Could Marcus Aurelius Have Been the First Freemason?
Date: 8/25/2019 2:30:00 PM
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.

What is Liberty?
Date: 9/22/2019 2:30:00 PM
Topic of Study: Philosophy
Presenter: Kathy Bidwell
Synopsis: There's much talk these days about our liberties; are they inherently ours or is it something we must pursue, as in the infamous “pursuit of life, liberty and happiness”? In this discussion, we'll explore the intangible concept of liberty, its five general types, and the significance liberty has to us as individuals and to society in general. We'll also discuss the relationship between liberty and Freemasonry.

Why do humans create ceremonies...?
Date: 10/27/2019 2:30:00 PM
Topic of Study: Theology
Presenter: Karen ONeil
Synopsis: This study session will explore ceremonies of remembrance in various cultures and throughout the Ages, analyze their differences and commonalities, and address the question: "Why do we seek to remember?" Some contend that it is human instinct to remember those who have passed on, perhaps an innate need to remain connected with the premise of there being an afterlife. Others would argue that the ceremonies are mere examples of insecurities and fear of mortality.

"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."
Albert Einstien
