What can the life and work of Caravaggio teach us?
Date: 3/23/2019 1:00:00 PM
Topic of Study: Art
Presenter: Aksel Suvari
Synopsis: It is an almost universal human desire to express oneself artistically but only a few luminaries have been able to persist in human memory throughout the ages. One such light of the Renaissance period was Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio. In a tumultuous time of social change Caravaggio redefined the techniques and possibilities of the art of his time. Through it all he lived a life of danger, crime, high honors, riches and crushing poverty while at the same time rising through the ranks of the Knights of Malta. What can his troubled life teach us about the human relationship with Art and the Divine?

Is a belief in reincarnation beneficial or detrimental?
Date: 5/25/2019 1:00:00 PM
Topic of Study: Theology
Presenter: Sandy McKeown
Synopsis: Reincarnation is Latin in foundation and translates to "to take on the flesh again." Leaving one life and go into another; for the sole purpose of soul development and spiritual growth. The soul may take the form of human, animal, or plant depending on the moral quality of the previous life's actions. This doctrine is a central tenet of the Indian and Greek religions. Sogyal Rinpoche (a Tibetan lama) explains: "There would be no chance at all of getting to know death if it happened only once. Every time I hear the rush of a mountain stream, or the waves crashing on the shore, or my own heartbeat, I hear the sound of impermanence. These changes, these small deaths, are our living links with death prompting us to let go of all things we cling to." Join us as the group explores reincarnation from a traditional, modern and Freemason's perspective.

Do Good and Evil really exist?
Date: 6/22/2019 1:00:00 PM
Topic of Study: Philosophy
Presenter: Doyle Slack
Synopsis: In religion, ethics, and philosophy, the concept of "good and evil" is a dichotomy which appears to be universal. Every language has a word expressing good in the sense of "having the right or desirable quality" and bad in the sense "undesirable." But who decides what is “good” and what is “evil?” A requirement of becoming a Freemason is that one is upright - having a strong moral compass. We will discuss differing viewpoints of whether “good” and “evil” truly exist and how they relate to the concept of morality.

"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
