date: 11/10/2018 10:00:00 AM
Topic of Study: Behavioral Science
Presenter: Kristine Wilson-Slack
Synopsis: Diplomacy is the art of dealing with people in a sensitive and effective way, whether those people are nations, groups, or other individuals. Without diplomacy, you can neither protect your own interests and further your standing in life, nor can you work with others to accomplish more for yourself and others. Yet, many great leaders were terrible diplomats - boorish, crude, and thoroughly ignorant - and still accomplished much. Steve Jobs created a world class company worth billions and was horrible to his employees, while Richard Nixon opened the doors to China and the East, yet had no internal diplomatic skills. In Antifragile, by Nassim Taleb, its argued that the things which can withstand the least "diplomatic" treatment are the things that endure. While Freemasons value the ability to work together and be diplomatic and has produced many great leaders, there may be more life and passion in creating "Chaos out of Order." Perhaps we need a lack of diplomacy to shake up and improve the status quo.

Could Marcus Aurelius Been the First Freemason?
Date: 12/8/2018 10:00:00 AM
Topic of Study: Philosophy
Presenter: Andrea Katzer
Synopsis: Marcus Aurelius, Roman emperor from 161 to 180, was a practitioner of Stoicism. His writing called “Meditations” is a significant source of our modern understanding of ancient Stoic philosophy and could be considered the source of Masonic morality. The goal of Stoicism is freedom from passion through the pursuit of reason and apathy, in its ancient sense of being objective, unemotional and having clear judgment. In many respects, it bears a remarkable similarity to the ethical teachings of the Buddha and the four noble truths of Buddhism, and it also bears a remarkable similarity to Masonic teachings. Well explore how the writings of Marcus Aurelius perhaps built the foundations of Modern Freemasonry.

"Un ser humano es parte de un todo, llamado por nosotros el universo, una parte limitada en el tiempo y el espacio.Sus pensamientos y sentimientos como algo separado del resto ... una especie de ilusión óptica de su conciencia. Esta ilusión es una Una especie de prisión para nosotros, que nos restringe a nuestros deseos personales y de afecto para unas pocas personas más cercanas a nosotros. Nuestra tarea debe ser Liberarnos de esta prisión ampliando nuestro círculo de compasión para abrazar a todas las criaturas vivas y toda la naturaleza en subelleza."
