Was Christine de Pisan a Feminist?
Date: 12/8/2018 3:30:00 PM
Topic of Study: Art
Presenter: Anouk Van Opstal
Synopsis: The French poet Christine de Pisan (1365-1430) was arguably the first female author in Europe to make her living as a writer. Famous for her poetry and love ballads, de Pisan also wrote prose and political treatises. With the encouragement and aid of royals de Pisan completed a biography of Frances King Charles V. Her final work was a poetic eulogy dedicated to Joan of Arc. But the literature for which de Pisan is most celebrated today are her writings that pressed for womens rights. During this M.P.S. we will discover some of her works and debate about how they advocates for womens rights. Lastly, we will discuss the Honorable Order of Universal Co-Masonrys free admission to both man and woman.

Is the Story of Jesus Christ a Solar Story?
Date: 1/12/2019 3:30:00 PM
Topic of Study: Theology
Presenter: Isaac Levy
Synopsis: Christianity has been one of the most influential forces for the last thousand years. The story of Jesus is essential to Christianity as a core part of its philosophy. However, Christianity may have incorporated other aspects of existing religions in order to convert more members. The sun was a subject of worship in ancient times. Is the Bible something that should be taken literally or are there any esoteric messages or meanings contained within its texts? Is the story of Jesus Christ a solar story?

How Can We Use Esotericism in Our Own Development?
Date: 4/13/2019 3:30:00 PM
Topic of Study: Esotericism
Presenter: Lylia Gonzalezfrayle
Synopsis: The etymology of “Esotericism” is the Greek adjective ‘esoterikos’ meaning: “belonging to the inner circle.” This word first appeared in 1828 in the work of French writer Jacques Matter “Histoire critique du gnosticisme.” There are many different types of Esoteric traditions that have expanded across the globe, each with their own usages and understanding. With Esotericism often thought of as a science of redemption and the philosophy of evolutionary processes, we will discuss how Esotericism is important to the human experience and how Freemasonry, just like science and religion, has also utilized its philosophies and archetypes.

How Do We Make Tough Decisions?
Date: 6/8/2019 3:30:00 PM
Topic of Study: Behavioral Science
Presenter: Anouk Van Opstal
Synopsis: We spend an inordinate amount of time, and a tremendous amount of energy, making choices in everyday situations. We also manage to often turn trivial choices into a tortured mental task. How do we make hard choices? How does one navigate a world of seemingly infinite alternatives? And what happens when the choice is "made" for us"? We will discuss the relationship between reason, value, and instinct and how we navigate the sea of pros and cons as we make decisions that shape our lives as well as how does Freemasonry help us in making these choices.

"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."
