Why and how do we celebrate the Winter Solstice?
Date: 12/10/2017 1:15:00 PM
Topic of Study: Natural Science
Presenter: Darylee Foertsch
Synopsis: The Winter Solstice is an ancient ceremony performed by a myriad of cultures and people. The celebration of nature is considered to be a pagan practice, but Christianity also celebrates the birth of Jesus at the of the Winter Solstice. Why is it then that Man finds reason to worship nature whether directly or in symbol?

How is Masonry an alchemical process?
Date: 1/14/2018 1:15:00 PM
Topic of Study: Philosophy
Presenter: Velma Foertsch
Synopsis: In a mix of philosophy and science, we have alchemy. It is an ancient process to change base metals to gold, figuratively speaking. How does this relate to our every day lives, our lives as we grew into adulthood, and our lives daily now? How is Masonry an alchemical process more than we go through in our daily lives.

How can we read literature to understand it in a new light and use it in our Masonic journey?
Date: 2/11/2018 1:15:00 PM
Topic of Study: Literature
Presenter: Darylee Foertsch
Synopsis: It is said that there are 13 archetypal stories that Man has used in his literary expression. Joseph Campbell is often cited for the Hero's Journey; an explanation and template that books, classical and obscure alike, have used to bring us into the author's world. It is interesting that stories have such impact on our lives, whether they be short stories or long series. Perhaps it is time that we look at the symbols within the stories that inspire us the most to see the psychology behind the magic. With the new insight we gain from this exploration, it is the hope that we can see our world in a different light and understand the Masonic journey a little better.

Does genetic determinism rule our lives?
Date: 3/11/2018 1:15:00 PM
Topic of Study: Natural Science
Presenter: Darylee Foertsch
Synopsis: For the last century, we have been told by the scientific community that our genes determine everything. Is this a true statement? Are we a slave to our inherited genetic code? Join us as we take a look from a Masonic perspective at how the study of Epigenetics is changing the fatalistic view of Natural Selection.

How do Rewards and Punishments Affect our Behavior?
Date: 5/13/2018 1:15:00 PM
Topic of Study: Behavioral Science
Presenter: Darylee Foertsch
Synopsis: The philosophy of altruism has been taught in religions, secular society, and homes across the world and ages. The idea is of a romantic notion but the ability to do an act without thought of self, even in the purest sense, is impossible to do. Is this because the psyche of Man is built on rewards and punishments? Why must Man need such incentives to enforce behavior. Do we really know the full extent to what effect rewards and punishments have on behavior? Join us as we explore behavior and how it can be influenced so that we might better understand ourselves.

"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."
