Does the art of Leonardo da Vinci contain hidden secrets of sacred geometry?
Date: 3/3/2018 10:00:00 AM
Topic of Study: Art
Presenter: Lisa Woodworth
Synopsis: Is there more to art than meets the eye? If you look closely at the paintings of Leonardo da Vinci you may be surprised to find evidence of the golden ratio in many of them. His famous mural of “The Last Supper” has been said to have many clear examples of divine proportion. Was da Vinci's use of sacred geometry part of his conscious creative process? Some scholars do not think so because it is not verifiable. How deep does sacred geometry run in his art? In this meeting, we will explore various works of da Vinci and show how it all ties into Freemasonry and the Geometrician of the Universe.

Topic of Study: Theology

Synopsis: There are many philosophies, religions, and belief systems which include the presence of Angels, Elementals, and Beings of Light. Literature expanding across ages and endless cultures have the presence of such entities. What are they and how does Freemasonry view such archetypes?

Can the Tools of Logic Prove God exists?
Date: 5/5/2018 10:00:00 AM
Topic of Study: Formal Science
Presenter: Pamela McDown
Synopsis: Ontology is a branch of philosophy that attempts to answer questions like, "What is real?" or "Is there a God?" Many people, both believers and nonbelievers, doubt that Gods existence can be proved or even argued about. Others, however, think it is possible that thinking through the nature of things is an important first step in opening the mind to possibilities. What, then, is the best argument for the existence of God? In this meeting, we will examine the work of philosophers who have made a case for Gods existence and learn how Freemasons use the tools of logic to search after truth.

Is the Wizard of Oz a Spiritual Allegory?
Date: 6/2/2018 10:00:00 AM
Topic of Study: Literature
Presenter: Lisa Woodworth
Synopsis: Over the years, both the book and movie of the Wizard of Oz have fueled a number of theories as to the storys symbolic meanings. Some of the analyses have been overtly political, some have been spiritual, some even monetary. Often interpreting metaphorical language is in the eye of the beholder. During this meeting, we will try to answer the question, "what is the Wizard of Oz really about?" Please join us and see what Freemasons might think about Dorothys quest and what the yellow brick road signifies.

How Does Intuition and Imagination Guide the Awakening One?
Date: 7/7/2018 10:00:00 AM
Topic of Study: Esotericism
Presenter: Tom Simota
Synopsis: Intuition and imagination have been described as two expanding wings of soul power. How does discernment factor in and why should we pay attention to impressions? During our time together, we shall explore where the psychic and spiritual meet, consider spiritual disciplines and practices to strengthen our connection with intuition and examine how intuition is used by Freemasons.

Do Planets Make Music?
Date: 9/1/2018 10:00:00 AM
Topic of Study: Art
Presenter: Pamela McDown
Synopsis: The epic space flights of the Voyager I and II soaring across our Solar System have left researchers on the edge of their seats for decades. Passing by Uranus, Jupiter and Saturn, the probes recorded various emissions and electromagnetic vibrations. NASA had the idea to make those into sound recordings. As it turns out those sounds are deeply familiar to the human ear. Is this just a coincidence or does the Universe have a soundtrack? Join us as we listen to music that is out of this world. Learn how the music of the spheres echoes the teachings of Freemasonry.

Does Masonry share a deeper link with Catholicism?
Date: 10/6/2018 10:00:00 AM
Topic of Study: History
Presenter: Tom Simota
Synopsis: At times, the Catholic church has seemed to be at odds with Freemasonry, but is there a deeper link between the two that most people are not aware of? Who are the Templars and how are they connected? During our time together, we shall explore ideas to see if the Masonic Legend is more closely woven together with tenets of Catholicism. Perhaps we will discover together a "middle ground" that bears fruit to ponder for continued study.

What is the Function of the Archetype of the Trickster?
Date: 11/3/2018 10:00:00 AM
Topic of Study: Behavioral Science
Presenter: Lisa Woodworth
Synopsis: The “Trickster” is a Jungian archetype that appears in the narratives of many stories. You may know the trickster as the colorful character that entertains us by breaking taboos and playing tricks. He makes us laugh, often giving comic relief to any situation. While his actions are sometimes marginal in terms of morality, is the presence of a trickster a bad thing? Some scholars have the opinion that the elaborate schemes of these shapeshifters serve an important role in society. Please join us as we explore the role of the trickster and how this unique archetype has a connection to the teachings of Freemasonry.

What is the Difference Between Thought and Belief?
Date: 12/1/2018 10:00:00 AM
Topic of Study: Philosophy
Presenter: Tom Woodworth
Synopsis: According to one philosopher, "The unexamined life is not worth living." All people examine their lives to some extent. Here begins the initial journey of thinking about thinking. Is a thought the same thing as a belief? If not, what makes a thought a belief? In this meeting we will look at several primary ways in which philosophers think about perceptions and belief systems and how the study of philosophy relates to Freemasonry. Each persons own philosophy of life is a flame within, sometimes obvious and sometimes hidden. Join us in uncovering the mystery.

"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."
