Can a number reveal your destiny?
Date: 12/15/2018 2:30:00 PM
Topic of Study: Esotericism
Presenter: Judith Champion
Synopsis: Numbers are not simply tools for measuring and quantifying. Where and when did written numbers arise? As mathematics became more abstract, numbers and formulas became the universal language of science. Philosophers have attributed properties and energies to them, metaphysical and even spiritual. In religious contexts, 3, 7, 12, 30 and 40 occur frequently. Why was five revered by the Phythagoreans? Numerology grew out of their philosophy of numbers. The numerical values of your birth date and name may indicate lifelong energy patterns or influences. Certain numbers are prominent in Freemasonry and carry symbolic meaning especially when combined with geometry: 3-triangle, 4-square, etc. Are numbers entities that help us understand the natural world and forces? We will explore these ideas together.

Is it possible to talk in a way that kids will listen and to listen so that kids will talk?
Date: 1/19/2019 7:28:00 PM
Topic of Study: Behavioral Science
Presenter: Jill Alessandra Garza
Synopsis: There are many ways that people deal with children, giving advice, instruction, demands. Some see children as empty slates, needing us to fill them full of information. Others may see children as a fountain of possibility, needing the right conditions to unfold their inner potential. Is it possible to talk in a way that kids will listen? As masons we envision ourselves as rough stones that must be hewn and polished to become a useful part of something bigger. Is there a way to work with children that is cooperative from both the adult and child? That touches and unfolds the child’s genuine self?

Is the book The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho merely a story of chasing after your dreams or is it about self discovery and improvement?

Topic of Study: Literature
Presenter: Diego Segatore
Synopsis: The book The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho is about a lonely Shepard named Santiago who, after dreaming of the pyramids of Egypt, goes to a gypsy who tells him to find his personal treasure/dream. This is further encouraged by an old man claiming to be a king. He sells his flock, and with the money he sets out on an adventure that starts by crossing to Mediterranean and losing all of his money in Morocco. This does not dissuade him and he keeps on following his personal treasure. On the way he is met with not just monetary set-backs, he also falls in love with a woman and is tempted to not continue with his journey. Ultimately he keeps on going and meets an alchemist who reveals to him what the true treasure in life is. When Santiago asks the Alchemist why others haven't been able to turn base metals into gold the alchemist states "They were only looking for Gold.", this sentence sums up the conclusion of the book that the treasure Santiago finds is nothing like what he expected at the beginning of his journey.

Did Freemasonry shape the thinking and actions of the liberators of South America as in the United States?
Date: 11/16/2019 7:09:00 PM
Topic of Study: History
Presenter: Diego Segatore
Synopsis: The majority of Americans are aware that many of our founding fathers in the United States (and sizable proportion of our Presidents) have been Freemasons. What most don't know is that this fact was not relegated to only the northern section of the American continent (or two Continents, depending who you ask). The two main liberators of South America, San Martin in the South and Bolivar in the North), were active Freemasons while leading their armies in battle against the Spanish Empire. In Argentina in particular Freemasons were not just fighting in the battlefield against the Spaniards but also against the Clerical wing of the liberation movement in setting up the institutions of the new country. Many claim that the secular nature of the these institution, for example the public education system (something unheard of in Catholic countries) is completely due to Freemasons making the decisions. All of this brings us to the conclusion that the ideas that Freemasonry gives its brethren inevitably leads to thoughts of liberation and freedom from oppressive forces, surely there must be a link given all the hard data to support it.

"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."
